How to Grow Your Hair Out | Sassoon Salon

anthropologie dress

We’ve all been there. You head to the salon to get the trendy-bob, chop it all off, and two days later — completely regret your actions! Whether you’re recovering from a bad cut, or hoping for luscious locks by your big day; waiting for your hair to grow can be a tedious, frustrating process. The average person’s hair grows about a quarter of an inch a month — and while there’s no overnight cure to long locks. (extensions aside)

 I’ve teamed up with Sassoon Salon Director, Julien Da Costa Faro (AKA: Hair guru) for expert advice on growing those locks out! He’s dishing on must-use products, Sassoon services & hair-growth tips (Trust me: he knows his stuff!) that actually work. Ready. Set. Grow.

BEST PRODUCTS TO — USE

Hair masks are great for hair growth! An intensive hair mask, such as Kerastase Masque UV Defense Active, will seal in moisture and promote growth.

CUT IT OUT

It is very important to have your ends trimmed every six to eight weeks to maintain the health and integrity of the hair. Some clients will skip a visit if they are looking to grow their hair but we recommend coming to see us every six weeks to prevent ends from splitting and further damaging the hair, as this will often result in us cutting more length.

HAIR GROWTH TIPS & NO-NO’S

  1. Use a wide comb on wet hair to avoid breakage.
  2. Avoid shampooing your hair every day as it can weaken your strands.
  3. Washing with hot water can dry locks out, so opt for a warm temperature instead. For an extra bonus, rinse your hair with cool water as it adds extra shine and locks in vital moisture.
  4. Stay away from expired products. Old heat protectant products can damage hair and cause breakage.
  5. Use the right tools. We recommend the GHD line of hairdryers, stylers, and curlers as they produce the right amount of heat so you won’t fry your hair.
  6. Leave your color to the professionals. Coloring your hair at home could result in major damage and split ends.

  • I use hair masks, wash my hair only 2-3 times a week, and use a wide tooth comb to aid my hair growth, but I didn’t know about warm showers over hot showers! Definitely going to try that out!

    Awesome tips! I like keeping my hair short but a lot of my friends want their hair to grow faster!

    • I wish I could pull the short hair thing off! I’m always jealous of people who look amazing both ways!

    • Haha! I used to be in the same boat! Scissors + hair growth don’t seem like they should belong in the same sentence! I honestly started doing this last year, and my hair grew SO much faster (it’s super long, I’m not lying!) LOL!

  • I love these tips! I always use a paddle brush on my wet hair, I guess that’s something I should stop doing.

    • I do the same! I’ve heard it’s so much healthier to use a comb, need to get out of my bad habits!

    Love these tips! My hair is SO long right now I need a trim, but I love my long hair and honestly can’t imagine myself with short hair!

  • Great tips! MY hair goes to my butt and I just chopped 3 inches off. I called it “my summer chop” and my hair dresser died laughing. Once you have it long and healthy, you are so scared to cut! Xoxo Mindy

  • Thinking of chopping my hair soon…. So I will definitely need these tips afterwards! Thanks for sharing!
