Now Trending: Ultra Long Locks

Hair trends come and go, and it seems that the pendulum has swung back from the ever popular bobs and lobs from seasons past. Start growing out your short(er) hair ladies, because long hair is back and it's hotter than ever for winter 2016. Celebrity It-girls who have lobbed and bobbed in recent years are veering into longer territory, and the liberal use of extensions in the fall/winter 2016 runway shows are a few confirmations that gorgeous, long hair is the accessory to rock this season.

Long hair is always sexy, but can everyone get it? If you feel forever stuck in the growing out phase, you’re not alone. The lengths your locks can reach are genetically programmed into your DNA, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still get on board with the winter’s hottest trend.  There are ways to encourage better quality hair growth, despite the genes you were born with. Read on for our tips to speed up the growing process.

Long hair starts with a healthy scalp, so pay as much attention to your scalp as you do the skin on your face and body. Using Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Omega Repair and Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner when you cleanse will keep your scalp hydrated and healthy. But shampooing too often can strip your scalp of the natural oils it needs. Try skipping a day or two in between regular shampoos and using Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME Biotin+ Volume and Vitality Luxe Fresh Up Dry Shampoo on your off days. Your product routine is just as important as your cleansing when it comes to maintaining a healthy scalp. Styling products can be very drying, as well as clog the hair follicles, so try to stay away from the base of your tresses when you use them.

Keeping the ends of your hair heathy and hydrated is just as important as caring for your scalp. Dry hair grows, but it’s brittle and prone to breakage, so hydrating your ends is also key in the growth process. Since the ends are so far from the nourishing root, weekly treatments with Schwarzkopf essence ULTIME Diamond Color and Radiance Illuminating Hair Mask is recommended if you’re trying to grow out your tresses. As for the age-old myth that cutting your hair will make it grow faster, there is no actual truth to it. However, trimming your hair every eight to ten weeks will maintain the overall quality of your mane. Split ends continue to split up the hair shaft, so although trimming may slow down the growing process, it will make for healthier hair in the long run when you finally reach your goal length.

Weather you choose a deep center part in an undone loose wave pattern, poker straight strands with a deep side part, a two-minute up-do or a red carpet ready style, your long hair is the only accessory you need to be totally chic this winter. Throw in some layers or bangs to complement your face shape and hair texture, and rock your long hair like you’re coming down the runway. And always make sure to have plenty of your favorite Schwarzkopf styliste ULTIME products in your beauty closet!
