To stop hair breakage, use a good moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, along with a detangler, and handle your hair gently when brushing or styling. Additionally, get your hair trimmed regularly, and use a deep conditioning treatment once a week.
- Use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner
Hair that is too dry becomes brittle and breaks easily. To lock in moisture and minimize breakage, wash and condition your hair with a moisturising shampoo and conditioner.
- Detangle your hair
Brushing through tangled hair can cause breakage. Detangle your hair prior to brushing, using a leave-in conditioner, then gently brush your hair with a wide-toothed comb.
- Handle your hair gently
Brushing your hair forcefully and pulling your hair too tight can cause breakage. Brush your hair gently, and avoid creating too much tension with ponytails and up-dos. Use covered elastic hair ties, and brush with a boar-bristle brush.
- Get regular trims
Hair breakage leads to spilt ends that can travel up the strands and cause frizz. Get regular trims, about every four to six weeks, to remove split ends and prevent further breakage.
- Use a weekly deep conditioning treatment
Add extra moisture and protection to your hair by applying a deep conditioning treatment once a week. This is especially important for dyed, bleached or heat-damaged hair.
