How to maintain Long Hair
August 10, 2008 2:32pm CST
I used to have long hair that ran right below my buttocks but lately it has started to break and the result is that my hair now doesn't go even up to my lower back. It had to be cut down to my shoulder level as the hair grew very thin due to excessive breakage and fall. Please advise me about some ways to get back the thick hair that I had before and how to maintain the hair to stay healthy.

Hi there and smile The first step is to begin with a good, healthy hair cut before you begin growing your hair. Hair grows long easiest when it is all one length, so even if you have to cut it shorter at first, go ahead: give it a blunt cut and make sure to cut off any damaged, permed, or color treated hair. Hair will grow best when healthy and natural. As it grows, don’t be afraid to trim it often. If you see any hint of damage, dryness or split ends, cut it immediately. The next step is to pamper your hair, which focuses more on what you should not do than what you should. You should not use heat styling methods; blow dryers, curling irons, hot curlers and crimpers will dry out your hair and cause it to break. Other styling methods to avoid are tight rubber bands, small braids or any other style that puts stress on the roots of your hair. Never use tight metal barrettes or anything that will clamp or pinch your hair. As aforementioned, perms and color treatments are inadvisable as well. happy mylotting and smile always!
