1. Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel.

Your hair is at its weakest when it’s wet, so it’s more prone to breakage. Gently squeeze excess water out instead of rubbing your hair with a towel. This will help prevent split ends and damage.  

2. Wash your hair regularly.

While some say that frequent washing is not good for your hair, it’s a must if you live in a hot and humid country like the Philippines. After all, you sweat a lot and are often exposed to pollution! Plus, thanks to the weather, your hair also tends to get oily that dirt easily sticks to it. When sweat, oil, and dirt accumulate on your scalp, it can result in dandruff. Beautiful hair doesn’t exactly have flakes falling down from it, so wash, wash, wash!

Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo

 

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair dandruff-free with shampoo that nourishes and hydrates the scalp so it’s fresh and healthy. Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo, formulated with Nutrium 10 and Fresh Sakura Fragrance, is a great pick; it helps to activate the scalp’s natural protection layer, while keeping your hair fresh and fragrant.

3. Go easy on hairstyling products.

You don’t always have to use hairstyling products for your hair to look good. Sometimes, all it takes is proper hair care and management. When you have clean hair that’s fragrant and neatly combed, you’re good to go! However, if you really have to use hairspray, gel, wax, or mousse, you might want to consider limiting your usage to once every two days. Doing so will give your hair days off and allow your strands to breathe and relax.

4. Avoid using hairstyling tools too often

As much as curling iron, blow dryer, and flat iron help us get gorgeous hair, they also damage it. Frequent exposure to high temperature makes hair dry and brittle so it looks dull, so if you’re just going to the supermarket, maybe you can skip the flat iron.

TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist

Editor’s tip: If you really must, make sure you prep your locks by applying heat protectant, like the TONI&GUY Heat Protection Mist, to keep your strands from getting damaged.

5. Massage your scalp when you shampoo

Massaging your scalp will help your locks absorb the shampoo’s nutrients better. It also helps strengthen your hair’s roots.

6. Rinse your hair with cold water.

Rinsing your hair with cold water will seal in the nutrients from the shampoo. This will make your mane soft, smooth, and healthy–the very characteristics of beautiful hair.
