Tips for Growing Out Your Hair

After years of enjoying the ease of sporting a shorter haircut, you are ready for a change and want to grow your hair into a longer look. Unfortunately, depending upon the desired length, it can take months or even years for you to achieve the longer look of your dreams. Knowing how to grow your hair out properly can help ensure your hair remains strong, grows more quickly, and that you are able to enjoy your hair at every length. Here are a few simple tips to help you grow out your short hair.

Schedule Additional Trims

It may seem strange, but one of the best ways you can help achieve the healthy, gorgeous, and longer hair you've always dreamed of is to schedule additional trims. No matter what shampoos, conditioners, and styling products you use, your hair will suffer damage. Getting regular trimmings—such as every few weeks instead of every few months—can help keep the breakage at the ends to a minimum.

When you cut the split ends and breakage regularly, it will mean your hair is less damaged, which will actually make it healthier and prevent you from having to get more of your ends cut off once your hair is longer.

Put Your Curling Iron and Blow Dryer Down

Many people struggle with how to style their hair during the awkward phases when they are growing it out. This can lead to the use of a lot more heat styling tools, including curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryers. Unfortunately, while your hair might look good that day, all those heat styling products can cause serious damage that can mean cutting off more of your damaged ends.

Instead, put down the heat styling tools and try out some natural looks. If you are using a heat styling tool, apply a heat protectant to your hair.

Skip the Miracle Cures

There are several pills, potions, and other miracle products that will promise to grow out your hair faster. Unfortunately, these products are not effective because your hair will only grow at a certain rate. Instead, the best thing you can do to help your hair grow as fast as possible is to eat a healthy, balanced diet and protect the hair you do have on your head by using quality shampoos, conditioning your hair often, and brushing your hair gently to prevent damage and breakage.

Growing out your hair can seem like a long process. However, by scheduling more regular trims at your hair salon and skipping the heat styling tools, it is possible to protect your hair and prevent damage and breakage while it grows.
