There are many reasons that cause hair breakage. But how can you prevent that from happening? The breakage is a sign that your hair is more fragile. Therefore, we need to find out the main reason why hair breakage happens and how to prevent it.
What is hair breakage?
Split ends and hair breakage are not the same. Hair breakage happens when your hair shaft breaks – and the result is that your hair gets shorter. You can notice hair breakage by strands appearing shorter than the rest of your hair. When our hair strands are more fragile, it becomes easier to break off. Maybe you can recognize yourself with knots on your hair or that your hair easily gets tangled. When you try to get those knots away or detangle your hair, your hair may break off.
What are the reasons for hair breakage?
There are plenty of reasons why hair breakage happens. But here are the most common reasons.
Heat damage causes hair breakage
When your hair is exposed to heat, it causes damage to the hair shaft. Your hair will become drier, more fragile and it will break off easier.
Either if that is styling tools or hot weather, your hair will become damaged. You can improve this by using a heat protector. SKYDDA heat protector will protect your hair from the heat, by adding a barrier around your hair shaft. The barrier acts as a shield against the heat. A heat protection spray will also nourish your hair, which will prevent split-ends and also strengthen your hair.
Moisturize your hair
When your hair is dry, it becomes more fragile. This will over time cause hair breakage. To improve this, it will be important for you to add moisture to your hair routine. A few steps, to begin with, is to invest yourself in a good shampoo and conditioner with nourishing properties.
Björk FUKT-series includes shampoo, conditioner, and treatment. All of them contain moisturizing properties that will give your hair an extra moisture boost. If your hair is dry, you will see a difference right after you have used those.
Be gentle to your hair
Our hair strands become more fragile when the hair is wet. Therefore, you need to be gentle with your hair when it’s wet. If you brush your hair when it’s wet, there is a bigger risk that your hair strands will break off. In the same way when you dry your hair using a towel if you rub your hair too hard – it will also cause hair breakage. Instead of rubbing your hair, you can try to gently wrap the towel around your hair and let the towel absorb the moisture.
Even if it feels great with a tight ponytail or bun, there is a risk that the elastic band will cut your hair off. If you like to have your hair in a ponytail or bun, try to have it in other ways, if you always have a high ponytail, this will prove that your hair strands will become more fragile at the same part of your hair.
