If you have been noticing lots of strands on your hair combs, the breakage is not just from the blues.
It’s painful to see your hair break while all you want is to see it grow longer. The genesis of dealing with hair breakage is to know the root cause before you address it.
We have thus listed a few causes of hair breakage. Examine them and figure out the reason behind your hair breakage:
Too much heat
Sure thing, your hair looks great after heat styling. All the same, overdoing it damages the cuticle making your hair brittle and prone to breakage.
We are not saying that you stay for months without washing your hair. All we are saying is that in as much as you should keep your hair clean, washing too frequently causes hair breakage. This is because you clean off the natural oils leaving your hair dry. Dry hair breaks so easily.
How do you dry your hair after washing? See, wet hair is very brittle. If the material you use to dry it is rough, your hair will break. Also, be very gentle when towel drying your hair. Just pat it dry or cover your head with the towel and leave it to dry.
Studies have linked hair breakage to stress. If you can manage your stress, you will protect your hair from dandruff and breakage.
We can’t emphasize this enough. Your diet is everything and a poor diet can lead to hair breakage. On the other hand, a diet rich in iron, folic, zinc, and enough protein will keep your hair healthy and strong.
Skipping the conditioner
By skipping the conditioner, you are not just making untangling difficult but you are also exposing your hair to breakage.
