Retaining Length…Yes We Can!
I listen to so many people complain about their hair not growing. I hear them say, “My hair just won’t grow." Another one I hear a lot is, “My hair has been the same length forever." Some of us just accept this as "just the way it is". Some of us think that only certain people are going to be blessed with long tresses and the rest of us have to suffer through life with hair that just won’t grow. Well, I’m here to tell you that you can grow your own hair to long lengths with the right hair care products and a great hair regime. The first step is coming to the understanding that your hair DOES grow and acknowledging that there is a problem with your current hair regime. I know that some of us are in deep denial about our hair but realizing this fact is very important. Hair grows at the same rate for almost everyone. The rate is 1/4th to ½ inch per month. That goes for all hair types and all nationalities. If this is true, we should all be growing our hair about 6 inches per year right? Why is it that some of us have the same hair length for years and years? If your hair is the same length and it has been 6 months or more, you have to tweak your hair care regime. Yes, your hair is growing but it is breaking at the same rate. You have evidence of hair growth because you need relaxer and or braid touchups. Not to be redundant but let us do the math. If your hair grows ½ inch per month and your hair is breaking off at the rate of ½ inch per month………it will amount to –ZERO- growth for that month. No length retention equals one month of growth down the drain. The key is to hang on to that ½ inch per month! Why might your hair be breaking at the same rate in which it is growing? It could be due to numerous reasons such as parched - damaged- brittle ends (which break easily), improper use of relaxers, split ends, overuse of heat, overuse of permanent color / henna or a moisture / protein imbalance.

Tying The Knot
Simple and striking are two ways to describe the tightly wound knots seen on the runway. As hairstylist Guido explained of his low chignon at Ralph Lauren, "It's a very chic, put-together style...This look goes along with what I typically think we create in New York in that it's very American and wearable..." To master your twist, blow-dry hair straight, create a clean center part if wanted, and secure hair into a firm ponytail at the nape, spritzing with shine mist. From there, you can wrap the tail into any number of looks—a loop with the ends pointing up or tucked under, a round ballet bun, or the classic double knot—sealed with a shot of anti-frizz spray.

Outré hairstyles are fun to look at but don't necessarily translate well off the runway when you don’t have a team of stylists at the ready. This season, there was no question that wearable looks had a major presence. That's not to say creativity wasn't on full display—we saw new ways to wear your ponytail (think low and wide), braid your braid (try a crisscross direction), slick your part and tie a knot (tight!). And perhaps the most captivating trend this season? Hair accessories inspired by everything from blossoming flowers to sporty bands to beekeeper's headpieces, for when you want to just slip something on and make a statement. Plus, great tips for healthy hair and the latest spring fashion.
