Is it Possible to Prevent Hair Breakage?
To prevent hair from breaking is a tall task...yet, significantly reducing breakage is possible and we have thousands of customers who agree.
Breaking hair results from a wide variety of factors, primarily the fundamental moisture and nutrition level in the follicles themselves. Chemical treatments rob nutrients, destroy proteins, deplete amino acids, and reduce moisture content. Styling with hot tools makes hair weak and prone to snapping, splitting or tearing (as the picture above shows!) Poor nutrition in terms of the building blocks of the follicles - Biotin, Niacin, B-Vitamins, etc. leave hair weakened leading to frizz, split-ends and general damage.
Our "Number 1" recommendation to customers is to build a solid base to prevent hair breakage by using vitamin supplements. Besides the overall benefits they provide, hair vitamins ensure the level of required nutrients is stable providing a foundation for strength. Once that is established, then other factors such as straightening, relaxing, daily styling, and the hair products you use, can be managed accordingly with the knowledge nutrition has been satisfied.
With that said, we also recommend using a moisturizing shampoo and condition - specifically Healthy Hair Plus®'s Emu Shampoo and Conditioner (see above) to ensure your hair gets maximum penetrating moisture and a healthy dose of Omega 3's.
