Dealing with Breakage, Damage and Hair loss

Everyone deals with hair issues, therefore, it is necessary to know the causes before treating them

Hair breakage.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a few strands or a hefty chunk; any amount of hair breakage or damaged hair can be stressful and stress is one of the main causes that lead to permanent hair loss.

Causes of hair breakage

  • Stress
  • Damage
  • Pollution
  • Improper towel drying
  • Overheating
  • Excessive hair brushing and combing
  • Hairstyling
  • Constantly pulling your hair

Ways to prevent hair breakage

  • Use a hair conditioner
  • One of the main reasons your hair is breaking off could be that you aren’t providing enough moisture to your hair. Take time to pamper your hair.

  • Go easy on the heat
  • Blow-drying and flat ironing hair on regular basis can take its toll on strands. Try to rely on heatfree tools.

  • Target split ends early on
  • You can use a daily split end sealer. Be sure to use a nourishing leave-in conditioner that helps smooth and seals split ends right after you detangle and as a curl refresher in between washes.

  • Braid your hair up before shampooing
  • When wash day comes around, try putting your hair into jumbo braids, and then shampooing to cut down on tangles which can also lead to breakage.

  • Use a pre-wash moisturizer
  • Give your hair an extra shot of moisture on wash day by saturating strands with a rich conditioner.

  • Shampoo correctly
  • Shampoo should only be applied to the scalp and not to the hair shafts. Finding a shampoo that had moisturizers helps the hair shaft and cleanses the scalp.
