Growing out your hair can be a tedious and long process, especially while growing between styles. For those who want long hair faster, getting through that awkward "middle stage" can be quite bothersome. There are several ways to help hide the odd stages while helping your hair grow faster at the same time.

Things you need
- Hair extensions
- Deep conditioner
Eat a diet rich in protein, whole grains and fresh produce. A strong and healthy diet will affect your hair's growth cycle. A poor diet usually results in slower hair growth.
Take your vitamins! B-vitamins and beta carotene are crucial in the production of healthy hair and nails.
Hydrate! A daily dose of 8 glasses of water will help your hair look and feel healthier, which makes that awkward stage slightly more tolerable.
Find extensions made of natural hair (found in most beauty supply stores) that can be attached with Velcro or clips. Extensions that use glue are often more damaging.
Section hair starting from the bottom and attach each extension according to the package directions.
Treat your extensions as you would your natural hair; don't over-dry them or damage them with chemical colouring products. Wash them as you would your normal hair and allow them to air dry while you aren't wearing them.
Massage your scalp once a week. The consistent motions wake up follicles and provide stimulation for growth.
Use a deep conditioner once a week. This will keep your hair damage free and moisturised. If your hair tends to get greasy quickly, cut back this treatment to once bi-weekly.
Get your hair trimmed regularly. Keeping your ends clean and cut will eliminate split ends which tend to make your hair look more ragged. Healthy hair is always easier to manage through the awkward growth periods and looks nicer than frizzy, dry ends.
Be patient! Growing out hair is different for everyone. Work until you find a treatment that works best for you and stick to it, allowing a break every now and then so your body doesn't become accustomed to it.
