- Lack of fluid: May cause dry and brittle hair.

When should you see a doctor?
If brittle hair is the only symptom that bothers you, you can try to fix the problem yourself. The alarm should be sounded if this symptom is accompanied by other warning signs: sudden weight loss or gain, general weakness, insomnia, or panic attacks.
What are the remedies for breakage and hair loss?
The problem should be solved comprehensively, so we recommend that you make a list of necessary products for the care of brittle hair.
Correctly selected shampoo moisturizes hair and makes it stronger even during shampooing due to ingredients that stimulate more active work of hair follicles.
A conditioner balm designed to care for brittle hair should contain a variety of nutrients that moisturize hair along its entire length and saturate it with beneficial elements.
Good nourishing masks usually contain the same ingredients as conditioners for brittle hair, but in a more concentrated form. In addition, ingredients are added to the masks to take care of the scalp.
The drier the hair, the easier it breaks, so using the right moisturizing oil is incredibly important.
You can add leave-in nourishing sprays to your arsenal to apply to your curls before styling.
Choose combs that won’t hurt your hair. Very soft massage brushes or wide-toothed wooden combs are best.
Add to your New Year wishlist: set against brittleness Matrix So Long Damage. In it you will find shampoo and balm from one of the most hit ranges of the brand. Together, they strengthen hair along the entire length and allow you to say goodbye to the need to constantly trim split ends.

How to get rid of brittle hair at home?
In addition to using care products, there are several other important principles that are also easy to follow at home.
Create comfortable conditions for your hair
The temperature regime has a significant effect on the condition of the hair: if it is too hot or too cold at home, the curls become vulnerable. The optimum temperature for hair indoors is + 16-18 degrees Celsius.
Don’t forget about humidity. Too dry air makes curls brittle. If your apartment has apparently dry air, you can use portable humidifiers. It is good not only for hair, but also for overall health.
Healthy hair in general can also begin to break: for example, when we dry them too actively with a towel, squeeze them intensively after washing, or get carried away with a hot hairdryer. Ideally, after washing your hair, you just need to lightly blot the strands with a very soft towel, apply a conditioning spray and leave your hair to dry on its own. It is better to refuse styling products during the fight against fragility.
Effective folk recipes
You can try to fight brittle hair with supposedly proven folk remedies. For example, make a mask of raw yolk and sour cream – these ingredients moisturize and nourish the hair, making it stronger.
Another option is coconut, almond, olive oil. The oil must be heated in a water bath and applied to the scalp and along the entire length of the strands. It is said that this mask will help fill in the voids in the hair structure, making it denser.
But our experts advise not to trust the advisors on the forums – you never know how certain ingredients will behave on your hair.
Salon treatments for brittle and split ends
If home care is not for you, you can seek professional help. In the arsenal of salon masters, there are many professional ways to protect hair from breakage and split ends.
- Lamination: the hair is covered with the thinnest protective film.
- Glazing: Lamination using a nutrient-based formulation.
- Shielding: Hair care with nourishing and protective ingredients.
- Keratinization: hair straightening procedure with an additional option – protection against breakage.
How to quickly reduce hair breakage?
Fighting hair breakage is a long and painstaking process. But what if the result is needed tomorrow? We asked SalonSecret experts to share quick methods to improve the condition of curls.
- Sleep: you will laugh, but very often a long restful sleep in just 8-10 hours improves the condition of your hair!
- Apply a moisturizing mask at night: it will not be very comfortable to sleep, but all the useful elements of the product will have time to be absorbed and act.
- Wash your hair with a shampoo for straight hair: usually these shampoos contain not only nourishing ingredients, but also weighting components – the hair becomes stronger at least for a day.
