1. Get a frequent trim
My hairdresser cut about an inch off recently, even though I did not want that much cut off. It turns out skipping trims isn't a good thing. Now, my hair is looking on fleek. If you're looking to prevent damaged hair, getting a couple of centimeters trimmed (about 1 inch) off every 6 weeks will help it grow.
2. Use lots of leave-in conditioner!
I use one every single night. In the morning it makes my hair much easier to work with. My curls separate and do whatever they want if I skip a leave-in. My curls are like, "hey, let's be friends," whenever I use one. Right now I use Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine on wet hair at night before bed. And with this bottle, a little goes a long way.
3. Use a heat protectant serum
Obviously this only applies if you use heat tools, but I use Pantene Heat Protection serum on wet hair along with my conditioner. Since I straighten it often, this is effective in protecting my hair from heat.
4. Use argan oil
I use this one by Hask, it's argan oil from Morocco. I use a bit on my finger tips and run it through my hair for sleek, smooth hair--and I make sure my hair is dry while using it.
