Wearing your new haircut with a positive attitude may change your perception.

Moreover, you can  take advantage of the situation and even have fun with your new look. 

Go for showing it off! If someone compliments your new haircut, don’t say: “phew, it’s too short.”

Instead, change those words to:  “Thank you! I wanted to try something different, and I love it.”

Help your hair to grow faster with these 5 tips

While I don’t have the magic wand to make your hair grow overnight, I’ll give you some  tips to stimulate hair growth: 

In my case, I always choose shower time.  You’ll stimulate growth and also relax. 


  • Don’t use heat tools to avoid damaging your hair or slowing its growth.
  • Avoid hair extensions.

No matter how much you regret your short hair and wish you had long hair again,  extensions pull on the hair  and can cause it to fall out.


  • Take care of your hair routine, don’t wash it daily, and use a sulfate-free shampoo, to prevent it from drying out.
  • Use wide combs to comb your hair, and do it carefully. You can cut your hair if you use other thinner combs, and  comb your hair carelessly. 



 Even if you regret the short hair,  I am sure you’ll get used to it very quickly.

 But you must give yourself time and have patience.  Take advantage of it, look on the bright side, and be positive.

Besides, hair grows. Give your new style a chance!
