Sooner or later if you have long hair, you will get tired of the ends looking thin and wispy and want to have it appear healthier and fuller on the ends, especially when its down and looks more unloved than a street dog!
Well relax we have the solution and its remarkably more simple than you think!!! Holding on to the length just because you want long hair is one thing, having it look good and maintaining the length is another. We know some hairstylists tend to get heavy handed and cut too much off, find someone who doesn’t and stick with them!
Now whilst this is just 2 inches off and we have not cut the layers in this photo, you can see the difference in the look of the overall hair!
Trim it every 6-8 weeks blunt and this is the difference!
To have healthy hair you need to do a few things and none of which you can swap or change. It’s not a bargaining thing it’s facts, you can not have a good diet and only sleep 3-4 hours a day and expect to be full of energy. Just like you can not skip gym 6 days a week and have a killer body, sadly it just doesn’t work like that. Healthy hair is a combination of what you do internally and how you treat your hair once it’s outside your body.
Hair once visible is not living matter so it’s incredibly susceptible to damage and must be treated with respect in order for it to be in best possible condition.
We all want what we want, some want every chemical treatment available and yet wonder why it’s not silky smooth and healthy, well sometimes you can’t have your cake and eat it too. Healthy hair starts with you and your diet, a balanced diet that ensures your body is getting all the nutrients and fuel to be able to function and grow the best hair.
Can you increase hair growth?Reality is no, sure some will say you can because we all want to hear it but truth is you can not. Hair grows marginally faster in summer vs winter that is a fact.
If I’m growing it why should I trim it every 6 weeks?
May be obvious but in case you slept through that class, hair is dead, if you don’t remove the ends every 6-8 weeks then you will get split ends which will travel up your hair shaft and break off. Hence your hair will appear like it’s not growing or at times getting shorter. If it grows on average 1.5 inches per month you can trim 1/2 inch every 6 weeks it’s still getting longer right?!
Can I rub fruit, oil or anything on it to make it grow faster?
Um no, if you have any idea how skin works, it’s not soil and your not growing tomatoes 🍅 compost on your scalp will only give you a bacteria infection and do absolutely nothing to your hair growth!
Can vitamin supplements help?
In some respect yes, if for whatever reason you can not cover the five food groups then you can add a Su plumber to assist however again this is a last resort and not going to grow your hair faster or thicker.
The best advice is everything in moderation, make sure you have a hairstylist that will say no to you in the interest of healthy hair, don’t do something for the sake of it and always use good products.
