In a recent study by British scientists, it was revealed that the secret to amazing hair is actually very simple. How to fix frizzy silk press?
It turns out that all you need to do for gorgeous and healthy hair is to wash it. The team at the School of Biological Sciences at Oxford University found that when people washed their hair once a day, it retained more moisture and became shinier.
So give your hair a good scrub down every day with these five ingredients: soap, water, shampoo (or conditioner), comb/brush and towel.
Washing your hair with soap leaves it clean, healthy and shining.
You should always make sure that you get wet hair when washing it. Why? Because water is a powerful lubricant and makes the job of cleaning your hair much easier.
Washing your hair with shampoo/conditioner may seem superfluous, but it actually works wonders on your tresses. It keeps them from getting oily and helps reduce dandruff to make them soft, smooth and shiny.
These are essential for making your hair look shiny and clean; with a comb you can remove even the tiniest of hairs, without rubbing too hard.
This one’s obviously obvious, but wiping the excess water off your hair after you’ve finished washing it is a good way of making it shiny, smooth and soft.
That’s how to get the most out of your shower. But there is one thing that can make it even better: give your hair some TLC!

6. How to Make Hair Grow Faster
You probably do not believe this but, if you follow these steps, you will have longer hair in just 1 week!
Step 1 – Wash your hair with 3% hydrogen peroxide. You can use it daily. It will help to destroy the bacteria and it will also assist in removing any chemical deposits that may be stuck in the scalp skin.
Step 2 – Take a quarter cup of apple cider vinegar and mix it into one cup of water. Use this solution as your final rinse. Apple cider vinegar can boost blood circulation and also prevent hair loss, while at the same time adding luster to your hair and keeping it conditioned. It also revives your hair, adding volume and shine that you might have lost.
Step 3 – Take one teaspoon of olive oil and mix it into one cup of water. Rinse with this solution as well.

8. How to Get Your Hair Out of Braids
If you’ve ever had braids or dreads, then you know that getting your hair out of them can be a nightmare. It has a tendency to pull and hurt, especially if they’ve been in for a while. The secret is patience, and knowing how to get your hair out properly!
Step 1 – Remove the rubber bands!
Try and gently comb through your hair before removing the rubber bands. If you can do this without hurting yourself too much, then that is good enough. But otherwise use a knife or pair of scissors. If you are going to use scissors, then gently comb through your hair first and make sure all the braids are separated.
Step 2 – Run a comb through your hair to make the braid loops release, and then remove each loop in turn.
Step 3 – This will only work if the braid is fairly loose! The process of pulling at it too tightly or roughly can damage the hair and make it break off. If you have braids tight enough that they will not come out without ripping them, then simply take some scissors and start cutting them apart from the base until they release from each other.
9. How to Get Rid of Dandruff
Dandruff is caused by a fungus that gets into your pores and feeds off the dead skin cells. It can cause your scalp to itch and you might even get red sores in the process. The best way to get rid of it is with prevention.
1/2 cup coconut milk
2 tablespoons nitratine (you can buy it at any pharmacy)
Mix together the coconut milk, nitratine and honey to make a nice, malleable paste. Then rub it gently into your hair and leave on for 20 minutes before washing it off. Repeat whenever you feel an outbreak of dandruff coming on!
