The most common treatments for hair breakage are conditioning treatments. There are many moisturizing conditioners, deep conditioners, and reconstructing or protein conditioners on the market today to help with hair breakage. Just this fact shows that you are not alone in your struggle!Using moisturizing conditioners and deep conditioners are pretty simple.
However, I advise you to be careful when using any type of strong reconstructing conditioner on your hair. These formulations can be very strong in protein and could cause more harm than good. In addition to using special conditioning treatments, you should combine this with the utmost hair care.
Special Hair Care
While I say "special" hair care, I mostly mean things that you should already be doing to your hair anyway! If you're suffering from severe hair breakage, you should treat your hair with extra special care. Eliminate heat, eliminate brushing, and reduce manipulation. The less you're messing with your hair, the less opportunity there is for it to break.
Additionally, you should only use a wide-tooth comb on your hair and make sure to detangle with care. If you're treating your hair with conditioners and handling it with special care and still feel that it is not working, cutting off the damage may be your only option.
Cut if Off
You've either made the choice to cut off your damaged hair or the extra treatment is just not working and it's now your only choice. Whatever the reason, cutting off your damaged hair will give you a fresh start.
Sometimes we may only be able to treat it for so long before we are ready to have completely healthy hair again. The good news is that it grows back! And the even better news is that now you know how to take care of your hair better than before!
So do not be discouraged if this is the only option that you have. It is very difficult to stop hair breakage if not impossible. I lived through a year and a half of treating damaged hair and I was relieved when I finally cut it off!
