Filter your water.
Depending on the area you live, your water might carry chemicals like chlorine, which can cause dry, brittle hair and skin. Even if your water isn't chlorinated, it can still contain minerals that latch on to your skin and hair, causing buildup, dryness, and irritation. Also, hard water makes it harder for soap products to foam, which means you use more product and spend longer trying to rinse it out.

Towels tend to absorb too much moisture from your hair, which can lead to frizz. A T-Shirt, on the other hand, can help remove excess water and leave your hair feeling a lot smoother.
