To stop your hair from drying out, you need to stop moisture leaking out of your hair and into the environment. One way to do this is to make sure your cuticle closes properly after you wash your hair.
Here's how you can do that:
If you are not using products of the same brand or line just get pH paper and ensure the conditioner you use is more acidic than the shampoo. The pH scale runs from 0 to 14; if the conditioner has a lower pH number than the shampoo, it's compatible.
What if the conditioner has a higher pH than the shampoo?
Remember, more moisture retention means your hair doesn't get dry and brittle. If your hair is not dry and brittle it is much less likely to break and you will retain more length.
