For Beautiful Long hair – ‘Maintenance is the Key’

Long hair definitely enhances the beauty in a woman. Not only can one possessing long hair resort to different kinds of styling, but she can also ensure that she receives preferential treatment in society due to the richness in look it provides. However, maintenance is the key as otherwise things can go horribly wrong and backfire with dreadful consequences. Remember, all the ghosts in horror movies have long hair. Here is what you need to do.

Know how to use the shampoo and the conditioner

It’s not about just applying them in any way you like. Women with long hair should not shampoo regularly. Although it keeps the hair hydrated and clean, too much shampoo can lead to frizziness and brittle hair as a result of the sulfates present in the shampoo. Thrice a week is just perfect. Conditioner should be used every time you use a shampoo. In case you do not want to use a shampoo, a cleansing conditioner can be the go to product. Always remember that shampoo should be applied to the scalp and conditioner to the ends of the hair. For more technical guidance, one can always take the help of a professional hair stylist.

Dry them with care

Haste makes waste. This is more than applicable for your long hair. It is important that hair is dried with enough care. First the extra water should be soaked out with the help of preferably a soft cloth over a towel. A wide tooth comb is advisable for detangling the locks. The best way to dry is to leave it for air dry. In any case, one should avoid using the towel rigorously for the purpose of drying it fast as this will again lead to frizziness and then result in split ends. Hair dryers are better off in the drawer.

Regular trimming helps

Regular trips to the hair salon for trimming is a must. When long hair is kept untrimmed for a long time, one can associate herself with damaged lock ends and split ends. Regularly trimming hair will ensure that this is avoided and the amount of damaged cuticles due to styling and pollution is limited. Chopping off the unwanted hair will help you get rid of the split ends, make maintaining the length of the hair easier and also promote the growth of healthy hair.

Get the correct ponytail

Ponytails look nice and adorable as long as it is the correct one. Having proper knowledge on the pertinent hair styling ideas for long hair is the key. Women with long hair should avoid getting tight ponytails or any kind of tight hairstyles done on a regular basis. This can lead to hair breakage and cause increased hair fall. Long hair is of no use if you keep losing them. Using cotton bands over rubber bands is definitely the better option. Also ensure that you sleep with your hair open and not with the ponytail however adorable you look. Afterall, no one wants hairfall.

Diet does play a role

A proper diet is responsible for a proper health. It is the same for maintaining your long hair. A vitamin rich diet will help maintain your long hair and enhance the overall shine and feel of it. Vitamin A & C can be consumed by eating apples, mangoes, sweet potatoes, etc. Any form of milk product and fatty fish like tuna, mackerel, etc can help consume Vitamin B & D. Another thing one should know is adding Vitamin E in the hair care regimen is a good option. It is naturally very favourable for hair and should be resorted to on a regular basis.

It’s not about having long hair. It’s about having long hair that looks nice and attractive. Proper maintenance of your long hair is the key.

Secure it with a rubber band. You can use hair spray to get a perfect finish.

  2. Next, continue with the upside down braiding of your hair. Take a large section of hair from the back, divide it into three sections and continue braiding just like the normal french braid. Secure it with elastic and use hair spray for a perfect braid.

  3. After completing two braids, you should have two neat french braids (normal and upside down) and two loose sides of your hair without any braids.

  2. Use hair sprays to keep your braid neat and out of any mess.

  3. If you have curly hair, your hair will easily get tangled. To avoid this, brush your hair often while styling and keep it tangle-free.

Wavy hair creates a great voluminous braid. So, go for it and enjoy braiding!
