Frequent use of hot styling tools like flat irons, curling irons, and hair dryers can weaken the hair's protein structure, leading to breakage and brittleness.
Harsh chemical treatments such as bleaching, perming, and coloring can strip the hair of its natural oils and weaken the hair shaft, making it more prone to breakage.
Rough towel-drying, aggressive brushing, and using harsh hair accessories can cause friction and mechanical damage to the hair, resulting in breakage.
Wearing tight hairstyles like braids, ponytails, and buns can create stress on the hair follicles and lead to breakage, especially along the hairline.
Dry and dehydrated hair is more susceptible to breakage. Insufficient conditioning, environmental factors, and certain hair care practices can contribute to moisture imbalance.
A diet lacking in essential nutrients, especially protein, vitamins, and minerals, can weaken the hair's structure and lead to increased breakage.
