Have you ever noticed when your hair doesn’t look or feel quite as full, or that you’ve developed a lot of hairs at the front of your face that won’t lay flat or blend into your hairline? 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.
So why does our hair break off? Hair breakage is an ever-present and ongoing issue for millions of women that is caused by our 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 fiber and can put up with a lot before it’s likely to break– though that’s only if it’s in good condition!
Hair breakage is always going to stand in your way of reaching your ultimate 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. Grow Gorgeous Overnight to Gorgeous is hair masque you can sleep in so there is minimal effort involved in treating your hair. The treatment will nourish dry and tired hair and help reinforce hair fibres that were previously dehydrated and therefore prone to splitting and hair breakage.
