Some of us are so fussy with our hair that it takes most of our time. Most of the things that are done to our hair are creepy and should be avoided. Here are some tips to get your dream hair.

Don’t skip trims

When growing your hair out do not skip the trims as you may begin to collect split ends. This may alter the style of your hair resulting in breaking and destruction.

Do sleep on silk or satin pillowcases

Using silk or satin pillowcases can work in two ways; reducing split ends and wrinkles. The fabric assists in helping you sleep lightly.

Don’t cut your own hair

No matter how easy it seems do not cut your own bangs. Even professionals do not attempt such a task as it is risky.

Do protect from UV rays and heat

Turn down your heated styling tools to a minimum to get a look suited for you. Apply a heat protectant to prevent hair damage due to heat.

Don’t wear too-tight ponytails

Although women perceive tight ponytails as useful, it may do more harm than good. This is evident in the form of dryness around the scalp and hairline. It may also be painful.

Do eat for healthy hair

Certain foods such as avocado, eggs, and walnuts can improve your hair by providing nutrients that benefit your hair and skin.


Don’t smoke

Smoking is a bad idea if you are trying to achieve the goal of healthy hair. Smoking makes hair thinner so try and kick out the habit.


Don’t braid before sleeping

If you have long hair, braid it into two pigtails that should be on your sides. You never know, maybe your other half will fall in love with your looks.
