So let us dig into a proper self-guide for hair.

1. Protection

You must like your hair straight, wavy, curl or a blow dry, excessive heat will jeopardise your hair follicles leading to splits and breakage which will further lead to dryness and hair fall. Try to avoid heat as much as you can or apply a heat protectant spray to protect the strands.

2. Comb Properly

Detangling your hair is crucial but with the right brush, instead of synthetic brushes opt for a wide comb or boar bristles that will improve your blood circulation, brushing your hair strengthen the roots and encourages growth.

3. Nourish your Hair

Conditioning your hair is as important as bathing for the body, it assists in detangling and reduction of frizziness.

It adheres to wet hair, covering the strands and replenishing the moisture lost by shampoo.

Never apply the conditioner to the roots, apply it only to the middle and bottom strands to shield them from greasiness.

4. Don’t Wrap a Towel Around Wet Hair
