Thinking about growing out your tapered cut? Here are five things that you should know before switching up your look.
Figure out what your new hair care regimen will be.
As with any new look that you try, you’ll want to make sure that you are prepared with the right products. Growing your hair out from a tapered cut can require you to switch up your combinations due to the discovery of new or multiple textures in your hair. Regardless though, you’ll want to ensure that you are using the right shampoo, conditioner, and moisturizer for your growing tresses. The Coconut Crème Collection is a great place to start.
Be prepared for frustrating moments.
Growing out your tapered cut can bring a lot of frustrating moments. From feeling as if your hair is not growing fast enough to noticing the different textures as it’s growing out, there will be plenty of times that you feel like you just want to go get that cut. Even when you have those thoughts though, hold tight. There’s always a light at the end of the tunnel.
Have some styles to reference to when times get hard.
When growing out your cut, encountering moments of frustration is inevitable. But, it’s for those specific moments that you should have a few styles to reference so that you won’t revert to keeping your short cut. Whether on Pinterest, Instagram or on a vision board, be sure to have some inspiration to look to when you need it.
Keep up with your trims.
Although you’ll want to stray away from getting a full out cut, you will want to continue with your regular trims. By doing this, you’ll eliminate split ends and keep breakage at bay, which will promote hair growth.
Opt for a protective style.
If you’re tired of the awkward stage of growing out your tapered cut or even if you just want a new look, opting for a protective style is always a good choice. From box braids to weaves or wigs, there are plenty of protective styles that can help you through growing out your cut. While your hair is in a protective style though, be sure to keep it moisturized. Our Half & Half — Hydrating Silkening Hair Milk is a good choice.
