Too many times I often see hair breakage around the face, particularly on blondes.
This occurs with excessive blow-drying colouring and the use of straightening irons.
Naturally this hair is finer than the rest of the hair and susceptible to damage.
There’s a tendency to style the hair around the face more than the back for obvious reasons.
What to do :
- Ask your colourist to use a gentle creme lightener around your hairline. A low-strength colour will achieve the desired results because the hair is finer.
- Avoid pulling hair back tightly in a pony tail or bun as stretching the finer hair continuously will stress the hair to breakage. Spraying the hair down to achieve a sleek pulled back look is a great preventative.
- Adding thermal heat protector to your blow drying regime will increasingly strengthen the hair and avoid breakage. These products really work!
- Lastly – Moisture treatments a couple of times a week to benefit from manageability and strength
