Get a proper, growth start

Go to your hairdresser, get a trim to get rid of all the damaged hair and split ends. Make your stylist supportive of your goal of having longer tresses.

Cutting may not always be the option because you can go with a protein conditioning program to give your hair a fresh, healthy start. This can also reverse the damages that your hair has incurred from the chemicals of various hair products you may have used.

Keep it trimmed

Make sure that you visit your hairdresser on a regular basis, once every six to eight weeks to have a slight trim. This will keep your hair in great shape and preserve the right amount of hair for growing.

If not, your hair would most likely be prone to split ends therefore reversing the growing out process by having more hair cuts to remove the splits. You will also avoid the bad hair phase by having transitional hairstyles that would get you through the stages of hair growth.

Invest on hair products

To maintain healthy hair through out the growth process, having the best hair care products at hand is a must. These include shampoos, conditioners, gels, mousse, detanglers, hair lotion or hairspray.

Be selective in finding which products best suit your hair type. Consult your hairdresser to help you out on the proper usage and right application of these products.

Brush properly

Excessive brushing leads to split ends or ripped hair. Follow proper techniques in hair brushing. First allow your hair to fall over your face, then carefully brush your hair from the nape of your head and down to the hair strands.

Use your hands to smoothen your hair after each brush stroke. Brush your hair in this position and remember to do this when your hair is 100% dry. Hair is at its weakest position when it is wet. Using a wooden comb is also the best choice for maintaining healthy hair.
