Short hair looks amazing—but eventually, you get tired of it. There are very few hairstyles that you can create with short hair, and let’s just say it, long hair is much more fun! So if you’ve been really missing your long hair, these tips and tricks will help you grow out your hair faster while keeping them healthy.

Stop Shying Away From The Scissors

Now, don’t get us wrong. Cutting your hair off doesn’t contribute as much to growing your hair out as it does to making sure your hair looks well-kept and neat while they grow out. Another benefit is that regular trims get rid of any split ends that may ride up and cause your hair to look dull, dry and even cause them to break off.

We recommend visiting your hair dresser every two months to check if you need a trim or not. This also helps keep your hair healthy and nice, promoting proper distribution of nutrients.

Educate Yourself On Sulphates And Parabens—And Stop Putting Them On Your Head

Even though shampooing your hair might sound like a great idea—and it is, if some factors are kept in check—excessive use can end up ruining your hair and slowing down your hair growth by making your hair brittle, dry and prone to breakage.

Here’s a quick exercise; get your shampoo bottle and flip it over to where the ingredients are listed. Now, scroll through the list and try to point out the number of compounds that have sulphate and parabens listed.

These are chemicals that strip your hair of its natural oils, limiting nourishment and making them dry and dull, instead of just clean. To avoid this, and encourage healthier hair, we recommend switching to sulphate and paraben free shampoos. Check out these rinses by Kevin Murphy as an alternative.
