Long Hair Tips and Styles
There are many long hairstyles you can wear to show off your longer hair. Braids are especially a nice style to wear if you have long hair. You can practice braiding on a string mop, or purchase hair pieces to practice on. In addition, your family members may allow you to braid their hair for the practice. You’ll want to concentrate on the basic braiding patterns for long hair styles, including French, English and Dutch braids.
You can use professional hairstyling products to help enhance your natural curls and waves. Apply mousse and wrap your hair into a hair twist or a knot when you go to bed. Allow your hair to air dry overnight, then undo the twist when you get up the next morning and you’ll have lush curls and waves.
Don’t use hair care products that have high alcohol content, since they may dry your hair out. In addition, a balanced diet using each of the food groups will actually help balance the moisture in your hair.
High winds can whip your long hair into tangles and even split ends. If you are in an open car or standing in an open, windy area, pull your long hair up and secure it. The sun also is damaging to hair because it can dry it out and burn your scalp. Protect your long hairstyle with a mild sunscreen applied to the scalp if you’re outside all day. Better yet, wear a hat to block out the damaging rays of the sun.
If you’re still looking for a good hairdresser you can trim the ends of your own hair to avoid split ends. Frequent trims are better for your hair than infrequent trims. If you can’t trim your hair well, ask a friend or family member to help. Only trim the ends of your hair when you have plenty of time, not when you are in a hurry. In addition, you may opt to only trim the split ends, although they may be hard to sort out.
