How to maintain hair length

Tired of trimming your hair

Dreaming of those long flowing tresses? Cut to reality and you are already having to cut those dry damaged ends! We know how that feels and we would never want you to unwillingly cut your hair again. 

There are ways to retain your natural hair length so that you can rock your long and beautiful hair. For most people this starts off by properly moisturizing.

  • Your hair ends require special care as they tend to be highly prone to split ends, breakage, and dryness. Make sure to always use a conditioner specially on your hair ends properly such as your choice of Dove conditioner on wash days. Additionally, it is very important that you seal in the moisture on your hair ends through proper and regular oiling. Coconut oil, castor oil and sheer butter are all enriched with moisturizing properties.
  • While excessive and complicated hairstyles may look good on an occasion, daily styling and using various products on your hair to achieve that look can lead to long-lasting damage to your hair. For daily hairstyles, try and incorporate protective hairstyles such as braids, pigtails, or low maintenance hairstyles such as top buns. These hairstyles require no products on your hair and keep your hair ends protected from damage and dryness.
  • Make satin and silk scarves and pillow cases a mandatory part of your sleep routine. Cotton pillow cases are known to rob moisture out of your hair and make them susceptible to frizz and breakage.
  • Avoid sharp pins, brushes, and headbands which can tear your hair out.
  • Brush your hair in a proper way. Always be gentle while detangling or brushing your hair by not yanking on your hair with the hairbrush. Instead of this always start detangling from the tips and work your way up to the roots. Divide your hair in sections while brushing and shampooing, both.

Follow these simple steps to retain hair length but also learn to be patient with your hair growth as everyone experience different hair growth rates. Also, while you may feel like your hair is not long enough, you should know that every hair is beautiful and you can flaunt them with confidence if you care properly.
