Long Hairstyles - Keeping Up With Growing Hair

 In many ways, long hairstyles are the hardest to manage.  The longer hair gets, the more likely it is to tangle, get split ends, and become frizzy.  To combat these effects on longer hairstyles, it’s important to follow a regimen with increasing attention the longer you go between haircuts.

One of the simplest ideas is to ask your hair stylist for a long hairstyle that will grow out and maintain the look as long as possible.  Any good stylist will have options for you and take the time to discuss each of the hairstyles as long as you need in order to make an informed decision.

Common Problems Associated with Long Hair

No matter which hairstyle you choose, however, the longer your hair gets, the more likely it will present unavoidable problems that will require your attention.  A common problem with many hairstyles is frizziness, especially if you have straight hair.  Frizz is caused by parts of each hair strand separating from the core of the hair.  To guard against this, use a quality conditioner that infuses your long hair with moisture and nutrients.  Do this more often the longer your hair gets.

Longer hairstyles are also susceptible to split ends, which are, essentially, the same phenomenon as frizz, but only near the ends of each hair strand.  A good conditioner and regular trims will help you avoid this problem.  The sooner you notice split ends beginning, the less hair you’ll need trimmed off, so keep an eye on this as your hair gets long.

Tangles in a long hairstyle can be a real pain – literally!  The simplest way to avoid tangles is to brush out your hair before you take a shower or bath.  It doesn’t have to be anything elaborate – just a few good strokes all along the width of your hair should do the trick.

These simple tips for long hairstyles will help you maintain the beauty and health of your hair as it grows out.  Get into the habit of doing these things and it will quickly become routine.
