If you have strong hair it means you can take risk of experimenting with your hair in terms of coloring, styling, etc. Strong hairs break less and remain in the growth period for a longer time.
It takes much patience and a little hard work in achieving healthy and beautiful hair.
Never put stress on hair for a very long period. For example, if you have to maintain a tight bun, keep your hair tied in a ponytail to braid them tight then make sure that you set your hair free as and when possible.
This will allow the follicles to relax and regain strength. But avoid sleeping with your hair open. They are more susceptible to breakage.
Use hair care product only as per the type of your hair. Market is flooded with hair care product for hairs which have been given certain treatment.
Never comb your hair when they are wet. Apply very small amount of non-sticky hair oil to wet hair. The oil will coat the hairs and protect them from damage due to sunlight.
Always keep your hair clean.
