Various bob haircuts have been trending all over the map but as we head into fall and winter, clients may be looking to add a little length to their look. Whether they are growing their hair or transitioning to extensions, when it comes to achieving longer hair — the answer might be in the products you’re using. 

Tips for Keeping Long Hair Healthy

Whether you’re looking to grow your hair long or simply take care of your lengths, hair care is the number one way to ensure both. Everything from brushing to environmental stress and heat styling can wreak havoc on strands. For best results, start a healthy routine for your hair before visible signs of damage or dryness show. To do so, finding products that promote moisture within the hair should be your first step. 

Enhancing moisture correlates to length because it helps hair become more elastic and less prone to breakage and damage.

How To Promote Hair Growth

Everything from diet to stress can impact hair growth. It can be a great idea to work in new routines with targeted treatments, gua sha, or massage to help stimulate the scalp and promote new growth. In addition, choosing products that improve the health of your hair and don’t contain ingredients that hinder it is essential. Look for formulas that are free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates. These are better for your hair and body and are traditionally safe for color-treated, keratin-treated, chemically-processed, and extension-filled hair. 

Consider Using Extensions as a Hair Filler

While extensions have always been known for their ability to extend length, they are now becoming popular among celebrities using them as “hair filler” for short lengths like lobs and bobs. Chris Appleton, the celebrity stylist behind the most iconic hair looks for Kim Kardashian, and Jlo often uses extensions to create a bouncy bob look. Used as a filler - extensions can fill in sparse areas of the hair for a fuller look. 

When using hair extensions, use hair products that won’t damage the wefts and help promote healthy hair.

Product suggestions:
