Tips For Growing Long and Healthy Hair

For as long as I remember I always had short hair. This wasn’t really my choice, but more because my mum was clueless on how to style hair. (She didn’t know how to put it in a hair tie). As I never had anyone to show me really how to style hair, I never did it either and just left it short.
A while ago I decided to grow it out, and now my hair is the longest it’s ever been. I do get it coloured every couple of weeks, but my hairdresser ensures me that my hair is healthy.
This is my Tips For Growing Long and Healthy Hair!
Another Shampoo and Conditioner that I really like, are these John Frieda ones.

Using Heat

The first big thing that you’ll need to change if you want to grow your hair is heat and the amount of it you use.  If you are going to use heat make sure to get a heat protection spray, as these make a  crazy amount of difference to your hair, as it will stop the ends from splitting and hair looking dry.

Stop Washing Everyday

If you’re looking to grow your hair you may have to change how often you wash your hair. If you wash your hair everyday; stop! This is something I tell everyone, as washing your hair everyday washes out all of the natural oils that are helping your hair stay strong and healthy, so the hair will just dry out and be prone to breakages and split ends.

Change The Temperature

I know that everyone loves a nice warm/hot shower, but if you’re looking to grow your hair, you’re going to need to wash it with the water as cold as you can handle, (that may sound a little bit dramatic, but cold water is better for the hair than hot water). Cold water helps to keep the hair smooth and healthy where as hot water tends to lead to breakages and frizz. I personally think that life is too short to not take hot showers, but if you really want that long hair, I’ve heard that this is a good way to get it!

Deep Conditioner

Investing in a deep conditioner may also help. I don’t use deep conditioner often, but they are amazing for restoring the hair. I’ll put this on and then leave it for a couple of minutes before rinsing off with cold water. This doesn’t need to be done every time you wash your hair, just once or twice a week.

Purple Shampoo

You can also invest in a purple shampoo, if you have blonde hair. The purple shampoo takes the yellow tones out of the hair and leaves it looking blonde. There are a lot of do’s and don’t for these, like it is only supposed to be used once a week. I’m new to this, but if it means my colour lasts longer, then I’m all for it.

Cut The Cord

If you leave your hair to dry naturally then this won’t apply, but there are days when there simply isn’t time to leave the hair to air dry. Like I mentioned earlier if you are going to use a hair dryer then you are best applying a heat protection beforehand.

Wait For The Brush

I also suggest that you don’t brush your hair as soon as you are out of the shower. Dragging a brush through the hair when it is wet can create more tangles, so it is not the best idea. If you really can’t resist then gently bring your fingers through it, or use a wide tooth comb.

Leave it Down

One of my friends thought that if you tied your hair up it made it grow quicker, but this is not the case. In fact putting your hair up can cause breakages if the bobble is too tight. It is also easy to damage the roots this way, as the hair can be pulled too tight.

Find Styles with no Heat

A good way to style your hair if you are a lover of curling your hair, is to plait it before you go to sleep. As not only will this stop you from using heat, but may also save you time in the morning!
Some of these things I have done myself and others I have heard from friends that have worked for them. As practically all of my friends have long hair, so I was able to get some more tips from them.
If you have any other tips feel free to share!
