Guide to Growing Long Hair {Secrets Revealed}

Hello my gorgeous friends! I’m very excited to share with you today some secrets to growing long, healthy hair. {Which shouldn’t be secrets at all!} As a stylist I am constantly getting asked how to grow longer hair and how to grow it fast. Sit back, relax, and lets talk all about those luscious locks!

Eat Healthy & Drink Water

This may sound so basic but everything you put into your body affects your health and hair. Your hair needs certain nutrients to grow long and strong …mostly protein. {Sounds sexy, I agree.} We tend to think our protein needs to come from steak, chicken, and other meats- but it is also found in eggs and beans.  Plus, water cures everything!

Are you On Medications?

Certain medications, extreme diets and surgeries really affect your hair. If you have started a new medication and have noticed hair loss as a side effect be sure to mention this during a consultation with your doctor.

No tight buns or ponytails

Say yes to the scrunchie! Be kind to your locks and they will be kind to you. Do not pull tight or brush hard. Please, no sleeping with elastics in.

Minimize Stress

Breath. Relax.

See your stylist regularly

Trimming your hair really does matter. I explain to my clients to compare their hair to a piece of yarn. When you start to unravel the end {split ends} the yarn keeps splitting. If you cut off some of what you unraveled but not all of it, the split will continue to keep moving up the hair shaft. Be sure to see your stylist every 3 months, minimum.

Vitamins

Purchase a B Complex vitamin, these include 8 essential B vitamins that not only help your hair but also enhances your metabolism and energy.

Massage the scalp

Circulate the blood flow.

Deep Conditioners

Conditioning your hair is key! I have mentioned in a past blog all about repairing dry hair after summer is over. Be sure to let the conditioner set for awhile in the shower: shave your legs, exfoliate your face, pamper yourself. You will notice a huge difference in the health of your hair! {Side note: The past blog explains more, but, if your hair feels mushy when wet you need a protein treatment, not moisture!}

Take breaks away from the hot tools

Day to day I realize you need your blow dryer and flat iron to get ready for work or your hot date. But I suggest that on the weekends or over a holiday break you let your hair relax too. Enjoy a deep conditioning treatment in a hot shower, break out your scrunchies, grab some water and minimize that stress. You will have long, gorgeous hair in no time!

Healthy Hair Care Tips & Tricks :Repairing Your Dry Summer Curls This Fall

Hello Gorgeous! I want to thank you so much for coming back to my blog. If it’s your first time here, welcome! I love seeing and hearing from new viewers, if you would like to be notified when I post be sure to follow on my main page!

Today I plan to reveal some of my healthy hair care tips and tricks to help you get your dry summer locks back on track to be your best fall accessory. As you may know if you read my last blog post about frizz and smoothing treatments, moisture and protein are your saving grace! If you have yet to read that I will link it here.

Sadly summer has come and gone, now is the time to show our hair some love and repair. Between the chemicals in our pools, heat of the sun, and salt in the ocean our hair is begging for some help and attention. This is not including the normal  and amazing professional color appointments with your stylist or hot tools when daily styling.

If your hair feels rough, brittle, dry, or tangled you are most likely needing more moisture in your hair care routine. Look into a deep conditioning treatment with your stylist and ask about a recommended hair masque or conditioner to help soften and hydrate. If your hair feels limp, stringy, sticky, tangled, or fades color quickly then protein reconstruction is needed. Either way neither is a one-time fix and need to be continued to experience the benefits. Below I have listed some go-to products to get your healthy hair on the right track.
