For hat hair: Tie a silk scarf underneath that snug beanie. The fluid fabric minimizes flyaway-causing friction and static. Your tresses will thank you upon taking it off.

For air-drying curls: Don’t step into the freezing cold with wet locks. Style curly hair into four loose buns to dry overnight. Put one on each side of your head, twisting the bun away from your face. Then wrap two more on the crown of your head.

For split ends: Mix three tablespoons olive oil with two tablespoons raw honey for a nourishing hair mask. Apply post-shampoo, leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, rinse, and re-shampoo. Bye, damaged strands and flaky scalp.
