1. Deep Condition
Deep conditioning your hair will infuse your strands with those essential nutrients it needs to stay healthy. Like any other part of your body hair requires nourishment. Many of your hair’s vital nutrients are lost everyday due to pollution and contamination. That’s is why it is important to replenish your hair with proteins and vitamins, which can be found on many deep
conditioners. This will help maintain your hair’s elasticity and will keep your hair strong.
2. Detangle Often
As the saying goes: “The more the merrier” this also applies to combing your hair.
You should detangle both before washing your hair and after, and always using a wide tooth comb. Beginning on the ends and working your way up to your scalp, this will help you prevent the tearing of the hair which often leads to split ends.
3. Use a boar-bristle brush
Boar Bristle Brushes help distribute your hair’s natural oils keeping it shiny and healthy.
This will also help moisturize and keep your hair healthy. Do it at least once a day from scalp to ends.
4. Be gentle with hot tools
While it might be just impossible to stay away from them, we recommend to be gentle on their use. The already high temperatures and the exposing to the sun might damage your locks you definitely don’t want to also harm your hair by over heating in with hot tools.
