Did you know about 70% of women in NZ have shouder length or longer hair?
I'm one of them. I have a hair cycle that lasts around 2 years. I'll chop my hair into a lob, live with it for a while and then grow it out, determined to have long and strong hair. And then somewhere between my shoulder blades and my bra strap, I chop it back into a lob again.
Now, whenver I set myself to growing my hair, someone without fail will utter the ultimate hair lie. I bet you've heard it before, maybe you even believe it.
"If you want long and strong hair be sure to get regular trims, it'll keep your hair healthy and help it to grow."
Here's the truth. Your hair is pretty much dead from the root down. Why would removing some of the dead part encourage the live root to grow? It makes no sense right? As for regular trims keeping it healthy? Well...
Regular trims will remove split ends making your hair look healthy and lay flat, but it won't have any impact on the rate of growth or the overall condition of your hair.
In other words, if you have dry or damaged hair before a trim...it'll still be dry or damaged after a trim. If you want long, strong and healthy hair, you do not have to reach for the scissors.
Don't cut - choose repair!
We're putting the first ever Schwarzkopf Extra Care range dedicated speciﬁcally to long hair to the test.
The new Schwarzkopf Extra Care Supreme Length range contains Micro Repair Lipids & Peony Essence to gently cleanse oily roots and repair damaged lengths. The formula helps reduce and prevent split ends too.
We need 20 reviewers to each use and review, the Supreme Length Shampoo, Conditioner and Intensive Mask. Pretty cool right?
