Give your hair the much needed ‘champi’ from time to time. Everyone must give their hair a massage at least one or twice a week to keep hair healthy and happy. Oil your hair from root to tip and gently massage by pressing acupressure points of head to get smooth and soft hair. Do not wash immediately after applying oil. Give your head massage with oil at night and wash next morning so that hair can absorb the required amount of oil.
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Avoid washing your head daily, and wash your hair on 3 times a week using a sulphate free shampoo as it is gently and prevents a dry scalp. Give your head a gentle massage while washing. Do not apply much pressure.
Stick To One Brand
It is mostly seen that one keeps changing their shampoo from time to time, which is not a good habit. Once you have found a shampoo that works for your hair type, then stick to that only, as it keeps your hair shiny and pretty.
It is necessary to condition your hair every time you shampoo, so it feels soft and tangle-free post the hair wash. The conditioner you apply should be natural, silicon-free with no harmful chemicals.

So do not style your hair very often with heat styling methods. You can experiment with no-heat styling methods like rollers or trying your hair in a plait overnight. It will be very helpful but if you have no other option then use a heat protective serum to avoid too much damage.
Eat Right Food

Direct sunlight can also cause damage to your skin. Like we apply sunscreen for our skin, in same manner we should use a heat protecting serum to protect your hair too from UV rays. Direct sunrays to scalp for long time can cause dryness and damage to our precious locks.
Most people do not get their hair trim because the may be growing hair, but it is very important to have regular trims as they get rid of those split ends, which are the biggest roadblock on the way to long locks. The damaged ends cause hair to break very easily.
