Don't wash your hair too often.
Washing your hair every day makes it dry out, since it doesn't give your scalp the chance to produce the oils your hair needs to stay healthy. Try washing it two or three times a week instead.
Style your hair in an updo or with a hat on the last day before you wash it.
Use dry shampoo or a little baking soda around your roots and bangs to absorb your hair's oil.
Wash your hair with lukewarm or cool water.
Wash your hair with lukewarm or cool water. Using hot water on your hair causes damage, but cool or even cold water causes the hair shafts to lie flat, giving your hair a shiny, glossy appearance.
Wear a swim cap in the pool.
Wear a swim cap in the pool. Have you ever had a stylist ask you if you're a swimmer? That's because chlorine causes recognizable damage that builds up over time. Give your hair a break from chlorine by wearing a cap every time you go swimming.
If you go swimming without a cap, make sure to wash out the chlorine with a good natural shampoo.
Don't sit in the sun after swimming without a cap, because the sun's rays will compound the damage done by the chlorine. Wash it out before you sunbathe.
Stay in good general health.
Stay in good general health. Just like other parts of your body, your hair is affected by what you eat and drink. Make sure you get plenty of water, vitamins and essential nutrients.
Omega-3 fatty acids are known to be great for hair and skin. Eat salmon, walnuts, flaxseeds, and other sources of this beneficial food.
Fruits and vegetables like spinach, kale, carrots, and avocados improve the health of your hair.
