- At the beginning of the washing process, it is preferred to use lukewarm water.
- End your shower by rinsing your hair with cold water. Rinse your hair thoroughly and make sure all shampoo, conditioner remaining have been entirely removed.
- Apply conditioner to the ends of your hair, not to the roots.

- Wrap your hair with a silky cloth to dry it out instead of using the hair dryer. This is a much healthier method for drying the hair. Refrain from using harmful chemicals and use natural ingredients such as natural oils and Aloe Vera.
- Make a habit to trim 1cm of your hair once every two months.
