Heavy conditioners should never be used on hair that is fine or thinning. They will only wear down your hair making it look finer and thinner. Instead, opt for light conditioners to add volume without the ill effects of heavy conditioners.
Try to avoid using blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons as much as possible. Over-use of curling irons and blow dryers can damage your hair, which can lead to frizzy hair and split ends. It wise to give a hair a break, at times, and stay away from the heat.
Nevermind the old wives’ tale about more frequent trims causing your hair to grow faster. It doesn’t matter how much you cut it, hair grows at about half an inch a month. You can sometimes see faster growth with biotin supplements or in the summer; however, hormones, not scissors, control hair growth. Your hair may look better though by getting a trim to get rid of split ends.

After shampooing your hair, make sure you rinse it out with cool water. This stops the heat from stripping your hair of it’s natural moisture and promotes a lustrous sheen.
If you enjoy the look of your hair after a day in the ocean, you can buy products that can give your hair the same effect. Look for sprays that are labeled as “salt spray”. Consider making your own mixture by adding a teaspoon of salt to a full cup of water. If desired, you can also add lavender oil (ten drops) for a pleasant scent and moisturizing effect.
Target hairdressing products that contain more natural ingredients, when shopping. Use shampoo and conditioner that will work with your natural hair texture. Do not be afraid to explore different products and brands as you look for the formulation that works best with your hair type.
An easy do-it-yourself deep-conditioning treatment can get more moisture into your hair when it’s dried out. Apply a generous portion of conditioner to your wet hair. Then, wrap hair in a damp, warm towel or plastic wrap to hold in the heat. After 30 minutes, shampoo hair and rinse well.
