Long Hair needs much more attention and care than short hair or normal length hair. Taking care of curly hair as well as long hair is of equal importance. Just keeping long hair clean by regular washing and drying it properly can itself be a tedious job.

The main problem with Long Hair is its breakage and split ends. Here are a few Long Hair Care Tips that will help you manage your long hair and keep it healthy and beautiful.

  • Do not sleep with tightly plaited hair or hair in a tight ponytail. The excessive stress can cause hair breakage and/or hair loss.

  • Make sure not to make it too tight whenever you are tying your hair in a plait or pony tail, or it could cause breakage and/or hair loss.

  • If your hair is braided or you have a ponytail, use a specially treated hair band or scrunchie. Scrunchie is more like a grip that holds your hair together without the tightness of an usual rubber band. This prevents breakage of your hair.

  • Even though you intend on growing your hair length further you should trim your hair once every 3 months. If this is not done split ends will appear which will cause your hair to break off and hence your hair will begin to lose its health and beauty.

  • Use of a brush to detangle your hair can cause it to break off easily. Use your fingers instead. Alternatively you can also use a wide-toothed comb to detabgle your hair. This too will prevent your hair from breaking off. While detangling, divide your hair into two different sections. First center part your hair, from your forehead, to the nape of your neck, then bring the hair forward and brush each section at a time thoroughly in a downward direction to ensure that there are no tangles. Remember to be gentle to your hair while detangling. If you pull down on your hair too hard it is likely to cause breakage.

  • Washing long hair should also be done carefully to avoid any hair breakage and hair loss. Detangle your dry hair before washing it. This can be done with the help of fingers or wide toothed comb in the manner discussed previously. Doing so will make it easier to dry and style as well as decrease the knots and tangles after washing your hair. Whether under a tap or a shower, let the water drip easily through your hair, and in the meantime you can smooth each section of your hair using your hands. While shampooing, do not be vigorous with your hair or turn it topsy turvy. Instead, apply shampoo on your scalp and work a top down approach to prevent post shampoo tangles and breakage.

  • Do not rub your hair with a towel to dry it. Instead simply blot the water out of your hair with a towel. This you can do by tying your hair with a towel for few minutes after wash, and the towel will soak the excess water from your hair. Later you can simply remove it avoiding any rubbing with the towel.

  • If you keep tossing and turning a lot during sleep, a cotton pillowcase can tend to break off your hair. Use a satin or silk pillowcase so that your hair easily slides off the pillowcase without getting caught. Alternatively you can loosely tie your hair in a ponytail with a specially treated rubber band or scrunchie, while sleeping.

  • While stepping out in the sun in summer or in the chill wind of winter, remember to tie a scarf on your hair to prevent it from environmental damages.

  • Brushing your hair helps spread the oils out across the length of your hair. Use long strokes starting from the roots of your hair to the bottom in a downward direction, when brushing. Stroke your hand over your hair after you are done with brushing your hair, to avoid of static.
Long hair is more versatile than short hair as they offer a variety of looks. By paying proper attention to your nutrition and the above-mentioned tips, you can make your long hair shine with all its health. Once your learn to keep your long hair manageable and healthy, you will surely love and enjoy it.
