Reasons Why Your Hair Is Breaking

Hair breaking refers to the cutting away of the hair. Perms and braids could cause hair breakage. Hair breakage can be caused by stress, heat, underlying conditions, and more. Hair breakage has many different causes. Healthy hair depends on an inner cuticle with overlapping scales that keep your strands together. When these scales fall apart, your hair can get dry and eventually separate, leading to damage. It may seem like cutting your hair can damage it. Ironically though, hair trims may help keep your hair healthy and free of split ends.

According to Healthline, the following are the causes of hair breaking:

1. Hair products and styling

2. Over brushing

3. Heat and lack of moisture

4. Not having regular haircut

5. Rubbing wet hair with wet towel

6. Tight hairstyles

7. Hairc creams containing methanol


1. Avoid haircut that pulls the hair

2. Washing your hair by rubbing shampoo into the length of your hair

3. Coloring, perming, or relaxing your hair

4. Drying your hair by rubbing it with a towel

5. Brushing your hair while it is wet

6. Use conditioner after every shampoo.

If changing how you care for your hair does not help you see healthier hair, you may want to see a dermatologist. Your hair care may not be the root cause of your problem. Seeing a dermatologist is especially important if you are concerned about thinning hair or hair loss. Most causes can be stopped or treated. The sooner the problem is addressed, the better your results.
