Hair breakage is not a disease because it is a natural phenomenon that happens to almost everybody on earth.

Splitting hairs

Most people believe that removing split or dead ends will not make the hair grow properly. But rather it will help your hair grow stronger and thicker. Cutting this dead ends or split ends will reduce the chance of making your hair dry and brittle.

Splitting ends of the hair make the hair look rough and at the long run may require one to cut the whole hair to get rid of them. To avoid the risk of cutting the full hair trimming ½ or ¼ inch of the hair every three to four months will help get rid of the dead hair end. In trimming the dead end of the hair all you need is sharp scissors or you may visit your hair stylist to help.

Avoid using brush on wet hair

So it’s advisable to use wide cobs with the wide tooth to comb the hair when the hair is a little bit wet. The wide-toothed comb will move freely within your hair and will help stop hair breakage.

This is another tip that most people don’t take cognizance of. Application of high heat or frequent application of heat to the hair can cause breakage and damage to the hair. Ensure you don’t use flat irons, hot rollers, blow dryers etc. on daily basis, but if need permits that you use any of them, don’t use more than once in a week.

At last my one recommendation for this tip: Air-dry the hair naturally and avoid using hot water on the hair.

Avoid exposing the hair to too much sunlight

Exposing the hair to too much sunlight makes the hair weak and it also results in hair breakage. So, therefore, it is advisable to avoid exposing the hair to sunlight to stop hair breakage that may result from that.

Washing the hair too frequently deprives the hair of the natural oil present. Washing the hair on a daily basis may result in dry hair which means the hair is prone to breakage.

Another recommendation for this tip: Avoid washing your hair daily except if you have super oily or greasy hair.

Moisturize the hair

I can say categorically that if one follows all the steps and tips stated above and one does not take balanced diet then one may not get a perfect result.

Just like every other part of the body needs proper nutrition, the hair also needs proper nutrition. It’s an undisputed fact that eating healthy and balanced diet will make the hair grow thicker and stronger.

Note: Consume diets like fish, fruits, vegetables, lean meat etc. This is because they are rich sources of vitamins, minerals and protein which are needed for hair growth.
