2. Skip the Shampoo

Shampoo often contains harsh chemical sulfates that strip natural oils from the hair. Most people do not need to wash their hair every day. Tie hair up and cover it during daily baths or showers, and wash hair only two or three times per week. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and only lather hair near the scalp. The suds will flow down the rest of the hair shaft without lathering it. A cold water rinse after washing and conditioning hair causes the other layers of each hair to flatten. This prevents moisture loss and snags.
