Many women will go to extreme lengths to grow long, beautiful hair. Some women will even fake it using wigs or extensions. However, keeping a few simple rules in mind can help you achieve the length you desire.
- STAY NATURAL
Avoid using products or chemical processes that contain harsh ingredients such as parabens or sulfates. These can dry hair and strip your locks of its vitality. USE HOT STYLING TOOLS SPARINGLY. Using tools like a hair dryer or curling iron can suck the moisture out of locks and cause split ends. Let your hair air dry naturally and embrace your natural hair texture. If you must use a hot styling tool, spray a light coating of thermal-activated styling products - the Peter Lamas Hold Me Thermal Styling Spray or Volumize Me Sea Silk Styling Mousse- to give your hair a layer of protection.
- SEE YOUR STYLIST REGULARLY
Let your stylist know you are planning to grow your hair out and schedule a trim every 2-3 months. Trimming your hair regularly will remove existing split ends to make sure it doesn't travel up your length.
- LET YOUR HAIR DOWN
Tight braids and ponytails can pull your hair right out of its roots! Let your hair flow or stick to low, loose ponytails and buns.
- NOURISH YOURSELF, INSIDE AND OUT
What you eat and drink has a major effect on your appearance. Make sure to include plenty of fruits, vegetables, healthy fats and lean protein your diet to get all of the vitamins and minerals necessary to stay healthy. Also, using nourishing hair care products like the Chinese Herbs Regenerating System will give you an extra boost to promote healthy hair growth.
- TREAT YOUR LOCKS RIGHT
Indulge in a rich conditioning treatment once a week. One natural ingredient that helps boost shine and hydration is virgin coconut oil. Saturate your hair and scalp with the virgin coconut oil and massage your scalp for 1-2 minutes. Then wrap hair in a towel and leave it in for 30 minutes. Rinse the oil out with warm water. Shampoo and condition as usual. This will leave you with super shiny, soft locks.
Following these easy tips will lead you on the path to longer, stronger hair.
