In order to prevent hair damage, try not to brush it when it is still wet. Wet hair is more easily damaged than dry hair. To prevent damage, you can brush your hair prior to showering, or let it dry for a little while and then comb it.
For finer hair and thinner hair, stay away from heavier conditioners. This will put excess weight on your hair, which will make it look even thinner and finer. The best conditioners to use for volume are mousse conditioners or leave-in conditioners.
Ease up on small appliances that you when styling your hair in order to restore and strengthen its condition. Over time, curling irons, flatirons and blow dryers can cause damage that leads to frizz and breakage. Now and then, let your hair rest by avoiding heated tools.

Nevermind the old wives’ tale about more frequent trims causing your hair to grow faster. Whether you trim or not, hair grows around a half inch per month. In the summertime, your hair may grow a bit faster, or biotin can help, but hormones, not scissors, ultimately determine the rate. Trims do eliminate split ends, though, which can make your hair look much better.
Damaging your hair is a real possibility when you blow dry it. Ditch high heat, and use the coolest setting on your hair dryer. Work out any knots using your fingers. This will keep you from causing damage to your locks when you brush them out after your hair is dry.
To avoid breakage caused by brittle or dry hair, it is imperative that you ensure your hair retains moisture. Using the correct temperature of water when you shampoo is important. Once you are done shampooing your hair, wash it out with cool water. This helps your hair shafts because it seals in the moisture.
Stay away from any hair products that have alcohol since they can cause dryness to your hair. Take some time to learn about the products you use, as they are not all good for you simply because they can be purchased in a store. Read labels of all the products you use in your hair.
