How Do I Make My Bangs Grow Faster?

By Staff WriterLast Updated Apr 8, 2020 4:18:02 PM ET

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
