Braids, Ponytails, and the Pursuit of Mermaid Hair

It’s time for a confession: I only cut my hair about once a year. Why? Well, back in 2009, I fell hard for the Beckham-bob, going as far as cutting my curly and thin hair to look more “posh” – and I still regret it. As you may know, growing your hair long is not an easy task, and I definitely have had bumps on the road to mermaid hair – like, for instance, putting my hair in a braid or ponytail while still wet.

You’ve been there too, I’m sure. You don’t have time to blow-dry, spray, and damage your hair into straight submission, so you just put it in a bun and go on with your day. Well, ladies, if you’re trying to grow your hair out, this is not the way to go about it.

Instead, when you get out of the shower, you should comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb while it’s still wet – you can even go as far as doing this while you are still rub-a-dub-dubbing in the tub. Now here comes the hard part: while getting ready, avoid putting your hair up at all costs.

Why? Well, wet hair is extremely prone to breakage, so if you put your hair up tight, it will more than likely cause some damage to your delicate strands by causing breakage or worse – pulling out your hair. Blow drying and ironing also stunts growth by causing even more follicle follies on your precious mane.

Your best bet? Go au natural, baby! Splash some leave-in conditioner in and air dry your locks. Although it’s best to avoid using too many products, go ahead and dab some on to keep the frizz away.
