Growing nice long hair | Hair Styling in St Joseph, Mn | Elise Marcus Salon

A couple of days later but I’m back with some pointers for growing long, strong beautiful hair. If you are serious about growing your hair out you want it to be as healthy as possible. I’m going to share with you some time tested do’s and do not’s for getting and keeping your hair healthy.

One of the biggest things is not shampooing your hair everyday. You should try to shampoo your hair as little as possible because shampoos actually strip your hair of its natural oils. If you are one to shampoo your hair everyday you can start by changing to every other day and from there going to every third or fourth day. I’m not saying don’t shower, just don’t shampoo your hair.

Brushing your hair is a good way to stimulate your scalp and also move natural oils from your scalp to the rest of your hair. Make sure you only brush your hair when it is dry. When your hair is wet it is weaker and easier to break. It is best to use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair when it is wet. After your hair is dry you can use a brush if needed.

Heat styling your hair causes a lot of damage. Blow drying and ironing your hair zaps it’s moisture. If you do need to use a blow dryer or iron on your hair there are products that can protect your hair from heat damage. The best thing to do is to let your hair air dry. You can keep your hair wrapped in a towel until it’s done dripping and then let it dry naturally the rest of the way.

These are some of the most important things to do when you are trying to grow your hair long. Next time I will talk about ways to style and color your hair without damaging it.
