“My hair just won’t grow past this length.”
If you’ve ever uttered this phrase, it may be time to take a look at your ends. All hair grows but not all hair retains length. If your goal is to grow long, gorgeous hair, then it is imperative that you give your ends extra TLC.
The ends of our hair are the oldest and the most fragile. If you have curly or damaged hair, you are even more likely to experience breakage, so here’s what you can do about it.
You’re Too Rough
I cannot say this enough. Rushing is not your friend, especially when washing your hair. You can end up yanking more hair out by ripping your hands or a comb through your hair if you rush your washday.
Take the time to think about what you are doing when handling your hair or you will find tons of strands your hands when you’re done.
YOUR HAIR IS DRY
Keeping your hair moisturized minimizes breakage since it won’t be dry and brittle.
The best moisturizer is water so make sure your moisturizers and conditioners are water-based (water is the first ingredient). To ensure your hair is being moisturized properly, pay particular attention to the ends of your hair when applying your products. Yes, our hair grows from the roots but the roots are much stronger than the ends so the ends need more TLC to combat breakage.
