How to Maintain Long Healthy Hair

Updated: Sep 24, 2019

Amazing tips for looking after those luscious long locks of yours...

We know how much care and TLC your hair needs! With these tips your hair is much more likely to be beautifully strong and healthy

1.Schedule regular trims

While cutting your hair often will not cause it to grow faster, trimming your hair regularly will help to maintain its length. Trim your hair every 6 to 8 weeks to rid your locks of damaged ends and to prevent split ends from re-splitting. When you maintain this hair trimming schedule, it will only be necessary to cut approximately ½ an inch off your ends each time.

2.Shampoo less

Shampooing your hair strips the scalp of its natural, nourishing oils. These oils ensure the health of your long locks. If you choose to use shampoo, apply the product 2 to 3 times per week and always condition your hair after. If you wish to avoid shampoo, replace the product with cleansing conditioner. Always apply shampoo directly to the scalp and conditioner to the ends of your hair.

3.Avoid tight hairstyles

While ponytails, braids, and top-knots are adorable and stylish, the tension these hairdos place on your hair can cause damage! The optimal style for long locks is to wear your hair down. If you prefer to pull it up and back, opt for a low chignon or ponytail, and don't wrap the hair too tightly.

4.Reduce your hair's exposure to friction

When your hair rubs against certain fabrics, the resulting friction causes split ends. Pull your hair up into a low bun or sweep it to the side when you wear faux fur, or wool.

5.Choose nourishing products formulated for your hair type

When selecting products, read the label and ingredients list carefully. Always buy products that are formulated for your specific hair type. Avoid products that contain sodium lauryl sulfate, sodium laureth sulfate, and isopropyl alcohol. Instead, seek out products that contain natural items, like avocado oil, honey, and or coconut milk. Don't haphazardly test new products on your hair if your unsure get product referrals from you hairdresser!!!

6.Purchase a high-quality hairbrush

When you have long locks, a great hairbrush is a worthwhile investment. Select a brush with natural bristles—a boar bristle round brush is ideal. Your brush should be firm enough to detangle your hair, yet gentle enough so that it does not pull too hard on your hair.
