Growing out a style can seem like a real pain, but just remember that, before you know it, your hair will be a blank canvas again – ready to go wherever your creative flair takes you next. The spring is the perfect time to start growing out your style, because it means that, by summer, you should be past those awkward in-between stages and have a workable style that you don’t want to cover up with a sunhat. Whether you’re growing out your fringe or your lob, or want to go back to your natural colour, here are a few tips to help you do so.
Don’t give up!
It can be so tempting to go back on your decision when you’re bored of growing out your hair, simply because it’s the quickest way to make your hair look awesome again. But, don’t give up! You just need to put up with a month or so of uncooperative, imperfect hair, and then you’ll be through the worst and ready to start planning for your gorgeous new style. You will thank yourself when you’re twirling your lovely long locks through your fingers!
Trim your ends regularly
When you’re trying to grow out your hair, it may seem counterintuitive to keep trimming the ends, but it’s actually really important for speeding up the process. Trimming the ends of your hair regularly keeps them in good condition, which helps your locks grow. Split ends, on the other hand, stunt your hair’s growth. Your hair stylist will be able to advise you on how frequently you should be coming back for a trim while you’re growing out your style.
Be flexible with your style
Whatever hairstyle you’re trying to grow out, you’re going to have some in-between phases where you’ll need to find ways to manage your hair. Simple tricks like tucking your hair behind your ears, sweeping your fringe to the side or pinning up your hair can be life-savers when you’re growing out your hair. If you usually wear hair accessories, then a cute bandana could be a perfect cover-up for locks that aren’t 100 per cent how you want them.
As your hair gets longer, it needs to be conditioned regularly to ensure that damage is kept to a minimum. Make sure the ends are conditioned when you wash your hair, and perhaps treat your locks to a deep conditioning mask every couple of weeks. You can also avoid breakage through your general haircare routine – for example, dabbing (not rubbing) your hair with a towel to dry it, and only using a brush on your hair once it’s dry.
