Hair Breakage and How It Should be Treated
Is your hair end breaking off constantly when you brush it? Your ends may be frayed or you may notice one section of your hair longer than the other. It is sure not a pretty sight. You may now be searching for a hair miracle, whether a miracle hair product or a miracle hairdresser.
Finding the Right Option
If you are unable to find that miracle shampoo, conditioner or hair treatment, then you will have to seek the professional experience of a hairstylist. Everything in life takes time. It is a process and won’t happen immediately. To improve the health of your hair, you may have to make more than one visits to the hair salon. This is especially true when you suffer from hair breakage. You have to be willing to give the hairstylist a chance to help you – in more ways than one.
The first thing that the hairdresser will do is to assess the extent of your hair damage to determine what the cause is. To understand the reason for the hair shedding, be aware that everyone loses about 100 hairs each day so you have a buffer. When you suffer from hair breakage, however, your hair strands have become damaged and weakened. It could be due to poor hair care. It can be disheartening to deal with hair breakage and so this is where a hairstylist comes in. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may have to cut off more hair than you would have liked and start growing it from scratch.
Oils and Moisture
Dry hair ends or split ends are quite an embarrassment for most women. For dry hair, you may not only have dry scalp, but also dry hair shaft. Although, the scalp does have natural oils, it might not be enough to maintain healthy hair. Your hair type also has a lot to do with how the natural oils on the scalp gets to the hair shaft. The process is slower, if your hair is thick and curly. However, whether your hair scalp produces natural oil, if you shampoo without conditioning, this can cause the oils to wash out. The weather is also a deterrent and can rob your hair of its natural moisture.
Stress is one of the causes on the condition of your hair. With stress, you may not feel like taking care of your tresses. If you don’t take care of your hair, then soon enough, the results will show. For that reason, stress will take a toll on your hair over time.
Getting specific illnesses can result in hair breakage. Before you see a hairstylist, be sure to go to the doctor first, if you are sick. You want to make sure that your physical health is fine.
A hair consultation will give the hairstylist enough information to know how to feed your hair. A decision will be made on how to tackle the problem, whether by regular hair trimming, hair treatments, and keeping the hair free from chemicals. It is now time for you to schedule this overdue hair appointment.
