Hair That Constantly Grows

April 5, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

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.

Do They Make the Cut? The Case for Quality Shears

October 7, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Most people go to a hair salon to get their hair cut or styled. But there are a few that like to do it themselves, or maybe just do the occasional bang trim or split end clean up without the hassle of a trip to the salon. If you even occasionally cut your own hair, trim your bangs or maybe take the scissors to your child’s hair – you should really invest in a pair of good quality hair scissors.

But my kitchen scissors do the job just fine. Why should I buy scissors just to cut hair?

The easy answer to this question is – why shouldn’t you? What do you use your kitchen scissors for? If you’re like most people, you probably use them for cutting wrapping paper, opening plastic bags and packages, and maybe even cutting plants. Do you really think that those will be the sharpest, best scissors for the job of hair cutting? No.

When it comes to your hair, you deserve to treat it right. After all, your hair and your appearance is one of the first things that people notice about you and if you present yourself to the world with shaggy, damaged hair that looks like it’s just been chopped with a pair of kitchen shears, what does that say about you?

Quality hair shears sport extremely sharp blades that give you precise, clean cut that won’t leave your hair looking damaged. Just using a pair of poor quality scissors once can give you split ends, tear your hair and give you an uneven cut, so even if you plan on only occasionally cutting your hair, you should invest in a pair of hair scissors so you no longer need to share with the kitchen drawer.

So what should you look for when it comes to quality scissors? Well, obviously price is an indication of a good pair of scissors, but it doesn’t have to be the only factor. If you only need hair shears for occasional use, you don’t need to break the bank. What you should look for is a sharp set of blades. An accurate cut depends on perfectly sharp blades. Generally for occasional trims, you won’t need any fancy blades such as beveled or convex blades; straight blades should be just fine.

You will want a comfortable handle and grip. This is especially important if you’re a lefty. There are specific hair shears designed for left handed people, so be sure that you find a pair that works for you. You aren’t doing yourself any favors if you cannot properly hold the tool. Thumb grips are largely a personal choice; many are removable and can be changed out.

Quality hair shears range in price anywhere from $60 to over $500, but you don’t have to go all out with your first pair. Starting with student shears is a great way to get a feel for what you need in a pair of scissors for a less expensive price. Also, if you are only using them occasionally – you likely don’t need the top of the line. However, remember not to sacrifice quality, even for occasional use. A quality pair of scissors will give you an even, precise cut without damaging your hair. Also, they will be comfortable and extremely durable. Quality is important, because your hair is worth more than the same pair of dirty scissors that you keep in your junk drawer!
