Five Ways to Help Your Hair Grow Faster

January 30, 2015


After I recently had to trim my hair (it was a big trim, sigh) I decided to poll Facebook and ask, “How can I make my hair grow faster??”. EVERYONE commented so I did a little research and started testing some things out. This is what I found most effective!


The question that people have been asking for centuries. Honestly- the answer is simple- TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF but if you want to dig a little deeper then that there ARE some things you can do that make a difference.

1) Fish Oil
Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids which are AWESOME for your whole body but REALLY good for your hair, skin and nails. These essential oils can make your hair shinier and stronger. Stronger= less split ends. This also helps nourish the hair follicles which helps them grow faster! Woot wooOT!

2) Biotin
Biotin is a naturally occurring B-vitamin that doesn’t stimulate hair growth but renews the roots & follicles thus creating healthier, thicker hair. Its all about loving the follicle!!!

3) Avocado
This produces softer, more elastic hair. Mixing olive oil and avocado oil can create a nice hair mask for your hair (you can find a TON of recipes online).

4) Vitamin C
Its all about keeping your immune system healthy and what better way to do this then Vitamin C!? This amazingly effective nutrient can also help strengthen and grow hair!

5) Water
THIS is beneficial for EVERY INCH of your body but when your hair is hydrated its HAPPY. It’s less likely to break. Isn’t it 8 cups of water a day?? Not only will it grow faster but it will get stronger.


Happy Growing!!!

I see the beauty in imperfect things. As a Christ-follower, faith is central to my life, work, and connections. I am fueled by joy, known for my bubbly and sunny disposition, and always with a warm hug. Imperfect beauty inspires my love for all things vintage, abstract art, and real love stories. I love moments full of grit and emotion; life off the beaten path; stunning views along the shore; and the juxtaposition of New York grunge and laid back Cali-vibe. 

As a mother of two, I am very familiar with how quickly life’s most important moments fly by too quickly. I will calmly and seamlessly guide you through frames that will endure. I strive to capture your memories with one-of-a-kind images full of meaning. I cannot wait to connect with you! 

I bring all of these elements to my time with my couples. With over a decade of experience in the industry, I know how to gently guide you through poses that are natural and beautiful. The transition into this sentence doesn’t make sense. Throughout your day, you will feel the love from those there to celebrate
 you two. 
When I’m not photographing weddings, I enjoy long walks in the neighborhood with my husband, my kiddos Tuxie and Sunny, and my labradoodle Hokie.. Also, I am a huge dog-lover! I’m pretty sure heaven is full of dogs. I can’t wait to connect with you, and yes, your pup is always welcome here!
