To prevent hair breakage, avoid damaging hair treatments with harsh chemicals or heat. Refrain from over-combing, tying your hair too tightly, and combing wet hair. Coconut oil, argan oil, and cupuassu seed butter can reduce protein loss and strengthen hair. Applying a protein-rich egg or banana hair mask can help too. A beeswax, castor oil, and olive oil balm can be a quick fix to seal split ends.
A dry scalp can be easily treated with simple home remedies. Apply natural oils like jojoba, coconut, argan, and olive oil to a damp scalp to help retain moisture. A weekly deep-conditioning hot oil treatment can also help keep moisture locked in. Honey, avocado, yogurt, and oatmeal can be used in conditioning masks. Use a humidifier and shower filter and avoid blow dryers and daily shampooing.
