5 LENGTH RETENTION TIPS FOR NATURAL HAIR

Length retention: it sounds simple, but it can be anything but! Whether you’ve finally grown out your hair to a length you love, or you’ve noticed your strands getting shorter with each trim, it can be difficult to retain the length you want. Here, we’ll discuss a few quick length retention tips.

Tip #1 – Get Trimmed

It may seem counterintuitive, but getting your hair trimmed on a schedule can make a huge difference in your ability to retain your hair length. When ends get dry or damaged, they can break or split, making for shorter strands. Getting a trim every 3-4 months keeps ends healthy, meaning less breakage and more length.

Tip #2 – Get a Protective Style

While we all love a good wash-and-go, it leaves your hair vulnerable to damage from the elements. Opting for a protective style can help keep your strands from breaking which, in turn, keeps your length. Plus, they look gorgeous.

Tip #3 – Stimulate Your Scalp

New growth comes from the scalp, so if you want to retain your hair’s length, start there. Our Pantene Gold Series New Lengths Scalp Revitalizing Treatment, crafted by Black scientists, hydrates to keep hair healthy and moisturized.

Tip #4 – Go On the Defensive

If you’re losing length retention due to breakage, protect your strands with a serum designed for natural hair. New Lengths Anti-Breakage Defense Serum protects hair from damage, reduces breakage, and enables length retention. What’s not to love about that?

Tip #5 –Treat Yourself… and Your Strands

Curls and coils are naturally more delicate than straight or wavy strands because it takes longer for oil to travel from our scalps to ends. Treat your hair to deep conditioning hair masks, swap your pillowcase for one made of silk, and make sure you’re getting the vitamins and minerals you need. It’ll make a difference!
