You can find the shampoo, tail and mane in any shampoo section. Walmart has it.
It has a good citrus smell to it. I use the same thing. They also make the conditioner.

Protien = hair and nails. If ya want to grow her hair quicker, cook her lots of protien-rich foods.

Maybe a hair piece would work, if it has not grown out enough by Sept.

You may even find one already in a bun.

hiya alix,

first of all, tell your daughter that we think she's great for her sacrifice. she must be a very special girl. good things come back to people like that.

secondly, i did a little searching, and unfortunately, there's no good way to speed up your hair growth in a healthy way. your instincts are right about the pre-natal vitamins. it could mess up her hormonal development. the only thing you can do is minimize the things that slow hair growth, like keeping your hair and scalp clean and conditioned, eating well and exercising, and reducing stress. the upside is that your hair grows a little faster in the summer, so hopefully she'll have something to work with to attach a fake bun by the fall. look into theatrical supplies. actors and showpeople are always attaching things to their heads (and most of the time it is actually for the show)...

Practice random acts of kindness.

I have heard that brushing you hair a lot will help it grown faster. I think it helps with blood flow to the scalp.

For anyone who was wondering though, the pre natal vitamins do work. I took them in college to get my hair and nails to grow faster and I was shocked at how well it worked.

What about some extensions? You can have them put in and then wrap it up. Many actors put them in when they have to change hair styles so fast.

yeah, extensions are an option. but they are expensive and have to be re-done every few months.

I used to use Mane & Tail a horse shampoo, I got it from Wal-Mart. There is also a conditioner but be careful! A little goes a really long way!!

Buckytom's right - there is nothing that will speed up the growth of hair, other than proper nutrition. The prenatals are a definite no-no as well. Just keep fixing her well-balanced meals, give her appropriate daily vitamins, and remind her that what she did was an act of pure generosity.
Do, though, have her use professional products. There's a reason they cost more. They are a better, concentrated product, and aren't watered down like drug store brands. Really.

The salon you went to needs to know you are unhappy and they owe her a fix-up cut. They have no idea you are not pleased, so you need to make them aware of your dissatisfaction. Otherwise, they'll butcher everyone.

I'd buy your daughter a beautiful selection of satin ribbons, each cut to the length of a headband + room for a pretty bow. Have her make that her new trademark over the summer. No doubt, her friends will start copying the "new look". You can even have her embellish them, and have a girlie party where they each get to design their new bows.

Are you sure you just have boys? You sure know girls pretty well. We have already invested in some cool hairbands in every colour of the rainbow.

As far as the salon goes...well, I think I will need to wait a while before contacting them. There are too many sharp implements available to make my point.
