My guide to long healthy hair

It's been a long time coming to get my hair back to this length. It hasn't been this long since I moved to TX in 2014. I did the classic "college is hard" chop in January of 2015 and kept it short for about 2.5 years. My last chop was in April of last year and then I started growing it out for the wedding. To be honest, I am loving it long right now and Zach does too so I guess I'll keep it this way for a little while. 😉  

 Maintaining healthy long hair can be hard. The last thing anyone wants is nappy dead hair that clearly looks like it needs a chop. My secret to getting it long fast consisted of three things, prenatal vitamins (and NO don't get any ideas), a hair mask, and a trim about every six weeks. 

Vitamins: The prenatal vitamins have keratin in them and really help your hair to grow, but the key is to take them irregularly so your body doesn't get used to them. How I would take them is like at night for 2 days then take a break then take them at night or evening in the morning a few days later, basically no set schedule. My hair responded very positively to it. Other than the fact that hair grows faster everywhere (aka your legs). LOL 

Mask: The mask keeps your hair soft and conditioned and helps keep it healthy in the midst of heat. When I was really good about using it, I would use it once a week to every other week. It has to sit on your hair for 5 minutes and then be washed out well so it does take a little bit of time in the shower, but it's so worth it. I noticed a soft and silkiness to my hair that definitely wasn't present before. 

Trim: The trim is definitely crucial. As annoying as it is to-go every 6 weeks, it helps cut any split ends off so your hair can keep growing. The longer you go without trimming the more that has to come off the next time you go back. 

As simple as those tricks are, they make all the difference! I hope this post was helpful. If you start using these tricks or have in the past, send me a message and let me know what you think! 

If you want to know what curling iron I use, you can purchase it here. Yes, it's a little bit of an investment but I use it almost daily and my curls are exactly how I want them.
