Despite popular belief, frequent trims do not cause your hair to grow faster. Human hair grows at a constant rate, about 1/2 inch each month, no matter how much you cut it. While your hair may grow more in the summer, hair growth is controlled by hormones, not trimming. However, having your hair trimmed keeps split ends at bay, which does improve the hair’s appearance.
It’s important to make sure your hair can retain moisture so that it doesn’t become dry and brittle, as this can lead to breakage. Water temperature can help with shampooing. After shampooing, rinse with cold water. This process seals the shaft of your hair and prevents damage.
If you enjoy the way that the hair look after getting it wet in the ocean water, try products that can mimic the ocean’s effects.

Add ten drops or so of lavender oil, and you have bottled ocean water.
Try to reduce the amount of times you use a blow dryer.

To quickly dry your hair, before using a blow dryer you should towel dry it before hand.
