Moisturize Hair to Avoid Damage and Hair Loss

The liquid, oil, and cream method will permanently save your hair. It is, however, all about your technique. Section your hair and apply moisturizer to each section layer by layer. One of the main reasons your hair is falling out is that you aren’t moisturizing it enough. This rule is fundamental if you have curly hair, prone to damage and hair loss.

Take a Heat on Hair Sabbatical

Except for heated conditioners, which include your hair protection from direct heat by using an insulated cap, heat can cause worse breakage. Keep up away the blow dryer, curling iron, flat iron, and other heat tools until your hair is strong enough to handle. When you return to heat, be sure to use a protectant styler and have the heat set on low, thus causing no more damage and hair loss.

Split end Targeting the Damaged and Hair Loss

During breakage, the ends are usually the first to go, and this is generally due to them not being nurtured as much as they should be. When you twist, curl, or set your hair, use a hydrating protectant like castor oil to seal the ends. Castor oil can be a little too heavy for the entire head of hair for some hair types, such as fine hair. However, there is nothing wrong with using heavy material on your end. Use a split end sealer daily. Use a nourishing leave-in conditioner to smooth and seal split ends immediately after detangling and as a curl refresher in between washes.

Deep Conditioning and Shampooing

It’s essential to use a sulfate-free shampoo that doesn’t contain harsh, stripping cleansers that dry out your hair, but it’s also important where you use it. Shampoo should only be directly applied to the scalp when necessary, not to the hair shafts. While your strands may have excess product buildup, the majority of it will be on your scalp. The cleanser that remains on your strands after washing is enough to break down any dirt, oils, and residue on the rest of your hair. Finding a shampoo with moisturizers for your hair type is essential for protecting the hair shaft and cleansing the scalp.

Trimming and Cutting Damaged and Hair Loss

Trim or cut off the damaged ends to get rid of them. Perform the curl test to determine how far you should snip. Take a small section of hair and dampen it with a spray bottle before doing a two-strand twist and checking your ends. If your ends are frayed or tangled, trim the tip until they form a perfect curl. Healthy ends are tight, smooth, and coiled rather than split or knotted.
