Models take biotin and Viviscal for more luscious hair like it’s their job. And it kind of is. And it kind of works. Certain supplements really do promote hair growth, and the B vitamin biotin is one of my favorites. You would have to take 5,000 micrograms (some pills contain that amount) a day for about three to six months before you’d notice a difference.
Less is more
It doesn’t take that much effort to make all that hair look good. In fact, you can get away with blow-drying just your volumizer-coated roots as long as you mist the ends with a texturizing spray, such as Sally Hershberger Glam Waves.
Prevent split ends in your sleep
Satin and 600-thread-count Egyptian-cotton pillowcases create less friction than ordinary cotton ones, so your hair will be less likely to tangle or break when you toss and turn. Another option: Tie your hair into a loose loop on the very top of your head with a scarf or scrunchie.
Give it a boosT
Long hair is heavy. Without a volumizer, the roots will fall flat. After every shampoo, massage an apricot-size dollop of lightweight mousse (we likePaul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydrocream Whip) into the roots while they’re damp to give hair some lift without turning it crunchy even if your hair is thick and you’ve never needed to use a volumizer before.
Sorry, but when you’ve got a ton of hair, a big knot isn’t proportional to your face. The ideal spot for a bun or chignon is at the nape of your neck anything in between there and the crown looks matronly.
Dry shampoo and dry conditioner
Yes, dry conditioner is a thing and you’ll be happy that you know about it on day three of a blowout. Your ends start to look dry right around the same time your roots get oily. Spritz a dry conditioner, like Oribe Soft Dry Conditioner Spray, over your length but never the crown, and focus on the ends to make them shiny and soft.
As for dry shampoo, it’s a lot easier on hair than cleaning the old-school way, which strips away natural oils along with dirt. Mist it on your roots and massage it into your hair with your fingertips. Then do the same thing on the pieces around your face. Long hair is so heavy that it gets weighed down easily, and the dry shampoo will also add volume.
Care for your scals
Scalp treatments may sound clinical (and a little gross), but massaging a serum (like Kérastase Initialiste) or even a shampoo (try Clear Scalp & Hair Therapy) that contains essential oils, such as avocado and coconut, into your roots a few times a week will nourish the scalp, creating the right foundation for healthier, stronger hair with less breakage.
