How to maintain your long hair?
The longer the hair, the more attention it requires. The dream for many women is to have long, voluminous, full and healthy hair.
However, long hair is fragile and requires a lot of maintenance. Indeed, they tend to lose shine due to external aggressions, and to be damaged and split along the lengths.
Here are some tips to adopt in your beauty routine to maintain and take care of your long hair:
Trim the ends regularly
Firstly, to maintain beautiful hair, it is essential to go to the hairdresser to cut the damaged ends and eliminate split ends .
If the split ends are not eliminated, they rise in the hair and break higher and higher. The ends of the hair then become finer and less full.
Cutting a few centimeters, ideally every 3 to 4 months, will strengthen the hair and boost its growth.
Brush your hair carefully
Brushing your hair well, once a day, is essential to remove all dirt, make hair more supple and detangle knots.
The best way to brush your hair is to start at the lengths and then work your way up to the scalp.
Gentle brushing helps stimulate blood circulation in the scalp and distribute its essential sebum production to nourish the lengths.
Regarding the choice of brush, a natural bristle brush is preferred. A classic brush tends to break the hair fiber and encourage the appearance of split ends.
Choosing the right products suited to your hair type
All hair products (shampoo, conditioner, mask, etc.) must be chosen and adapted according to your hair type .
In addition, these products must not be aggressive to the hair (without silicones, sulfates, quartenary ammoniums, PEGs, etc.) at the risk of damaging it.
The products must be gentle and composed with a maximum of natural ingredients in order to best respect the hair fiber.
Pamper your hair with natural care
There is no secret to keeping your hair long, you have to take care of it regularly. Hair needs nutrition and hydration.
Vegetable oils are real allies for maintaining and beautifying hair. Certain oils also have properties to repair and restore vigor to dry and damaged hair.
They can be used in the form of an oil bath, to be carried out once a week. The ideal is to leave it on the lengths of the hair for a few hours, or even overnight, to deeply nourish and hydrate the hair fiber.
To promote faster hair growth , massaging your scalp with oil is very effective because it helps stimulate the microcirculation of the scalp.
Limit or ban the use of heating devices
The use of hot air hair dryers, straighteners or even curling irons should be limited to keep hair healthy. In fact, heat damages the hair since it reduces its hydration level, and thus destroys the structure ofthe hair's keratin .
It is therefore preferable to let your hair dry in the open air, and to blow-dry or straighten it only occasionally.
Adopt good everyday actions
To preserve beautiful hair, it is strongly recommended to wash it 1 to 2 times a week at most. Indeed, shampooing too frequently risks damaging the scalp and therefore making the hair greasy. In addition, the water should be lukewarm, or even cold if bearable, to add shine and strength to the hair.
After washing, to dry your hair, a bamboo fiber towel is more effective than a classic cotton towel because it allows it to dry 4 times faster. It also limits the appearance of frizz and does not damage the hair.
Cotton pillowcases tend to promote frizz and tangling, so it is advisable to replace it with a silk or satin pillowcase. The hair slides more easily on these materials, friction is thus avoided.
Finally, you should avoid doing a tight hairstyle (braids, weaving, tight buns), and using classic elastics because this damages and breaks the hair. Satin or silk elastics are preferred because they are more respectful of the hair.
Take a course of beauty food supplements
To maintain healthy hair, it is very important to eat a healthy and balanced diet rich in nutrients.
Dietary deficiencies can have consequences on the hair: a lack of shine, breakage of the hair fiber (appearance of split ends), slower growth as well as more or less abundant hair loss.
To stock up on vitamins and give your hair a boost, there are food supplements targeted for hair beauty.
