Long hairstyles for men are trending like crazy right now, and in order for your hair to reach Johnny Depp levels of shoulder-skimming handsomeness, you need to keep it strong and healthy, as well as looking good. To help you figure out how to do just that, we have all the essential haircare tips you need to achieve the long locks of your dreams.
One of the most important things you can do to keep your hair in at the top of its game is to condition it. As a rule, use conditioner after shampooing and make time for the occasional hair mask to replenish lost nutrients and moisture. This will keep the strands strong and help to prevent breakage and split ends.
If your hair is naturally quite oily, only condition twice a week and do the mask on a monthly basis.
Keep it trim
During the growing out process, regular trims are essential for maintaining shape and avoiding any awkward angles. Once you hit your desired length, keeping your hair trimmed will remove damaged ends and keep your mane looking cared for, as opposed to ragged and unkempt.
Experiment with products
As your hair gets longer, you might find that it reacts differently when styled with different hair products. This all depends on how thick it is, and the natural texture, but a little trial and error is the best way to figure out what works for you.
