Tips and Tricks for Long, Shiny, Healthy Hair

There is no real way to make your hair grow faster. However, you can ensure more length by preventing breakage: healthy hair is usually longer, fuller hair.

Some hairstyles are actually damaging to your scalp. If your braids, buns and ponytails give you a headache by the end of the day, loosen up! Curly and wavy-haired people should always use wide-toothed combs when dealing with wet hair, as they will otherwise risk breaking and damaging the weakened strands. Also, heat tools are particularly hard on both the hair and the scalp, encouraging hair breakage.

2. Visit your salon.
It might not seem right to get haircuts in order to promote length, but the better your haircut, the less time you'll spend using heat styling tools, which cause considerable hair damage. While your hair initially may be shorter, when it grows in, it will look thicker and fuller if all the ends are in good shape.

3. Eat more healthily.
