Growing out your hair can seem like it takes forever. Here are some tips and tricks from DealDash to help.
As someone who went to beauty school and has very long hair, I consider myself quite the expert in this area. Growing out your hair from a shorter haircut can be tough and take quite a long time, but it is do-able. Here are some ideas to help you get started on your path to long and luxurious hair, from DealDash.
Get Frequent Trims
I had always heard the hair growing tip “get frequent trims”, but it never made sense to me. Why cut your hair if you’re trying to make it grow? The reason that you should be getting frequent trims if you’re trying to grow out your hair is split ends. Hair that isn’t trimmed frequently gets split ends, and surprisingly enough, they can split all the way up to the scalp. This is why it’s important to take good care of your hair and catch those split ends before they get started.
Avoid Harsh Shampoos
Go look on the back of your shampoo and read the ingredients. If there are any ingredients with the word “sulfate”, then you should think about getting a different shampoo. Sulfates are chemicals make your hair weak and brittle. Weak and brittle hair will lead to breakage which will keep you from growing your hair out. Use shampoos labeled as being sulfate-free. It used to be difficult to find sulfate-shampoo, but now you can get them at any big box store or salon that sells shampoo.
How Are You Washing Your Hair?
Hopefully, the answer to “How are you washing your hair?” is “Every 2nd or 3rd day, with cool water.” I grew up washing my hair every single day, but apparently, it’s much healthier for your hair to wash it every-other or every third day instead of daily. Washing your hair too often can lead to weaker hair.
Hair is also especially prone to breaking when it’s wet, please be very careful if you try to brush your hair before it’s dry. First use a comb, then follow up with a brush that’s made for wet hair if you must brush it when it’s wet.
Use Less Heat
You’ve probably heard this before, but heat-styling can be very damaging to your hair. If you must use a blow dryer on your hair, then use it on the low or medium setting instead of high heat.
The same goes for flat irons and curling irons – use a lower heat setting. It’s also much better for your hair if you don’t use these heating tools on consecutive days. This will give your hair a chance to recover and also there will be less chance to cause heat damage to your hair.
