While cute pixie crops and contemporary bobs are pretty cool, most girls yearn for super long, mermaid-length hair at least once in their life. You know, the type that makes the need for a bra redundant? Tresses so long you’re expecting your next Tinder date to be called Prince Eric? Okay, we’ll stop now. You get the picture.
Whether modern mermaid or just a style maven, you might be wondering about the best ways to grow your hair out fast. Where length is concerned, the focus should always be on health and strength. The more hair you have, the more it weighs, and the stronger your locks have to be to carry it without breaking.
So, you can either step up your beauty regime or cheat your way to an XXL look with high-quality clip in hair extensions.
Patience Is Everything
Growing out your hair can feel agonisingly slow. This is because it is; healthy hair only grows around a quarter to half an inch every month. Patience if everything, but the good news is that you can fake it ‘til you make it with clip in extensions. They are easy to use and a great way to experiment with longer hairstyles, while you’re waiting for your natural tresses to catch up. Hair extensions are available in a wide variety of lengths, so you can go all out and try the XXL look whenever you please.
No More Post-Shower Wraps
When you get out of the shower, avoid doing that thing that lots of ladies do; the twirly towel hair wrap. It is precisely the kind of action – easily done and rarely considered – that causes tonnes of damage. The secret to long hair is strength. Wrapping and twisting it tight causes strands to break and split ends to appear further up the hair shaft. You need to either let your tresses air dry or invest in a microfibre towel. They are super flexible and thin, which makes them much gentler on the hair.
Switch Up Your Ponytail
The ponytail is a classic updo that suits all kinds of situations. It can also be a bit of a menace if you don’t wear it in the right way. Pony fans should be switching up the placement of their hair, even if it is just slightly. This is a good way to stop putting pressure on the same patch of hair, time and again. It minimises breakages, helps the strands to stay strong, and it’ll support the growth of longer, thicker hair. If you’ve got short or cropped hair and you want to experiment with the ponytail look, just pick up a clip in ponytail from our online store.
Take a Cold Water Rinse
At the end of every shower, turn on the cold water and rinse your whole head for a few seconds. Yes, it’ll feel like a few seconds of mild torture – especially in the winter – but it has been proven to help the hair grow long and healthy. Cold water smooths down the outer surface of the strands and prevents moisture from escaping. This, in turn, reduces the rate of snagging, drying, and heat based damage. It’s an effective beauty tip which takes just a few seconds. Yet, it can strengthen the building blocks that you need for lush XXL locks.
