  1. Coconut, or jojoba oil can really work wonders on your hair strands and scalp. They strengthen your hair and stimulate hair growth giving a lovely texture to your hair. Slightly warm these oils and use them to gently massage on your scalp and ends.
  2. Avoid heat if possible. Excessive heat from blow-dryers, hot curlers, curling irons and flat irons can cause weak hair and breakage. Using a too-hot blow-dryer on wet hair heats the water remaining under the hair’s cuticle and causes it to expand inside the hair, leaving spaces--or blisters --inside fibers, which weakens hair.
  3. Replace fatty foods with vitamin rich foods like spinach, beans, broccoli, bell peppers, dark grapes, fish, strawberries, avocados, tomatoes, bananas, apricots, yogurt, soy, flaxseeds, nuts, and whole grains. You can also take vitamin supplements if you can’t eat right enough
  4. Olive oil. It causes your hair to stop looking opaque, by making it shiny and moisturizing it. In order to achieve this, just add two teaspoons of oil on dry hair before showering. It is important that you wear a shower cap so that the oil acts on your hair. In fact, the steam from the bath will also help the oil to better penetrate your entire scalp.
  5. Iron deficiency? If your diet is low on iron then you can suffer from hair loss that leads to thinning of hair. Include green and yellow vegetables in your diet and always snack on fruits instead of junk food.
  6. Prevent frizziness. When frizziness is apparent, keeping hair trimmed can help prevent further damage and stop the splits from traveling up the hair shaft. Using a keratin shampoo and conditioner can help restore protein to weak, damaged hair and help bring it back to good health.
  7. Comb properly. If your hair is weak and limp do not make the mistake of combing them wet. This will only make them weaker from your roots. Always use a wide toothed comb and work your way through hair tangles from your fingers and then use a comb on them.
  8. Use the right product. A good stylist can help you detect and diagnose weak hair, and make recommendations on appropriate product usage. Using the best products for weak hair is essential to restoring troubled tresses.
  9. Honey. Because of its nutrients, honey strengthens and gives your hair body. In this case, you can add a little bit of honey to your hair and spread it through it with your fingertips. If you would like, you can lightly massage it so that the honey soaks in deeper.
  10. Trim your hair. Your hair ends get the most abuse from the environment and from hot appliances. If your hair is breaking off near the ends, it’s probably a bunch of different lengths too. This is an opportunity to trim the ends , which will decrease the amount of breakage over time.
  11. Hydrate yourself. If your body is dehydrated, it will not be able to supply essential nutrients to your scalp and body. Drinking 8-10 glasses of water will go a long way in maintaining good quality of your hair.
  12. Frequently switch up your style. Change how you wear your hair every day: Wearing your hair down day after day can result in tangles and split ends. But ponytails,tight braids and dreadlocks can also stress tresses and cause weakening. Switch styles every day to avoid strain on weak hair and give your look a pick-me-up.
