Save the shampoo
You may think it’s gross to not wash your hair every day,
but limiting washing to at least every other day will really help your hair
grow long in a short amount of time. When you wash your hair too often, the
natural oils are rinsed away. These oils are essential for healthy hair, so
without them your strands become dry and weak—eep! For those of you whose hair
tends to get grimy and greasy, check out dry shampoo. It works great for all
hair colors, and leaves your hair looking fab.

Say buh-bye to heat
During the spring and summer months, it’s a lot more
convenient for you to rock your natural hair. Plus, using too much heat on your
hair by straightening or curling can cause some major damage. To give your locks
a little life, try a texturizing spray. It will help achieve a beachy look
without the stress of heat.

Protect your locks
We know you love to hang by the pool when it’s warm, but
keep in mind that the chlorine could be taking a toll on your locks. To get
those harsh chemicals out of your hair, try this chlorine-removing shampoo. And
yep, you can sit pretty at your next salon appointment because your damaged
locks are no more. Score!

Take your vitamins
Vitamins are really great for your overall health. Head out
to your local drugstore and pick up some vitamins that specialize in and
promote healthy hair. These particular vitamins contain biotin, which will
leave your hair feeling stronger and healthier. It’s a win-win.

Ditch the brush
When it’s time to tame those tangles, opt for a wide-tooth
comb rather than a brush. Wide-tooth combs are a lot gentler on your hair, and
will help prevent breakage. After spritzing your fave leave–in conditioner, gather
your locks and work your way from the bottom up. Less breakage means less split
