1. Treatment Using Hot Oil
Try using hot oil messages. This is not only a remedy for hair breakage but also for dry hair as well as damaged one. Various natural oils such as olive, almond, castor, corn, lanolin and coconut oils are normally used. They are excellent in restoring moisture, which is essential in stopping breakage or brittleness. They are also a source of nourishment.
To use this treatment, you will warm about 4 tbsp on any of these oils, and massage your head, ensuring each hair has this oil, wrap it with a hot towel or shower cap to give the oil a chance to penetrate your scalp and hair deeply. Leave it overnight or rise after at least 20 minutes using normal shampoo and lukewarm water.
2. Remove Split or Dead Ends of Hair
Getting the split or dead ends trimmed is not counterproductive to growing hair. Rather it helps in growing your hair stronger and making it thick. The trick is just to get rid of split or dead ends only and not the whole chunks of hair. By trimming split ends you cut down the chances of your hair becoming dry and brittle and needing a full haircut.
The split ends when becoming out of control travels up your hair shaft, your hair then will either break or need a full haircut. Instead of getting into this mess, we advise you to act proactive and trim the bottom of the hair, about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of hair every three to four months. If you are growing hair remember to tell your hair stylist beforehand about it ask him to remove hair not more than a 1/2 inch.
When you are trimming your hair yourself, use the scissors that are sharp and are meant specifically for cutting / trimming hair.
3. Egg & Yogurt Hair Pack

- Crack an egg into it and mix well.

4. Use Coconut Oil Prior to Washing
Washing puts much stress and shrinks your hair, especially when water is evaporating from your hair. Coconut oil has been found to reduce this pressure, reduce split ends, breakages and gradual damage. Apply coconut oil before washing, especially the previous night to ensure it penetrated well and get maximum benefits.
5. Rinse With Tea
You may think of tea as a sore throat remedy, but you can also use it to give hair a natural shine. Use a quart of warm, unsweetened tea (freshly brewed or instant) as a final rinse after your regular shampoo. Tea can enhance hair color, so make sure to use a tea that works with your hair color. Blondes should use chamomile tea; black tea may darken their tresses. Brunettes should use black tea to enhance shine and enrich color.
