Hair breakage : Easy ways to avoid this on your natural hair
Many of us know that hair breakage is a common problem with naturalists, and we know the common saying “prevention is better than cure” cannot be more true. Finding how to avoid hair breakage is therefore a paramount thing on our minds aside from other hair issues
Most times we’re exposed to finding cure for things we can just prevent.Let’s see ways we can prevent hair breakage.
*REMOVE SPLIT OR DEAD ENDS OF HAIR
Getting the split or dead end trimmed does not affect hair growth. It however gives strength and thickness to hair.
*DON’T COMB HAIR WET
The hair is in its weakest state when wet and can therefore break easily.
*USE LESS HEAT ON HAIR
High heat or frequent heat application on hair causes irrevocable damage and breaks hair. Things like flat tongs, hot rollers, blow dryer etc should be used only on special occasions or not more than once a week on hair.
*DON’T WASH HAIR WHEN TANGLED
Washing hair without removing tangles leads to hair breakage.
*AVOID MAKING HAIR IN TIGHT KNOTS
Frequently doing tight/tiny braids or weaves could result in having hair always tangled thereby leading to breakage.
*AVOID USE OF CHEMICALS
Cut down use of hair products with harsh chemicals. Go natural.
*AVOID TOO MUCH OF SUN EXPOSURE
Sun exposure dries hair and leads to weakening of hair and breakage. This is why protective styles are very good.
*AVOID TOO MUCH OF WASHING HAIR
Frequent wash on hair causes loss of oil, causing hair dryness and breakage.
The hair too needs nutrient as much as the body does. Eating meals that adds nutrient to the hair keeps it healthy.
Following these tips, we can easily prevent our hair from breaking instead of finding solutions to hair breakage when it does.
