For the best results, apply conditioner to your wet hair before you comb through it. Be sure to only use a wide toothed comb so as to not cause any damage.

Try to use your hair dryer very often. Exposing your hair to the excessive heat of a blow dryer may seriously damage your it, so let it air dry whenever possible. If you use a blow dryer, keep it on the cool setting, and don’t hold it over the same spot of hair for very long. Also, for the quickest drying, dry your hair with a towel prior to finishing it off with a dryer.
When you are drying your hair, refrain from staying in the same spot for a long period of time. This can essentially burn your hair and leave your strands very weak and fragile. Move your hair dryer back and forth and keep it away from your scalp to maintain hair health.
When conditioning your hair, spread it evenly throughout so that all parts are conditioned equally. Make sure that you don’t rinse out the conditioner before it has a chance to work; leave it in for several minutes at least.
If you have dandruff, try using a mild shampoo. Wash your hair as often as possible and make sure that you massage your scalp. If this does not work, get an anti-dandruff shampoo. You should also look for bad habits you should get rid of, such as, not getting enough sleep.
