Let's jump in by keeping this hair care principle in front of mind when it comes to achieving stronger longer healthier hair:
Minimal hair breakage = MMAXimum hair length retention
To maximize hair length, focus on minimizing hair breakage. Here are 7 ways to minimize hair breakage and products from the Olive Crown Collection to assist you in creating your most effective anti-breakage haircare routine for longer stronger healthier hair.
1. Start from a clean slate
To establish and commit to a healthy hair care routine that minimizes breakage and maximizes hair length, it's crucial to start on a clean slate. Getting rid of any dead ends or hair damage allows you to build your anti-breakage routine on a solid foundation. When was the last time you checked for dead/split ends?
Don't be afraid go to a licensed hair stylist in your area that has a reputation for properly caring for kinky, curly and/or coily hair. After careful consideration, choose a stylist and commit to a trim schedule that works for you. If you are experiencing heavy hair breakage, tangling or knots it's time for a trim.
*NOTE: Refusing to let go of dead/split ends out of fear of initially losing length will not produce the result of retaining increased healthy hair length. The dead ends will continue to split up the hair shaft and eventually snap off! Trust me sis if you need it, GO GET THAT TRIM!
*BONUS: The Hydrating Hair Mask and Hair Strengthening Growth & Repair Oil are products designed to strengthen hair and prevent split ends, so with consistent usage and proper care you will notice you won't need much trimmed of the next time around!
2. Daily manipulation
Preventing hair breakage has a lot to do with how you treat your hair on a daily basis. The first thing to know is what type of hair you have. Is it thin, fine, thick, or coarse? Does your hair dry out quickly or slowly? Work with your hair according to your specific needs.
The key to preventing hair breakage for daily manipulation is to keep the hair hydrated. Don't try to brush or comb hair that feels dry and brittle. Moisten hair with water, Leave-in Conditioner, Extreme Curl Defining Creme and seal in moisture with Hair Strengthening Growth & Repair Oil. This allows the hair strands to become pliable enough to withstand manipulation without breakage.
3. Protective Styling
If you want to grow (& keep!) long hair protective styling is a great way to give your hair a rest from excessive manipulation and promote MMAXimum hair length retention. Key benefits of protective styling:
- Prevents hair breakage caused by excessive manipulation
- Keeps hair moisturized longer
- Low maintenance
- Protects ends to prevent damage and splitting
4. Shampooing and Conditioning
How does one eat an elephant? One bite at a time, right? Divide hair into smaller sections and shampoo each section INDIVIDUALLY! Condition hair the same way.
This also allows the conditioner or hair mask to be evenly distributed to all hair strands for maximum conditioning and anti-breakage benefits. Establish a deep conditioning routine with The Olive Crown Collection Hydrating Hair Mask and plan to use it every 7-10 days. The ingredients are made to moisturize hair from the inside out also strengthening the hair strands from the inside out.
The Rosemary Mint Hydrating Shampoo cleanses and hydrates hair strands without drying out the hair resulting in breakage prone hair strands.
Proper detangling practices are essential to preventing hair breakage. It's a good habit to never detangle hair unless it is saturated with a detangling aid. The Olive Crown Collection Leave-in Detangling Spray is designed to aid in hair hydration anti-breakage detangling.
Divide hair in sections and spray on product. Start first by delicately finger detangling. Starting at the ends of the hair and working your way up to the roots, use a wide tooth brush or comb through strands until the brush/comb glides through with out snagging.
6. Direct Heat Usage
A direct heat source is a blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron, straightening comb or any other heat styling tool that is placed directly on to the hair strands in styling. An effective anti-breakage rule of thumb is to avoid daily direct heat styling tools. Frequent use of direct heat will cause damage to the hair shaft leaving the hair strands dry, damaged, lifeless and extremely prone to breakage.
7. Indirect Heat Usage
An indirect heat source is a bonnet dryer, hooded dryer and steamers that dry the hair without a tool directly making contact with the hair strands. Using indirect heat to style and stretch the curl pattern is an effective way to prevent damage to the hair strands that lead to breakage. Using an indirect heat source to stretch out tight curls or coils also makes hair manipulation more convenient and reduces daily detangling time.
