No matter your hair type—curly hair, color-treated hair, thin hair, etc.—hair breakage can happen to you. If you’ve ever had uncontrollable frizz or noticed your ends starting to split, then you’ve probably experienced hair breakage firsthand. It’s all too common, and sometimes it can feel too difficult to fix. Once you notice hair breakage happening, however, there are certain steps you can add to your hair care routine right away to help care for your tresses and manage breakage. Better yet—take these steps when you aren’t dealing with breakage to help prevent it in the first place. Here, we’re breaking down hair breakage, including the most common causes, and sharing our best hair breakage treatment and hair styling products to help restore your strands.

WHAT IS HAIR BREAKAGE?

Like we said, hair breakage is very common. It can also have many forms. Frizzy hair, for starters, can be a form of hair breakage. Split ends are another. When hair is healthy, the scales on each strand’s cuticle line up together, which also creates smoothness and shine (what we all strive for, basically). When hair becomes dry or damaged, the scales can splay apart in every which way, resulting in frizz, brittle texture, and eventually, breakage. This is where hair breakage treatments come in handy, but we’ll get to that later!

WHAT CAUSES HAIR BREAKAGE?

Unfortunately, there are many daily things that can contribute to and cause hair breakage. Below we’re digging into three of the most common causes.  

HAIR BREAKAGE CAUSE #1: TOO MUCH HEAT STYLING

Yes, it’s true—too much heat styling can cause your hair to become damaged and eventually break. So, if you suspect your hair is close to breaking, try to avoid hot tools as much as possible and let your hair air dry when you can. When you do have to blow-dry your hair or use another heat tool, be sure to protect your strands with a heat protectant spray, such as the L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, beforehand.

HAIR BREAKAGE CAUSE #2: DRIED-OUT STRANDS

Dry hair, beware. Just like the rest of your body, your hair needs moisture to stay healthy. When hair becomes overly dry it can feel stiff and straw-like to the touch. Because they’re furthest from the scalp, the length and ends of your hair are most likely to show signs of dryness first. If your hair feels dry, switch to a hydrating shampoo and conditioner system, such as the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo and the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner.

HAIR BREAKAGE CAUSE #3: STRESS

Stress doesn’t do any good in any situation and according to research published by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), stressing out also won't do your hair, skin, and nails any favors. We know—having someone telling you outright not to feel stressed doesn’t exactly fix the situation. Instead, may we suggest treating yourself to some much-deserved self-care. Even just a few minutes a week can help with keeping calm. Why not try a luxurious face mask, such as the L’Oreal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate and Refining Face Mask. Or, take a few minutes to enjoy a hair mask, like the L'Oréal Paris EverPure Deep Moisture Hair Sheet Mask—you’ll be beating stress and caring for your hair at the same time.

OUR BEST HAIR BREAKAGE TREATMENT

Once you’ve determined that you have hair breakage, it’s time to address the situation—pronto! To do so, add the L'Oréal Paris EverStrong Break Proof Lotion into your daily hair care routine right away. This fortifying formula will help strengthen weak and fragile strands and protect it against breakage. (That’s right, you can use this hair breakage treatment as a preventative treatment, too!) It works by forming a protective shield around the strand to defend against damaging factors like heat styling and UV rays. To use it, apply a dime-sized amount of lotion to damp, towel-dried hair, working it through your lengths and ends. Brush through to make sure the product is evenly distributed, then go about the rest of your hair styling routine as usual.
