Growing and Taking Care of Long Hair: The Ultimate Guide

Hair long is beautiful; when taken care of properly, of course. Coming across someone with smelly, unwashed or unsightly long hair can literally ruin your day. So, here are our top tips to keep your long hair healthy and clean.

1. Use high quality hair products

Never wash your hair with cheap, lower quality products. It’s important to take good care of your hair so it can stay strong and healthy, even when you’re away from the salon. Cheap comes with a compromise. Always remember that.

2. Trim your split ends regularly

Keeping your hair short may sound counter-intuitive, but by going shorter and cutting out whole inches of split ends, you’ll prevent those pesky frizzies. If you keep up this style for a few months and focus on getting regular trims, your hair will become healthier and longer.

3. Use a wide-toothed comb

When detangling your hair, use a wide-tooth comb. If your hair is thick and curly, it’s especially important to use one. A wide-tooth comb can prevent frizz and breakage, which is nice for any man who wants to keep his hair looking great!

4. Schedule regular visits with your barber

Visiting your barber or stylist regularly will help you maintain your desired hair length and style, which can aid in the formation of new locks. Let your barber know you want to grow long hair and how you want it to look. This helps to form a baseline which they’ll use to cut your hair for the months to come.

5. Avoid Shampoos as much as you can

Shocker! I know right? But you actually have to make this sacrifice to ensure your hair continues to grow. Yes, I know that your hair always gets dirty and oily at some point, but shampoos can lead to breakages. Stick to conditioners or leave-in conditioners when washing your hair.

6. Avoid hair dryers

Instead of using a hair dryer, use a brush to gently pull your hair through it. The more natural method causes less damage to the strands and allows them to air-dry more quickly, which preserves moisture and prevents frizzing.
