Dealing With Split Ends
We have two options: Leave your hair alone and let it continue to grow or "trim" your hair, which basically defeats the whole purpose of trying to grow out your hair. So, here are a few tips to help keep your split ends to a minimum.
1. Don't Split Your Ends
2. Avoid Heat Tools
- Shower at night and less often . I , for the most part will shower at night and sleep on my hair. Keep it in a towel for at least 15 minutes prior to bed. That way your hair will be completely dry before morning, eliminating the need for a blowdryer.
3. Hair Masque
4. Skip The Trim
We have a solid, healthy, hair dresser/customer relationship and guess what? -- Every time I would go see her she would comment on my hair length! So, my advice -- give JUST your split ends a hand trim with scissors at home. Stop getting professional trims or hand splitting them. I know I saw a difference.
Encouraging Hair Growth
- Scalp Massage. Whether you're bored at work, or conditioning your hair in the shower, a quick 30 second scalp massage will stimulate your hair growth!
- Turn upside down for 20 seconds. I read this in a magazine in high school and I was hooked. My friends thought I was crazy, except for one who did it with me and we both saw results! B e careful if it makes you uncomfortable or hurts your head. Stick with the scalp massage instead!
Happy hair growing!
