TRY A PRE-SHAMPOO TREATMENT
This is an extra step you can add to you washing routine that has major impact! Apply an oil to the hair before you plan on washing. Work the oil through dry hair and massage into the scalp. Let sit for 15 minutes, then shampoo and condition as normal. This will hydrate your hair and help seal in ends so that after washing, your hair will appear silkier and shinier.

SLEEP ON A SILK PILLOWCASE
Switching to silk pillowcases is one of the best ways to prevent breakage with the least amount of effort. Most pillowcases pull moisture from your hair and skin (including your expensive face creams) and cause friction while you sleep, resulting in frizz, breakage, and dry bedhead when you wake up in the morning. I suggest sleeping on The Hollywood Silk Solutions silk pillowcase because it’s more affordable than most silk pillowcases.

TAKE YOUR VITAMINS
I suggest taking OLLY Undeniable Beauty Gummy Vitamins regularly to promote healthy hair growth. They contain borage oil and biotin, enhancing hair health and growth. They also taste amazing, and after a couple months you’ll notice your strands growing super fast.
MASSAGE YOUR SCALP
Taking just 5 minutes every day or a couple extra minutes in the shower to massage your scalp can have a huge affect on your hair health. It increases circulation and stimulates hair follicles while releasing stress.
BRUSH YOUR HAIR
Just like the princesses do in movies! Use a boar bristle brush every night to brush hair carefully from roots to ends. This pulls the natural oils from your scalp, down through the length of the hair, resulting in shiny, healthier hair.

USE ONLY NON-DAMAGING HOT TOOLS
It’s a myth that the hotter the hot tool the better. When hair is heated to more than 365°, it blows out the cuticle layer of the hair, resulting in a dull appearance, frizz and breakage. If heat styling, stick to non damaging tools like ghd to avoid split ends and breakage.
LAY OFF THE BLEACH
Highlighting and beaching the hair is one of the fastest ways to cause breakage and that dreaded chemical haircut. Avoid hair color and stick to glosses if you’re trying to grow your hair long.
