        Causes of Hair Breakage and Split Ends: How to Treat and Prevent Them

        Causes of Hair Breakage and Split Ends: How to Treat and Prevent Them

        Causes of Hair Breakage and Split Ends

        Hair breakage. Split ends. We’ve all been there, right? These are both extremely common for women with all different hair types and lengths. We may not even realize it, but our daily routines often cause the most damage to our strands. This is why it is extremely important to take care of your hair. 

        We’re here to help you pinpoint the difference between hair breakage and split ends, what exactly are the causes, and how to help and prevent them.

        Difference Between Hair Breakage and Split Ends

        A common misconception for most people is that hair breakage and split ends are the same thing. While that’s not the case, they are both caused by many of the same poor hair maintenance habits. Hair breakage and split ends both occur when strands or tips are broken, which usually happens from a lack of moisture, heat styling, or from chemical exposure. Hair breakage can appear on the ends of the hair, but you might see it at any point of the strand. A tell-tale sign of breakage is seeing small white dots in different areas of the hair. These white dots are an indication that the hair is fractured or severely chemically damaged, giving your hair an overall straw-like look. Split ends, however, are usually only seen at the tips.

        7 Common Causes of Hair Breakage and Split Ends: 

        1. Lack of Moisture and Oils: Washing your hair too often will strip out all of the natural oils that your scalp produces. If the scalp becomes dry and brittle, it will not give your scalp enough time to produce the oils that it needs. This will result in dry, brittle hair, leading to breakage or split ends. Using the wrong products also plays a factor. If you're cleansing your hair with sulfates and other harsh ingredients, the scalp will become dry too quickly and you’ll be worsening the problem. Pai-Shau Replenishing Hair Cleanser is sulfate free, gluten free, vegan, and made with a tea-infused formula that works on both the hair and scalp. 
        1. Styling: Frequently using heat styling tools will severely damage your stands and cause breakage. The heat from these styling tools will strip the oils and proteins that are needed in order for your hair to stay strong. Without them, your hair will dry out, thus causing it to break off easier. Tight hairstyles can also cause breakage. High ponytails and super tight braids might look super cute, but the long-term effect will eventually cause breakage to your hairline. The tight friction of pulling and tugging makes the hair more susceptible to breaking off at the root. 
        1. Chemical Exposure: If you get your hair colored or chemically treated often, then you’ve definitely experienced breakage at some point. It’s just inevitable. These chemicals change the bonds that make your hair the texture that it is. 
        1. Nutrition: Lack of essential nutrients could be an attributing factor to hair damage. Zinc, iron and folic acid are essential nutrients you need in your diet for your hair to stay strong. Some examples that will help your diet are eggs, spinach, salmon, avocados and nuts. Hair is made up of a protein called keratin. Make sure you’re not consuming too much or too little. Always use protein in small doses. Water is another key nutrient to healthier hair. Hydration will show through your scalp and prevent lack of moisture. This is one of the important causes for hair breakage.
        1. Environmental Conditions: Cold, dry climates, heat, humidity, wind, and the sun can all take a toll on the overall health of your hair. The dry winter air will lead to static and dry hair. Switching from indoor air to outdoor can damage the cuticle layers of your hair. Strong winds in the air lead to tangles. Tangles lead to breakage. The list goes on... When in these environmental conditions, it is important to adjust your hair care regimen accordingly and give yourself some extra self care. 
        1. Stress: Have you been stressed out lately? Extreme stress can cause hair roots to reach a stopping stage of their hair growth cycle prior to when they are supposed to. This will result in fall out from the root. Extreme stress is one of the major factors that causes breakage and split ends in hair,
        1. Genetic Factors: Lastly, a cause of hair breakage and split ends could be your genetics. Do your parents, grandparents, or relatives have fine hair? This could be the reason why your hair is more susceptible to breakage. Fine hair is fragile and must be treated with delicacy.

