HEAT IS FOR OCCASIONS
Blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons play a vital role in damaging your hair. Excessive use can stamp out the natural moisturizers, shine, and strength and also cause split end problems leading to extra frizziness.
There are numerous long-term disadvantages of using heat on your hair every day. Therefore, let your hair dry naturally as much as you can. Preserve the heat for occasions.
FOR THAT EXTRA MOISTURE
Oiling is a traditional and ancient way to keep your hair beautiful and nourished. Coconut oil and Aloe vera gel can do wonders for your hair. Don’t go too much into your roots and instead focus more on the outer ends. Do this half an before you hop into the shower. Even Ayurvedic oils which are readily available in the market promote blood circulation and strengthen your hair.
PICK YOUR STYLIST
Grab your beauty salon directory and look out for a stylist to give your thick hair the texture and depth suitable for your face type. Styling matters a lot and surprisingly reduces the majority of the hair problems. Try going for short hairstyles. Shoulder length heatless beachy waves are quite a trend.

Ensure that your products are distributed evenly, especially while conditioning put in extra time to massage it properly at the ends. Products infused with Shea butter and jojoba oil work wonders. Conditioners and dry shampoo should be your main essentials.
Never settle for cheap hair styling tools. Thick hair needs boar bristle brush to shoo away all those tangles. Invest in high powered blow dryer because the cheap ones can rip off excess moisture.
Follow a thorough bedtime routine. Never sleep with wet hair as that would make it difficult to handle in the morning. And for more luscious ‘morning hair’ braid them just before you slide into your cozy blanket. The best trick is to use a silk pillow cover to get that perfect morning shine.
Essentially, emphasize on your eating habits because of that hair follicles need nutrition, and they love vitamins the most. Eat your fruits and veggies and don’t skip your meal. You don’t have to be all fancy; a banana is as good as a pomegranate. However, there are vitamin supplements available in the market, but they aren’t as efficient as eating a fruit infused with the vitamin. Stay natural.
