Hair breakage hase to be one of the most common hair complaints that women from all walks of life have!
In order to get rid of hair breakage, it’s important to do three things:
1. Figure out what’s causing it. Are you using too much heat on your hair? Remember that putting your hair straightener at heats above 150C can lead to permanent damage.
2. Once you’ve figured out the causes of your hair breakage, you need to make a commitment to take consistent actionable steps to reduce breakage forever. In other words, you need to be committed to following these steps:
Limit heat to once a month (or even less!)
I used to be heat obsessed! I would literally apply heat to my hair daily, whether through using a blow dryer or by straightening it frequently. As a result, my hair was in bad condition. In order to overcome my hair woes, I had to become acquainted with styling my hair differently. It took some time, but eventually I got into the habit of only using heat once every three months. (What a change!)
Get Regular Protein Treatments
In order to have stronger hair, it’s advisable to do approximately one or two protein treatments a month. Protein treatments don’t need to be time-consuming or expensive. Simply use kitchen cupboard ingredients like eggs or mayonnaise. Protein treatments often have an immediate impact on your hair and should help to increase its’ strength and reduce damage.
Trim Those Ends!
Holding onto damaged ends is one of the most common causes of breakage. Make sure you commit to having your ends trimmed roughly once every 6-8 weeks (depending on how frequently it grows). Although a professional hair cut isn’t compulsory, a good hair dresser will have the skill to trim your hair without making it look much shorter. Always be specific with your hair stylist and be clear about how you’d like your hair to look.
