So you decided to chop off all of your hair with great success and now you want to grow it all back but have no idea where to start. Growing your hair out can be hard a thing to do and you can become very irritated with the way you look, especially during the dreaded middle stages.
Here at TheHairStyler.com, there is help at hand, and we can show you what hairstyles you can wear when growing out your fabulous cut!
This month we have chosen to look at curly, medium to coarse texture hair types.
When growing out your hair, the first thing to remember is that looking after your hair is the most important step. Using a good quality shampoo and conditioner is key, followed by regular trims every 4-6 weeks. While it may seem odd to have regular trims when you’re trying to grow your hair out, the trims are essential for keeping your split ends under control. You certainly don’t want to find out that after growing your hair for 3 months without any trims that your spit ends are so bad you have to cut your hair short again just to get your hair looking healthy! So remember these simple tips and combine them with our hairstyle suggestions and you’ll be on your way to healthy looking long hair in no time!

A Little Length Makes a Big Difference
Now that your hair has grown a little length, you can start to see a different shape happening. You still need layers through the sides and back, which will continue to make this style easy to manage with a bit of product.
It's Growing, but Now What?
We all go through this stage when we're trying to grow out our locks. It's the stage where you just don't know what to do with the length you have.

It's getting exciting now as the length starts to hit the shoulders. Remember that even though you are trying to grow length, you must still have your regular trims every 6-8 weeks in order for your locks to grow out healthy. It'll make a huge impact to your end result.
Use Your New Length to Your Advantage
The length is past your shoulders now and the layers have grown out beautifully. By now you should be well into experimenting with different styles. Your layers have grown out to get you ready for your final length. Use this length to be creative with your curls.
