Even if you’re in a hurry, make sure you thoroughly rinse your hair after washing it. If you don’t, shampoo and conditioner residue might build up on your scalp and hair, leaving your strands dull and rough. And when you’re rinsing your hair, use cold water to seal your cuticles. This can help give you shiny and smooth hair.

4. Brush your hair before going to sleep.

If you’re not into the habit of washing your hair before you go to bed, brush it gently to remove trapped dirt and dust. Remember to brush the tips first to detangle your hair before you go up and start brushing from the roots.

5. Wait for your hair to dry before tying it.

Because your hair is at its weakest when wet, brushing, tying, or braiding it can stress your strands so much, making them prone to breakage. After washing your hair, it’s best to leave it down and let it air dry. If you need to detangle it, use a wide-tooth comb instead of a hairbrush. You can blow-dry your hair when it’s half-damp but do it less frequently, as heat-styling can damage your hair.

By following these simple hair care tips, you can get smooth hair that also stays fragrant all day. And remember to use products that protect your hair from heat, humidity, pollution, and other factors that can make it frizzy, rough, weak, and prone to damage.
