5 Ways to Help Grow Out Your Hair

Growing your hair out. I think it’s safe to say that most girls have gone through this dreadful process at least once in their lives. You get an adorable pixie or short bob and everything is all fine and dandy until you decide that once again want long flowing locks.

The good news for you is I am a pro when it comes to going from short to long, as I have done it numerous times, and I’m going to tell you how you can do it without going bored out of your mind!

  1. Play with different styles.

While your hair is growing, it can get really boring looking at the exact same shape every single day. By playing with different braids, ponytails, buns, and twists, you’ll be able to bring your creative side out and help pass the time.

Tired of having dishwater brown hair? Add some light pieces! Feel like you need more depth? Richen up that color!  If you’re a blonde already and you’re feeling bold, why not put a temporary vivid color over the top? With color you feel good about, it will make having that in-between length hair so much better. Just make sure not to make too drastic of a color choice that you would want to change again soon. Coloring your hair too much can result in enough damage that you’ll end up having to cut what you just grew!


3. Add bangs.

This one has been a life saver for me on more than one occasion. For those of you that are obsessed with cutting your hair but are desperately trying not to touch the length or again if you’re just bored out of your mind, bangs give a completely different look to any style. And the best part is you can decide how aggressive you want to be with them. Long, short, heavy, blunt, piecey, there are so many options!









4. Have an inspiration board.

This is key for those moments you’re weak. Your friend just got a really cute cut, or your favorite celebrity just chopped her hair. It’s hair and it grows. I’m not going to stop you if you want to change your mind. BUT if you’re really trying to commit yourself, having a board to refer to just might be the reminder you need that long braids, ponys, and beachy waves can soon be yours.


5. Play with your makeup and wardrobe.

One of my favorite things about hair is that by changing it, you can completely transform your look. So what do you do when you can’t change it? Switch up your makeup and your clothes. Wearing fun mascara or a bold lip can more than distract from blah hair! Clothing too! Go more bold with your style. Try a new look you’ve been dying try. You’ll be surprised that by making that extra effort to dress up your face and wardrobe, your hair is ok taking the backseat for the moment.

Bang Bang

imageimageimageimageimageimageI had a moment with my hair the other morning. It wasn’t a good moment. I know that I’m not the only one this has happened to!

As you have most likely picked up on, my hair has been many colors…I mean many. I’ve managed to get away with it by making sure I have frequent trims and by doing lots of conditioning treatments. I really baby my hair. However, over the weekend, a stylist here on the island, did not realize the condition of my hair and sadly fried my ends as I was being prepped for a film that was shot here.

The next morning I knew I had 2 options: 1. Give myself a pixie cut, or 2. Give myself bangs and layers. I obviously opted for 2, as I so long to have flowing tresses again!

The good news is my bangs should grow out gracefully and the rest of my hair fits very nicely into a ponytail (which I plan on wearing until my hair grows enough to be fixed further!). What do you think of my bangs? Did I do a good job salvaging my hair? Let me know in the comments below!
