Split ends are just the start of hair breakage. Everything from heat styling to chemicals to the weight of your hair can stress your locks and cause breakage. However, once you understand the causes of breakage, it’s easy to maintain a healthy hair routine. That’s why unDONE would like to provide you with the following Boise hair salon tips for preventing hair breakage.
Hair Breakage Culprits
No two people are the same. The same goes with hair, which means everyone has a different breaking point. Hair breakage occurs when the cuticles break down or become damaged. If breakage occurs at the root, it’s often caused by dryness. The most common culprits of hair breakage include:
- Heat Styling
- Hair Color Treatments
- Weight Loss
- Hats or Hair Tyes
The Seasonal Struggle
Winter woes can weigh your hair down. Idaho is home to beautiful mountains and harsh winters, which can cause dullness, frizz, and breakage. Furthermore, the artificial heat from your furnace can cause additional dryness. Even more, chlorine and salt from summer swimming and sweating can cause damage resulting in breakage. The key to managing brittle hair throughout the winter and summer months is to restore moisture. Treat your hair right and combat breakage using Davines MOMO shampoo and conditioner to untangle hair and hydrate it in the process. Pairing this with Davines NOUNOU hydrating hair mask is an excellent way to give your hair the extra love it deserves all year long.
Style Or Health?
To achieve the perfect look, most of us use a plethora of heat-styling tools such as blow dryers, flat irons, or curling irons. Unfortunately, these tools can cause damage to your hair. That’s why our Boise hair salon stylists recommend using ceramic styling tools over other products for beautiful results that won’t fry your hair. Furthermore, try to cut back on heat styling a few times a week and allow your freshly washed hair to dry naturally before styling.
Hair Color Breakage
Overly processed hair is often the price we pay for beauty. This is especially true when you go the DIY route with hair dye, making your hair more vulnerable to breakage. However, having your hair professionally colored by the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE can help prevent overly processed hair using salon-grade color treatments. Furthermore, using a high-quality, sulfate-free shampoo will leave your hair feeling and looking fresh without stripping moisture and hair color.
Weight Loss & Hair Breakage
While losing weight is often good for your health, it can also cause temporary thinning of your hair. Gradual weight loss is better than sudden over a short period of time. Why? Sudden weight loss can be a shock to your system. However, if you find yourself dealing with thinning and breakage due to weight loss, it’s important to know that it’s only temporary as it will grow back in overtime. In the meantime, volumizing products can help you maintain a fuller look in the process.
Take It Easy Hats & Accessories
At unDONE, we understand that some days it’s easier to hide or pull your hair back with hats and accessories. However, it’s important not to tie your hair too tight or wear a hat every day. Doing so can result in breakage and hair loss. Instead, treat your hair gently and avoid overly tight elastics and opt for a loose braid instead.
