Long, red hair...

Ok, so I wasn't born with a red hair. My hair is sort of caramel colored, or almost pure gray in certain light... but also... when the henna grows out, there is a clear, red shade in my hair still... I find it interesting.
Nevertheless, with henna and other dyes in the world, no-one needs to be born with red hair to be born to be a red-head... ;-) I wouldn't want red hair, if I wasn't supposed to have red hair :-D

30 things you can do to make your hair grow faster

1) cut the split ends - about half a centimeter ever second month should do the trick

2) hot oil massage - warm up a small cup of oil and rub it in your hair. Massage the oil in your scalp in gentle, circular motions. Put a warm towel to your hair and let it stand for at least half an hour. Wash your hair and let it air-dry

“Indian women are known for beautiful hair,” says Purohit. “Hair oil massages are a big thing. Once a week, we apply coconut, olive or almond oil to hair, massage it in for five minutes, leave on for 10, then shampoo.”
