The stage between haircuts is probably the most annoying. It’s a beauty purgatory of sorts, all in the hope of a new look. Especially if your hair growth is slow, you can feel lost when it comes to dealing with this in-between stage. But now that we’re on the job, it won’t seem so difficult anymore because we’ve got 5 of the best hair hacks that will make growing out your hair a breeze.

Up your braid game
 

Up your braid game

When you’re in the process of growing your hair out, it’s possible to find unsightly layers and loose ends growing recklessly. Since chopping these off isn’t an option, an ideal way to keep these strands at bay is with some simple styling and hair care i.e. by braiding or twisting them. Even on short hair, numerous braided and twisted hairdos are possible to keep hair mess-free.

Trust a trim

As opposing as it may sound, to get long hair that’s healthy, you need to trim it. No, you didn’t hear that wrong. Everyone can grow their hair long but as the key focus here is healthy, trimming is crucial. This process discards the ends of the hair which have developed damage or split ends so that only luscious hair growth is encouraged. Depending on your growth, trimming off a few centimetres every 3 months is what you need to do.

If you’re eagerly awaiting new growth of your hair, turn to a product that will give you a helping hand. For that, we recommend the Sunsilk Long & Healthy Growth Shampoo and Conditioner. As it is enriched with Biotin, a widely known hair care helper, it nourishes the strand from root to tip so that breakage is prevented for new hair to grow healthily.

Alter your lifestyle
 

Alter your lifestyle

Since your hair works like a mirror on your lifestyle and reflects how you treat your body, you need to change your life accordingly. For one, find a relaxing hobby like adult colouring books to decrease your stress and circulate happy hormones all through your body. Next, a regular workout increases circulation of blood through the body and to your hair follicles too. Finally, add ample sources of protein to your diet with dairy, meat and eggs so that your hair grows out lusciously.

Turn down the heat

As much as you may like to curl your hair or straighten it flat, if you’re in the process of growing out your hair then it’s time to turn down the heat. This is because prolonged heat styling affects your hair negatively and can leave it undernourished and dry. Especially if you’re growing out your hair, it’s ideal to keep your tresses healthy as you’re in it for the long haul. Turn off the heat—we promise you’ll thank us later.
