Washing your hair

While selecting the shampoo, you have to be careful again. Select the shampoo which is sulfate and silicone free. After washing out shampoo, use conditioner on our hair. Apply and rub the conditioner from the direction of hair tips to roots of the hair. Keep the conditioner on your hair for few minutes and rinse it off to get soft and shiny hair. Do not use hot water always to wash your hair. Use cool water to maintain the oil balance of your scalp.

Drying your hair

Using hair dryer in hot setting can make your hair rough and dry. If you are not using dryer then avoid knotting your hair with towel. Wet hair is more delicate and it can break if wrapped in towel. Do not rub your hair harshly with towel or cloth. Avoid combing or brushing hair when they are wet. If you are using any type of styling product then be careful that you use it only on hair and not on the scalp. It can make your scalp dry and damage the roots of your hair. Do not over use the styling products on your hair to save them from breakage.

Hair brushing and accessories

Use natural bristle brush such as boar bristle brush which is helpful to spread in your hair and make them look soft and bouncy. If you are using a comb then use wide tooth comb only. You can also use leave – in conditioner or detangle lotion to make your hair more flexible. Choosing correct hair accessories is also necessary. Always use elastic and fabric covered elastics on your hair. This can prevent hair damage and hair breakage.

Food and special treatments for your hair
