Simple tips on how to care for hair
1. Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet of proper food and consume excess water to prevent hair breakage. Lean proteins, fruits, raw vegetables, whole grains, legumes, omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon or flaxseed oil and dairy products will keep hair healthy.
2. Wash hair sparingly and use a good-quality shampoo. Washing hair too often can leave hair dried out, leached of its natural oils, and may damage your hair. Aim to shampoo your hair at most every other day or only twice a week.
3. Use more natural hair care products like lemon, coconut oil, vinegar etc. for hair care.

How to properly arrange hair to not destroy them
1. Dry your hair with minimal heat, as extreme heat will damage most hair. Lessen the frequency or intensity of heat used from blow dryers, flat irons, and curling irons.
2. Trim your hair regularly. The best way to get rid of split ends is to do it yourself. Take some hair shears and attack the split ends about 1⁄4 inch (0.6 cm) above the splitting. Many women with perfect hair never have split ends because they make it a priority to get their hair trimmed, or trim it themselves, every 6-8 weeks.
3. Use a heat protectant:
It goes without saying – we all know we should use one, but it’s such an easy-to-forget step, that really makes a difference! A heat protectant wraps the hair shaft, forming a protective barrier, thus preventing damage and ensuring your style is sleek and frizz free.
Use hair bands that don’t pull at the root:
The 80’s scrunchy is back and secretly your hair couldn’t be more happy about it! Using a band like a scrunchy, or the plastic coil type, means you hair is not pulled at the root. This makes sure the hair isn’t under any unnecessary stress, keeping the strands strong and resilient.
I hope that by following these basic principles, your hair will be healthy and nourished.
