Are you ready for a new look? Maybe it’s time to grow your hair out. These tips will make your journey to long hair easy.
It doesn’t have be difficult to grow your hair from very short to long. It’s possible to maintain a healthy, flattering hairstyle, despite the frustrating in-between periods. You don’t have to grow your hair out if you are in the middle of it. We have simple ways to make it easier.
Chad Taylor, a celebrity stylist and co-owner at Vancouver’s Moods Hair Salon offers seven tips for growing your hair. You can guarantee a stress-free hair-out with regular trims and choice accessories.
1. Don’t neglect shape
Taylor warns against letting your hair style go in the hope of increasing length. He says that the biggest mistake in growing a shorter haircut is to just let it grow. Your hair will grow out of control and become bloated. Because your head is round, hair grows in different shapes as it grows.
Taylor recommends frequent visits to the stylist to avoid an unflattering, uneven look. This will ensure that you lose weight regularly and keep your hair looking fresh.
2. Regular trims are recommended
Taylor says that regular trimming will help to maintain a healthy hair.
He says that it is important to trim your ends while growing your hair so they don’t split or fray. Your ends won’t become thin or break if you trim your hair frequently.
Taylor suggests that you visit your hairdresser every six to eight week to keep your cut fresh. Regular micro-trims are a good idea as your hair will grow an average of half an inches per month.
Taylor warns against using hair accessories that make it easier to grow your hair.
He says that headbands can be a great option because they can be stylish and keep hair away from the face. However, he cautions against over-bobby pinching and cutting your hair as it can make your hair look messy.
Professional hair extensions are a great way to create the illusion that your hair is longer. Taylor says that clip-in extensions work as long as the top layers are not too short. If you plan to use extensions, your stylist should texturize your ends so your layers blend in with the extensions.
4. Avoid layers
Taylor says that trading layers for a blunt cut makes the grow-out process much easier. He explains that bob or blont cuts are the easiest to grow. The shape of the hair should be altered as the layers are added. Pixie cuts and graduated bobs are the most difficult because they have such strong shapes.
Instead of changing your hairstyle abruptly and risking losing length, ask your stylist to ease you into a one- or blunt-length style while you get your regular trims. This will allow you to make great progress while still keeping your hairstyle in place.
5. Keep your hair moisturized
To make hair growth successful, you need moisture and protein. Taylor says that hair needs both moisture and protein. You need more protein if you color your hair or lighten it to make it grow stronger.
He recommends moisture-based shampoos or conditioners to keep hair soft and supple. A weekly treatment can keep your hair soft. To keep your hair shiny and to control the growth layers, I recommend using smoothing products such as oils or balms.
6. Bangs are a great option
You can create the illusion that your hair is longer by making a subtle adjustment to your cut. Taylor says that if you get frustrated with your hair, a subtle adjustment to the cut can make it appear longer. Sometimes, adding fringe or bangs to your hair can make it look longer.
Talk to your stylist about your hair texture and face shape to determine the best bangs for you. Do not attempt to adjust your hair on your own.
7. Keep the end goal in your mind
Taylor recommends setting an end goal to keep your sanity. He advises that it is crucial to know what shape your hair will take. For a one-length look, start by removing the top layers and keeping the perimeter short to ensure that the top is fully grown.
He stresses the importance to trim layers regularly, as wispy edges or roundness on the sides can be unflattering.
Although it can seem like a tedious and frustrating task, there are simple ways to make the process easy and stress-free. You can achieve the look you desire with regular trimmings, the right accessories, and patience.
