Hair Breakage

Managing healthy hair can be very challenging and it can be damaged in various ways. Most damage is caused by over-processing the hair during chemical services (relaxing, hair color, permanent waving) and further aggravated by daily styling with blow drying and curling irons. All of these factors can rob your hair of moisture and essential nutrients needed to maintain the strength and elasticity of hair.
When hairs break at the ends, they’re called “split ends,” and the splits can travel up the hair shaft. The break starts when points in the hair thicken or weaken. Sometimes this happens near the scalp so a person’s hair never grows very long. When you understand the factors that can cause damage to your hair, you can minimize the effects. Hair breakage and split ends happen less when hair is not dried out and it moist and healthy. By taking care of your hair, you can drastically reduce the chances of hair breakage and split ends.
A major cause of hair breakage is improper use of chemical hair treatments, like the treatments described above. But brushing or combing hair too frequently or in the wrong way (such as using a fine-toothed comb on very thick, curly hair or teasing hair) can lead to breakage. Hair extensions and braids can also cause breakage. Leaving them in too long or pulling them out without professional help can cause hair and scalp damage or even hair loss.

Normally, we lose about 100 hairs each day – old hairs fall out and are replaced with new ones. But with hair loss, hair thins at a rate that can’t be replaced. Falling hair not replaced by new ones can make a person bald or have bald patches. Hair loss can either be temporary or permanent. Changing hairstyle or shampoos used may ease the problem. But if that doesn’t help, a doctor may prescribe a drug to slow or stop hair loss and to aid hair growth. Hair is healthiest when we eat right, exercise, and protect it from too much sun.

Hair Removal Options

leg waxWhile this blog is dedicated to finding better ways to protect your hair, we know first hand how irritating unwanted hair can be. Sure, we’ll do everything we can to protect our crowning glory, but when it comes to the hair on our armpits, legs, face, and bikini area we’d be more than happy to see the last of it. After all, shaving and plucking out all of that hair can feel like a part-time job with the rate at which they grow back.

If you’re tired of dealing with unwanted hair, you should realize that you have options aside from shaving and plucking. Waxing is a good option, although the hair will still grow back. Still, if you have your hair waxed at a salon, the whole process does not have to be as tedious as shaving; besides your hair will grow back a bit slower and with a finer texture. You can also opt for permanent hair removal which can be done in salons. The process takes several visits though, with the number of visits depending on the type of your hair.

Losing up to 100,000 strands of hair every day is normal–old hairs do fall, and these are replaced by new ones. But not losing all! Losing all is an abnormal condition called alopecia. It becomes obvious when the rate of hair fall is more than the rate the hair is replaced. The person either becomes bald or have hair patches. When you see these happen, see a doctor immediately, before it is too late. The doctor may be able to prescribe drugs that could either prevent the condition, perhaps slow it down., or grow new hair. The hair is similar to the other parts of the bodies–one should have a healthy diet, if one wants to keep fit, and that includes your crowing glory–the hair. Also, keep your hair, as much away from the sun.
