Indirectly it affects the texture, including the shine, volume and softness. Eliminating split ends reduces the possibility of hair fall and breakage. Go for hair trimming at least once in 3 to 4 months.
- Avoid dyeing into lighter shades
When your hair is subjected to dyeing into a lighter shade such as copper brown or golden brown, the cuticle of the hair is ruptured due to the bleaching effect. This can lead into excessive breakage and split ends. Moreover, if proper care is not taken in the post dyeing phase, you might even lose half of your hair volume! So avoid going blone, if possible! Your hair can grow faster if you subject your hair to the least possible number of chemical treatments, be it coloring or heating.

Start at the scalp, preferably using a boar bristle brush. Distribute your scalp’s oils uniformly onto your hair. This step keeps your hair naturally moisturized. It also increases the blood circulation inside your scalp and increases your hair growth. Do the brushing gently. Avoid brushing your hair when in a rush or when in a bad mood! Keep calm and then brush your hair!

But, do not make it a habit to use these tools frequently. It might give you the pleasure of looking fabulous for the time being, but it actually damages your natural hair massively. Even if you are in a profession that requires you to heat your hair every now and then, make sure to heat at the least possible temperature. Use a heat protectant before subjecting the hair to heat. Excessive damage caused due to heat can include hair breakage and extreme frizz.

Make sure to brush your entire hair, only when dry. Wetting stretches your hair. If you comb on top of that with all your might, there can be a considerable extent of hair shedding. Also, brush your hair gently, from the ends, work your way up. Brush even the inner layers of your hair body since most of the tangles and knots form in the inner layers.
