Lately we’ve had a lot of people asking us what they can do to stop their hair from breaking. We can always offer a solution but it’s also important to know the root of the problem before treating it. Find out some of the common causes of hair breakage from our list below:
We have spoken about the effects of heat damage on some of our previous posts. We cannot stress enough how applying constant heat to your hair can damage it in the long run as it dries and weakens your strands making them more likely to break and fade in colour. You can take a break from applying heat by air-drying your hair and stretching it with Bantu Threading instead of using a blow drier or heat iron.
We all go through it but its best to find a way to manage our stress levels instead of letting it get the best of us and ruin our health, skin and hair.
There is a reason why the term ‘everything in moderation’ is so popular, its because its true. Relaxing, perming and dyeing hair often is one of the biggest causes of hair breakage. Sometimes, it’s better to invest in a wig that matches your desired hairstyle.
Yes, we know you want to have long luscious hair but you’ve also heard of the saying that in order to grow we need to be willing to let go of some things? That is the same principal with our hair. Trimming split ends helps to encourage hair growth and get rid of dead hair that can affect the rest of your hair strands and slow its growth.
If you missed some of our previous posts and haven’t already traded in your cotton pillowcase for a silk one then you are doing your hair a great disservice. Cotton pillowcases absorb moisture from your hair and cause friction, which ultimately leads to hair breakage
Hair breaks when it’s dry and weak so it’s important to moisturise and condition your hair. You can say goodbye to dull breaking hair with our MPL Olive Oil Hair food, which is specially formulated with olive oil, shea butter, rosemary and clove. This formula encourages hair growth, strengthens, moisturises and conditions your hair from root to tip as well as helping to sooth and heal the scalp.
We hope that this advice has been helpful. Wishing you beautiful healthy hair.
