7-8 hours of sleep every night is ideal. It’s during these hours when the body is in constant repair mode.

. Regular trims to help keep the ends of the hair stay the healthiest .⠀ See that Scrunchie on her wrist, yes this has a MASSIVE contribution! If Hannah was tieing her hair up with a ‘raw elastic’ hair band it would be causing damage, keep it healthy ladies and gents with softer hair ties! .
Above all, persistence and patience is key! If one day you decide you aren't going to use the correct products or/and tie your hair up with an abrasive hair tie - this could cause damage that is only repaired by cutting it off - and if the damage starts high up it will set you back on your hair journey!!
