If you want longer hair as soon as humanely possible, there are a few methods you can try to help it grow, or simply make it look longer. This post is going to help you get the long hair of your dreams – of course some methods are quicker than others, and some will take quite some time. Here’s what to do:
Look After Your Hair Properly
The first step is to make sure that you’re looking after your hair properly. Things like the way you wash your hair and the products you use can make a big difference to how long your hair looks. For example, you should take time to shampoo your hair properly, massaging your scalp as you do so. Don’t use water at a high temperature, as this can dry out your hair. However, you should limit the amount of times per week you wash your hair, as this can actually hinder your progress. Don’t wash your hair any more than 3 times a week, and use dry shampoo if you have to. The natural oils in your hair will help it to grow to a lovely length!
Dry your hair gently using a hairdryer on a low setting with a heat protectant spray or serum. If you can leave your hair to dry naturally, then that’s better. Natural styling products are best but you can use regular styling products as long as you keep them to a minimum. Hair oil and hair masks should be used regularly!
Eat a Healthy Diet and Try Growth Supplements
For your hair to grow long, shiny, and healthy, you need to eat plenty of healthy protein. This means lots of fish, lean meat, nuts, eggs, greek yogurt, beans and other legumes, and leafy veg like spinach. Omega 3 fatty acids can be found in fish and avocados, so get lots of them into your diet too. Drink at least 2 litres of water per day, and you could even try growth supplements to give you a boost. Biotin for hair growth works well!
Try to cut out as much junk as you can, limiting yourself to a few treats per week. You can have your favourite foods and sweets, but it’s all about practicing moderation to have a healthy, balanced diet.
Visit the Hairdresser
Your hairdresser can usually do a few things to help you have longer hair, fast. They can think of a way to cut/style your hair so that it looks longer, and they can also colour it to give the illusion of longer hair. One way to get a lot of length on your hair fast is to apply hair extensions. There are many methods of doing this, so you’ll need to pick the right method for you. Clip ins are the cheapest and easiest, but they don’t make your hair look longer permanently. You can have hair extensions applied with micro rings/nanorings too, attaching the hair to your head and making it look longer for a good few months.
The above methods are the quickest ways for you to get longer looking hair – good luck!
