Shampoo your hair only once every 2 to 3 days
Washing your hair every day can zap away moisture from the scalp and dry out your hair. Shampoo your hair once every two or three days to retain moisture.
Use a protein-rich conditioner
Natural conditioners that contain a high concentration of protein work best for dry, damaged hair. The proteins help smooth out the hair and protect the strands from root to tip.
Refrain from using the blow dryer
Skip the blow dryer and let your hair dry naturally, or use a blow dryer on its lowest settings.
Protect your hair from the sun
Wear a headscarf or hat to protect your hair from UV damage.
Give yourself a scalp massage
Give yourself a vigorous scalp massage – or ask someone to give you one – every week to increase blood circulation to your scalp. This will also strengthen roots and follicles.
Use a hot oil treatment
A weekly hot oil treatment can restore lost moisture and make your hair silky and soft. Hot oil treatments will also stimulate blood flow to the scalp, making hair become stronger and healthier.
