You are going to need to use product. Me, I like Bumble&Bumble Sumotech (https://www.amazon.com/Bumble-Sumo-Tech-1-5-Ounce-Jar/dp/B000BIUGTQ). Also, long hair is not just "Long". It's cut and styled that way. You probably need to a hair stylist to get it done right. You can't just simply grow it out.
