In most cases, the hair is breaking at the same rate that it is growing, giving the appearance of stunted hair growth. Her hair may also shrink or curl when dry which causes it to look shorter.

How to help promote hair growth:
1) Trim every 3 months. This gets rid of damaged ends and reduces breakage.
2) Do not over-wash. Washing hair too often can dry it out and cause damage. Using a leave-in conditioner might just coat the hair. Light oils, like coconut or olive oil, actually absorb into the hair, giving it the ability to strengthen and reinforce the hair’s internal structure. Use oils as a conditioner mostly on the tips, leave in for 2-3 minutes and rinse, so her hair is not greasy.
3) Do not over style. If you can leave the hair natural without brushing, styling or chemical treatments, then do so. Hair bands, barrettes, or very tight braids and such may cause damage to the hair causing it to break.
4) Eat well. Vitamins and minerals absorbed by the body from foods can help strengthen hair. A multi-vitamin may help, but better if she could eat raw fruits and vegi's.
5) Drink water. Good hydration in your body comes out in your hair.

If you're still concerned, take a trip to the doctor to rule out allergies, dermatitis, hormonal disorders such as hyper thyroid, and other health issues.

I put Humetres in her hair every day. Her hair has grown to shoulder length and has been there for two years . I look at pictures when she was 6 and her hair seems to look longer in those pictures. I haven't had her hair trimmed in 3 years

Are you sure it's not growing or is she getting split ends and it's breaking off?
