Firstly, one of the things that tend to damage hair is excessive heat so in order to maintain good hair, you must go for a style that does not require a lot to be done in between salon visits. Some healthy hairstyles are bone straight relaxed, curly and short crop hair. These are easy to maintain and do not require a lot of heat to style. For instance with a curly hair, all you have to do is shampoo and allow it to air dry. No heat required. If the hair is relaxed straight, you must make sure to shampoo it once a week or at least once every two weeks and also be sure to use a quality conditioner afterwards. This hair can be roller set and allowed to dry naturally without heat. You must also make sure to wrap it and wear a silk cap or wrap before going to bed.
Secondly, short cut crop hair can also be healthy if it is cut in layers or bluntly. This will require no heat to style. All that is required is a hair moisturizer and fingers or comb to style it.
