Have you ever noticed your ponytail doesn’t look or feel as full, or that you’ve developed a lot of shorter hairs that frame your face or go astray at the nape of your neck? We’re sorry to tell you that these probably aren’t new baby hairs sprouting up but your hair is likely to have snapped off leaving you with a fuzzy hairline.
Dealing with hair breakage is an ever-present and ongoing issue for millions of women due to everyday styling and environmental factors that cause the hair to weaken and become more prone to snapping and breaking off. Hair is a very flexible and resilient fibre and can put up with a lot before it’s likely to break– if it’s s in good condition, that is! Hair breakage is of course detrimental to your hair goal of having longer, fuller and thicker hair as hair will never be able to grow long if it keeps breaking off at a certain point so keeping hair strong is vital for it growing long.
Hair breakage occurs when the hair strands are dry and damaged and when hair fibre is weakened. These can all be caused from day-to-day styling, colour processing, UV exposure and moisture being stripped from the hair causes it to dry out and become brittle.
Keeping hair as moisturised and hydrated as possible as well as strong will help to prevent hair breakage. There are multiple things you can do to care for your hair and to help reduce the amount of hair breakage you’re experiencing.
Here are our gorgeous tips to reduce hair breakage:
Treat hair to an intense mask once a week
Using conditioning treatments between regular washes will help keep the hair moisturised and give it a boost in its condition. Deep conditioners may be too heavy for everyday use so setting aside a night for an intense mask will help with the condition in a manageable way.
