3. Steam your hair
Steaming your hair every now and again is a good way to get your cuticles to open and for moisture to be absorbed.
A good way to do this is to use a steaming cap. They are fairly inexpensive and will make the world of difference to how your hair grows in the future.
When you apply heat to your hair the cuticles will naturally lift making it easier for moisture to be absorbed into the hair strand. (Source: curlsandcocoa.com)
