1. USE A MILD SHAMPOO
If you are not the type of person who uses a lot of gunk and chemicals for your hair, you really are not in need of a shampoo that deeply cleanses. A perfect product to use would be a baby shampoo since it would less likely irritate your scalp.

2. USE A CONDITIONER
There are different kinds of conditioners for different types of hair. Use a conditioner to prevent further damage of your hair.

3. BE CAREFUL IN TOWEL – DRYING YOUR HAIR
Towel-drying will break the strands of the hair. Instead of scrubbing, blot your hair to dry.

4. COMB YOUR HAIR
Wet hair is fragile than dry hair. Use a wide-tooth combed to detangle your hair when wet.
