How To Avoid The Awkward Grow-Out Phase Of Your Bangs

Published

on

Bangs can be cute, I will admit that. But it can be a lot of hard work. Being committed to bangs required so much time. Between the dry shampooing, the blow dry, the trimming, I swear sometimes giving up sounds like the best idea. But the one thing people don’t complain enough yet I find it to be really annoying is the awkward phase of growing out your bangs. The first couple months after your first cut, the bangs will look good. But after that, the bangs will grow uncontrollably and all we can do is try to style them as best as we can. Praying much that our bangs don’t look too weird. But don’t worry. Here I come with five tips on how to avoid that awkward phase when you are growing your bangs.

The Headband

Some people don’t really like this option as they find it to be more hard work than the bangs. But I find a headband to be very helpful. It is very easy and will definitely keep your annoying-length of bangs out of the way. If you are afraid the headband will slip off, try the messy, textured, wavy hairstyle. First, make the loose waves with the curling iron. Afterward, don’t forget to apply some dry texturizing spray to give your waves a light hold.

Clipped Back

Barrettes are back in town, people! Yes, if you look on Instagram, you will see so many fashion girls wearing barrettes. Even if you don’t think they are fashionable enough, they are very useful in keeping your bangs away from your face. To wear them, first part your hair into two. Then using a fine-tooth comb, slick down your hair, including your bangs for around two inches. Spray some hair spray to keep your hair tidy. Lastly, once your front hair and bangs are smooth and secured, put on hair clips around three inches from the roots and tuck them behind your ears. For the rest of your hair, mist a volumizing spray on your roots and salt spray on the rest of your hair. The idea is to create smooth, silky textures for the front of your hair and bangs part. And wavy, rough textures for the rest of your hair.

Braided Roots

This style is especially perfect if you don’t wash your hair every day. To make a braided root, first, apply some dry shampoo to sop up grease and give some extra grit and hold for the braid. Next, grab three inches of hair from above the forehead, including the bangs. Section off a triangular mohawk from your hairline all the way to the crown of your head. Then braid your hair tightly so your bangs don’t pop out. Braid until the crown of your hair then secure with a hair tie. Continue to braid the tail down until the end. To secure the braid, apply some hairspray along.

Bobby-Pin Twist

For this hairstyle, all you need is a bunch of colorful bobby pin. First, part your hair into two in the center. Then, twist around an inch of your hair from your hairline, including the bangs. Twist on both sides until you reach above the ears. Secure the twists with some crisscrossed bobby pins. For extra hold, repeat the X pattern of the bobby pins an inch below the previous pins. Lastly, mist some hair spray to keep the bobby pins and the twists in place.

Braided Crown

This hairstyle, in particular, needs a little extra effort compared to some above. First, what you have to do is to make textures for your hair so your bangs won’t pop out from the braid. So, sprinkle some texturing powder on your roots and along the hairline. Then, make a deep side part on your hair. Next, french braid your hair along the hairline, including your bangs up to just right above the ear. Secure the braid with crisscrossed bobby pins. To make sure the bobby pins and the braid stay in place, put a hair clip over the bobby pins.

It is the dream if our hair can grow very long in an overnight. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. According to a hairstylist, hair only grow up a quarter inch, mostly a half inch per month. And still, growing a really long hair is only possible if the hair is super healthy and doesn’t have split ends. But, there is a good news. There are ways to speed up the process if you feel that your hair doesn’t grow fast enough.

Trim Your Hair

Surprisingly, in order to grow your hair, scissors are your best friend. even though it sounds counterintuitive, untrimmed hair will lead up to even higher split for your ends. Therefore, an uncut hair is actually shorter than trimmed hair.

Use Hair Mask Weekly

If your hair is shoulder length or longer, it means that it has been two to three years since you grow them. This also means that your hair will need more than a conditioner to help it stay healthy. So, hair mask weekly for extra vitamin.
