On the list of natural hair problems, hair breakage ranks very close to the top in our book. Hair breakage can leave hair looking damaged, unruly, lackluster and unhealthy. When hair is experiencing breakage it can cause small knots, tangles and lead to more breaking which can travel its way up the hair shed. Keep reading for tips and tricks on how to treat and prevent breakage.
Protective styling is a highly effective way to prevent breakage. When your hair is protected in a low maintenance style, it isn’t as susceptible to the breakage that comes from daily styling, combing, brushing or being handled excessively. Protective styles like braids, twists, ponytails, wigs and weaves can help to keep the hair protected and prevent excessive breaking.
Avoid styling tools
Heat styling, combing and brushing should be cut down to a minimum to keep hair from experiencing excessive breakage. Avoid the following styling tools/techniques to help avoid breakage.
- Curling irons
- Flat irons
- Blow dryers / concentration nozzles
- Dry brushing/combing
Seal your ends
Sealing your ends with a good moisturizer can help prevent hair breakage. If you’ve been using the same oils and butters as sealants over and over again, your hair might just need a change. Sometimes switching up products can help to prevent your hair from becoming accustomed to them which optimizes results. Our Miracle RepaiRx Curl Food Daily Moisturizer is the herbal solution to dry, damaged hair. This daily moisturizer uses black castor oil and biotin to add healing hydration into your styling routine, controlling dryness and frizz.
Get a trim
Unfortunately, breakage can cause more breakage. When you leave split ends and breakage alone, they can continue to split up the shaft of the hair. It’s important to dust your ends with professional quality sheers, or go to your stylist to get a trim when you notice excessive breakage and split ends.
Shampoos with sulfates can be extremely drying to hair and can lead to breakage. Avoid shampoos with sulfates and opt for hydrating shampoos instead. Our Miracle RepaiRx Strengthening Shampoo formulated with rich black honey and hydrating coconut oil gently cleanses hair without harsh sulfates. Coconut oil smoothes the cuticle surface, leaving hair feeling soft and smooth while black honey heals damage, leaving behind shiny, bouncy curls.
While breakage can be frustrating, it’s not impossible to treat and prevent it. Be sure to see what is working and not working for your hair and enjoy the process of getting back to healthy, beautiful hair!
