Tips To Keeping Shoulder-Length Hair Healthy
Just because you want a simpler look, doesn’t mean that you have to drop the ball on caring for it. In order to keep your hair that length, you have to keep it healthy otherwise you will find that you have to start cutting the damaged hair off.
- Your Hair Doesn’t Grow Overnight
If you damage your hair, it’s not going to grow back overnight. Gaining back new hair takes time and that’s why you want to take care of it. You want to avoid getting a lot of split ends because that’s what’s going to have to be cut off and then you will end up with short hair.
- Scissors Are Your Friend
You might be thinking to yourself, “well how am I going to keep my hair long if I keep cutting it?” You might be surprised to know that getting a regular trim of your hair is the best way to keep your hair healthy and growing. Your hair will end up growing faster if you give it regular trims. If you wait a really long time to get a trim, you will find that your hair is just breaking off and causing even more damage. Unfortunately, you will end up with shorter hair that you wanted to have just because you didn’t get the trim.
- Use Conditioner Every Single Time
If you are washing your hair then you also need to be conditioning it every single time. Wet hair needs to be conditioned especially if you are brushing it out after. Your hair goes through a lot on a day to day basis, especially if you are using hair color, hot styling tools and so on. Hair starts to get thinner at the bottom because of this and this is where conditioner can help. Conditioner isn’t just making your hair softer and more manageable, it also replaces the proteins and lipids inside the hair shaft. Because the conditioner helps to seal the cuticle of your hair, it prevents further damage from happening to your hair. By using conditioner your hair will grow longer and be healthier.
- Don’t Shampoo Every Single Time
As we said before if your hair is wet, it needs to be conditioned but that’s not the same when it comes to shampooing your hair. There are so many women out there that will skip the conditioner but will always religiously shampoo your hair. But it’s not the shampoo that you need to use all the time. The reason why we use shampoo is to take out product buildup and dirt from our hair but it’s not just stripping away the bad stuff from out hair, it’s also taking essential natural oils from our hair. You don’t need to shampoo your hair every single time and when you do, just lather up your scalp and nothing else. When you rinse the hair, the suds will go into the lower part and that will be how that area gets clean.
- Do A Cold-Water Rinse
At the end of each of your showers, you should do a cold-water rinse. Believe it or not, but it helps your hair grow and will have it looking healthier for longer. By using cold water in your hair, it will prevent heat damage to your hair, snags and even moisture loss. You don’t have to stand under the cold water for your entire shower, all you really need is just a few seconds. This is a step that can make a huge difference for your hair.
- Use An Oil Mask Treatment
There are so many oil mask treatments that can work wonders on your hair and you should be doing one weekly. Hair that is shoulder-length is likely to be years old which means that it needs a lot more TLC than the fresh hair growing at your scalp. It also needs something a little more nurturing than conditioner. You can do these oil mask treatments before you shampoo your hair. If you like natural products, there are plenty of homemade oil mask treatments that you can find online that are made with coconut oil.
- Start Taking Supplements
You might have just thought supplements were for people who liked to spend a lot of time in the gym, but that’s not the case. There are hair-boosting supplements that can help your hair to stay healthy. In order for your body to create new hair, it needs vital nutrients. These nutrients come in the form of essential minerals and protein. Even if you are eating a balanced diet, you still might be missing some vital nutrients. By taking supplements that are specifically designed for your hair. By taking these, your hair will grow faster and will be able to withstand the damage you do to it daily.
- Brush Your Hair Like It’s Precious
Now, what do we mean by that? Pretend that your hair is special like it’s been spun from gold. Would you really yank on golden strands or would you be more gentle with it? We brush our hair every single day and sometimes multiple times a day. This constant brushing can cause a lot of damage to your hair and you want to try to protect it as best you can. When your hair is wet, you want to detangle it as gentle as possible. Start from the bottom and work your way up. The worst thing you can do is start at the top and try to just brush through all the tangles. You could end up with a much larger knot and then you are just damaging your hair. Not only are you causing damage but you could also end up losing some of your hair. Boar bristle brushes are also the best kind of bristles to use for your hair because they distributed your scalp’s natural oils throughout your hair. The brush itself is also gentler on the hair.
- Get Rid Of The Cotton Pillowcase
You might think that is crazy advice but the truth is a cotton pillowcase isn’t the best thing for your hair. It’s much better to use a silk or satin pillowcase because the soft surface won’t give you the same type of friction that you get from a cotton pillowcase. If you switch pillowcase, you will even find that you will end up with fewer tangles in your hair.
- Don’t Wrap Your Hair In A Towel
For years we have seen our mothers and family members wrap their hair in a big towel and let it dry that way. It’s even been something that we have seen in the movies but it’s actually one of the worst things that you can do to your hair. Believe it or not, but it causes so much breakage in your hair. There are woven fibers in a towel and your hair gets caught in them, especially since women always wrap it so tightly around their head. The hairs around the face are the easiest to break and that’s where you are wrapping the towel tightly against. If you are determined to wrap it in a towel then try a soft microfiber or super thin hair towel.
- Switch Up Your Ponytail
This is a really easy thing that you can do to protect your hair from damage. If you are someone that likes to wear ponytails a lot, then just switch up the ponytail placement. If you are always securing your ponytail in the same place all the time, then that area is going to become weakened over time. That’s not what you want. You want it to grow strong, so make a slight switch every now and then.
- Don’t Put Bleached Hair In A Ponytail
If you already have fragile hair that has been bleached, then it’s best not to put it up in a ponytail at all. If you are tying your hair up you could end up getting a “chemical cut” and that’s the last thing you want. A “chemical cut” happens when your hair will literally break at the point of tension and if it’s from a ponytail, then you can bet that you are getting a very short haircut. If you want your hair off your neck, then clip in loosely with a large pin or a claw clip instead of a tight ponytail tie.
- Take A Break From Hot Styling Tools
This can be a hard thing to do for a lot of people especially if you are someone who straightens or curls their hair every single day. But giving your hair a break from these hot tools will help your hair to grow and stay healthy. You don’t want to damage your hair because that’s when you have to end up cutting it so taking a break should be a must.
