When we have long hair, sometimes we think we want to change it up and get a new hairstyle. That’s when we go to our stylist and tell her to chop all our hair off to about chin-length. At first we think that shorter styles are more fun and easy to take care of instead of long hair. Then after a while we begin to get sick of styling it the same way day after day and not being able to put it in a ponytail or style it any other way than just straighten it. Now is the time when we begin to grow our hair out.
For some, the process of growing out your hair can be easy because of the growth rate. For others, it may be a little more difficult; their hair might have a little growth problem. Therefore, their hair can’t grow very fast. That is why they find it more difficult to style their hair after so long, because they can’t grow it out and it tends to look sloppy. They may need a little help to spurt their hair growth and get it to look long and luscious like it used to.
One of the best ways to get your hair to grow longer is to get it trimmed regularly. You may have heard this before and it may seem hard to believe, but hair truly does grow longer when it has a little help from your stylist and her hair shears. Getting trims regularly can help spurt a little growth because it clears out all split ends that begin to develop in your hair after so long. With the help of shears, you can eliminate these split ends that act as plugs to your growth and the hair can breathe enough to grow. Just remember to do this regularly so that you can grow it faster and longer.
Another big part that helps the hair grow fabulously is wearing your hair in simple styles. For example, if you straighten or curl your hair everyday, you are creating more split ends because of the application of heat. Instead, try showering in the morning before school and throwing your hair up into a flirty ponytail. It will keep your hair out of your face and can still look cute and fresh each day. Be careful not to tie a ponytail too tight; it will only pull on the ends and can create split ends. Try putting a little gel in the hair to get some bouncy curls.
The normal routine for some girls before they go to bed is to brush their hair over and over until it looks and feels like silk. Smooth hair is what every girl wants, right? The only problem with this is that it creates frizz and and stops it from doing its thing to grow. The less you brush your hair, the more it can flow and extend its length.
Basically the main step in getting your hair to flourish and grow beautifully is to prevent split ends. Split ends and sloppy hair follicles are the main things that keep hair from growing out. When you perform these few steps and follow them each day, you will notice a difference in the growth rate of your hair. Also remember to live a good lifestyle by drinking lots of water and by eating the right foods.
Women all over the country have heard that straightening their hair can be the worst thing for it. Breakage in the ends and frizz from root to tip could be a couple of the negative effects of straightening your hair daily. Some see these as reasons to quit straightening their hair and feel that if they do straighten, their hair will break easily and become incredibly damaged. Just because some of these things can happen to your hair, it doesn’t mean that you should never straighten it. There are few easy solutions to breakage in the hair follicle.
One way to at least prevent damage is to use your heat protectant spray and not use the heat tool as much. This may be one of the easiest ways to solve the problem but it may not completely resolve the issue. This may be the best option for those women who are attached to their long locks of beauty. It’s true that some women refuse to cut their hair because of its length. They become so attached to having their hair hang so long that they would never even consider cutting the ends off. Using plenty of thermal care and watching the heat exposure is the best way for these kind of women to lessen the harsh effects of straightening.
For those who may not be so attached to their hair, they may consider bringing out the shears. It’s a good way to update your look as well as remove any bad ends that are causing your hair to look dead and dull. It is amazing to see how a woman with long hair can get a shorter look and can also make herself look so sophisticated. Shorter bobs tend to look more professional and put together than hair that hangs down with scary ends. That is why chopping it all off may be a great idea if your hair is becoming a pain to straighten in the mornings.
You don’t necessarily need to go from butt-length hair to chin-length hair. As long as you give your ends a fresh look so you can start clean with the straightening process. If your hair is shorter, there won’t be as many tangles because there won’t be as much hair to get jumbled together into knots. This makes you even save a little time with styling each day! As long as you’re not completely obsessed with having long hair, cutting it to a shorter style would be a great idea to avoid tangles and damage from heat.
You may have never thought that you would see the words “hair straightener” and “hair scissors” in the same sentence. However, it’s true: you can eliminate the extreme damage of a hair straightener by using hair scissors. Although you maybe shouldn’t trust yourself to cut the hair off without the help of a hairstylist. But it is a good idea to give your ends a fresh look while repairing damage at the same time!
As the years roll over so do the hair styles and what may have been a hair trend last year, may be a hair style no no this year. Of course, there are some classic hair styles that will never really go out of style, however, keep them up to date to keep yourself looking fresh.

One of the things you need to decide when purchasing your flat iron is what plate size is best for your hair so that you get the best straightening performance possible with your new iron. Getting the right plate size for your hair type is important for the hair iron to optimally get the looks you are hoping for from your iron.
The best overall plate width for everyone is the one inch size. One inch plates are intended to straighten medium length hair but is a good catch all size for those looking for a versatile iron.
Of course if you have very thin hair you will want a smaller plate in order to best manage these thin locks. This smaller plate size is ideal also for very short hair since it makes getting those small amounts of hair easier to get into smaller half or three-quarter inch plates.
For those with really thick and very long hair larger plates can be used to straighten the hair. Hair of this type does not need the small minuet details from smaller plates and can be done quicker with the larger plates.
Getting the right size of plates for your hair will ensure that you have the right amount of hot plate to run down your hair but not so little that straightening your locks takes all day long.
For women who have very long hair or those trying to grow out their locks split ends is a nightmare they hope will not come true. The only way to get rid of those split ends and have a healthy vibrant looking head of hair is to get them cut off.

One of the biggest causes for split ends in hair is excess heat and the damage that can come from your hair losing its own natural moisture.

But there is an easier way. You can always opt for hair extensions as an easy alternative to create your beautiful look. Some women mistakenly think that hair extensions are only for the rich and famous or celebrities and that normal people shouldn’t or can’t have them. This is the totally wrong way to think. There is absolutely no reason that you shouldn’t have hair extensions if you want them.
