Getting your hair to grow can be a frustrating process, but it doesn’t have to be. One of my old coworkers commented on how long my hair had gotten on Instagram and asked about my hair regiment. I replied that I really don’t do much and that’s true. I firmly believe that the less you’re in your hair the better. But to get more specific and to create a writing sample for this hair magazine I’m interviewing with, here are three simple tips to help you reach your ideal length.
Tip 1: Use little to no heat.
It doesn’t take much for hair to get heat damaged if you’re using too high of a heat setting or not using a heat protectant when styling. Put the flat iron and curlers down and try to use heat as little as possible.
Tip 2: Trim your ends monthly.
Your ends are the oldest part of your hair and when not taken care of they tend to split. Getting monthly trims will help get rid of dead and damaged hair, which will lead to healthy hair growth.
Tip 3: Don’t over manipulate your hair.
Putting a lot of stress on your hair from over styling will cause your hair breakage over time. Work low maintenance hair styles into your daily routine to put less stress on your hair.
Hope this helps! What do you do to maintain length? Let me know in the comments.
