Growing out your hair can be a labor of love or a test of patience, especially when it feels like your hair is growing out too slowly. There’s no Rapunzel magic here at Deseo Salon & BlowDry, but we do have a few simple spells to make the journey a little easier. Consider these easy tips for speeding up the process and enjoying the in-between phase.
Regular Trims for Longer Hair
One common misconception many beauty gurus make is to assume that growing out your hair means hanging on to every last dull, tired split end. The good news is there’s no need to fear the scissors! Regular trims can actually make your hair healthier, which promotes long, radiant locks. The importance of eliminating damaged ends cannot be overstated when it comes to speeding up growth. Breakage causes the hair to lose length, along with shine, volume, and smoothness.
Experts recommend stopping by your local salon every six to eight weeks for a trim. This will keep your hair feeling and looking vibrant while you wait for that dream length.
The In-Between Style
At Deseo, we’re big advocates for no bad hair days! Growing out your hair doesn’t have to mean suffering through a boring cut or style. Take the opportunity to experiment with fun, chic medium-length looks for the transition period. Layers are a great option for adding volume to delicate, fine hair that may be slower to lengthen. Trendy lobs are always on style with a pop of bold color to bring out the best of your in-between hair.
When choosing color options, remember to be gentle with your hair. Excessive bleaching and chemical treatments cause dryness and breakage. This will ultimately slow down hair growth. Avoid boxed dyes and DIY color kits, minimize heat styling, and opt for hues that require minimal to no bleaching or lightening.
For medium-length cuts and colors that will have you loving the transition, come visit our luxury colorists for a hue that’s right for you.
Relax and Refresh
Does waiting for your hair to grow have you a little on edge? Then your lovely locks might feel stressed out, too. Take a moment to focus on your personal health and wellness. Getting the right amount of essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals goes a long way when it comes to healthy hair, nails, and skin.
Some of the best vitamins for hair growth include:
- Vitamin A, found in sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, spinach, and kale.
- Vitamin C, found in a rainbow of citrus fruits and berries.
- A rich component of bee’s pollen, Vitamin B, which is easily added to smoothies and protein shakes.
- Vitamin E, dense in avocados and foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.
Don’t always have the time for a fresh salad? Natural vitamin supplements for beauty are a great solution for busy days.
Choose nutrient-rich hair care products to complement your healthy lifestyle. For example, Oribe’s luxury line is infused with hydrating botanicals to unlock shine. Oribe’s serums, oils, and conditioners are a must-have for anyone looking to keep their hair healthy while growing out long locks.
