While extensions will get you there much quicker, you can actually make small changes in your routine for serious results. Just know there’s not one magic solution to adding on 3+ inches overnight.
From the brush you use to how you’re protecting your hair while you sleep, read on for some expert tips to give your hair length and strength.
Having your longest and healthiest hair is as much about what you put into your body as it is what you put on your hair. Up the protein in your diet with beans, whole grains, fish, and nuts to feed your hair from the inside out, in essence. Foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins A, C, and E, iron, and zinc could give your hair a boost of health and strength.
A clean scalp is important for hair growth, but your strands’ natural sebum also plays a vital role when it comes to repair and hydration. We suggest trading out your daily shampoo for a conditioner every other wash.

Fact: Trimming your hair doesn’t keep it from growing long. It actually helps! Regular trims keep split ends and breakage at bay. The damage that ultimately leads to bigger cuts each time you visit the salon. Use the expert advice of your stylist to figure out how often you need to trim. We recommend every 6 – 8 weeks.
Though we live for an amazing blowout, we cannot stress the importance of turning down the heat when it comes to maintaining healthy hair. That means using heat protectant like our Repair Spray every time you straighten your hair, keeping the temperature on your blow dryer and flat iron low, and doing twists, braids, and pin curls overnight to keep the volume of your blowout without using heat.
When our parents stressed the importance of taking our vitamins, they were truly doing us a service. Check with your doctor to see if “hair, skin, and nails” vitamins are right for you. They are usually brimming with vitamins B, C, and biotin which helps boost your hair health and your skin’s radiance simultaneously.
