4 tips to getting dreamy long hair 430x550

  • This might be obvious but go easy on the heat-styling tools (blow-dryers, hot rollers, irons, tongs)—this can result in some serious permanent damage.
  • Trim up! If you want to see some real-time change then get regular with your hair-cut appointments. The more frequently you trim your locks the quicker they’ll grow back. What happens when you wait too long is that the ends of your hair break off and your hair actually gets shorter. 
  • If your hair is chemically treated you need protein to help strengthen it. Use a shampoo or conditioner with protein at least once a week. For natural virgin hair too much protein can cause your hair to break (since protein strengthens hair)—here, we would recommend you use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair hydrated and glossy.
  • Make sure you are eating right and your daily doses of vitamins and minerals are up to mark. Try to stay away from the smokes as that causes hair to feel brittle, and there you have it—glossy, Rapunzel hair is yours for the claim.
