If your hair is turning green from too much chlorine, rinse it with tomato juice, then a final rinse of water.
Remove static or the flyaways from your hair with hairspray – sprayed on your brush instead of your hair. Brushing the hairspray through your hair will make it manageable but not stiff.
An ionic hair dryer dries your hair much faster (which causes less damage) yet is still gentler to hair than the old-fashioned dryers.
Do not blow dry your hair when it is soaking wet. Heat on wet hair leaves your hair looking dull. Let the hair dry partly first.
All clarifying shampoos and most dandruff shampoos will remove artificial hair color.
Use clarifying shampoo occasionally to remove hair color build-up that weighs hair down.
The right hair conditioner makes all the difference. Thin or fine hair will just cling to your head and look flat with no conditioner at all. A regular conditioner will eliminate the static but still weigh your hair down. Fine or thin hair needs a light conditioner to be its fullest. Conditioner also makes any hair so much easier to comb.
With any condition except one for dandruff, try to use it on your hair but not your scalp. This will allow for fuller hair at the roots.
When drying your hair, use a towel to blot it dry instead of rubbing or wringing, in order to prevent breakage.
Hair is damaged less when using a brush only when it is wet or damp.
Tangles in very curly hair should be combed out when the hair is wet. Combing again after it has dried can make it frizzy and too full.
Curl your hair for instant “highlights” since curls catch the light from many more angles than straight hair.
Roots that are darker or lighter after coloring hair are less visible if your part is not perfectly straight. The zig-zag part is not necessary, just keep it messy.
