Stay away from UV rays and heat
To prevent heat damage, avoid using heated styling tools or blow dry your hair all the time. If you need to get your ideal style with heated tool, spray a heat protectant spray before you begin styling. Always protect your hair from thermal damage, UV rays to reduce breakage.
Eat for healthy hair
Foods like salmon, avocado, walnuts, sweet potatoes, eggs, Greek yogurt and blueberries deliver essential nutrition for healthy hair and skin. If you like to go green on your hair routine, you can also apply avocado, eggs and Greek yogurt directly to your hair as a masque.

Some women think a tight ponytail gives them a free facelift, but too-tight ponytails can have effects on your skin in the form of dryness around the scalp and hairline.
