1. Smother it in Coconut Oil
Coconut oil isn’t just great for cooking. It can be used to strengthen nails, moisturize skin, and of course, strengthen and smooth the hair. You can apply it for as long as you like, whether you only have 15 minutes or overnight. When you wash it off, don’t apply conditioner – it will feel great already!
2. Apply Oil After Washing
After washing your hair, apply a special oil treatment to smooth out your split ends and make hair look healthy. Oil treatments will also protect your hair from heat damage. You can even smooth it on dry hair to make it shine (just don’t use too much)!
3. Use Heat Protecting Spray
Whenever you use heat on your hair, make sure you use a heat protecting spray beforehand. You can spray it in when your hair is wet to protect it from blow drying, and use it before straightening and curling.
4. Try Special Products
You may need a little extra help when it comes to your hair, depending on what your issues are. If you want your hair to grow for example, products like biotin can work. Take a look at some important facts about biotin for hair growth before making your decision.
5. Don’t Use Too Much Heat
Although you can use a heat spray before using styling tools on your hair, never use too much heat. Try to limit the amount you dry and straighten/curl your hair, and let it dry naturally if you can. Embrace your natural hair type!
6. Don’t Over Wash Your Hair
Washing your hair too much can strip it of it’s natural oils and make it even greasier than before. If you get into the habit of washing your hair too much, it will get used to it and you’ll find your hair becomes greasier much easier. Many people only wash their hair a couple of times per week. Use dry shampoo in between washes and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it! Although you shouldn’t over wash your hair, make sure you take care of your scalp when you do. The scalp often gets neglected, but it’s just as important!
7. Get a Haircut
If your hair is in really bad condition and you’re at a loss of what to do after trying everything mentioned here, try getting a haircut. When I say cut, I mean CUT. Not a trim. Have a healthy amount cut off your hair and it will instantly feel thicker and healthier. Going from long hair to a long bob for example, can be a wonderful change and do your hair a world of good!
