If you’re washing your hair every day, you may want to consider scaling back. Your scalp naturally produces oils that keep hair healthy and shiny. However, if you’re stripping away those oils every day, it can actually make hair become too oily as the scalp tries to overcompensate. Try washing hair every other day or only twice a week instead of daily. This will help restore your hair’s natural balance. You may also want experiment with washing your hair in cool water, since hot water can strip the hair. Washing with cool water will close the hair shaft, giving you shinier, sleeker hair.

8. Handle with Care

If you have damaged hair (or even if you don’t), try to handle your hair with care, much like you would a delicate garment. Wash your hair gently in cool water with a gentle shampoo and conditioner, then gently pat your hair dry instead rubbing vigorously with a towel. Be especially careful when hair is wet, since that’s when your hair is most susceptible to breakage. Purchase a wide-toothed comb to gently comb out wet hair, taking care to work through tangles rather than yanking the comb through them.

7. Avoid Heat When Possible

Hot rollers, flat irons, curling irons and hair dryers all use heat to style your hair, but that heat cam damage your tresses over time. Whenever possible, avoid using styling devices that use heat. Air drying will keep hair healthier. However, if you need to use your blow dryer, try using it on the cool setting. If you must use other heated styling devices, use a product that protects hair from heat before using.
