You will need:
Yarn or string of any color
Take your brush and tie one end of a piece of yarn/string to the handle so that one end is loose and dangling. The string should be equal to the length that you want your hair to grow.
Take your peppermint oil and drop it onto the bristles of your brush (usually about 7-10 drops for me because i have very full hair)
If you choose to chant by putting your intentions in words go on and say this as you drop your oil:
Hair stay strong, though its been slow
With this oil my hair shall grow!
Now take pinches of cinnamon and sprinkle it over the bristles as well and say:
Sweet earth spice, grant time to pass
Help my hair grow long and fast!
Spend 5-10 minutes brushing your hair and feeling it grow!
At the end if each week, check your hair growth and tie a knot in your string equal to the new growth. (If your hair grew an inch, start at the tied off end of your string and count the space of one inch)
When you have tied the last knot (reached a comfortable length) take your string and burn it or tie it to a tree branch. Feel free to begin a new string as you see fit.
[Personally]: i use three inch string at a time and put oil and cinnamon on my brush once a week (or after every hair washing) and brush it twice a day for 5-10 minutes.
By the time Halt was four, he held his infant sister in his arms and hid in the shadows behind a curtain, trying to understand why his parent never talked to him, and why they were always yelling at each other.
By the time he was six, and he spent all in the library, safe behind towering piles of parchment and trying to read a folktale to Caitlyn, wishing faeries existed and wondering if he would eat something they gave him, just to get away from here, he thought he’d worked it out.
By the time he was nine, ignoring his insistent tutors and trying to cling onto the last bits of his imagination and leaning that keeping silent was how to stay alive and watching Ferris be congratulated on his Gallic by the same father who struck him when he was drunk (which was most nights these days) and the same mother who hadn’t spoken to him for weeks, he knew he had, and was beginning to wonder if it was such a bad idea to do the same.
By the time he was fourteen, growing up too fast and keeping his hair long and messy just to spite his parents and hanging out with commoners on the streets and getting into fights instead of doing his homework, he was pretty sure having to look after Caitlyn was the only thing keeping him sane.
By the time he was sixteen, sure he’d imagined the wicked glint in his brother’s eye, just like he’d imagined the breaking glass last night, he finally had a way to let out his anger, running through the woods and firing arrows and throwing knives at trees, just like he was beginning to think he finally, maybe, had a real father who said “well done” instead of shouting and asked him quietly how he was and understood if he didn’t want to talk.
And by the time he was nineteen, trying to grow his scraggly beard and laughing at something stupid Crowley said and realising he was beginning to sound Araluen, no matter what Arald told him, and talking to a king who considered his opinion and made jokes and respected him, and smiling back at that incredible courier as the wind lifted his hair, he was pretty sure he’s worked out a name for that strange new feeling - happiness.

WHO SAYS BLACK GIRLS CANT GROW LONG HAIR FAST:
“Black girls can’t grow long hair” is all I’m used to hearing growing up. So I’m showing myself, a black girl, with long hair. The top two pictures are when my hair was short and I decided to start growing out my hair. The other two are from last year. (My hair is longer now, but I’ve been wearing it curly and haven’t taken any pictures yet, sorry lol) I grew my hair extremely quickly with a regimen I developed for myself through trial and error.
I’ve also had a lot of questions from people wondering how I did it, so instead of email, just ask me on my TUMBLR instead. 👇🏾👇🏾
