Hair breakage is a frustrating issue that many women experience. Fortunately, there are ways to put a stop to this often challenging problem. Here are the most effective ways to save your strands.
Moisture like your hair’s life depends on it—because it does.
Dry hair is brittle and susceptible to breakage, which is why it’s so important to keep it well hydrated. Use a shampoo designed to drench hair with moisture, such as Sudzz FX's Cashmere Hydrating Shampoo.
Protect your hair from sunlight.
Did you know that sun damage can also weaken your hair and make it more prone to breakage? A product that filters harmful ultraviolet rays can make a world of difference, such as Pureology's Hydrate Hydra Whip. Use it regularly for best results.
Go directly to the “root” of the problem by sealing in moisture at the source.
To do this, you need a restorative product that’s designed to repair the effects of dehydration, like PRAVANA's Nevo Hydra Pearls. This product is as decadent as its name suggests—it moisturizes with an intensive combination of Mulateiro Extract and Babassu and Brazil Nut Oils. Simply apply the contents of one capsule to your hair after showering to reap its rewards. You’ll notice your hair just looks healthier, too.
Avoid styling your hair when it’s wet.
This is a common problem, since many of us are guilty of running a comb through wet strands. Doing this can cause your hair to snap. Instead, spray on a product like Kenra's Platinum Style Prep Detangling Spray while hair is extra wet and run your fingers through it.
If you’re a heat-styling fiend—as in you can’t get enough of your flat iron and your curlers are your BFFS—then it might be time to look into your daily hair routine.
If you use heat-styling products regularly, you’re putting your hair at risk for damage and, ultimately, breakage. Try a product that’s designed to protect your hair from harmful heat, like Sudzz FX's LiquidLuxe Luxury Mist. It will smooth your mane while also helping reduce breakage caused by temperatures of up to 428ºF .
Nothing contributes to damaged, broken hair more than improper treatment.
Whether it’s a combination of the wrong products and regular heat styling or even a dietary issue that’s causing the breakage, making small changes can have an enormous impact on the condition of your hair. Snobgirls Professionnelles Prestocure Serum Capsules were formulated with this very concept in mind. Each pearl is enriched with amino acids, vitamins, and essential proteins that work together to repair and recover it. With regular use, your hair becomes stronger. This is especially critical for over-styled hair that’s seemingly at its “breaking point”—a nourishing product can make a world of difference.
Finally, don’t let your hair grow…and grow…and grow. Regular haircuts are necessary to maintain your hair’s overall health, even if you’re just trimming off those split ends. Hair is much less likely to snap off when it’s healthy! Maintain a standing appointment at Brick & Mirror Beauty Bar.
