Hair breakage is an issue that we all face every now and then, irrespective of our gender, eating habits and hair types. We are often quick to blame our shampoos and conditioners, and pay little attention to other crucial habits that promote hair breakage.
It is important to avoid confusing hair breakage with hair loss, as the two are entirely different issues. This article will walk you through some simple tips to prevent hair breakage.
Here, take a look:
Avoid this Blow-Drying Mistake
Do you use a nozzle on your blow dryer before exposing your hair to intense heat? If not, the grills will fry your hair, causing strands to break apart and fall. The hair cannot withstand direct exposure to heat, and the pressure emanating from the blow dryer grills causes lethal damage.
Avoid Oiling & Blow Drying
In recent years, the oiling and blow-drying hair styling trend has gained immense traction, and naturally, it has also caused immense damage. Experts strongly recommend blow drying the hair after putting any kind of oil on your strands. It’s akin to frying your hair like French fries!
Avoid putting any oil, be it olive oil or coconut oil before using any hot styling tools on your hair. Be sure to wash out the oil, and dry your hair before you expose them to heat.
Sleep on a Satin or Silk Pillow Case
Sleeping on a silk or satin pillow case prevents friction and entangling. Your hair will smoothly glide across the pillow case as you toss and turn through the night. Upon waking up, you can rejoice a sensual mane of bedhead waves.
Avoid Tight Ponytails
Pulling your hair back too tightly can cause breakage by pulling out strands. Such pressure on the hair can make your strand brittle and promote breakage.
Using a Soft Brush
Avoid detangling your hair in a haste as it will promote breakage and hair fall. Instead, use a softer brush or comb to gently detangle your strands.
