Long hair has only become more popular these days. Women are growing their hair long and embracing their healthy mane. Healthy hair will never go out of style. So how will you manage to keep your locks looking shiny and full of luster while growing it out?
While growing your hair out you may be tempted to not get it trimmed…or maybe twice a year. However, your hair may grow longer but does it look good? Many women make this mistake and miss their ultimate goal of long, healthy, shiny, bouncy hair. To avoid this mistake the following suggestions will help in reaching your Rapunzel-like locks.
1.) Get your hair trimmed. If you are good about setting a 6-8 week appointment, set your appointment to 8 weeks and ask your stylist for a “dusting”. This is best for those whose hair is naturally strong and does not have split-ends creeping up their hair. If you do fall into the latter category then you may need a 1/4-1/2 inch trim with an in-salon deep conditioning treatment.
2.) Schedule an in-salon deep conditioning treatment. If your hair is chemically treated/highlighted, ask your stylist if you need a strengthening and moisturizing treatment. A great in-salon treatment I like is: Powercell Repair by Loreal Professional. If your hair is color treated this is a great in-house treatment to maintain color and add moisture and shine: Powerdose Color. When growing your hair, adding a deep moisturizing treatment to your your service is optimum and will help you reach your long-hair goals much sooner. If you choose to push your appointment to a 10 week schedule you may want to schedule an in-salon deep conditioning treatment at the 5 week mark to maintain the moisture and vitality.
3.) Maintain your pretty mane with an at-home weekly deep conditioning masque. Choose a professional product from a beauty supply like Ulta or rumorssalonaz.com. An at-home deep conditioning mask once a week like, Lumino Contrast, is great for highlighted hair. Your stylist knows best!
Have a good hair day!
