hair is normally a girl's best asset.

Normally, a girl would say her best asset is her hair, so here's a few general hair tips to help you along the way.

If you’re attempting to grow out your hair, get regular trims and use a leave-in conditioner to prevent breakage.

Every 2 weeks, clean your brushes by soaking them in warm, soapy water for a few minutes. Afterwards you are to rinse & air day the brushes. Remove any hair left in the brush before hand.

If you are prone to having dandruff, avoid scratching your head it causes more flakes and you may end up with wounds on your head caused by your fingernails. Shower away the sweat after exercising as sweat irritates skin and speeds up the flaking of the skin cells on your body.

If you have oily hair, make sure that the shampoo is thoroughly rinsed and forget conditioners unless you need it, apply a small amount to the ends of your hair. Try not to brush your hair too much either as it brings the oils from your scalp throughout your hair giving your hair the oily look.
For oily hair, use two tablespoons of white vinegar mixed with one cupful of water. Spray onto the hair and comb through. Rinse thoroughly afterwards.

To cleanse your hair of shampoo residue and other impurities, combine 1 cup of vinegar and 2 tablespoons of dried rosemary. Put the mixture in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds and leave to cool. Apply to hair after shampooing, leave on for 2 minutes and rinse out with cool water.
