Most of the time the very basic reason for stunted hair growth could be an improper, nutritionally deficient diet. Make sure you eat fresh and healthy cooked food with a variety of vegetables, nuts, eggs, and seafood.

16. A big No to super-hot water baths!
Although hot water baths calm your senses and make you feel relaxed but super hot water is a big no-no for the health of your hair. Eventually, it weakens your hair, making it dry and brittle.
17. No towel twisting your hair.
Most of us are habitual to twist the hair up into a towel after stepping out of the shower. But doing so may break your hair strands as wet hair is delicate to handle.
18.Make a wide-toothed comb, your best friend!
Fed up of those tangled locks? Invest in a wide-toothed comb as it helps to detangle your hair easily especially post-shower when your hair is wet and fragile.
19. Switch ponytails into loose buns
While you’re home quarantine twist your hair into loose buns instead of ponytails. With a tight ponytail, you may snap out a few hair strands.
20. Stay away from heat styling
Now that you are not stepping out of your house, stay away from heat styling your hair. When using a curling or straightening iron your hair’s hydrogen bonds may damage and break the hair follicles.

This period could be the right time for you to grab some good sleep. At least sleep for 8 hours straight to avoid the adverse effects on hair.
