About two years ago, I got a horrendous razor cut. I mean... chopped off.
Borderline mullet. Layers up to my eyes! AWFUL. It was not at all what I
wanted and I was pretty devastated. So ever since then, I've been relentlessly
trying to grow it all out. Now, experiencing all this and being in the hair business
myself...I've learned a thing or two about a thing or two. So I wanted to share
with you a few tips and tricks I've learned to growing your hair out.
#1.) Use a good, moisturizing or damage-repair conditioner.
I'm partial to KMS CA Moist Repair conditioner. One trick I know is after shampooing
and using this conditioner, I rinse it out then coat JUST my ends with the
same conditioner and leave it in. It detangles and softens my ends without
having to buy that extra hair product! And since it's not on my roots, it doesn't
weigh my hair down or get greasy.
#2.) Put your guns down!...Or at least use them sparingly.
Blow dryers, flat irons, curling irons....They're all master manipulators of hair,
but they can do quite a bit of damage if you use them every day. So at
least every OTHER day put the tools down, give your hair a break, and embrace
your natural texture!
#3.) Take vitamins and use style-prep products DAILY.
Vitamins rich in E and biotin promote healthy, fuller, and shinier hair as it
grows. And products like CHI keratin mist and Biosilk provide hair with strength
#4.) Schedule routine hair trimming appointments.
Nothing gets rid of the split ends that you already have. They have to be cut off.
So be sure to book an appointment at least every 6-8 weeks. The longer you
wait, the more your hair can split and break off... which takes you back to
