LONG HAIR CARE:
There’s no shortcut to long hair. Caring for long hair takes work, and it starts with a good cut. Hair grows about six inches a year so you’ll need to practice patience and keep your hair healthy while it grows.
To keep your hair healthy and maintain that lustre and shine we all want so badly, always use a good shampoo and conditioner every time you wash. Try Bumble and Bumble Gentle Shampoo and Super Rich conditioner, or Creme De Coco shampoo and conditioner.
For some extra help use a masque or reconstructive treatment once a week, for instance, Bumble and Bumble Damage Therapy Masque or the Deeep Treatment. Leave these treatments on for at least ten minutes to achieve maximum results. For more intense results blow dry your hair on a warm heat setting while the conditioning masks are on your hair.
Taking care of your body and over all health in general will always help the condition of your hair as well. This article on livestrong.com gives great tips to keep you and your hair healthy. And beware, even if you think you are getting enough vitamins and minerals you may be missing out on some important ones! Supplements can really help make a difference and greatly improve the health of your hair.
TRYING A NEW LONG HAIR STYLE:
When choosing a new hairstyle for long hair, start by considering your facial features. If you have soft facial features, adding a lot of detail and volume around your face can overwhelm your look, so opt for styles that pull your hair away from your face.
If you have bold, strong features however, you may prefer some softness and wispy locks floating free around your face to soften your appearance.
