1. Avoid Blow-Drying Your Hair
Blow-drying your hair after a shower makes sense, and while it’s tempting to do so on second-day hair, the heat may damaging for your hair. As your hair is already dry, putting on extra heat will weaken your hair follicles and may lead to hair loss.

2. Apply Hair Serums and Oils – Argan or Aloe Vera Oils

Look and feel fresh by applying hair serums or oils. Do remember to slightly wet your hair before applying the hair serums. You may consider argan or aloe vera oils as they are rich in Vitamin E. The serum helps reduce frizz and refine your natural curls while adding shine to your hair.

Get hair serums from Strawberrynet or Foreo SG.

3. Change your Parting or Tie your Hair into a Bun

Instead of blow-drying your hair to make you look sane enough to go about your day, 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. 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. Do a high bun for a professional look, while a low bun for a more casual look.
