Hi, I'm Amelia and I'm here to talk to you about some tips on growing your hair. First of all, when you're trying to grow your hair out, you still want to get it trimmed, however, you're going to want to let those trims go a lot longer, so you're going to go a lot longer in between trims. I don't recommend an every six week trim. Your hair grows about a half inch a month, so that means if you go every month and get a half inch taken off, it's never going to grow. But if you go, let's say, twelve weeks, and you go in and have a quarter of an inch taken off, or just the dead ends, your hair is going to grow a lot quicker. Whenever my client's are trying to grow their hair out, I always try to make sure that the back is what I keep short. So I keep this short until the sides start to fill in. Once those sides fill in, which do take, does take a lot longer than the back, then we start letting the back fill in. Also, whenever you're trying to grow out layers, same thing, you're going to want to keep that perimeter length fairly stationary and just let this continue to grow out. Just remember that with length is the enemy of volume. So you're not going to have a lot of big hair if you've got long hair. The two just don't go together. You're also going to want to make sure that you use a really good shampoo and conditioner that's going to keep your hair healthy, so when you do use styling products, or styling tools I should say, it's going to keep the hair healthy and shiny. Another thing is when ever a coloring or doing anything like that, you're just going to really want to make sure that you keep in to consideration that this hair that grows down here is still on your head, it's going to have been on your head for probably about two or three years, so it's going to be a lot dryer. So take in to consideration when ever you're choosing your coloring techniques what you're going to be, how long you're hair is going to be, because if you're hair is really long and blonde, you'll find that eventually this hair down here is going to have a lot of breakage and a lot of damage, so you might want to take your hair in the back maybe a little bit darker than around your face. And with those tips and techniques, you can also grow your hair out nice, long and healthy.
