Dealing With Hair Breakage

If there's one thing a woman considers most as her crowning glory, that would be her hair. But how can you expect a woman to be proud of her hair if it's prone to split ends and breakage?

What causes hair to break apart so easily? Experts point their fingers at wear and tear. Well, if you're always treating your hair with different kinds of chemicals (coloring, straightening, curling agents), I won't be surprised if your hair gets stripped off of its protective layers.

How can you avoid subjecting your hair to such a harsh beating then? You can start by choosing hair products that are gentler than the ones you're currently using.

If you're using ammonia or peroxide-based hair dyes, go with semi permanent ones instead. You can also recover your hair's lost protective barrier by using damage repair shampoos and conditioners.

Keratin, wheat, or soy protein-based hair products can help strengthen your hair and protect it from breaking so easily. Deep conditioning products that are made with natural oils can have just the same effect.

Your hair is just as much a part of you as any other body part, so take care of it. You don't want to go bald from constant hair breakage now, do you?
