Use a hat, scarf, or cap to cover your hair when you're outdoors, especially in areas with high pollution levels.
Washing your hair every day can strip away natural oils and make your hair more susceptible to damage. Aim to wash it every 2-3 days instead.
Incorporate a clarifying shampoo into your routine to remove build-up from pollution and styling products.
Limit the use of heated styling tools like straighteners and curlers, as they can cause further damage, especially when combined with pollution.
After conditioning, rinse your hair with cool or cold water. This helps to close the hair cuticles, making them less prone to damage.
Apply natural oils like coconut oil, argan oil, or jojoba oil to your hair. These oils act as a barrier against pollution.
Proper hydration and a diet rich in vitamins and minerals contribute to overall hair health.
