Ways To Stop Hair Breakage
Reduce Chemical Application
Our hair is exposed to lot of chemicals present in shampoo, conditioner, detangles and it is difficult to control an exposure to these chemicals as it is mainly used for hair and scalp cleaning.
These chemicals make the hair weak and frizzy. It causes breaking of hair very often as it becomes weak and fragile. We cannot completely avoid but can reduce the use of products available in the market by using natural hair care products available at home.
Keep Styling Elements Away
Styling elements is not only in reference to the hot iron rods and straighteners; it also includes hair gels, sprays and creams that are used while dressing up. Women also go for perming, straightening, re-bonding etc. to look prettier, but it is harmful for hair in the long run. From basic blow dry to long term styling, all of it causes damage to our hair making it skimpy and therefore should be distanced from hair.
Maintain Healthy Lifestyle

Get proper sleep, do yoga and meditation to relieve stress and include fibre, proteins and vitamins in your diet for your hair to become stronger and healthier. Healthy hair is less brittle compared to the hair that is thin and weak. So promote natural growth of hair keeping the internal system healthy.
Do Not Treat Your Hair Ruthlessly
Whether your hair is wet or dry, do not brush or comb it ruthlessly. Maximum hair breakage is due to negligence while combing. Use combs that are wide toothed and made of wood as they are delicate on the scalp. In addition, making tight pony tails and buns also reduces air supply to scalp and prevents air ventilation through hair; let your hair loose as natural breathing is beneficial for it too. Wet hair should not be rubbed with towel too; water should be squeezed and blotted on towel instead of rigorous rubbing as it causes hair breakage.
Strengthen Your Hair
Use homemade hair masks occasionally for natural strengthening and shine for the hair. Eggs, yogurt, apple cider vinegar, henna, juices, avocados, bananas have properties that add protein, vitamin, moisture, shine and lustre to hair making it strong and beautiful; all at the same time. This prevents the hair from breaking when treated roughly to an extent and therefore is essential for your hair.
