CAUSES AND PREVENTION OF HAIR BREAKAGE
A full, shiny and glossy hair is every woman’s dream. Unfortunately, women have to deal with the opposite of this at one point or the other. Dealing with hair breakage can be very tiring, especially if you have tried all methods and it’s been futile.
What are the causes of hair breakage and how do you prevent them?
Lack Of Moisture
When your hair is too dry, it leads to continuous breakage. Overwashing of the hair can equally strip the hair of its natural oils. It is advisable to ensure that your hair is adequately moisturized. Invest in leave-in conditioners and oils for your hair.
Ensure that all your hair products have moisturizing effects.
Excessive heat can be very damaging to the hair. It makes the hair weak, light, and overly prone to breakage. You can reduce the heat from hair dryers and other thermal appliances when you use them. Using a heat protectant is also necessary to keep your hair healthy and strong.
Overly tight hairstyles, especially braids can make you lose your hair, especially at the edges. Ensure that your hair is not too tight when braided or packed.
Stress and Poor Nutrition
Stress and poor nutrition can affect hair growth. Learn to rest and eat a balanced diet to enhance your hair growth.
