Leave your hair loose or as a loose plait when you go to bed. The tightness could leave you with a headache, and will slowly pull the follicles out. You will notice that hair salons and cosmetic wholesalers have the best and healthiest products for hair. This ensures that clients are happy with their hair after they have washed and styled it.
Do not brush wet hair. It will create longer split ends and it is generally not healthy for the hair. Use a wide toothed comb to detangle the hair in the shower and then let it dry naturally. After it has completely dried, you should be able to use a normal brush without creating damage. When combing the tangles out, start from the tips and make your way to the top of the head. You will be surprised to know that this is less painful and it works three times faster without the frustration involved.
Always use heat protection when you need to use heat products such as blow dryers, straighteners, electronic curlers and curling tongs. When styling your hair, use the blow dryer to get the hair on the top of the head straight and full of volume. If you use extreme heat on the roots, you are at risk of thinning your hair.
Do not roughly dry the strands with the towel. You might pull some of the hair out and create split ends that eventually make the tips look frizzy. You should also consider leaving the towel on your head for less amount of time as it eventually does feel like the follicles are being pulled by the head. Many professional hair stylists say that it is best to use a micro-fibre towel or a light and thin T-Shirt.
