Tips To Get Your Hair Longer

GIVE YOUR HAIR A REST.  Laying off the dye/bleach/straighter/hairdryer is the most obvious suggestion in the book. But have you ever actually tried only using heat on your hair for super special occasions, and dying your hair 50% less than you think you need to? If you want to grow your hair (not to mention have the kind of hair that takes less than five minutes in the morning), you need to give it a rest and appreciate it in it’s natural state.

TIE IT UP.  Braid it, low-pony or relaxed bun. The best way to actually give your hair a rest and encourage growth is to tie it up. That way it’s less exposed to the elements, products and just general wear and tear.

USE A PADDLE BRUSH. The wider the brush, the less tension you’re likely to inflict on specific part of your scalp or hair. The spread out bristles are best for avoiding unnecessary hair damage, especially when COMBING OUT your hair.

TAKE SUPPLEMENTS.  There are so many hair supplements out there, so do some research to figure out what works for your hair type. For me – now this is going to sound a little crazy crazy – a stylist years ago suggested taking pregnancy vitamins to stimulate hair growth, and for me; it’s the only thing that works. No, you won’t get pregnant, yes, your hair will grow long and luscious.

MOISTURIZER ISN’T JUST FOR YOUR FACE.  You’d never forget to moisturizer your face right? Well the same goes for your locks. Whether a moisturizing cream or a hair oil is more your jam, remember to apply frequently for deliciously hydrated locks.

Swimming plus hair can equal a mess of frizz. Are you searching for a specific hairstyle that can actually work while you swim in a pool or the ocean? Most people don’t care what their hair looks like while swimming, but others want to match their hair with the bathing suit style or keep bangs away from the face. What can you do?

Before dunking your head into a pool of chlorine or salt water make sure the head and scalp is fully protected. You can place a light conditioner application onto the entire head. Make sure to comb each application throughly from beginning to bottom of hair. The conditioner will help your hair from absorbing the chlorine, while the conditioner will help seal the cuticle and be your own hair barrier. This can be applied to wet or dry hair. I highly recommend Kalea Rose Passion Conditioner.

There are so many different hairstyles to choose from. Think of a style that would be easy for you to do, and how your hair reacts to it. One of the best styles for swimming is braids, which can be done on any length hair. When you braid the hair tight, this method can help the water from seeping into the cuticle and scalp. After you get out of the water, remove the braids from the head, shake, and run your fingers through it. You should now have a sexy beach wave style. You can do one big braid, braid on each side of head, a head full of braids, two ponytails with braids, french braid, boho braids, or side braid.

Trying to keep bangs away from the face you can gel them back and pin them to the side, or wear a cute headband to match the bathing suit. If you decide with 2 braids or ponytails, why not get matching ribbon to go with your swimwear? Simply create a bow, weave it through the braids, or make a headband out of it. Place the ribbon on like a headband, then tie it around the bottom of the nape area. Create a cute bow.
