When you get out of the shower, Brushing your hair while its wet can damage your hair. I wait until my hair is dry maybe a little moist but mostly dry, then I use a comb because it is a lot better the brushes. I'm growing my hair out too :) try sulfate fee formula shampoo and stay away from heat styling. :)

Although its very tough, try to stay away from heat styling products. When you do use them though, make sure to always use a heat protectant. Always comb your hair when its wet instead of brushing it, as brushing wet hair actually damages it. Don't wash your hair every day as that strips away the natural oils. Use a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week. Deep treatments help to hydrate your hair as well as make it stronger. Some people actually use coconut oil as a deep treatment. Coconut oil also helps with hair growth apparently. I haven't tried it myself because my hair grows pretty quick, but I'm actually looking into it :) Eating well is also important if you want to grow your hair quicker, so make sure your diet includes a lot of proteins.

Many things contribute to growing long hair! :) Just a few:
-Heredity. My hair grows super fast on its own, but others may grow hair slower, it is just part of you how fast it grows and how much.
-Diet. A healthy diet means a healthy you! And that is including your hair and skin!
-Heat styling. Hard to avoid but using it less definitely helps avoid damage to your hair. If you do use hot tools on your hair use a heat protectant:) I personally let my hair air dry 99% of the time.
-Hair care. Avoid brushing while wet, tugging hair styles such as a high tight pony tail or bun over long periods of time or often, sun exposure and teasing/back combing. Also frequent hair washing, lots of people wash their hair every day, but this strips the hair of its natural oils and can make it dry. I wash my hair once or twice a week. Your hair may be oily at first while doing this but after a bit it adjusts. You can also try dry shampoos in between.
-Products. Conditioning, and non drying shampoos work wonders! Look for things containing oils and conditioners. I also like to use leave in conditioners and oils after I'm out of the shower or when I'm getting ready for the day.
Hope that helps:)
