Breakage and irreparable damage can be done to your hair if you regularly use a flat iron and a blow dryer. This can all be avoided by washing your hair less frequently and only using heating products when you are styling your hair for a special occasion. There are products on the market that offer a level of protection against heat, but that does not mean that they will be able to totally prevent breakage.

2. COLORING
The protein of the hair shaft is broken down and weakened when exposed to the chemicals in hair coloring. If you color your hair regularly, you will be causing untold damage. Get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks and opt for foils instead of a full tint when coloring.

3. AGE
Many parts of out body become weaker as we age, and hair is one of them. This is why you will often see older people have hair that is thinner than what it was when they were younger.

4. DIET
We are constantly surrounded and bombarded by chemicals and pollutants, as they are in the foods we eat and the air that we breathe. It is now possible to have hair analyzed to find where the nutritional deficiencies lie. A level of protection can be added by always using a conditioner after you shampoo your hair. Use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to keep your hair detangled. The conditioner you use should provide enough lubrication to help prevent breakage from pulling.
