Beauty tutorials are big on YouTube — a search for "makeup tutorial" and "hair tutorial" yields more than five million videos. In this weekly series, we put a mix of popular and under-the-radar tutorials to the test and show you what's best.
Whether you're trying to grow out a haircut that didn't go exactly as planned or have a specific long style you're working toward, proper maintenance is key when you're trying to grow your hair out. Beauty vlogger Tiffany Ma, who herself boasts especially long locks — that's her pictured above — seems to have the key to length all figured out. So, she created a video offering up 15 hacks, tips and tricks for growing long hair — from the basic to the surprising.
One, for example, involves using baking soda in place of shampoo. (There's actual sensible logic behind it, don't worry.) Ma also touches on the right way to comb your hair, the best method for preventing tangles from appearing overnight and a process for massaging the scalp to stimulate growth. And of course, there may or may not be a coconut oil trick in there (because what is a beauty hack roundup without coconut oil?).
