I know the basics ; no curling irons and stuff, don't shampoo too often, etc etc.
I'm looking for other unusual tips, (like the scalp massager for example) so hit me with your best tips! :)

Eat lots of almonds, fish, dark green vegetables, and drink LOTS of water.
You can use a henna paste on your hair(none coloring) twice a week for stronger hair.
When in the shower, you can rinse your hair with beer which causes shine and softness.
Cleanse your hair with lemon juice or apple vinegar to remove the buildup of product from your scalp.
Every two-three weeks, take 2 inch sections of hair and twirl it around your finger so the split ends can stick out and cut them off. And to start off, cut off any dry, damaged hair because the split ends continue up the shaft and break(Actually making your hair shorter).
Always put a protectant spray on your hair after your shower so that even if you don't use heated tools, you're hair is strong.
If you swim in the ocean or a pool, mix in a bottle; 1/2 conditioner 1/2 water and spray it on your hair. It will reduce the amount of chlorine or salt water that becomes absorbed.
Mayo is great if you want to strengthen your hair.
Don't drink alcohol or soda because there are preservatives and chemicals in there that are basically poison to your body(it will show in the shinyness of your hair).
Wear a hat outside. The sun does the same thing to your hair as it does to your skin.
Try to reverse the conditioner and shampoo once a week(condition then shampoo). Conditioners can only be fully stripped from hair by using another conditioner to remove it. Even though it sounds weird, it actually helps keep your hair from being flat and prevents an access build up preventing your natural oils from becoming absorbed.
Brush your hair with a boars hairbush once a night (not too much cause the friction encourages split ends) to allow oils to reach the ends.
Sleep. It really helps everything about your body. It causes growth and stress relief.
I'm growing my hair out too and this is what I've been told! My hair is halfway down my back so far. Goodluck:)
