Buy a good quality shampoo conditioner from the market. However, take care that these products do not contain alcohol and lauryl sulfate (SLS) as these elements are degenerative for hair. Using good quality products not only prevents hair from going brittle but also repairs them. When you use the conditioner, let it soak in your scalp and hair before you wash it off. Massage softly.
Good hair also ask for some preventive care. Avoid prolonged exposures to the sun with your hair naked. Put a scarf or hat on your head to cover the hair form harmful UV rays. Wash your hair with the gap of a day as shampooing daily can bare the scalp of natural oils which keep the hair moisturized.
Give your hair a break from the electric products like blow dryer, curler and straightener. Let your hair dry naturally. Do not use hair sprays and gels frequently. The more unnatural products go into your hair, the rougher they will become.
Add to your diet loads of green leafy vegetables, fish like salmon, chicken and eggs. These products are rich in proteins and vitamins and make your hair healthier. If you are healthier on the inside, it will show on the outside.
