Treat wet hair with TLC. Your mane is most vulnerable right out of the shower, when it's saturated, says Ouidad, owner of the eponymous salon in New York City. Don't go near wet strands with a brush; instead, detangle gently with a wide-tooth comb such as Goody Ouchless Detangling Comb, $4.99, drugstores. African-American women's hair is especially prone to breakage. You can just use your fingers to style, Ouidad says.

Safeguard against heat. Apply a product that contains ingredients to protect against the heat of your blow-dryer or flat iron. Try Graham Webb Heat Response Soft Finish Spray, $19.95, grahamwebb.com for locations.
