5 steps to achieving long summer strands

 
 
If you’re one of those gals opting out of the short hair trend and gravitating toward the idea of growing your hair before the next school year, you’ve come to the right place. Instead of buying super expensive shampoos and treatments that may only make your hair grow an extra millimeter, try our five simple steps that are bound to help your hair grow longer, and most importantly, faster.

    Save the shampoo

    You may think it’s gross to not wash your hair every day, but limiting washing to at least every other day will really help your hair grow long in a short amount of time. When you wash your hair too often, the natural oils are rinsed away. These oils are essential for healthy hair, so without them your strands become dry and weak—eep! For those of you whose hair tends to get grimy and greasy, check out dry shampoo. It works great for all hair colors, and leaves your hair looking fab.

    Say buh-bye to heat

    During the spring and summer months, it’s a lot more convenient for you to rock your natural hair. Plus, using too much heat on your hair by straightening or curling can cause some major damage. To give your locks a little life, try a texturizing spray. It will help achieve a beachy look without the stress of heat.

    Protect your locks

    We know you love to hang by the pool when it’s warm, but keep in mind that the chlorine could be taking a toll on your locks. To get those harsh chemicals out of your hair, try this chlorine-removing shampoo. And yep, you can sit pretty at your next salon appointment because your damaged locks are no more. Score!

    Take your vitamins

    Vitamins are really great for your overall health. Head out to your local drugstore and pick up some vitamins that specialize in and promote healthy hair. These particular vitamins contain biotin, which will leave your hair feeling stronger and healthier. It’s a win-win.

    Ditch the brush

    When it’s time to tame those tangles, opt for a wide-tooth comb rather than a brush. Wide-tooth combs are a lot gentler on your hair, and will help prevent breakage. After spritzing your fave leave–in conditioner, gather your locks and work your way from the bottom up. Less breakage means less split ends.

Just a little animal print goes a long way. Leopard flats, zebra scarf and spotty shirt are all super cute solo, but best kept apart.
