Prevent breakage and split ends: hair breakages is one of the most common causes of natural hair loss. If possible, avoid tight hairstyles which can break you hair’s follicle. Determine the cause of the breakage to avoid further damage. However, the most common culprits are heat harsh chemicals and improper hair treatment.
Maintain a healthy diet: drink plenty of water and eats lots of protein, which promotes healthy hair growth. Vitamin A is also a good nutrient for growth as well as green leafy foods.
Try not to comb wet hair: it can easily break off, it is best to let your hair air dry-especially during warmer days, as it will reduce tangling and breaking. Deep conditioning your hair weekly also promotes hair growth. Keep in mind that shampooing too often may lead to dull, dry and stiff hair. Also, use an old T-shirt to dry your hair as microfiber rips hair out.
Protect you hair while sleeping: nighttime routines are an important part of your hair care regiment. You should sleep with a satin pillowcase or bonnet as cotton ones creates friction between hair and the pillow surface which may lead to hair breakage.
