Practices That Cause Natural Hair Breakage

Practices That Cause Natural Hair BreakageYou’ve probably heard every advice possible from your stylist – keep your hair moisturized, don’t pull your tresses, pay attention to the ends of your hair, and try avoiding stiff protective styles. While these are all great things to keep in mind, none of them can be as effective as making sure to fully avoid the following four practices.

1) Banding

Banding is a common yet very simple technique to lengthen curls in the hair without using a blow dryer or flat-iron. Banding too tight or too frequently cause the roots of the hair to get damaged, leading to hair breakage. To avoid this issue, take down bands in reverse. This will prevent your hair from tangling or becoming damaged.

2) Hair Claws

Hair claws are a girl’s best friend after diamonds as they keep their hair out of the way while they’re working. However, using hair claws too often causes the hair to become fuzzy and stiff, tangling your hair and causing it to break. To prevent this problem, evenly part your hair before sectioning or stop using hair claws.

3) Pineappling

A pineapple is a quick nighttime styling method. However, it leaves your nape hair wide open and ready for breakage. It also exposes the backside of your hair with time, guaranteeing breakage. To counter this, sleep on a satin pillowcase or while covering your hair with a satin bonnet.

4) Heat Damage

Heat may help you get the style you want, but it’ll suck the moisture out of your hair, causing dryness and eventually hair breakage. So go on a hair detox of sorts and avoid using heat styling tools for six months to prevent hair breakage.

So avoid these four habits if you want to enjoy flaunting healthy, great-looking hair. However, remember to also go for a healthy diet as looking good starts from the inside out.



Inositol Stabilizes Hair Cell Membranes

Inositol Stabilizes Hair Cell MembranesInositol is a member of the B vitamin group and plays several important roles in the body from helping cells to keep their integrity to metabolizing fats and cholesterol. Inositol can also be found in fiber rich foods such as beans, brown rice, corn, and sesame seeds.

While the whole vitamin B family is important to maintain a healthy head of hair, inositol is a stabilizer for cell membrane, and works as an antioxidant on the follicles of hair. It’s believed that it shields hair follicles from membrane damage caused by the build-up of oxidized cholesterol in the scalp, and can play a central role as a monophosphate.

Recent studies have shown that inositol can be used to promote healthy hair growth as used in a supplement form to prevent hair loss. laboratory tests have shown that a diet lacking in Inositol can lead to balding but by taking supplements and eating foods rich in inositol that the balding can not only be reversed but new hair can start growing again.

Not all baldness is caused by the same issues so you definitely want to consult with a medical doctor before beginning and regimen of supplements. If the doctor finds that you are deficient in multiple B vitamins including inositol then you can discuss the best way to re-introduce inositol back into your system. It’s believed the natural form of the vitamins from foods works best as higher percentages of the nutrition are absorbed, but it is certainly the case that supplements including inositol monophosphate can be used as well to great success.

After some time using either supplements or eating natural foods containing the B complex vitamin you should see some change in your hair loss and indeed you might even start growing new hair!
