7 Benefits Of Having Long Hair

Updated on August 4, 2015

There are some suprising advantages to having hair that is on the longer side. Listed below are 7 interesting benefits of having long locks of hair!

Does Not Need To Be Washed As Much

It is not always good to wash your hair everyday. It can be damaging in some cases to your hear and cause breakage. When you wash your hair, you are also stripping away the natural oils. Washing short hair every two or three days can be difficult because shorter hair can get oily from natural oils very easily. Long hair, on the other hand can be washed every other day, because the natural oils can be distributed more.

Can Keep Warm

For those cold days in the late fall or winter sweater weather, when you can see your breath outside, having longer hair can actually be a great benefit for youbenefit. The long hair can cover your ears, neck and parts of your face from the cold air.

Does Not Frizz Or Pouf As Much

Longer hair of course weighs more. This means that the weight will cause tight curls to loosen and make strands of hair that tend to stick out, go down. This will make hair appear less poufy or frizzy looking.

Can Hide Blemishes or Imperfections

Lets face it, no is perfect. We all have or own flaws that can be fixed, but may take time. If you have longer hair, you can easily adjust it accordingly over any blemishes you may have around your neck or face.

Can Make You Look Younger

Having longer hair can make you look younger. The hair will take away attention from creases or wrinkles you may have, and can also frame just about any shape of face in a flattering way.

Easier To Style

If you have or ever had short hair, then you know the struggle of not being able to put all of your hair in a ponytail, or even having difficulties braiding hair. It is much easier to get all strands of hair in a ponytail if you have longer locks.

Can Make The Face Look Thinner

If you have a rounder or bigger face structure, long hair can be used to frame your face in a thin and flattering way. The hair will also take more attention away from the shape of the face, and add more attention to the hair. This works well espeacially if the hair has great volume.
