- Don’t brush your hair when it’s wet. Hair can get more damaged when it’s damp than when it is dry.
- Stick to wide-tooth combs if you must detangle damp locks (avoid if possible) or boar bristles to distribute oils.
- Treat your hair to a deep conditioning masque once or twice a week. Depending on the ingredients used, these products provide a rush of hydration and nutrients that repair and nourish the hair shaft.
- Treat dandruff with a dandruff-specific shampoo like the Vatika Enriched Anti-Dandruff Lemon and Tea Tree Shampoo you find at the drugstore, just remember not to overuse the product as you wouldn’t want to switch your dandruff problem to a dry scalp problem.
- Baking soda works for dandruff, too. Create a paste of baking soda and then rinse it out in the shower. This will help absorb the excess oil. As a rule, baking soda helps balance pH of your scalp/skin.
- The health of your scalp majorly affects your hair, as the natural oils produced on your scalp are meant to be distributed down the hair shaft, but if that area is lacking, your strands may suffer, too. So, give your scalp a treat by using a moisture-enhanced shampoo like Vatika’s Heena & Olive Shampoo.
- Start untangling your hair from the bottom working your way up to eliminate breakage.
- Getting trims ever so often won’t make hair grow faster, but it will help hair from further splitting down the hair shaft.

- To further protect your hair from the sun’s harmful rays, try physically covering your hair with a hat.
- Air-drying your hair is a great option to give your hair a break from the heat.
- Always be gentle while rubbing the towel through your hair. A vigorous shake with the towel on your damp hair could cause make it brittle and breakable.
- Super-hot water can damage your hair by opening up the cuticle of the hair, making it lose moisture. So turn the geyser down or stick to lukewarm water.
