Many men with curly hair often end up asking how to grow curly hair long.
The answer may not always be straightforward, but the fact is that, regardless of your curly hair type, you can grow an awesome head of long curls and look great at the same time. Here is how.
How to Grow Curly Hair Long?
The first rule to growing curly long hair is to skip haircuts until you get your desired length. You may get a quick trim to avoid split ends, but you don’t intend to get any styles until your hair reaches the desired length.
Reduce Your Frequency of Shampooing
If you have been shampooing your hair daily, reduce the frequency to every alternate day, eventually lowering it to once a week. Natural oils from the scalp helps keep your curls nourished so you can grow your curly hair long.
Condition, Condition and Condition
Curly hair is naturally dry and needs a lot of moisture. Provide moisture through natural oils or conditioners that can nourish your hair from the inside.
Minimize the Use of Styling Products
It is common for men with curly hair to depend heavily on styling products. While styling products may help you manage your hair, they can leave a buildup on your hair that needs to be removed using shampoo. But since you need to keep your shampooing frequency to a minimum, make sure you reduce your use of styling products.
By following these easy steps, you can grow your curly hair long and ensure healthy and attractive locks.
