1.Deep Condition every time you wash your hairThink of deep conditioning as feeding your hair. You should be consistently feeding your hair nutrients and moisture in order for it to thrive and grow.
2. Detangle your hair gentlyI know it can seem like our hair is resilient to anything and can stand up to any abuse, but in actuality, our hair is very fragile. To minimize breakage when you are detangling your hair take your time and go through your tangles gently. I have found that finger detangling is best at minimizing breakage for me but you can also use a wide tooth comb and start at your ends and comb your way up to the roots.
3. Use quality productsUsing hair products that do not contribute to your hair's health will only hinder your hair from reaching its maximum potential. I recommend using organic and natural hair products because the ingredients can feed your hair nutrients that help to keep it healthy.
4. Trim your hair consistentlyYou may not have to trim your hair yourself if you frequent hair salons often, but for me, I must trim my hair on my own from time to time because I only visit salons about once every year to year and a half. Even though I am not going to a salon, I still stick to a three-month trimming schedule so that I am getting rid of any split or dry ends throughout the year.
5. Protect your hairRubbing your hair against materials that cause friction leads to breakage and dry hair. Be sure you are always tying your hair up in a satin or silk scarf/bonnet before bed. Even when you wear hats or beanies, you want to protect your hair by having a silk or satin barrier between your hair and the head covering. Hope you find this information helpful!
