1. Use Dryer Sheets to Get Rid of Hair Static 

This secret is one of our favorites! Hair static can drive you crazy. Gently rub a dryer sheet on your hair and voila~ The static is gone!


2. Brush Your Hair from the Bottom Up


Don’t brush from the roots, brush from the tips of your hair up. This will ensure less hair loss and avoid the extra breakage.


3. Never Wear a Hair Tie in Wet Hair UNLESS...

it is a PRO Hair Tie. Pulling your wet fragile hair to remove a standard hair tie is putting your hair in extreme danger of being pulled from the roots or breaking as hair is much weaker when it is wet. Waterproof PRO Hair Ties solve that problem.



4. Avoid Conditioner on Your Roots

Conditioner on your roots is a big no-no. Conditioning your roots, can make your hair oily and flat, taking away from the natural process and makes your hair heavier.


5. Wear a Hat to Protect your Strands from the Sun!

Most people don’t know this but the UV rays from the sun can cause some serious damage and weaken your hair. Stay covered to protect your strands!


6. Brush Your Hair Before You Shower

Since wet hair is more fragile, brush your hair before the shower to avoid the breakage from brushing when wet.  


7. Use Aspirin to Help Repair Your Hair

This might sound weird but Aspirin contains acetylsalicylic acid, which has some serious benefits for hair. This acid helps deep clean and remove dead cells and grease from your scalp, making it easier for your follicles to transfer oxygen. Smash one aspirin and apply the dust to your standard shampoo amount and mix it together and you are set!


8. 
Wear a Correctly Sized Hair Tie

Every hair thickness is not the same, so your hair tie's size being customizable is super important. Customizing the size will make sure you are not adding too much excessive pressure that can cause damage or breakage in the shaft. A custom-sized hair tie will give you the perfect, secure -- but not too tight -- hold without the damage.



9. Brush Down Baby Hairs with a Toothbrush

Annoyed by those fly-aways? Spray a toothbrush or eyebrow brush with hairspray and brush down in the specific area. 


10. Don’t Wash Your Hair Everyday

By washing your hair everyday you are stripping your hair of its natural oils, and can make your hair dry and more prone to breakage. So if you can try to wash your hair at most every other day. 


11. Air Dry Your Hair or Lowest Heat Setting

Before you decide to style or blow-dry, let your hair air dry so that you don’t overheat your hair and cause heat damage or with the lowest temperature setting on your blow-dryer.


12. For Dry, Damaged Hair - Try a Hair Mask
It is essentially a face mask, but for your hair! These are great for heat-damaged or sun-damaged or hair in need of some deep conditioning.


13. Eat Protein Rich Foods

Protein is essential for hair growth! Eating foods that are rich in protein will make your hair softer and healthier. 


14. Use Easy-Release Hair Ties to Prevent Breakageor Hair Loss

Traditional hair ties can pull on your strands, and cause extra hair loss. Trade in the old for the new, and use alternative hair ties, like a PRO Hair Tie to avoid the hair loss and damage.

  


15. Use Natural Oils

When in doubt, use the oils you have right at home like olive oil, and coconut oil to give you extra conditioning and shine. Apply to your tips pre-shower and then rinse out. 

16. Trim Your Hair Regularly

In order to keep your hair healthy and growing, trim regularly to get rid of your dead, and split ends!

 

17. Wash Your Hair With Lukewarm Water

Hot water can actually strip your essential oils, leaving it feeling drier and duller, so try not to use hot water when you wash your hair.  



18. Always Rinse Out Products Well


Wash out your hair thoroughly. Leaving in shampoo or conditioner can cause your hair to be oily and make it harder to produce their natural oils.





19. Use Heat Protecting Products


Before blow-drying or hair styling, apply a heat protecting oil to your roots. This will protect your hair from burning and drying out.





20. Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase


Sleeping on a silk pillowcase reduces friction, meaning less breakage and damage to your hair.





21. Use Dry Shampoo


When your hair is feeling oily, apply dry shampoo to your roots and it will feel fresh as new. This will help you avoid washing your hair everyday and the oils will learn to balance themselves out.






22. Avoid the Coloring


Using coloring on your hair, especially bleaching your hair, will cause massive amounts of damage and weaken the hair causing breakage. Wear your natural color like the model you are!





23. Use a Wide Tooth Comb on Wet Hair


Wet Hair is more fragile and needs some extra care. Wide tooth combs are more gentle on your hair and won’t over pull on your strands -- a better idea is to wait for your hair to dry, then brush or comb.






24. Make Sure to Use Shampoo for More Than 1 Minute to Activate


Be sure you are washing your hair thoroughly. You want to wash out all the dirt and dust build-up and get your hair clean so wash for at least 1 minute into your scalp and strands.









25. Clean your Hair Brush


Don’t add extra dirt and dust to hair, clean your hairbrush and switch it out every once and awhile.



26. Avoid Using Cloth or Fabric Hair Ties
Wearing cloth or fabric hair ties are similar to wearing dirty clothes day after day. They hold bacteria and odors from sweat, water, or from not replacing or washing them soon enough. Don't believe us? Smell that scrunchie you have used for months.. We suggest using a PRO Hair Tie that is 100% silicone and won't hold any bacteria and can easily be cleaned and dried in seconds, not hours!


27. Use a Flat Iron Upwards to Add More Volume

Get added volume to your hair by styling it upwards instead of down flat. It’ll give you the ultimate voluminous look effortlessly.


