Hair Care Tips & Tricks #1

Hey guys, so today I'm going to be telling you how to keep your hair healthy and also some tips on how to grow it. I'm also thinking about making this a series??
Okay so lets face it, we've all tried to grow our hair out like Rapunzel, or the typical tumblr girl and cut it all off half way through as it seems pretty much impossible! When i was around 8 up until the age of 12 i had an extremely short bob cut, we are talking earlobe length, and ever since I've been trying to grow it out. I've literally tried everything that didn't involve taking crazy pills! So here's the best things I've used that have actually worked and helped me grow my bob out to bra strap length (around 9 inches in 2 and a half years, which for the rate my hair grows at is a miracle in itself!).

1. Patience, hair takes a very very very long time to grow. Theres no magic remedy to get you healthy shiny long locks over night, or in a month for that matter! if you quit half way through and cut it all off, your not going to accomplish anything. When growing your hair, patience is your best friend.

2. Get your hair healthy! When your hair is damaged, not only will it take ages to grow, it will look bad and you will have to cut it short in order to get it healthy!

3.Make sure you aren't over-washing your hair, over washing your hair can lead to your hair being damaged. Wash your hair around every 3 days, if you (like me) have curly hair you can usually get away with your hair not having to be washed for 5-6 days.

5. Reduce or stop using heat on your hair! find other ways to style it, try a messy bun, a fishtail braid etc.. Using heat damages your hair. In fact, I've not used a hair dryer in 8 weeks and have only straightened it once in the past 7 weeks!

6. Try not to put your hair in tight pony tails or high up hairstyles as it will cause your hair to break and not want to grow.

7. Experiment with different shampoos and hair products as sometimes the reason your hair isn't growing is because it isn't being washed with things that suit it. For example, if you share shampoo with house mates or a family member, remember that everyone has different hair types and if you have dry hair and are using products for oily hair, its just going to get dryer!

I haven't included all my tips as I'm considering making this an on going series, what do you think?
