Why is your hair breaking?

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.

You are what you eat

If you’re suffering intense breakage despite avoiding all the above-mentioned mistakes, you need to reconsider your diet. We are what we eat, especially where the health and beauty of the hair and skin are concerned. Be sure to brim up your daily diet with protein, folic acid, zinc, iron and antioxidants for hair growth and strength.
