My hair is in between my ears and shoulders. It's closer to my shoulders. I desire to grow it down my back. I was wondering, how many years would it take?

Hair on average grows 1/2 per month, but depending on genetics, environmental factors, lifestyle and diet, it can grow more or less.
Certain vitamins can help:
-Biotin.I do take these everyday,they do help.Unfortunately my hair is very curly so you can see the hair growth when I straighten it.It is known to help sin,hair and nails,but some people have said it can cause them to break out or worsen cystic acne.If you do begin taking Biotin pills,don't be freaked out when or if you pee highlighter yellow,biotin isn't toxic,it isn't fat soluble which means it does flush out.
-Fish oil pills.I started taking these last year when I cut my hair(above my shoulders) and it...ugh...stupid short hair.Anyways,my hair began growing faster,of course,hair does have a limit as to how fast it can grow per month.
I recommend staying away from pills that are directed towards "hair growth"
Hair is made up of water and protein.Every strand is 1/8 water I believe,so make sure you drink enough water to stay hydrated through out the day.
The best fruits and vegetables for hair are carrots,cucumbers,apples,bananas(1 a day,no more,too much sugar),avocado(no more than 2-3 a week),strawberries,tomatoes.
Best foods with protein are almonds,walnuts,oysters,salmon,soybeans(edamame) in moderation,tilapia,oatmeal.
If anything,try to remain stress free,eat healthy(fruits,vegetables and protein).
On a side note,yes massaging your scalp is said to help stimulation of blood flow,which can increase growth.Many native indian tribes use Jojoba oil while massaging.
So In short,my recommendation:
-Fish oil pills.
-Drink enough water to stay hydrated.
-Take care of your hair externally.Shampoo,condition.
-Use sulfate free shampoos & conditioners
-Avoid heat & if you must use heat, use a heat protectant
-Trimming your ends will NOT make hair grow faster, but it will encourage healthy hair and a healthy appearance. It won't speed up the rate at which your hair grows though.
It's my answer, just copied and pasted :P1
