Tips for Getting Through the Awkward Stages of Growing Out Your Hair

July 30, 2022

With all of the long hairstyle trends that have been cropping up lately, you may be thinking about growing your hair out if it is currently on the shorter side. But the one thing that always puts people off from growing out their hair is the awkward stages between short and long where it becomes difficult to style, and it doesn’t seem to want to behave. With a few expert tips from the pros, you won’t need to worry about those stages anymore. Our expert stylists know all the tips and tricks to keep your hair looking great at every stage of growth, and we’re going to share three of their tips with you now so that you can confidently grow your hair out to any length that you want.

Get Regular Haircuts – It may seem a bit counterintuitive for you to cut your hair when you’re trying to grow it longer, but it cannot only help keep it manageable but also help you reach your desired length faster. We’re not talking about removing several inches of hair. We’re just talking about a trim about every six to eight weeks. Hair grows at different rates on different areas of your head, so getting regular trims will help keep everything even instead of looking shaggy, and we all know that we need to trim our hair to keep split ends at bay. If you neglect your haircut schedule and your ends become damaged they will start to break off, sometimes at a faster rate than what your hair is growing. You may think your hair is not growing when it actually is. This is often the case when people claim that their hair has stopped growing.

Deep Conditioning Treatments – Dry and damaged hair are brittle and more prone to breakage. It’s going to make it difficult to reach your goals when you’re growing out your mane if it’s constantly breaking off. So to get your hair to the length that you want it’s important to keep it strong and healthy. This is where deep conditioning treatments come in. Whether it is a weekly salon conditioning treatment or an at-home hydrating hair mask like Eufora International Moisture Masque or Unite 7 Seconds Masque, these intensive treatments will keep your strands well moisturized and strengthened to prevent breakage and keep them in great condition as they grow. The healthier and stronger your hair is the faster it will grow, and the faster that it grows the less time it will spend in those tricky stages.

Get Extensions – For those awkward stages when your hair is particularly hard to style, hair extensions offer the perfect solution. They can be customized to give you exactly the length you want and need to get you through those difficult times without wanting to give up. You can even extend your tresses all the way out to your desired length so that you can enjoy the benefits of long hair while waiting for your own strands to catch up. Today’s hair extensions blend flawlessly into your natural hair, so no one will even know that you have them. They’ll only notice your beautiful long locks.
