We all want to grow our hair out at some point in our lives. Whether you donned a pixie cut when it was popular or whether you've always had short hair and think it's time for change, it can be a long process to grow your hair to a specific length.
But with these easy styling tricks and products to ward off any damage, your hair will be long and beautiful in no time:
Use a hydrating mask weekly
Using a conditioner adds moisture to your hair but may not be enough to protect it from constant styling and heat damage.
Applying a hydrating hair treatment will help maintain as well as restore your hair's internal structure and prevent any breakage, allowing your hair to grow.
Be gentle when brushing
Roughly brushing your hair when it's wet or dry can lead to tiny tears in your hair.
We suggest using a paddle brush to gently comb through your hair, working from the end to minimise any breakage. Remember to be extra careful around the hair that frames your face as these can be extra fragile.
Seal split ends
To grow your hair out really long and create the illusion of length, then healthy ends are key. When strands split at the bottom, your hair will appear shorter and flatter.
Use a daily treatment that can help smooth hair and reinforce the prepare for any damaged split ends.
Nourish from the inside out
Proteins are the building blocks of hair, so along with a balanced diet , eat protein-rich foods such as chicken, eggs, nuts and seeds.
Shield from damage
Along with the daily abuse that your hair goes through (tearing through tangles, tight ponytails, getting caught in your jacket, etc), heat-styling can wreak havoc on your hair, causing the outer cuticle layer to disappear.
It's crucial to maintain your hair's natural protective barrier when you style to minimise damage.
