So you've wanted different long hairstyles since way back in the day when your mom made you sport the pixie cut every year until you were thirteen? Well, you're in luck. Long hairstyles are very in this year for any hair type, from straight to curly and even thin to thick. When you sport long hairstyles, it's important to keep it up and looking and feeling healthy.
First step to
preventing hair breakage is conditioning. When you condition your hair,
try and find a strengthening shampoo and conditioner set, which many
different brands offer. With long hairstyles you have to leave your
conditioner on for at least 60 seconds, this way the conditioner really
gets to the roots and scalp keeping your hair soft and healthy.
is also important, especially with long hair since most people with
long hairstyles become so tempted to throw their hair up with a ponytail
holder, that you only use holders with no metal. You can find these in
the hair care section at most any store, even the dollar store! Just
make sure to never use the ponytail holders with the little metal part
on them; it can rip your hair out causing more unsightly breakage.
important part of preventing breakage is combing your hair from the
bottom up. After showering especially it is really helpful to comb your
hair using a wide toothed comb rather than a bristle brush and start at
the ends working your way to the roots. This will prevent the breakage
involved in ripping through your hair from top to bottom with a brush.
Although with long hair style especially, this method can be time
consuming, it really is worth it and you will see a big difference.
hairstyles can be confusing with thick or curly hair, it can tend to
look a little like a pyramid, and that's not something most people want.
If you have thick or curly hair and thing long hairstyles are something
you're interested in, talk to your hair stylist about layers. Layers
can help prevent your hair from having that pyramid look and can add
depth to your hair.
Long styles are something that can be
suitable for just about anyone, just keep in mind these healthy hair
pointers and remember that long hair is usually more maintenance, but
can be worth it.
