Avoid the hair dryer or any heat to get your hair done. That helps A LOT (:
Sigh. I know. I blowdry everyday because I don’t like how my hair looks when it air dries. But I’ve been really cutting back on the backcombing and volumizing powder, because that’s really rough on hair. I only backcomb once a week now, if that. I’ve just been wearing my hair long and straight and groovy.
