Be in good health: If one is in good health without hormonal imbalances (such as thyroid problems), hair will grow as much as nature allows.

Also, over the counter topical minoxidel or rogaine (minoxidil) may speed the process but could be somewhat drying to hair that you already describe as dry. ...Read more

I have fair short facial hair, will it grow thicker and longer?

I have fair short facial hair, will it grow thicker and longer?

Beard characteristics do tend to run in families, however, so take a look at your father and your grandfathers -- if they can grow a long, thick beard, you will probably be able to as well. ...Read more

How short do I need to cut my hair to get the headlice off my head?

How short do I need to cut my hair to get the headlice off my head?

Unnecessary: Some might choose to cut hair if there is so much of it you don't think you can find and remove all the eggs/lice. However, the lice don't live on the hair they live off your blood & feed daily at the scalp. Treat the hair with a good lice med and rinse it with a strong vinegar.This can kill living bugs and loosen the eggs.Then comb the eggs out with a fine nit comb. Daily rinse and comb helps. ...Read more
