2.Do not wash your hair every day. Hair washing daily removes the oil that is in your hair. Consider shampooing your hair every two or three times a week. In case your hair has oil then test dry shampoos. Wash only the scalp, only the tips.
3.Always apply conditioner. Don’t forget to apply conditioner for 2-5 minutes and wash it off following washing your hair. Only apply conditioner to the tips of your hair, and not on the scalp or all the length. Conditioners aid in locking in the moisture.
