Here is how to grow out your buzz cut.

Growing Out a Buzz Cut

Whether you made an impulse decision to chop it all off or you’re freshly back home from boot camp, growing out a buzz cut can be surprisingly tricky. Of course, much of the process of growing your hair back out simply involves being patient. But there are also ways to make the most of your hair transformation as you move from a buzz cut to a full head of hair. 

Consider Your Shampoo

If you sported your buzz cut for a while, odds are you haven’t put a ton of thought into your shampoo. But the time you spend growing out your buzz cut is the perfect time to rethink which brand you prefer and to revitalize your shampoo routine. 

One great shampoo to consider is Tea Tree Shampoo from Paul Mitchell. The refreshing peppermint will provide an invigorating sensation for your scalp and the natural oils will help you avoid dandruff as you gain more hair volume. Be sure to shampoo your hair at least once per week but try to stick no more than three times per week to avoid depleting your hair of its natural supply of oils. 

Don’t Forget About Conditioner

If you want your hair to be at its strongest and to gain volume quickly, providing it with essential nutrients with conditioner will go a long way. Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Lemon Sage Conditioner replenishes your hair with the hydration and nourishment it needs to stay strong while providing extra volume. Plus, you’ll love the way it smells in the shower. 

Take Your Vitamins

As it turns out, many of the same nutrients that keep your body healthy also keep your hair and scalp healthy and promote hair growth. Vitamins B and D are both known to promote healthier hair that grows faster. Biotin is another nutrient related to hair and skin health. And as a bonus, you’ll also likely get healthier nails in the process. 

Get Regular Trims While Growing out a Buzz Cut

While you may think you should just let all of your hair grow out to get your length back as soon as possible, doing so will result in a needlessly awkward and unkempt look. Most notably, your hairline can get a bit messy when you just let it do its thing without trimming it. Even in the earlier stages of growing out your hair, a quick trim will keep you looking fresh. Plus, adding a nice fade when you start to get more length back can make a world of difference. 

Be Patient

While getting regular trims and keeping your hair neatly styled while it grows back will make a big difference, there’s no avoiding somewhat of an awkward phase while you get to your ideal length. In general, mens’ hair grows at an average of a half-inch per month. So if your ideal hair length is three inches, you can expect to be growing out your hair for about six months. In the meantime, you can experiment with new haircuts while you wait for your hair to return to its former glory.
