Causes of Hair Damage
Tools like straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers can suck the moisture from your hair, leaving it dry and prone to damage.
Chemical treatments, like bleaching, can strip your hair of its natural oils and weaken its structure.
Water with high calcium content can lead to mineral buildup on your hair, causing it to become weak and feel rough and brittle.
High stress levels can affect the health of your hair, leading to hair loss and overall damage.
Just as the sun can damage your skin, it can also damage your hair. UV rays can weaken the hair shaft, making it more susceptible to breakage and color fading.
Environmental pollutants can accumulate on your hair, causing it to become brittle and lifeless.
Poor dietary choices can deprive your hair of essential nutrients, leaving it weak and dry.
