- Drink lots of water and eat well (green vegetables). Water helps keeps your hair from getting dried out, and green vegetables keep your hair strong and healthy.
- Use hair moisturizers to help keep your hair from getting dried and reducing breakage.
- Don't sleep with wet hair. Make sure your hair is dry before retiring for the night. Continuous wet hair will cause the hair to split, and become more entangled and frizzed out over time.
- Avoid excessive heat on the hair. Make sure you limit the use of the high heat setting on your hair drier, and don't over heat your hair when curling, as it can damage your hair. Only heat long enough to get the hair to curl.
For all the short hair gals, start out by realizing that you have to have your hair cut every 4-7 weeks to maintain the consistency of the short hair style you have chosen. Depending on your hair's growth rate, you may have to come into the salon more or less often. To keep a short haircut looking fresh and make it easier to style, it must be maintained. Also keep in mind that you will be required to do a bit of staying when you have a trendy short cut. Consider having your hair colored. It will accent the shape and dynamic of your haircut, and also keep it from losing it shape so fast. We call that roughing up the hair.
