Healthy hair grows the best.
- Eat healthy
- Cut off all damaged hair because damaged split end hair will not grow and will only continue to get worse by causing excessive dryness and hair to fall out and will highly affect healthy hair. Despite products known to "cure split ends" only hide the damage.
- Get hair trimmed every month to prevent damage
- Avoid using heat, if you must make sure to use heat protecter. It's best to use ceramic hair rollers for styling.
- Use all natural shampoo (or atleast a sulfate free one it makes curly hair dry), rinse out conditioner,deep conditioner and leave in conditioner (essential for coarse hair). Don't use any chemicals. Purchase all natural products at health food stores or you could just try Burt's Bee's.
- I know it sounds gross but curly hair only needs to be shampooed once a week since it's less oily than straight hair. If you wash curly hair everyday it becomes dry.
- Try not to swim but if you have to apply a deep conditioner and slip a long hair swim cap to protect it from harsh chemicals. In addition whenever your in the sun via it winter or summer, tie your hair up in a ponytail and cover it with a silk scarf
- Only use scrunchies to tie up hair avoid rubber bands, velcro, springs, metal barretes, sharp rough edges, plastic combs, hair claws, metal, etc
- To prevent bald spots avoid tight hairstyles like braids and tight buns/ponytails at all costs
- Eat healthy, try a multi-vitamin
- Air dry wet hair, be gentle wet hair is delicate. Don't brush wet hair, use a wide toothed comb.
- Before shampooing comb your hair using a wide toothed comb, choose a comb that is molded or has smooth seams (use a bit of sand paper to smooth rough seams if necessary). Comb your hair often throughout the day to detangle it. Work in small sections, always starting close to the ends, combing down in long, smooth strokes until all tangles are removed, and then starting the next set of strokes higher on the same section of hair. Knots are very hard on your hair and it's best to avoid them at all costs. Tiny knots that absolutely cannot be removed by any other means should be cut from your hair, not torn. After the knots have been removed, using a high-quality, smooth wood pin brush remove loose hairs, which will also cut down on knotting during shampooing (not to mention keeping your shower drain clean and your plumber at bay.)
- Don't pile your hair on your head when you wash it, that's just asking for knots. Apply shampoo only to the roots and wash your scalp, then work the shampoo to the ends. You may find adding a bit of water to your shampoo or very quickly ducking under the shower spray after initially applying it to your hair will increase lathering significantly, making it easier to work the soap to the ends of your tresses. When you apply conditioner, work it through to the ends of your hair, smoothing and detangling gently with your fingers as you go. Continue smoothing your hair as you rinse. This will make combing your wet hair much easier and less likely to tear.

- At night tie hair up and wear a satin night cap
- Moisture hair daily with almond oil.
