Am I the only one that feels like coconut oil solves every problem? It's seriously the best. Before washing your hair, leave this in your hair for a minimum of 20 minutes. It will leave you with soft, nourished hair.

Doing this weekly really makes a difference. What's awesome about hair masks is that you can make your own. This hair mask recipe is so easy — all you need is one avocado, two eggs, one tablespoon of honey, and one tablespoon of coconut oil. Leave it in your hair for 20 minutes, and then rinse it out. How easy is that?

4. Avoid Washing Your Hair Everyday

Washing your hair every day is not a good idea because it removes the natural oils from your scalp. I know that your hair might look greasy, but try to wash your hair every other day. I know it might be hard for some, but please try for the sake of your locks!

You might get impatient and tired from brushing, but remember to keep going easy on your hair. Brush your hair when it's dry and use a flat paddle brush.

This is super luxurious, but this little trick makes a big difference. Cotton pillowcases create frizz and breakage. Sleeping on silk pillow cases will allow your hair to slide and not get matted.

Brushing your hair from the roots can cause damage. So remember to start from the bottom and work your way to the top. This is a much kinder way to untangle your strands.

Rubbing your wet hair with a towel is a big no-no. Rubbing your hair creates friction, weakens your hair strands, and causes frizz and dryness. Gently pat your hair with a towel instead. It takes some time getting used to this, but your hair will thank you.

Yes, I know that dry shampoo is pretty much a lifesaver, but applying too much can cause residue and buildup on your scalp. Spritz about 10 inches from your roots to distribute evenly and make it count without burdening your hair.

Taking a hot shower is pretty much life, but when you are washing your hair, avoid using hot water on it. Hot water will dry out your strands, create tangles, and cause breakage. Lukewarm or warm water will do a lot less damage.

Laying off the hot tools is the best if you want to keep your hair healthy, but it's hard to stay away from a straightener. Whenever you use a hot tool on your hair, remember to always use a heat protectant beforehand.
