Here are 7 of our favorite ‘redhead friendly’ tips for growing out your red hair:
1. Massage your scalp
Massaging your scalp can help to promote blood flow which will help with hair growth. Try using a scalp massager in the shower while you shampoo.
If you are looking for a redhead-approved shampoo to add to your routine, look no further:
It took many years to custom-make the Finally Glossy® formula and we’re so excited for redheads to enjoy it. We’re thrilled to release another clean redhead beauty product.

2. Apply oils that promote growth
Jojoba, argan, and castor are a few of the oils you can apply to your scalp to help promote hair growth. Not only will they help with growth, but they will also make your hair healthy, soft, and shiny. Create a mask with the oils and apply 1-2 per month.
3. Take hair growth supplements*
Hair growth supplements* don’t work for everyone, but they might work for you. Multi-vitamins and Biotin are both great options for promoting hair growth. Be sure to consult your doctor before starting any new supplements.
4. Hold off on the heat
Using heat won’t slow down hair growth, but it will dry your red hair out and cause damage and breakage. For healthier hair during the growth process, avoid using hair dryers or hot tools.
Looking for the perfect hair towel to dry your red hair? Look no further!
When drying your hair opt to use a microfiber towel! Introducing the How to be a Redhead Soft Microfiber Hair Towel for Redheads. Because wet hair is at its most vulnerable, this custom microfiber towel gently and carefully absorbs moisture from your red hair and dries it quickly, all while protecting it from stretching and breakage. This design is uniquely shaped to wrap all of your hair securely (no matter the length), with an elastic strap to comfortably keep things in place. Your hair journey starts here, redheads.
5. Get regular trims
While having your hair trimmed won’t help it grow, it will keep it looking healthy and will help you to avoid split ends from spreading upwards.
6. Be mindful of your diet
Make sure your diet is high in fiber, nutrients, and biotin*. Foods with these properties will help promote growth and healthier, shinier hair. Additionally, be sure you are meeting your water intake needs daily.
7. Be patient
At the end of the day, hair growth will take time, so be patient. Try and enjoy your red hair at the length it is now. If you want long hair fast, try getting red hair extensions.
*Be sure to consult your doctor before starting any new supplements.
Rock it like a Redhead!
