After rinsing away all the shampoo, run water over your hair thoroughly to ensure there are no remains of shampoo in your hair, as it might cause great damage to your scalp.
When applying hair treatment products, do so just after you have washed your hair, so that your hair can absorb all the good stuff while it is half wet. This will be the best time for it to absorb nourishment.
NEVER go to bed with your hair wet! Hair that is half wet is most easily broken, and if you sleep during this time, your hair will be rubbing against each other, damaging your hair in the most terrible way.
Too much pressure may lead to hair loss! Relax. Try some good relaxation methods such as soaking in a nice scented bath, listening to music, and eating healthy comfort foods such as strawberries and grapes.
Perming and colouring seriously damage your hair. Avoid it as much as possible. Also, when using hair setting products such as gel or putty, use as little as possible, because they can hurt your scalp and hair. Wash them out thoroughly afterwards with a shampoo specially created for removing styling products.
