Hair breakage is the breaking of the shafts of the hair which causes splits ends and shorter hair. Hair breakage is usually the result of dry scalp and damaged hair. About fifty of your hairs are shedded on a daily basis, shedding more than this amount of hair is definitely a case of hair breakage.
Breaking is most times the result of improper or insufficient hair maintenance. For example, blow drying your wet hair, chemical exposure, washing your hair with overly hot water, using the wrong hairbrush, and retaining the proper amount of moisture.
Some people often say "I always have messy hair." Which isn't right, your hair is not always messy, you just don't know what to do about it, so you just let it be that way. However, there are still a few ways to give you that shiny, softer, thicker and healthy hair that would never be messy or break.
Use the Right Shampoos and Conditioner
Dry hairs are more brittle than oily hair, look for Shampoos that are gentle and won't strip your hair of its natural oils. Shampoos that contain Almond Oil and Shea Butter are excellent because they have replenishing oils and they hold water against your hair shaft which helps it remain hydrated and healthy.
When buying a shampoo, look for shampoos that are sulfate free. Sulfate removes the natural oil from your hair leaving it defenseless and dry. If you have a wavy, coarse or curly hair it's essential that you consider a low amount shampoo or foregoing shampoo on a daily basis and in its place use natural ingredients like plain water and honey or just conditioners which replenishes the oil your hair might have lost when you use shampoo.
Buy conditioners that are silicone free and that contain other natural ingredients like Aloe Vera. Use deep conditioners for your hair once a week to keep it hydrated. Natural deep conditioning ingredients like Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, and Almond Oil are more effective in preventing your hair from drying out no matter the type of shampoo you decide to use.
Avoid Products with Harsh Chemicals
Most products are combined with varieties of chemicals like sulfates, silicon, alcohol, and fragrance that are not good for the hair. Look for products that are either organic or herbal to use for your hair. Avoid using too many chemically enhanced styling sprays and in its place use sprays that have natural hair ingredients like Coconut Oil and Argan Oil. In return they will give your hairs a smooth and silky look.
Avoid Heat And Wet Combing
Excessive use of heating tools like a blow dryer, curling or straightening irons causes your hair to get dried out, leading to frayed ends and breakage. Blow drying your hair daily is damaging to the hair as it stops the growth of healthier and stronger hair.
Avoid combing your hair when it is wet because your hair is prime for breakage when wet. We recommend you wait until it is almost dry to detangle strands of your hair. Always remember to use a pre-wash moisturizer and air dry your hair.
Get Regular Trims
To prevent breakage and any other damage on your hair, remove split or dead ends from the hair shaft. Trimming the split or dead ends of your hair is productive in making your hair thicker and growing it stronger. Getting your hair trimmed saves you the time of getting a full haircut when the split or dead ends of your hair reach your hair shaft.
