1. Be careful with your brush

Every single time you before you shampoo, make sure you comb or brush your hair to loosen the dirt from your scalp. Do not start shampooing messy hair as you’ll end up breaking a lot of strands in the process. This is why it’s important to ensure that you have a hydrating shampoo for coarse hair. These shampoos leave your hair with long-lasting moisture. At the same time, even if you have had a bad hair day and decide to shampoo your hair and do not comb before doing it, make sure you do not comb or brush your hair while it is still wet. As for fine and oily hair, use shampoos that are not so moisture laden.

2. One heat styling per wash

This is the first rule everyone should remember if they want healthy hair, as it is the most important rule for heat styling. So if you are blow-drying your hair, do not do too much heat styling after that. But if you air-dry your hair, you can use the curling iron for soft pretty waves. When the idea is to make your hair look thicker and fuller, you should use a ceramic curling iron and avoid overusing it. When you overuse the iron on your hair, it makes your hair look oilier.

3. Wash your hair only when necessary

Contrary to popular belief, it is actually not necessary to wash your hair every day. You are the best judge of how often your hair actually needs a wash. Also, it depends on how oily or dry your hair is, so if your hair doesn’t get very oily then you don’t need to wash it as often.

But if you have oily hair, just monitor how and when you want to wash your hair. The best time is usually at least after 2 days.

4. Trim your hair regularly

This is one piece of advice every hairdresser will give you. You should trim your hair to get rid of split ends every few months. The best idea is to give it a gap of three months, and not much longer than that If your hair is more prone to split ends, then try to trim your hair every six weeks or two months. Split ends don’t let your hair grow, which is why it is so important to get them trimmed off at regular intervals.

5. Avocado is magic for your hair
