While hair grows at a relatively constant rate of a half-inch per month, you can make the process feel faster by getting regular trims, moisturizing, using strong-hold styling products, pinning the bangs back and eventually incorporating them into your style. Growing bangs out takes several months and requires deep conditioner, strong-hold styling products and pins.
- Get regular trims
While it seems counter-intuitive, getting regular trims makes hair grow out more quickly and more evenly. Have your bangs trimmed one-eighth of an inch every six to eight weeks.
- Apply deep moisturizers
Keeping hair healthy is another key to growing out bangs quickly. Apply a deep conditioner every one to two weeks, depending on the condition of the hair. Leave it on for a minimum of five minutes, and rinse with cool water.
- Use heavy styling products
When styling the bangs, especially in the first stages of growing them out, use heavy products such as molding clay or strong-hold gel. These keep the short hairs weighted down.
- Style to the side
Once the bangs start getting into your eyes, part all the hair on one side, and swing the bangs in the other direction. Use a strong-hold hairspray to hold them in place.
- Use pins to hold them back
When the bangs are too long even for the side part, Elle Magazine suggests using pins or barrettes to hold them back.
- Incorporate them into your style
Once the bangs are long enough, incorporate them into your hairstyle by rolling them and pinning them back. Another option is braiding them back.
