I’ve always kept my hair long. Except for a short stint in middle school…and once more when I tried to jump on the short hair trend a few years ago. Any time I try a short cut, I just don’t feel like myself. The most important thing to achieving length is keeping the hair healthy, and it is not easy to do!
I try to minimize the amount of times I put heat to my hair. Every so often I’ll blow my hair out or get it done, but I usually just wear my natural curls. Yea, it looks a little hippie/beachy sometimes, but unless I really feel the need to look super polished I try to minimize the damage.
The other way I keep my hair healthy is by using products that are good to my hair. I love moisturizing products, especially ones with fortifying ingredients like keratin protein, without harsh chemicals. It’s important to take a few extra minutes for a deep conditioning mask a couple of times a month, and make sure that a heat protectant is applied before using a blow drier or iron.
It’s a 10 makes some of the best products I’ve used at a fair price. I’ve been using It’s a 10 for years (I couldn’t imagine my medicine cabinet without the famous purple bottle of leave-in conditioner!), and the product line keeps expanding to include better and better stuff.
