Hairstyles 2012 - Top Tips to get Long Hair

Regular Trims
The biggest mistake you can make when trying to grow your hair is skipping regular haircuts. It is very important that you go for regular trims to get rid of any split ends. Removing split ends can help prevent split hair traveling further up the strand, weakening the hair and making it prone to breakage. 

Deep Condition
Deep condition your hair at least once a week to minimize split ends and to keep your hair in top condition. When getting your next haircut why not request a deep conditioning treatment. 

Don’t Over Shampoo
Washing your hair everyday strips your hair of its natural oils which will dry it out. The natural oils that your scalp produces are beneficial and necessary to maintain the health of your hair. So give the shampooing a rest and allow for the natural oils to return. To tie you over between washing invest in a good dry shampoo

Relax on the Heat
Avoid using heated appliances as much as possible. Over using your blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron will all contribute to dry damaged hair. Using intense heat can cause the hair follicle to break off which will not allow the hair to grow long.

Wear Protective Hairstyles 
Hairstyles such as buns, braids and up-styles are great protective hairstyles as the ends of your hair are kept moist as they are not exposed to the air. 

Be Gentle 
Be gentle when brushing, detangling and styling your hair. Never brush your hair when its wet this stretches your hair and makes it brittle, always use a wide tooth comb to brush it while it's wet. 

Cover your Hair at Night 
Sleep on a silk pillow case or wrap your hair in a silk scarf to prevent your hair becoming dry and broken. 

Balanced Diet 
Increase your intake of protein which is essential for healthy hair growth. Amino acids and B complex vitamins are other primary nutrients required by hair.

Massage your scalp daily. This will help to stimulate the hair follicles and to enhance the growth of hair. 

Start your journey to getting long hair by getting rid of your split ends and book your haircut with one of SalonAddict's member salons.
