    Make sure to shower every morning or night. People like people who smell good. Think about the last time you exercised and didn't shower. It doesn't feel very good, does it? Shower everyday, but do not wash your hair every day. This will cause your hair to become brittle and dry, even if you do use a conditioner. Wash your body, though.

    Pick a good Shampoo/Conditioner set. Ask hair stylists, beauty store employees, or friends with your same type of hair (thick/thin, curly/wavy/straight) to find something ideal for your hair. Don't spend too much money on salon brands, though, they really aren't that different to the store brands.

    Brush your hair with a paddle brush. Start at the bottom of your locks, and work your way up. If you have curly hair, use a pick. Even if they look as if they are for Afros but honestly they are great for getting tangles out and reducing frizz.
