Everyday hair info we tend to brush under the carpet
  • Over shampooing strips your hair of its natural oils. When you shampoo try to lather up once. Also give co washing a try, especially when you don't have major product build up.
  • Maintain a healthy diet. The healthier you are, the healthier your hair will be. FACT.
  • Use less heat. When blow drying choose use a cooler setting. Heat makes dry hair even dryer. If your hair isn't too 'due' you can also give airdrying a try.
  • Always condition after shampooing and deep Condition too. Dc-ing with heat is even better as the heat opens up your hair cuticles allowing the moisturizer to penetrate the hair shaft.
  • Drink enough water a day, your hair needs hydration and gets it from your body too.
  • Be Gentle with your hair no matter what state it is in. Hair is fragile.
  • Dry your hair gently, by blotting and squeezing, not wringing or rubbing.
  • Always use a heat protector
  • Use a silk or satin head scarf to wrap your hair at night. This is a smooth surface and therefore reduces breakage or split ends caused by rough textures.
  • Do not over process or overlap your existing straighten hair. (over processing is relaxing hair that isn't new growth)
  • Always wait at least 6/8 weeks before your next relaxer.
  • Use leave-in-conditioner. Leave-ins nourish the hair and help protect the hair from the sun and environment. It also helps protect against heat damage. 
  • Moisturize and seal- Protect your strands with a light moisturizer and then seal them with oil. Your ends are the oldest part of your hair, they need extra moisture. This reduces breakage and split ends.
  • Use wide tooth comb
  • Rubber bands and Metal hair clips can cause breakage
