Hair Care Tips For Long, Thick Hair

Long, thick hair needs extra care to keep them strong and healthy. If you have long, thick hair, or want to have long hair, follow these hair care tips.

1 - Use The Right Shampoo For Your Hair

Different hair types have different needs. It helps to use the right shampoo for your hair to encourage your hair to grow and keep it healthy. For people with long hair, Volume Shampoo and Conditioner will help keep hair from looking flat due to its weight. This combination will keep your hair strong and full of life.

2 - Brush Your Hair Correctly

If you have long hair, you cannot skip the brush. You need to brush your hair (once it’s dry) twice a day to keep the strands smooth and untangled to minimize breakage. This also helps distribute the hair’s natural oils from the roots to the tip. However, be gentle and start detangling from the roots and move upward. Be careful not to overbrush either because this will cause breakage.

3 - Deep Condition Once A Week

Deep condition your hair once a week to replenish moisture throughout the hair. Long hair tend to have dry tips when natural oils are not distributed properly. Likewise, if you style your long hair, you will need to replenish any lost moisture from the heat.

4 - Use A Hair Wrap

Thick, long hair takes a long time to dry. You may have been tempted to use a blow-dryer, which is incredibly drying. Instead of that, or the equally damaging vigorous-towel-scrubbing method, simply wrap your hair in a hair wrap or an old t-shirt and let it dry. This will reduce frizz and it keeps hair out of your way while it dries.

5 - Watch Your Hair Styles

Do you put your hair up in a ponytail or a bun often? These hairstyles pull at the root of your hair, and cause hair fall. If you want your hair to stay strong and grow longer, choose loose hair styles and bands that don’t pull at the roots, such as a scrunchy or a plastic coil band.

6 - Trim Your Hair Regularly

It seems counter-productive, but a regular trim is necessary to keep your hair healthy. A trim removes split ends and other types of damage so the tips of your long hair look strong and luscious. Get your hair trimmed every 10 to 12 weeks or 6 to 8 weeks if you color or heat style your hair.

Follow these hair care tips and use the Volume Shampoo and Conditioner to maintain your long, thick hair.
