#2. Comb and brush your hair properly

Manhandling your hair can cause a lot of damage to them, because hair are too fragile. Here are a few ways that can help you avoid hair damage.


  • Use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair, but make sure you do not brush it soon after a shower.

  • Right technique of combing reduces the degree of damage caused to the hair. Use a natural bristle brush and start combing your hair at the bottom and work your way up. If you encounter any tangle, at first try to detangle it with your fingers, and then proceed with a comb.

  • Stop back-combing your hair as it tends to pull out the scales; later when you try to brush that section of hair again, the scales break.
  • Never overbrush your hair as it may lead to more splits.

#3. Stay away from chemicals as much as possible

Protect your hair from chemicals by all means; use only gentle colouring agents if you must. Avoid going for chemical therapies like perms, permanent hair straightening or rebonding, and trying variety of hair colours.

When going for a swim, use leave-in conditioner, oil your hair, or wear a swim cap. As soon as you return, rinse and shampoo your hair.

#4. Use appropriate washing and drying techniques


  • Avoid experimenting with every new product.
  • While the drug stores are replete with hair products that claim to be a successful formula for mending split ends, one must understand that these offer only a temporary fix.
  • Every hair type demands a certain level of care, and not all products suit all kinds of hair. Consult a dermatologist and use only a prescribed shampoo and conditioner.

  • If you have an oily scalp, it is advisable that you wash your hair every alternate day.
  • Conditioner must be applied along the length of the hair so that it soaks it and closes the cuticles before rinsing it with water.
