Shampoo as regularly as required
Keeping dandruff and flakes off your scalp can be done by washing your hair and scalp regularly, but experts warn against too much washing, because it can wipe essential oils off the scalp. Wash your hair three times a week. This would help prevent overproduction of sebum. Straight hair should be washed more often. Always massage the scalp when shampooing, and do invest in a quality shampoo. Opt for botanical shampoos such as the ADV Nutrition Shampoo from PHS Hairscience keeps the scalp soft.
Use conditioners in the right way
Using a conditioner is imperative, if you have colored hair. The same is the case for curly hair. While applying, make sure you are putting it on the roots because this helps make the scalp greasy. To treat dryness, use a conditioning product that is oil based, for instance, the ADV Argan Oil Hair Mask. After shampooing, take a small amount and apply evenly on to your hair. Rinse after 10-15 minutes. Repeat this process thrice a week.

Treat your hair gently
Teasing, or backcombing your hair is a common styling tip. However even though it creates volume when styling, it ruins the hair texture. Also avoid using super tight hair ties and go with scrunchies which are gentler on your hair. Tight hair ties tend to pull your hair back real tight which increases friction, causing breakage.
