1. Visit your stylist at least every six weeks.
2. Invest in some good products.
3. Lack of protein can cause dry, dull and tired-looking hair. So eat oily fish, meat, eggs and dairy products for naturally shiny hair, as well as enough fiber, carbohydrates and fruit and vegetables. And drink plenty of water.
In the shower
Conditioner maintains hair's moisture balance and helps to prevent tangles. Apply it to the ends and comb your hair before rinsing with a wide-toothed comb. For the best results, use a conditioner that matches your shampoo. Finish your shower with a blast of cold water, which will revive your hair and close the hair cuticles.
Damp hair is more vulnerable. After washing, towel dry your hair gently and if possible, leave it to dry in the fresh air. Also avoid going to bed with damp hair. If you apply a hair care product, to make sure that it penetrates your hair even more, put it on towel-dried hair and wrap a warm damp towel around your head.
Brush or comb your hair gently once or twice a day. If you have mid-length or long hair, choose a brush with a soft rubber base (anti-static effect) and mixture of nylon and bristle. The finer your hair, the more natural the bristles should be. For short hair, use a wide- toothed comb or a small brush. Don't constantly use accessories: hairpins or hair bands that are too tight can break the hair. And don't forget to wash your brush and comb every couple of months.
If you have long hair, plait it loosely before going to bed. Your hair won't get messy as quickly and you will avoid tangles when you wake up. Just before going to bed, apply a leave-in conditioner to the ends. And wash your pillow cases regularly.