28. Twist Your Hair for Natural Beach Waves

Twist your hair while it’s drying to get wavy hair without using a hair curler. Also cuts out the extra heat damage from a wand or hair curler.



29. Don’t Leave Tight Braids in Too Long

Tight braids are super cute, but don’t leave them in for too long and definitely don’t sleep with them. They can cause your hair to break and get pulled from the roots due to the constant pressure.


30. Avoid Teasing your Hair

Teasing your hair breaks the hair follicles and is just overall not healthy for your roots. If you want to add extra volume, turn to products or styling your hair upwards as an alternative.


31. Don’t Overuse Products

Let's also remember not to over do it. Using products can be great but putting too much product in your hair can do the opposite of what you want. Overuse of products makes your hair heavy, oily and flat.


32. Use Eggs to Make Hair Silky & Smooth

Yeah sounds weird right? But the eggs help feed the protein in your hair! Mix one egg with a small amount of shampoo, apply five minutes, and rinse out!


33. Use Tea Tree Oil to Treat Dandruff

Tea Tree oil has anti-fungal properties that fight off dandruff and help moisturize the scalp by clearing blocked pores and preventing dryness.


34. Drink Water & Stay Hydrated

Being dehydrated immediately stops hair growth! So drink plenty of water if you want to increase strength and growth.


35. Monitor your Hair Loss

We all lose a bunch of hair per day, but how much is too much? Monitor the amount of hair you lose per day to know if you are over the average of 50-100 strands a day. If you are losing more there might be a reason, and it's better to know and fix the problem earlier rather than later.


36. For Natural Made Highlights Use Lemon Juice

Add lemon juice to any parts of your hair that you want to lighten, and then step into the sun! But remember not to soak your hair, use a spray bottle so you don’t over burn your strands. It will naturally lighten your hair for sun-kissed highlights.


37. Eat Foods Rich in Omega-3

Omega-3 is rich in fish oil which helps open up hair follicles and increases growth. So to help your hair grow don’t miss out on eating up food that are high in Omega-3.


38. Avoid Wearing Your Ponytail in the Same Spot
Wearing your ponytail in the same place every time can a weak point in the hair shaft where the hair tie is located. Use a Non-Damaging PRO Hair Tie to avoid the normal pressure caused by normal ponytails, but still get a secure hold and also try wearing your hair tie in different places each day!



39. Wear a Sleek Up-Do on An Oily Hair Day

Like we said it’s not good to wash your hair everyday, so our natural hair oil has a chance to balance itself out. Since it could get oily up there, rock a stylish sleek up-do on those oilier days.


40. Use Leave-in Conditioner in your Hair Before the Pool/Beach

Salt and Chlorine can make your hair extra dry! So before you take a dip apply some leave-in conditioner or even a hair mask to keep your hair moisturized and smooth.


41. Use Cornstarch as a DIY Dry Shampoo

Don’t have dry shampoo on hand? Create your own with Cornstarch. Just rub it into your hair and see how it instantly soaks up that unwanted grease. It’s also great for adding volume and texture.


42. Use Dish Soap to Tone Down your Hair Color

If you just colored your hair and are not a fan, dish soap is a great remedy to tone it down! It’s strong detergent works well to strip away the unwanted color.


43. Use Tomato Juice to Vamp up your Blonde

Those of us who color our hair blonde know, especially in those summer months, that the blonde can start to get the greenish tint we all fear. Luckily tomato juice or even ketchup does the trick to get the blonde back to the yellow tone we had before! Just apply to your hair, leave on like a mask and rinse out! You’ll thank us later.


44. Heat-less Curls with (Clean) Socks

Want to avoid heat damage from curling irons? Take a break from putting heat to your strands and instead twist damp hair around a sock. Once it's dry, let them lose and brush it out. This method creates the beach waves you want, without frying your hair.


45. Use a paper towel, or Cotton T-shirt to Dry Hair and Avoid the Frizz

We all traditionally dry our hair with a towel, but the towel material can cause some serious friction that isn’t good for our strands. Try something different, like drying your hair with a cotton T-shirt or softly pat it dry with a paper towel. Since it's more gentle it will decrease breakage and even tone down the frizz in your hair!


46. Clean your Hair Tools

Straighteners, hair curlers, and even your hair brush can build up dirt that gets transferred to your strands. We want to keep our hair follicles and strands clean to promote hair growth and strength. So make sure that you keep all your hair tools clean.


47. Don’t use your Hair Tools on Highest Heat Setting

Hair tools these days can get to extreme heat, which can be fine on certain parts of our hair, but it can also fry our strands which we want to avoid! If you can get the same hair style at a lower heat it’s preferred.


48. Use Infrared Hair Tools to Protect Your Hair

Infrared technology uses a gentler heat that uses negative ions to lock in moisturize and causes less damage, along with healthier, shinier hair. So if you can trade in your old tools for one that uses infrared technology.


49. Use a Honey + Banana Mask to Make Hair Extra Soft

Both banana and honey help nourish the scalp and prevent breakage and split ends, while making hair strong and shiny. Honey adds moisture and shine, while bananas potassium prevents and controls dandruff. So mix them up and add them as a hair mask to add some nourishment into your hair naturally.


50. Use Henna as Alternative Hair Dye

If you are looking to dye your hair darker, try an alternative like Henna instead of hair color. Henna is safe to use on hair and instead of causing damage it actually has natural properties that heals, conditions and rejuvenates your hair!
