5 Ways to Prevent Hair Breakage
Breakage is a problem for most everyone with long hair. It can't be avoided, but it can be reduced. So here are some ways to keep your breakage to a minimum. 1. Use a deep conditioner to keep your hair healthy and strong. This is an obvious one that most girls already do. Moroccan Oil has amazing conditioning masks that will leave your hair softer than ever before.
2. When you towel dry after a shower, squeeze your hair instead of rubbing it. This technique will make a big difference. Rubbing your hair with a towel is pretty damaging and will cause it to be frizzy too.
3. Only use a wide toothed comb. A lot of people know that wide toothed comes are the most gentle tool for wet hair, but using them exclusively will keep the hair from snapping off even when it's dry. They also take up less space in your purse than a brush would.
4. Don't wear your hair up all the time. I know, pony tails and top knots are just so fast and easy. But if you keep your hair tied up every day, you'll get a lot of breakage around the place where your ponytail is. You'll have a million little fly-away pieces at about ear length, which is not cute. Try a braid or a headband to keep hair out of the way.
5. Get it trimmed. It's a commonly known fact that in order to have long healthy hair, you have to get it trimmed every now and then. But some people actually think that they're trimming off all their new length, so it won't actually get any longer. They'll go a whole year without going to the salon. But honestly, what's the point in having long hair if it's all scraggly? Even if you have to lose an inch, trimming your hair will get rid of split ends and any uneven growth, leaving your hair in better condition and refreshing your style.
