I don't understand how people don't brush their hair? Even if you can 'get away with' not doing it (which i don't understand, because i always think brushed hair looks smoother and silkier) surely it's terrible for your scalp?! Meh.

Anyway, my top tips for keeping long hair luscious;

1.) don't color it. I used to color my hair and since i've stopped it is a billion times silkier and healthier. Plus it's kind of nice just having my natural hair color, i think it matches my skin and eyes better than a 'nicer' color from a bottle

2.) BRUSH YOUR HAIR. especially before you shower, otherwise the shampoo and conditioner don't distribute as evenly

3.) Avoid heat styling as much as possible. Try to let your hair dry naturally, or do what i often do and wash your hair as soon as you wake up, then do all your little bits and bobs (breakfast, checking emails, picking out clothes, packing bag etc) BEFORE blow drying you hair, that way it's 80% dry and you can just blast it for a couple of minutes

4.) Agreed with not washing everyday, it really makes a huge difference. dry shampoo and yummy smelling leave-in conditioner help make you feel 'fresh' between washes

^ well maybe for straight hair, but my hair is long and curly and would turn into a frizzy mess if I brushed it. I only ever brush my hair when I wash it (once or twice a week)

I agree brushing is important for your scalp so I should do it more often. I have straight hair but it doesn't tangle and whenever I brush it my ends get very dry and static-y so I don't like to do it. It's alright to do so before a shower though

you should try using a different hair brush. I've got straight hair as well and went through a phase when every time i brushed my hair the ends got SOO static, but i switched hair brushes and it was fine. Another tip i've come across for dealing with that is to finely mist your brush with a non-sticky hairspray before brushing it; keeps the fly-aways at bay

I have waist-length hair, and I agree w/ not overwashing, detangler, braiding, etc.

Also: hot oil treatment!!! I was suffering from hard water tangles, but this, plus lemon rinse, really saved me.

Oil+heat, shampoo/condition/lemon rinse (just a few teaspoonfuls diluted in a litre of water) towel dry, lightly oil, dry.
I'm sure there are many good ways to do the hot oil, but I just blowdried my hair after applying oil. My hair has been the smoothest in months.
I used grapeseed; but my cousin swears by almond or coconut.
The Kerastase masque works really well for long hair, but I didnt like the silicone in it.

x use a mild schampoo if you wash your hair every day. a good example: kerastase bain riche or kerastase bain volumactive (i wash my hair _every_ day so i know what im talking about)
x a good comb is a must!

carmen kass: aussie 3 minute miracle reconstructor!
