It may be super easy to manage but there are still some golden rules to follow.
Most (if not all) shampoo ads feature a girl with long, straight, dark glossy and bouncy hair. In reality, does this ‘dream hair’ even exist? Well, yes — with lots of TLC and by using the right products.

1. DON’T SHAMPOO EVERY DAY
Sometimes you’ll mistake sebum as shine as it spreads from the scalp to the ends easily without anything to interrupt its path. To avoid oily-looking hair, shampoo every other day.
2. DO USE THE RIGHT SHAMPOO
Prevent hair from getting dry and tangled by using a shampoo formulated for your hair type and with a lower pH level.
3. DON’T OVER-TREAT YOUR HAIR WITH CHEMICALS
We’re talking about treatments like colouring, bleaching and straightening — they may weaken and stress your hair over time.
4. DO CHANGE YOUR HAIRSTYLE OFTEN
Avoid tying your hair at the same spot frequently if you don’t want to leave a bent mark. Use bobby pins instead.
