Brush hair from roots to ends nightly. This distributes natural oils throughout the shaft and gives hair a healthy sheen.
2. Dye It Natural
Doing your color yourself? Don’t make too drastic a change. Stay within one or two shades of your natural color.
3. Comb It Out
Comb wet hair like the pros: Hold a handful at a time and work from center to ends, then scalp to center.
4. Let Your Hair Shine
Always rinse out conditioner (which should go on hair ends) with cold water to seal the cuticle and promote shine.
5. Sleep On Silk or Satin
Keep a blowout lasting days longer by sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase.
6. Shake Off Hat Hair
To fix hat-head, bend over and shake your head a few times. Then run fingers through hair to add volume. For even more body, mist a natural-bristle brush with hairspray, bend over and brush lightly from underneath.
7. Avoid Frizz
Avoid frizz, use only a widetooth comb, especially when hair is dry.
8. Choose Shampoo Carefully
If you color your hair, look for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners, which don’t contain harsh detergents.
9. Make Hair Silky and Strong
Apply coconut oil over the bottom half of your hair once a week and let it sit for a couple hours, then rinse. Your hair will be left silky and smooth!
