“Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long hair.” Well, alrighty then! For fairytale tresses, here’s a few quick haircare and styling tips to embrace those long locks. (We just don’t recommend letting anyone trying to climb up them!)

How to get healthy-looking long hair

There are all kinds of extensions available on the market. However the best way to get long, healthy-looking hair is to do it the natural way: by letting it grow. Every couple of months, make sure you ask your hair stylist for a quick trim in order to avoid split, straggly ends which run the risk of breaking off and giving you uneven lengths.

The Pro Fiber haircare range from L’OrĂ©al Professionnel is ideal for reinforcing your hair’s strength and is available in different formulations depending on your specific needs.

Long hair, how to wear

Long-haired maidens have a multitude of options when it comes to styling their hair, but wearing it out and loose is our current favourite look. We love long hair when it’s glossy and natural-looking, styled into a middle part and left to do its thing. Adding a hint of colour to the ends can also be really striking as it captures the light and showcases your long locks.

A few drops of hair oil on the lengths and ends is a great way to enhance the shimmer while also nourishing the hair. For a more matte finish (one of this season’s favourite hair trends), apply a dry shampoo or mattifying powder to dry hair and brush in using a soft-bristled or paddle brush.

There’s never been a better time to have long hair!
