Use less products on your hair
Using too much of hair gel, hair wax, hair spray or any other hair product makes your hair look unnatural and heavy. Use minimalistic amount of these products when it comes to styling your hair in the right way.
Dry your hair gently; don’t rub it
Wet hair tends to be weaker and vulnerable to damage. So avoid rubbing your hair after washing as it will lead to excessive breakage. Instead pat dry it to avoid stress on scalp.
Use an egg conditioner
Egg is loaded with proteins and essential minerals like sulphur that your hair secretly craves for. Harness the goodness of egg by conditioning your hair regularly with egg yolk. Let the egg yolk penetrate deep into your scalp so as to strengthen your follicles from within.
Protect your hair from chlorine
The chlorine in pools can be extremely disastrous for your scalp as it causes your hair to become dry and brittle. The easiest way to protect your hair from harmful effects of chlorine is to wet your hair with clean water and apply a mild conditioner before you step in into a pool. Alternatively you can also wear a swimming cap.
Finally, make sure you maintain a good diet. The fries and fritters may be tempting. However, it’s important to eat a balanced diet. Eat vegetables, chicken, eggs etc. Drink plenty of water as well.
