If, like us, you enjoy scrutinizing the runways in search of new trends, then you probably already know that long hair is coming back in style. Indeed, the models who paraded the catwalks of the Spring/Summer 2015 presentations proudly wore their hair XXL-style... that is, extra extra long. We've put together our top tips for caring for and wearing your long hair this coming season!
Haircare for XXL hair
Cleansing: For long and voluminous locks like Blake Lively , opt for a range of haircare products that densifies the fiber of your hair to give lasting volume and strength to each strand.
Repair: At an average growing rate of 6" per year, by the time our hair grows to chest-length, the ends are already 2-3 years old. Repair this damage-prone hair by applying a reparitive hair mask once a week. Apply a generous amount to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair and let it rest for at least 5 minutes before rinsing.
Styling: To protect your hair from heat damage cause from blowdryers, curling and flat irons, make sure to always use heat protection. This helps your hair stay smooth and healthy in spite of regular exposure to heat.
Style tips for XXL hair
Tousled curls: A staple style for long hair, the wavy look is a must-try for Spring. To create the look, separate your hair in the center and spray it with heat protection. With a large barrel curling iron, curl several large sections of hair all around your head. When they've cooled, brush them through gently and spray with matte texture spray for a messy-chic finish!
Smooth and straight: Think high-gloss, frizz-free straight hair. Ready to be styled into wet look or a sleek ponytail, this hairstyle is ultra-glam without being overly formal. To get the look, spritz towel-dried hair with a styling/heat protection duo spray for straight hair and let it air dry. Then, straighten your hair with a ceramic flat iron. All set!
