Getting those long, luscious locks!
We all want gorgeous, healthy hair, right?
We all know that growing your out hair can be a long and tedious process - it can feel like FOREVER to get it to the length you want.
Here are some tips to help you to grow your hair out and get those long, luscious locks you've been wanting!
Having a regular trim can seem like a contradiction in terms when you think about growing out your hair. And sometimes going for a trim can be daunting if you get a snap happy hair stylist that ends up taking off more hair than you were planning on (we've all been there). But for healthy hair that will grow and grow, you need to make sure that those split ends are trimmed regularly. They can’t be repaired, so it just makes it easier if they are eliminated as soon as you see them.
If you have particularly dry hair or hair that has been colored, then it can be harder to grow out as it is so dry it can simply snap off. But there are oils that can help with their wonderful healing powers. Oils on your hair help to seal cuticles and tame any frizz that you have. Coconut oil can work wonders on hair and is completely natural, but there are many products out there on the market that you can buy.
We're all aware that heat can do damage to hair, especially if the hair is already quite dry. Which is why it can be a good idea to take breaks from time to time from the straighteners, curling tongs and the rest. Try allowing your hair to dry naturally for a week as well. There are plenty of alternatives that don’t need heat for things like curling your hair, so you can get to try plenty of new things.
The old saying goes that you are what you eat, and in terms of your hair, this saying couldn’t be more true. Protein and a diet rich in omega-3s are the things that will help you to keep your hair strong, as well as shiny. Swisse have a great hair, skin and nails complex with collagen and other minerals proven to assist with healthy hair.
If you're getting impatient, it may be a good idea to look for a decent hair extension salon.
Extensions also help achieve a 'fuller' look. Just make sure you go for quality and have a professional put them in to prevent damage.
