The Best Way To Long Beautiful Hair
Looking for new ways to make your hair longer and healthier? Whether you have dry, brittle strands or your hair is damaged from heat treatments, these ideas will help you get the long, healthy hair you want.
Use a top quality shampoo
Heat styling, sulfate shampoos, not enough conditioner and too much or too little protein in the hair can cause breakage. Excessive sun exposure, chlorine, and salt can also cause breakage. Try Kerastase’s sulfate free shampoo Discipline Bain Fluidealiste or Prive Shining Weightless Amplifier Shampoo
Trim you hair regularly
We know it is hard to admit, but cutting your hair regularly is necessary to encourage hair growth. Too many people make the mistake of skipping the salon while trying to grow out their hair, but this process will back fire. Hair that is dry or split will eventually become brittle and break, preventing strong hair growth. So do your hair a favor and make a trip to the salon at least every 8 weeks, making sure to tell your stylist your hair goals.
Protect your hair
Heat protectants help you maintain the nutrients, volume, and moisture in your hair by creating a barrier between the heat and your hair. Using a leave-in conditioner with heat protectant is a great way to add moisture to prevent your hair from getting dry and breaking – letting it grow long and healthy. Apply to damp hair before blow drying and styling. We recommend the leave-in heat protector line from Kerastase. Choose one of 3 Thermique products to target your hair needs (Nectar, Ciment, or Keratine).
Style your hair safely
Hair can break when its protective layer is damaged by heat from appliances and friction from brushes. If you are using a heat tool to style your hair, count to 20 and then remove the tool. Leaving it longer can damage your hair.
The protein bonds in your hair are weakest when it is wet, so be sure not to pull or tug too much and always start at the bottom and work your way up. Wet brushes work great as well.
Headed to the beach or pool? Try braiding your hair and wearing a hat (unravel the braid later for easy, loose waves).
Last but certainly not least – watch your diet
What you put in your body will affect the health of your hair. Adding supplements like vitamin E and biotin will increase the circulation in the scalp and the production of protein in the body, boosting your hair’s growth rate. Try including avocado and salmon into your diet to help with your hair growth.
