The secret to long, healthy hair isn't always expensive products

You know these long shiny hair we see in commercials, we all know it's fake. But when we do see it real life, we just can't help but stop and stare. Because after all, there is still long, gorgeous hair in this world and it doesn't necessarily mean it's treated by Keratin or any of these new products. As a matter of fact, you don't even have to spend loads of money on shampoos and conditioners because it's so much simpler than that. Here are testemonials of several beautiful women with gorgeous hair that tell us the secret to their hair. And again, the secret to long, healthy hair isn't always expensive products. 




Cerine, 38, has worn her hair long for most of her life, letting it reach her waist multiple times throughout childhood and adulthood. She never ever dyes her hair and she only trims it about 3 times a years. She washes it 2 or 3 times a week and never goes to bed while it's wet

Her advice: 

Put serum on the ends and length of your, but try to keep product off your scalp as much as possible. And definitely be careful with any kind of heating tools. I’ve singed my hair with irons before, and sometimes smell it “burning” even from the blow dryer. I have a ton of hair so I haven’t had any major disasters, but I know fried tresses don’t grow very well.



Robin, 31, grows her hair too long that she sometimes feel it's heavy! She never dyed her hair as her mom strictly forbade it and later on she understood that it's for the best. She cuts it every 12-18 month and washes it 3-4 times a week

Her Advice: 

Leave it alone. Cut it when it starts to look ratty. Also, through most of my early and mid 20s, I ironed my hair religiously. Not anymore. But keep in mind, having beautiful mermaid hair isn’t always glamorous; it gets stuck in zippers, bag straps, hair ties, etc.



Courtney, 36, gets her grey streak colored every 5 weeks and would cut it very few times a year. She washes it only once a week.

Her Advice: 

I try to avoid tight ponytails because I’m afraid of breakage, so I’ll usually do a braid instead. The braid prevents tangles, especially when it’s windy or if you’re wearing a winter scarf or something with a hood. I use scrunchies when I’m hanging around the house because they are soft and don’t put pressure on hair strands. I need scrunchies to come back so I can wear them in public.



Maricar has never dyed her hair once because it requires so much attention afterwards and money. She trims it once or twice a year and washes it everyday. "I do as little as possible to my hair. I even avoid brushing my hair other than in the shower, and that’s using a shower brush and conditioner to detangle all at once. I also avoid blow-drying and heat-styling my hair unless it’s a special occasion."

Her Advice:

Limit how often you use heat tools or your blow dryer because the damage from using those can show up later on. Also, be careful about your hair clogging the drain when you shower. I have to deal with clogs pretty often. And watch out for hair accidents, like getting your hair in your bowl of soup or other foods or stuck in the car door!



Emma, 26, thinks that having a long hair is just easier, thus, she takes the easy way out. She dyes it professisonally twice year, wahses it everyday and doesn't trim it regularly.

Her advice:

Don’t bother with fancy shampoo, because it literally makes no difference. Oh, and argan oil everything.



The best way to help your hair grow or just be healthy is to be healthy yourself as whole,” she says. “When you take care of YOU, ALL of you is healthy. Including your hair.” Maryam, 24, says. She dyes her hair and trims it every 3-4 months

Her advice:

Water. Drink all the water.
