    Minimize the use of heat-styling tools 

    We all love how heat-styling tools give us instantaneously gorgeous hair. Whether it’s the blow dryer or the flat and curling irons, our mane feels soft, smooth, and even bouncy. But too much use of it can cause dry and damaged hair because of the heat. If you can’t completely skip it, try minimizing or setting the temperature low, which still works even on moderately thick hair. And every time you use your tools, make sure to spray your hair with a heat protector to keep damage at bay.

    Be cautious with wet hair

    Wet hair is vulnerable hair even when you use a good damage shampoo, so handle it with care. Never brush your hair when it’s wet, or you’ll be pulling it and causing hair fall. It’s better to invest in a good wide-toothed comb to detangle the strands, or a brush that’s specifically for use on wet hair. Moreover, you should skip rubbing your hair vigorously and opt for blotting your hair with a microfiber towel or soft cloth to avoid friction that causes damaged hair.

    Get regular hair trims

    The longer your hair grows, the more prone it is to damage and split ends, which are unsightly. Getting regular trims every six to eight weeks does not only keep your hair healthy but also makes it look well-kept.
