Getting your hair cut can be a process, whether it’s positive or negative we’ve all had an accidental ‘bad’ hair cut. Or furthermore, a hair cut that ended up being much shorter than we had originally anticipated. Of course we totally understand (and we’ve been there) when you have a hair cut that turns up too short, and you’re left trying to figure out how to deal with it until it begins to grow out. Managing a too short hair cut doesn’t have to be as bad as you may think – we promise! To help you out, we’re sharing some of our favorite tips.
We realize this is much easier said than done, but if you end up with too short of a hair cut it really is important to take a few deep breaths and not completely panic about it. We get it, it can be a shock and something you weren’t completely prepared for but remember it is hair and it WILL grow back out. In addition, make sure that you communicate with your hair stylist to let them know it wasn’t the length you were expecting or going for. Communicating with your hair stylist will help to ensure you don’t run into this problem again in the future. In addition, your stylist may be able to give you some tips on how to style your too short hair until it begins to grow out.
Try Not to Over Heat
What does heat have to do with too short hair? Well, when your hair is shorter than you wanted, you’re obviously going to want it to grow out as soon as possible – but to encourage your hair to grow out more quickly and healthy you’re going to want to make sure you’re taking care of your hair as best as you can. This means that cutting back on the amount you’re using heat on your hair is important. We’re not saying you can’t use heat at all, but try not to over style your hair with heat. Often times, when we’re not happy with our hair and the cut we over compensate by applying more heat than we should. Resist the urge and make sure you’re giving your hair a break from heat as often as possible.
Use Quality Hair Care Products
Just like we said above, you’re probably going to want your hair to grow out as quickly as possible. Another way to help assist with that is to make sure that you’re using quality hair care products that are going to keep your hair healthy and happy. Adding in a quality hair mask on a daily basis can help give your hair an extra boost of hydration and moisture, promoting growth much more. In addition, you may want to add in a hair growth supplement – any little bit helps!
Try Different Hair Styles
Of course, we can’t forget to mention that even if you’re not thrilled with your hair’s length it’s important to work WITH it. Try out different hair styles and experiment – you may be surprised at the different options you have once you get over the initial shock.
