Washing:

Keep hair clean.  Hair tangles with dirt and sweat build up, shampoo your hair after exercising, swimming, etc. Comb or brush your hair before shampooing.  Shampoo your hair in a downward motion (not a vigorous rub!).  Good quality shampoos and conditioners to use are Moroccan Oil Nutrient Rich Hydrating shampoo and conditioner (more pricey) or Dove Daily Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner (less pricey). A great hydrating mask is the Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask and can be used on the hair when its colored or when you feel the hair needs more "love."

Styling:

When brushing use a paddle brush or wide tooth comb.  Do not use heavy oils. If blow drying the hair use a concentrator nozzle on the blow dryer and blow dry in the direction the hair comes out of the scalp. You can also air dry or sit under a hooded dryer.  Be careful with heat applied to the hair.

Treatment:

When coloring your hair leave it up to a professional.  When hair is colored, condition hair more and keep it moisturized.
