Hair Breakage Treatment

Excessive dry hair is prone to breakage and shedding. Reasons for hair breakage include hormonal changes, vitamin deficiencies, medical problems, improper dieting and improper hair care. While the underlying cause is being corrected, there are treatments that can help hair breakage before too much hair is lost. The main thing is to restore moisture to the hair and protect it from harsh elements and chemicals. These treatments will stall the effort, but are not guaranteed to halt breakage all the way. The only way to do that is to correct the cause of it in the first place.

Moisturize

Breakage often occurs because hair is excessively dry and in turn becomes brittle. Locking moisture into your hair follicles is the most important thing you can do to ensure your hair begins to grow back healthy. Moisture keeps your hair strong and elastic so that it can stand everyday wear without breaking. Condition your hair every time you shampoo. In addition, participate in deep conditioning treatments once a week or as needed. For this treatment, you can use olive oil. Heat a cup of olive oil in the microwave for about thirty seconds. Comb the warm oil throughout your hair making sure to rub oil into your scalp as well. The heat of the oil will open up your hair follicles so that it can trap in the moisture and much needed nutrients.

Products and Styling

The products and styling methods you use on your hair directly effect your hairs strength. Regular heat styling such as blow drying, curling irons and flat irons dehydrate and weaken your hair causing breakage. Whenever possible practice alternative methods of styling, such as naturally drying your hair in braids rather than using a curling iron to achieve curls. In addition, use soft hair ties like scrunchies rather than plastic hair ties that rip out hair. You should also take special care in choosing the hair products you use. Common hair products contain many additives and silicones. These contents clog your hair follicles and prevent your hair from accept moisture or nutrients. To avoid this problem, use all-natural shampoos that contain natural oils.

Natural Hair Treatments

Natural products are good for the hair because they don't add to the damage with harsh ingredients. Alcohol-based products only dry the hair out more. Even products that say they are for moisturizing can contain too much alcohol to be beneficial to hair breakage. Natural oils are so much better for hair, especially damaged hair.

Coconut oil is one of the best products to help with hair breakage. Slightly heat it and apply to wet hair to use as a hot oil treatment. It can also be used as a moisturizer, to be applied before drying the hair after a wash. Consuming raw coconut oil is also good for the health of the hair. Add the oil to some of your recipes or drizzle a little on salads to add coconut to your diet.
