1. Use a good shampoo
A good shampoo should have a pH level between 5-8, and should not contain any sulfates, parabens, phthalates, or synthetic fragrances. You want to avoid using shampoos that contain sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) as they strip away natural oils and leave your hair dry and damaged.
2. Conditioning products
Conditioners are great for keeping your hair soft and manageable. Look for ones that are free of silicones, sulfates, and artificial fragrance.
3. Hair masks
Hair masks are great at adding moisture back into your hair after washing. Try using them once or twice per week.
4. Avoid over-conditioning
Over-conditioning your hair can cause damage and make it harder to style. If you’re looking for extra volume, try using a product that contains protein instead of conditioner.
5. Wash your hair less often
Washing your hair daily can lead to buildup and breakage. Try washing your hair only two times a week.
6. Don’t use hot water
Hot water strips away the natural oils that keep your hair moisturized. Instead, use lukewarm or cold water to wash your hair.
7. Dry your hair naturally
Drying your hair with a towel rather than air drying it helps prevent split ends.
