The best way to reduce breakage, maintain the hairs moisture and PH levels and promote hair
growth is by doing and avoiding the following things:
Stop Shrinkage & Damage
One of the best ways to avoid shrinkage and maintain the hairs moisture is to use a hair diffuser.
If you are wearing a curly style and want to avoid a lot of shrinkage a diffuser helps to gently dry
the hair but still maintains the hairs length while it is wet.
Detangle the Hair – always handle your hair with care. Never pull or tug on the hair especially
when it’s wet. If your hair is tangles take one hair at a time and slowly and gently pull the hair so
it slides smoothly out of the tangle. If you get too impatient and pull the hair it can easily tear
causing unnecessary breakage. Detangle gently from the ends upward using the fingers first
followed by a wide-tooth comb. An excellent detangler is Infusium 23 or Terax Crema
