Expert Advice for Keeping Long Hair Healthy

There's something about being a longhaired gal that many people don't know. Long hair requires different care. If you try to care for your long locks the way you would short hair, you can end up with some pretty serious damage. Here are some expert tips to help you maintain a healthy long mane.

Trim Regularly

Some people avoid trimming their hair because they think that it will take longer to grow their hair out, but it's actually the opposite that is true. Long hair is more prone to split ends, and if your hair is continually splitting and breaking it can dramatically slow your growth. By regularly trimming just the tips of your hair you stop this problem with breakage, reduce tangling, and give your hair a smoother and healthier appearance, all while helping it grow longer faster.

Shampoo Correctly

For most hair types long hair should not be shampooed every day. Shampooing strips the natural oils that protect and nourish your hair. A shampoo schedule of every two to three days is usually sufficient. If you work out or engage in activities frequently that cause you to sweat, just give your hair a good rinse in the shower on the days you're not shampooing.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Longer hair has a tendency to dry out and become brittle because it takes longer for your natural oils to reach from the roots to the tips. So you need to give it a little help with regular hydrating treatments, in addition to the regular use of a moisturizing conditioner. There are many hydrating products to choose from, from hair masks to oil treatments. Ask your stylist to recommend products that would be best suited for your hair type.

Brush Carefully

You probably shouldn't be using the same kind of brush that your short-haired friends are using. Fine bristled brushes and combs create too much friction and can damage or even pull out your hair. Use a wide-tooth comb or a boar bristle brush instead, and try to avoid brushing when your hair is wet because that is when it's most vulnerable to breakage.

There are many little changes that those with long hair may need to make to keep their tresses healthy.
