Hair Care For Damaged Hair
For hair to be healthy and manageable, they should be washed properly. Being too infrequent with washing or washing your hair too many times a week is both detrimental to the health of your hair.

Mask for damaged hair: One of the most common as well as most effective remedy for damaged hair is olive oil and apple cider vinegar. A tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, with 3 tablespoons olive oil and one egg white is needed for this mask. Mix well, and apply on hair for 45 minutes. Shampoo and rinse well with moderate temperature water.
Easy DIY mask for dry, brittle hair: Take one ripe avocado, and mix it with one tablespoon of soft butter. Apply it on hair, and wear a shower cap for an hour. Shampoo and rinse well. Use twice a week for shiny, silky hair.
Other than these tips, concentrate on deep cleaning your scalp as that is the place where dirt and oil builds up instead of the strands. Gently massage your scalp and rinse with lukewarm water instead of using water that is either too hot or too cold. Stay away from too much heat styling and air dry your hair. Also, never rub your hair vigorously. Rather, just take a soft towel and squeeze out all the excess water from them to prevent hair fall. Use a wide toothed comb to detangle wet hair.
