Hair breakage happens when hair is dry and brittle. These are some of the steps you can follow to prevent hair breakage.

  • Do not shampoo your hair every day. If you have to do, use a mild shampoo.
  • Choose a moisturizing conditioner so that your hair gets the moisture it needs.
  • Do not brush wet hair. If you have to, use your fingers to detangle your hair or use a wide-toothed comb.
  • Avoid using blow dryers, curlers and straighteners as they can damage your hair and scalp.
  • Also avoid the overuse of chemical treatments like perms, dyes, and relaxers too.
  • Massage your hair with warm coconut, olive or mustard oil at least once a week.
  • Get a trim once every three months.
