But first… a few tips on protecting your long hair.

How to Care for Your Long Hair

Beware of Heat Damage

If you are using any type of hot tool, you need to take care not to damage your hair.

Use a heat protector spray and try to keep the temp on your tool as low as you can for your hair type (but high enough that it still works).

Avoid Tight Hair Ties

Make sure your hair ties aren’t too tight. You can snap your hair with a hairband that is too snug or put too much pressure on the roots.

Choosing a spiral hair tie or a scrunchie can help minimize any damage due to hair ties.

You can also mix up how/where you use hair ties.
If you do a high ponytail one day, the next day do a low pony.

Using other techniques for your hair like braiding or twists can greatly lessen hair breakage too!

Use a Good Brush

You want to smooth your hair and distribute the natural oils, not yank your way through knots and break your hair.

Using a natural bristle brush, like a boars hair brush, will help you minimize friction and keep your hair silky smooth. A wet brush is also a great choice and a fan favorite.

Hydrate Your Hair Regularly

The longer your hair, the more moisture you need distributed to the ends.

Either find a good hair mask for using in the shower or a hair oil you can add when your hair is towel dry or wet.

Train Your Hair to Go Longer Between Washes

The more you wash your hair the more oils your scalp will produce. You may feel like your hair is oily enough to get washed every day, but you are likely creating an environment for your hair that is too dry!

You can train your hair to go longer between washes by washing it every other day for a few weeks instead of every day. Use dry shampoo on the in between days!

This can also help how long it takes you to get ready in the morning. If you wash and style your hair on day 1, often with some dry shampoo and few touch ups you can make this base style work for a few more days!


If you are in a hurry, freshly showered, and don’t have time to dry your hair make sure you check out our post dedicated to styling wet hair!

We have tips on caring your for wet hair (did you know wet hair is much weaker than dry hair?) and styling it in braids, twists, buns, etc.! Something for everyone!
