Products to Help Grow Your Less-than-Luscious Locks

Let There Be Length

My hair used to be down to my knees, and in a moment of impulse I cut it all off, donating my 36 inches to kids with cancer. It was a gesture I would do again ten times over, if only I could get my hair that long once more.

My product arsenal (oils, gels, mousses, etc) contains a ton of chemicals that strip my fragile follicles with each use, and as a result they don’t help my endeavor to grow my now-shoulder length locks. No matter how much I invest in fish-oil or biotin supplements my hair has never ceased to stop splitting at the ends (my excessive use of a flat-iron is partially to blame).

In a last ditch effort I started swapping some products out of my hair care routine with ones that promise to protect and strengthen my strands, in order to help them grow long and strong. I’m happy to report that I found success with certain vitamin rich formulas.

How To: Summer Curly Locks

Posted by Samantha on Wed, 07/24/2013 - 3:33 PM

Want to rock smooth, springy hair? You’ll need to whip up a curly hair cocktail. The best way to control your frizz and define your curl is to mesh products together. You’ll need a few things – click thru and see for yourself here!

Opting for something with more definition and stronger hold? Try a gel mousse mixture (like TIGI’s Catwalk Curlesque Lightweight Mousse combined with Curly Sexy Hair’s Curling Gel). But be careful here, these products tend to be drying so if you use them often you should deep condition more frequently, Redken’s Curvaceous Dive Mask will do the trick.
