Oil them well and massage with your fingertips for 10-15 minutes to circulate the blood flow well in your scalp. This will not only hydrate them but also releases stress from your body.
Be Gentle With Your Hair
Do you often get excited when your hair are super tangled? Never show that harsh attitude to your hair. They are gentle and need that care to look their best. Use a wide comb to brush your hair. You have to treat them well in order to give you your best looks 🙂
Nothing Beats the good care for your body. Your hair is a reflection of what you put inside your body. Summers tend to suck out the water content from your body. Keep refilling your body with lemon water or just plain water.
Avoid Washing Your Hair With Hot Water
Never let you hair get under hot water in the Shower. Your hair has natural oils in it that are released by your body automatically. When you wah your hair with hot water these oils get washed too. If strictly necessary then you must try lukewarm water only.
Swimmers – This One’s For You!
For those who love to swim for fun or professionally, your hair tends to suck out that chlorine of water (that is actually used to kill bacteria). This chlorine is harsh for your tresses. Wear swimming caps always, no matter what. This is very important!
Heading Out In The Sun
Use headwraps and cover your hair if you dont want your hair to get frizzy due to lack of moisture content in the air. Perfect way to show off your new Bandanas ladies!
Never Rub Your Hair With Towel
If you want to dry your hair then simply dab your hair with good towel. This will take off excess water from your tresses. No need of rubbing, this increases your hair fall.
