Washing your hair regularly ensures that your scalp and hair is free of dirt and excess oil. It also helps to keep your scalp healthy and free of bacteria and fungus. A good rule of thumb is to wash your hair every other day, or once a day if you’re doing active sports.
Use Chemical Free Shampoos: Using chemical-laden shampoos can cause hair loss and damage to the follicles of your scalp. This can lead to baldness in extreme cases. Choose shampoos that are all natural and organic so that they don’t contain any harmful chemicals or additives like sulfates, parabens, phthalates and others.
Condition Correctly: Conditioning your hair regularly helps prevent split ends, breakage and dryness, which will make it look healthier and shinier! You should condition after every wash to keep your hair soft and manageable between washes too!
Dry Your Hair Naturally: When drying your hair with a towel after washing it, twist it into a bun on top of your head before wrapping up with the towel so that all the water is absorbed evenly from all sides instead of just one side getting soaked up quickly by
When it comes time to dry your hair, make sure you’re not using an excessively hot setting on your blow dryer. This can damage the cuticle layer of the hair strand, causing it to become frizzy and dry.
Also be sure to oil your ends weekly with a lightweight oil such as coconut or argan oil—just remember not to put too much product on! Use a wide-toothed comb to brush through any knots after blow drying.
Finally, style your hair in a way that will keep it healthy for as long as possible: try braiding it into two ponytails or buns so that there isn’t any tension on one side of the head (which can cause damage). Trim regularly (every six weeks) so that split ends don’t become unmanageable.
