Want to know how to take care of your long beautiful hair? Here are top 8 tips to make your hair become more beautiful and strong.
1. Do not over-wash your hair
It is recommended to wash hair 3 times a week. As we know, hair’s natural oils are designed to condition and protect your tresses, but they will be stripped away by shampoo. You need to frequently wash hair with shampoo since it creates a vicious cycle of over-production of oils. On the other side, you can invest in a good natural dry shampoo to help tide you over until your next wash and add volume and texture.
2. Wash hair the right way
Most of the oil will build up in the scalp. Therefore, it is recommended to massage shampoo into the scalp gently with your fingers to get rid of it. Massaging shampoo can encourage blood circulation and helps to detoxify the scalp. Next, you can apply conditioner along the length of your hair to restore moisture. Rinse hair with cold water.
3. Use the right hair brush
It is recommended to choose a boar bristle brush or a wet brush to smooth the hair shaft, to minimize any breakage. You can minimize friction when brushing as long as you use a natural fiber brush, like the boar bristle. Thus, hair will not get caught on any knots. You will have smooth and silky hair without pulling out hair strands. As the bristles bend around any tangles putting less stress on the hair, the trusty wet brush also does a fantastic job.
You should start brushing from the end of hair to the top down, which ensures no pressure is put on the roots, minimizing damage. A wide-tooth comb is only suitable for wet hair. Brushing damp hair may cause a lot of damages as it stretches the strands rather than separates them.
4. Use a deeply hydrating treatment twice a week
If style your hair with heat, you can use a deep hydrating treatments to replenish any lost moisture. Alternatively, you can use olive or avocado oil to replenish any lost moisture.
- Gently warm the oil in a pan on a low heat.

It is recommended to heat oil, for heated oil is more easily absorbed into the hair.
5. Use a heat protectant
Always use heat protectant. Use a heat protectant to wrap hair, forming a protective barrier, which can prevent damage and ensure your style is sleek and frizz free.
6. Use hair bands that don’t pull at the root
To keep the strands strong and resilient, you can use a band like a scrunchy or the plastic coil type for they will make sure the hair isn’t under any unnecessary stress.
7. Use a hair wrap or an old t-shirt
We strongly suggest that you use a smooth fabric, such as cotton or linen, to get rid of excess moisture before heat styling. Therefore, if you use it to warp your hair, the hair shaft is not caused to fray and the strands are kept sleeker which reduce the likelihood of frizz or damage.
8. Use a low-heat setting for hair-drying and point the nozzle down

- Keep the hairdryer nozzle two inches away from the strands.

- Point the nozzle straight down and keep it three inches away from the hair.
