AVOID HEATED STYLING TOOLS
Heat is a nightmare to your hair, and heat protectants don’t always work. They can help protect your hair only slightly, but if you’re straightening everyday – you may be damaging your hair. This leads to breakage and frizz which does not mean long gorgeous hair.
SKIP DAILY SHAMPOO
Of course everyone wants to be clean, but shampooing everyday is dangerous. Shampooing it less allows your natural oils to penetrate your hair and allows it to repair itself by hydration.
SLEEP ON SILK PILLOWCASES

COOL OFF IN THE SHOWER
Hot water is not great for your hair or skin, that’s a fact. Turn the temperature down when you are cleaning out shampoo or conditioner. Rinse with cool water to seal the cuticle and strengthen your hair!
IF ALL ELSE FAILS, TRY VITAMINS
The diet doesn’t work and other techniques aren’t helping, then try supplements. Look for ones that contain important vitamins like biotin and C and B vitamins that target hair health. Added bonus for the fact that they can help your skin and nails too.
