Growing Out A Pixie Cut

Top Tips For Growing Out A Pixie Cut

Growing out a pixie cut is without a doubt one of the most frustrating experiences you can go through, even if the end result is a brand new style with endless possibilities.

If your pixie cut is still in the preliminary stages of growth and you’re just starting your journey, you’re yet to go through the inevitable awkward phase. At Flip-In Hair, we think it’s in your best interest to prepare for what’s to come and we’re here to guide you through the process. So strap in and get ready to read our top tips for growing out a pixie cut.

 

Pixie Cut

Style It Out Whilst You Are Growing Out Your Pixie Cut

 

When you start growing your pixie cut out, your hair is going to look a bit… choppy. Sadly, that’s something you can’t avoid for a few months. You can either hide away or you can embrace your shaggy layers, after all, they’ll soon be a distant memory! There’s nothing more annoying than trying to disguise what’s happening on top of our heads, so we don’t think you should.

To get around this, opt for products that create volume and define your layers, such as root-boosting powders and texturising gum. If you’re in between washes, dry shampoo can also give you the volume you need until you next wash your hair. These products will shift focus and make it look like your newfound hairstyle is entirely intentional until it gets a little bit longer.

 

If In Doubt, Accessorise

 

Accessories have the potential to cover up bad hair days. Expect plenty of these when you don’t have a pixie cut anymore but you also don’t have a bob just yet. When your hair hits this stage, let accessories become your friend, they will be sure to help you in the long run. 

Headscarves, hats and hairbands are perfect if you’re looking to hide your hair as it continues to grow. These accessories are lifesavers when styling your hair just isn’t on the agenda. If you fancy being a little bit more adventurous, clips are the way forward. You can use bobby pins to pin curl your locks, which will hopefully inject a bit of 50s glamour into your day. You can also pin back the longer sections of your hair that contribute to the mullet vibe you’re probably trying to avoid. If you’re not opposed to hiding a mullet, we’re honestly very impressed. If it’s good enough for Miley Cyrus… 

 

Embrace Extensions

 

Once your hair finally resembles a bob, you’re essentially unstoppable! As soon as your pixie cut is a thing of the past, you’ll have so many more options to choose from, including extensions! We know they might seem overwhelming, especially if you grew up in the early 2000s (looking at you, Christina Aguilera) but there’s no need to fear!

As we know, extensions have the ability to make or break your entire look. Fortunately, with our product range, paired with our colour match service and expertise, you’ll always be in safe hands. You’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time, you deserve to make the most of it.

Autumn Hair Care Tips

Autumn Hair Care Tips

Autumn is rapidly approaching and you should be starting to ready your hair for the weather change and a brand new hair care routine.

 

Autumn Hair

 

Treat Yourself To A Trim

 

We all know that, as a rule, we should be getting regular cuts every 6-8 weeks. Yet, as summer ends, we should be thinking about getting rid of that summer damage as soon as possible. The sun weakens our hair’s protein structure, dries it out and reduces its elasticity, making it prone to breakage. A post-summer trim will help to eliminate this damage and make room for your fresh, healthy hair to grow and flourish.

 

Scalp Care And Combating Dryness

 

As we head into autumn we need to re-moisturise our hair. To make this happen, use a mask or gloss once a week as they will add moisture to your hair and reduce the dryness left behind from summer. The change in weather will also mean your hair is put through more stress, so using a deep conditioning treatment will ensure it stays happy and healthy.

Washing your hair too often will strip it of the essential oils produced by your body, leaving it malnourished and dry. Generally speaking, it’s said you should wash your hair two to three times a week, however, this depends on your hair type. An easy way to ensure your hair gets all those beautiful nutrients from your scalp is to brush it at night to help push these towards the ends.

 

Following The Correct Diet

 

As with anything to do with the body, having the correct diet is imperative. Hair is made of protein, so including this in your diet is going to help keep it strong. Protein can be found in foods such as chicken, fish, eggs and dairy products. For vegetarians or vegans, legumes and nuts are good options.

Omega-3 provides oils that hydrate your hair and scalp. Good sources of Omega-3 include salmon, herring and sardines. This also appears in avocado, pumpkin seeds and walnuts.

Try to include Biotin in your diet as well as too little can cause your hair to become brittle, making it prone to dryness and breakage. Biotin can be found in liver and egg yolks. Alternatively, non-meat eaters could choose wholegrains, soy flour or yeast. Biotin can also be purchased in pill form at most supplement stores.

Not having enough iron can lead to hair loss! Our hair follicles and roots are fed by our blood supply, so ensuring you have enough iron is extremely beneficial. Opt for foods such as red meat, chicken and fish. Vegetarian and vegan options include lentils, spinach, kale, broccoli and general leafy greens. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron, and you can find this in foods like blackcurrants, blueberries, strawberries and sweet potatoes.
