Growing up we have all been captivated and enamored by Disney princesses, especially their hair. It is usually long, silky and soft. Of course following the same footsteps, a lot of us can admit to being guilty of trying to brush our hair with a fork and failing at least once, thanks to Little Mermaid. So, when we decide to take the decision to grow our hair out, regardless of whether it is till our waist or even longer, we don’t realize what we are getting into until it is too late and then you’re too emotionally invested, and you end up in a love-hate relationship with it.
The first thing that is going to frustrate you is the fact that your hair probably isn’t growing fast enough. The first thing you can do is opt for the best shampoo for fast hair growth for your hair type, next you regularly oil your hair, massage your scalp to stimulate follicles, and lastly, introduce a vitamin rich diet into your lifestyle, especially vitamin B3 and B7.
You’re going to have to deal with tangles when it comes to long hair, even more so if you have curly long hair. One way you can minimize and reduce tangles is wrap your hair in a silk scarf and/or sleep on a silk pillow cover to reduce breakage and tangles. You’re going to find your hair interfering everywhere, be it in the gym, while you are cooking or just working, so it is recommended to keep your hair tied up lightly. Long hair needs a lot of attention and care, trims are important, especially if you notice visible split ends. Lastly, refrain from using too much product and heat treating your hair because that promotes damage and ruin your hair’s natural moisture and texture.
