• be patient!
  • drink lots of water
  • take Omega 3s
    • e.g. salmon, avocado, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, mangoes, eggs, spinach, sweet potatoes
  • wash your hair as little as possible; use dry shampoo instead. This helps prevent oily scalp.
  • a few hours before washing your hair, apply coconut oil to approx. the bottom third of your hair. Make sure it is:
    • cold-pressed, extra virgin
  • or try olive oil, honey, mayonnaise, or an egg mask before washing.
  • when washing your hair, only apply shampoo to your roots.
    • try using conditioner only.
    • try using home remedies such as baking soda followed by apple cider vinegar.
  • when applying conditioner, apply it to the bottom two-thirds only.
  • don't ever brush your hair when wet.
  • use a hairbrush with plain bristles, not the ones with little balls on the end.
    • a wide-tooth comb is also good.
  • don't ever tease your hair.
  • don't use any heat tools: that includes hairdryers!
  • braid your hair before going to bed at night.
  • use a pillowcase made out of soft fabric such as satin to prevent snags and tangling.
  • if you notice any split ends, trim the ends to prevent them from getting worse.
  • when going swimming, use a swimming cap or don't let your head go underwater. If you get chlorine on your hair, wash it as soon as possible.

From here. I highly recommend watching the video for a lot more info!
