1| Protect Your Hair
The sun, pollution and dirt can damage our hair just as much as they damage our skin when it is over exposed. To avoid any real damage, be sure to protect your hair from harmful UV rays and dirt by misting your hair with moisturizing spray that's enriched with UV protection. Also make sure to always cover your head with a scarf/hat when at the beach.
2| Lock-in Moisture with Cold Water
Most people tend to wash their hair with hot water which is really bad for the hair follicles as hot water can strip away our hair's natural moisture. To lock-in your hair's moisture, shampoo and condition with warm water and lastly rinse with cold water. Your hair will feel healthier and shinier too.
3| Healthy Food = Healthy Hair
90 percent of our hair is what we eat as it's is made of protein so it is sensible to up your protein intake. Eat more greens and natural foods to supply essential nutrients to your mane. Avoid eating excess processed and fatty foods as they don't have real nutrients and aren't healthy for your hair.
4| Don't Comb Wet Hair
The hair becomes weak and brittle when damp, so always towel dry your hair and avoid brushing them while they are wet. Wet hair are prone to breakage and brushing them while still wet can increase the risk of developing split ends.
5| Use of Heat Appliances Should be Limited
We live in a world where we can hardly survive without using a flat iron, hair dryer or a curling wand even though we are fully aware of effect it can have on the health of our hair. Even so, we can't completely quit using heat appliances however, if you wish to maintain the health of your mane, you should limit their use. Avoid curling or straightening your hair everyday and whenever you do, be sure to prep your hair with a good heat protectant to prevent drying or burning your hair.
