5 time saving tips to growing your hair

Welcome to The Avenue Boutique extended family! We are here to offer you valuable knowledge and advice on your hair.

Here are the Top 5 easy time saving tips from our Salon director Caroline on how to grow your hair.


Who has time to sit in the bath with a hair mask on? I know I don’t!  

That why I use an overnight mask so I can save time on my hair care routine & heal split ends whilst I sleep.  

There are many options out there but make sure you get one that you can apply to dry hair (it’s not nice going to bed with wet hair) and ensure it won’t make your hair heavy or greasy when you wake up.  

My go to product is: MIRACLE HAIR MASK BY ELEVEN  

  • Apply small amount to dry hair before bed.
  • Comb through
  • Wake up with softer smoother hair and rinse & style as normal.


I know, I don’t like taking supplements either but sadly the modern diet doesn’t always give us the correct number of vitamins we need to promote healthy hair growth.

We all need sufficient amounts of Biotin, B12, Zinc, L-Lysine, MSM, Niacin, B5 & B6, & Vitamin C in order for our hair to thicken and grow.

You might be already taking some of them, but you need ALL of them for it to work. Thankfully the clever people at GLOWWA HAIR FOOD have popped them all into one easy pill to swallow. Both my teenage girls take it regularly (sneaky way for me to ensure they have the correct vitamins in their system), And it genuinely works.


These clever vitamins provide daily nutritional support for longer, healthier hair growth, improved condition and shine and reduced shedding. It also has the benefits of giving you Glowing Skin, Stronger Nails, balancing hormones and general improved wellbeing! 

Simply take 2 a day and you will have everything you need. 


A hairbrush is like a toothbrush! It needs replacing after a while! I bet you have one in your draw that you have had for years, right?

It is so important that you have a brush that is gentle on your hair and doesn’t pull when you’re brushing it through. An old brush can be the root cause of snapping hair and split ends.

My game changing brush is: HEADJOG STRAW BRUSH

This is my FAVOURITE brush EVER! 

We use them in the salon and at home and my girls LOVE them! It works on short hair & long hair and all hair types. Easily Pulls out knots effortlessly, it is soft on the scalp and great for easy blow-drying and styling. 



We don’t often get taught how to brush our hair but there is actually a proper way to do it!

  • Hold your hair as if it were in a ponytail and gently brush through the ends first, gradually working your way up as you loosen the knots.
  • Never brush knots out directly from the roots first as this will just cause more knots further down your hair. 


If you dry your hair with a hairdryer or use heat tools on your hair this Tip is IMPERATIVE if you want to grow your hair!

Every time we dry and style our hair without protection, we are basically burning it! Over time this will leave it looking dull, dry and snappy (even if you only do it once a week) 

By putting on a small amount of heat protection each time you dry your hair you will be giving your hair moisture and protection, just like our skin needs this our hair needs it too.

There are loads of products out there but heres what you need to know.

  • It needs to be weightless, so it does not make your hair greasy.
  • It needs to protect to at least 220 degrees (some don’t)
  • It needs to be free of heavy silicones as this builds up a nasty plastic layer on your hair stopping colours from working and making the ends of your hair look dull.

Here is my favourite heat product I use on myself and in the salon every day. 


  • This unique all-in-one MIRACLE SPRAY HAIR TREATMENT works to:
  • Add shine, smoothness and softness
  • Control frizz and flyaways
  • Moisturise

With Hydrolysed Wheat Protein, Hydrolysed Soy Protein and Hydrolysed Corn Protein to strengthen, repair and condition the hair, Miracle Spray Hair Treatment is a must-have for all hair types.

Result is a hair care routine that takes half the time and a smoother style that lasts longer and looks great for work all day.


This one an absolute must for rapid hair growth. We would not expect a plant to grow without watering it would we? 

The same applies to hair. We know that 2 litres a day is best for us but sometimes it feels like a chore to achieve that doesn’t it?  

Here are my top tips to consuming water easily.

  • Always keep a sports top bottle with you. This way its easier to take a regular swig without having to get up and pour yourself a glass. 

I love the Evian sports top water bottles they fit in my hand perfectly and I know if I have at least 2 of them a day I am on the right track! I just refill it from the tap when I am done and change the bottle weekly.

  • Choose watery fruit & veg as a snack such as melon or cucumber the high-water content in these foods will help keep you hydrated and add to your daily water intake.
  • If you don’t like boring old water, look for a flavoured protein powder to add to your water. I get the orange & mango flavour from www.myprotein.com. It tastes delicious and gives you that much needed protein to help you grow your hair. 
  • The pee challenge! The easiest way to know if you have consumed enough water is to check the colour of your pee after lunch …If it’s clear you’re on the right track to hitting your daily water intake! Keep it going until after tea and give yourself a pat on the back.

It has been a real pleasure sharing all this information with you, Thank you for taking the time to read it. I hope you took some value from it and can work towards getting longer healthy hair. 

Much Love Caroline & Team AB
