Whether you use shampoo,color conditioner or treatment:
Rinse your hair with plenty of water and make sure the water is not too hot because excess heat may cause dryness.
Rinse shampoo out of your hair thoroughly and wash and condition it well after swimming in a chlorine filled pool.
Use an oil sheen and spray on your roots and braids to keep them from drying out. And remember, most oil sheens give your hair a healthy and glowing look.
Get your hair trimmed at least every three months to prevent split ends from damaging the balance of the hair shaft.

Certain elaborate hair treatments were reserved for ceremonial occasions such as weddings.