        5 Ways To Repair and Prevent Hair Breakage and Split Ends:

        1. Limit manipulation of your hair. Avoid aggressive brushing, drying, heat styling, and tight hairstyles. 
        2. Consume the right nutrients. Start eating foods that are rich in protein, such as eggs, fatty fish, spinach, and also drink more water. 
        3. Get a trim.  Visit your hairstylist every 4-6 weeks. This will remove the tips that are broken off, and leave hair looking and feeling healthy again.
        4. Load up on moisture. Use Hair Care Products that are gentle (like Pai-Shau!) and have natural ingredients that fit well with your hair texture. Add Pai-Shau’s Supreme Revitalizing Mask (moisturing mask for hair), Something To BeLeave-In, and Biphasic Infusion hair serum into your hair care RouTEAne. These products will give you ultimate hydration and strength. Be careful when your hair is wet (this is when it’s most fragile). 
        5. Switch out your towel and pillowcase. Use a microfiber towel and a silk pillowcase to lessen irritation on your hair.

        How to Moisturize Hair - Effective Tips to Keep your Hair Hydrated

        how to moisturize hair - Pai-Shau

         

        How to moisturize your hair

        A big struggle, especially for those with curly and coarse hair, is keeping locks moisturized for an extended period of time. There are a few different reasons for this, some of which is your hair washing routine, not knowing the difference between hydrating and moisturizing your hair, using the wrong type of moisturizing products, and lacking hair masks.

        Are you washing your hair correctly? 

        Do:

        • Use a hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner. We recommend our Replenishing Hair Cleanser and Replenishing Cream Conditioner because it will not strip your hair of natural oils. 
        • Wash your hair only a few times per week to retain the scalp’s natural oils. If you wash it more frequently than that, you run the risk of drying it out.

        Don’t:

        • Wash your hair in scalding hot water because it will result in dehydrated hair and increase frizz and static.
        • Brush your hair after the shower. When you get out of the shower your hair is extremely fragile and prone to breakage.
        • Lather in the shampoo on the ends of your hair. Shampoo should only be used to the scalp area and will only further dry out the ends.

        Hydrate before you moisturize

        You may be surprised to learn that “hydrate” and “moisturize” do not mean the same thing. It’s important to do both as part of our hair care “rouTEAne,” and in the proper order. Hydrating the hair is improving the absorption of water (penetration), while moisturizing is coating the outer surface (locking it in). Hydrating the hair will increase the initial moisture. The product you’ll want for hydration is a leave-in conditioner. Our Something To BeLeave-In, Miracle MulTEAtasker spray will ensure intense hydration. In this product, water is the first ingredient, which will really hydrate the hair.


        After you have the right amount of hydration, next comes locking it in with moisture. Moisture will create a seal around the hair, preventing the moisture from leaving. A common mistake people make is moisturizing without hydrating. You will not get the results you are looking for by skipping the first step. 

        Use an oil-free serum

        We are often told that oil-based products will deeply moisturize the hair shaft, but that’s not true at all. The oils used in hair products are EXTREMELY different than the natural oils that your scalp produces. When initially applying these products, the hair will feel moisturized but this is only temporary. These heavily-based oily products have large molecules that are too big to penetrate deep inside the hair. Pai-Shau Replenishing Cleanser, along with other products, uses smaller molecules in its formula, which is why it’s able to cleanse without disrupting any natural oil production. 

        If you want to deeply moisturize your hair, we recommend to use a oil-free hair serum (using smaller molecules). Pai-Shau Biphasic Infusion is an oil-free rejuvenating concentrate with a potent amount of our Signature Tea Complex. This complex will nourish the hair structure, attract moisture, and lock it inside. It also surrounds hair with a sheer veil of shielding properties to protect against environmental factors, which will prevent your hair from drying out. Biphasic Infusion = LIQUID GOLD!

        Masking is essential

        If it feels like no matter what products you use, your hair is STILL dry, you might want to switch out your regular conditioner for a nourishing mask. Pai-Shau Supreme Revitalizing Mask, an moisturizing mask for hair locks in moisture without any added weight. We recommend using this mask once a week after you shampoo with Pai-Shau Replenishing Cleanser. For maximum hydration, use with  Replenishing Cream Conditioner to strengthen hair as well.

        You won’t believe how soft and silky your hair will feel afterwards!
