A hair care routine for long hair can be hard to figure out on your own. In search of answers, you can quickly find yourself floundering in a sea of hair care tips and tutorials geared towards women.

Universal Truths

In the video below, I’ve broken down the foundational steps to a healthy hair care routine. While this post is centered around straight hair, there are some universal truths to any quality regimen: detangle, wash, hydrate, trim.

Stick to these core principles and your hair will be as magnificent as it can be, no matter your hair length, type or texture.

The following products offer benefits for all hair types and textures, but the specific product mix and how often you use them will be up to you to determine. It’s all about finding the optimal combination and frequency for your hair and scalp type.

Apply these principles, try different variations, and see what gets you the best results.

Maybe you don’t need leave-in conditioner every time you shampoo. Maybe your scalp is dry enough that you can condition your hair closer to the roots. Or perhaps your hair is oily, so you forgo the conditioner altogether and just use hair serum on your ends. It’s all about finding what works for you!
