Wanting to grow your hair out but need a good reason? Great, you’re in the right place. Instead of listing reasons to grow out your hair from our perspective, we decided to ask our community members why they decided to grow their hair out and some of the answers were pretty interesting.
Before we get started, if you’re considering growing your hair out but have no clue where to start, we want to encourage you to join our Facebook group to keep yourself inspired during your journey. To learn more about the Facebook group, click here:
Now let’s have a look at what the Facebook Group members had to say.

Started to grow my hair out to save money at first but now I’m growing it out until my first born, then I’m going to cut it all off and donate it. Maybe 🥺. Been growing it out for about 2 years or a little more.

Having long hair is so cool. I found with short hair you have to style and comb it a certain way. With long hair even untidy you look cool. Having long hair makes me feel like a badass. I can wear it neat during work with my suite. After hours I groom it for fun time.

I was in the army from a young age and never got the chance to grow my hair, I’m 38 now and thought let’s give it a go, I have been growing it cor 11 months now and until now I never knew I even had curly hair as I have always had it short.
Adam Sharkey –
I’ve had short hair for 30 years of my life. I was afraid to let it grow as I’ve always had a need to control it. My hair is super curly and super thick. I’m using it as a way to let go of this control and be confident in who I am and also to disperse the image I’ve had of myself and what I should look like. It’s not even long yet, but I freaking out with how curly it gets. 😂😂

It’s been crazy to see how much a haircut can change my physical appearance. However, I decided to grow my hair out to donate it. Now I can give my hair to someone who lost the ability to grow their own and give them a more comfortable lifestyle!

I started to grow mine to support my nephew growing his as he was getting bullied, his end goal was to grow to cut to donate, hes fulfilled his goal, now that is my goal also, won’t be long until mine is ready for the big cut!

For the first 30 years of my life, I’ve always kept my hair short. Then all of a sudden, I wanted to do something different. I wasn’t sure if I would be able to have the patience to grow out my hair.
Then there’s that society perception that guys should have short hair especially to look professional. It’s still annoying to know some people act like it’s only a girl thing.
To me, it’s just something society has conditioned people to think. I’ve always wonder, who makes up these rules for society?
How does having long hair keep me from being just as professional or interesting as anyone else? I grew my hair out for about four years, the first time. Then, I cut it short for several years again.
For the last five years, I’ve grown it back out. I figure at my age, most guys are balding. My thought, I might as well take advantage of keeping it long since I can. Sure, it can be a pain sometimes, but I love it.
I have naturally curly hair, but it’s easy to comb/brush straight. I enjoy wearing it down the most. To me, having long hair seems natural. If anyone gives me a hard time over it, I just remind them that we invented scissors to cut hair. Before that, no one rarely cut their hair. Hair growth is natural.

Curious to see what it will do/How it will look and what I will be inclined to do with it. Please do a video about curly girl method.

I first grew out my hair from 2014-2015 for cosplay purposes. At least that was my excuse but I’ve always admired long hair even when I was young.
Brad Pitt over the years was a great inspiration to me. He had plenty of amazing styles, short and long but the longer styles he had worn down really looked amazing to me.
I had also been going to the gym for a while and watching my diet a little bit when I first grew my hair out so I thought long hair combined with a shredded physique would look truly spectacular!

To rebel to my parents as they never let me grow my hair.
