6. Take care with heat

A fresh blowout is always a good idea, but its consequences are not. If you'll subject your hair to heat, you'll have to do it smartly in order not to damage your hair. Make sure to tell your hair dresser to lower the heat settings to avoid burning your hair ends. If you're straightening your hair at home, make sure to go easy on your hair locks, to avoid the burning smell.

7. Lemon juice

Of course lemon juice can combat a bad flu, but its benefits are way more than that! If you apply some lemon juice on your hair then rinse it before you get out of the shower, your hair will smell great for days.

8. Rose water
