Hair, we all have it, well most of anyway. It’s one of the first things that people notice about us and most certainly one of the things we take care of the most. But despite our hair therapy, breakages are somewhat inevitable and that is why we need to take a closer look as what were are doing every day to our hair that leaves it breaking.
Make sure you dry and comb your hair gently
We often forget how sensitive our hair really is, washing it roughly, drying it vigorously with a towel and forceful brushing to get out the knots is terrible for your hair, especially when your hair is wet as it is far more fragile and more prone to breakages then.
Don’t scrub or rub your hair or even wring it out, take time with your hair during the washing process being as soft and gentle as possible, this will omit breakage.
It’s preferably to wait for your hair to air dry, pat your hair with a towel to absorb the excess moisture before leaving it to dry naturally. Once this is done take a wide-tooth comb to rake through the knots.
Avoid using elastics that pull on your hair
Hair elastics used to tie up your hair have a tendency to break strands of your hair every time you use them. To avoid these breakages it is better to wear your hair down as much as you can and avoid putting the hair up in a tight pony. If you simply cannot go without your hair up, then try alternatives to elastics that won’t damage your hair, such as headbands made of cloth like satin.
Avoid hairdryers and other heating tools
The hot air from your hairdryer is one of the most common ways to damage your hair. While the heat from the dryer makes your hair look full bodied and healthy it comes at a cost. Avoid blow drying your everyday.
Other heating tools such as straightener or curling iron is also a sure-fire way to damage the bods in your hair as using them on a regular basis causes your hair to get dried out. Try to only use these devices on special occasions and when they are used, use a heat protectant to lessen the pending damage on the hair follicles.
The Dangerous chemical blowout.
A Brazilian blowout might look elegant and striking, but the long term implications will wreak havoc on your hair and even your health.
