1. Change your parting or tie your tresses into a bun

Instead of blow drying your hair to make you look sane enough to go about your day, try to change your parting or shape it into sections instead. The oil on your scalp tends to settle on your regular parting, which tends to give you flat hair. Thus, by switching up your parting, it’ll give your tresses more volume, and refresh your hairdo. Use a hair straightener or curler, for stubborn areas. If all else fails, tie your hair into a bun – a high bun for a professional look, while a low bun for a more casual look.

2. Preserve your hair at night
It’s important to keep your hair healthy and strong, by applying hair masks or oil to moisturize your scalp and strengthen your hair – advisable to do so once every two weeks. For hair oil, opt for coconut oil as it promotes hair growth by getting deep into your hair follicles. Furthermore, it also helps your hair shine, prevents hair breakage and split ends.
