What are the causes of hair breakage?
BREAKAGE OCCURS WHEN THE HAIR STRAND WEAKENS AND SNAPS, RESULTING IN A SHORTER HAIR STRAND. AS A HAIRSTYLIST, I CAN IDENTIFY SEVERAL CAUSES OF HAIR BREAKAGE:
OVERPROCESSING: WHEN THE HAIR IS OVER-PROCESSED WITH CHEMICALS SUCH AS HAIR DYES, RELAXERS, OR PERMS, IT CAN BECOME BRITTLE AND WEAK, LEADING TO BREAKAGE.
HEAT DAMAGE: FREQUENT USE OF HIGH-HEAT STYLING TOOLS, SUCH AS FLAT IRONS, CURLING IRONS, AND HAIR DRYERS, CAN CAUSE HAIR BREAKAGE. EXCESSIVE HEAT CAN WEAKEN THE HAIR SHAFT AND CAUSE IT TO SNAP.
MECHANICAL DAMAGE: TUGGING, PULLING, AND BRUSHING THE HAIR TOO VIGOROUSLY CAN CAUSE HAIR BREAKAGE. USING A BRUSH WITH STIFF BRISTLES, TIGHT HAIRSTYLES THAT PULL ON THE HAIR, AND WEARING HATS AND HELMETS THAT RUB AGAINST THE HAIR CAN ALSO CAUSE MECHANICAL DAMAGE.
ENVIRONMENTAL DAMAGE: EXPOSURE TO HARSH WEATHER CONDITIONS, SUCH AS STRONG WINDS, EXTREME COLD OR HEAT, CAN CAUSE HAIR BREAKAGE. ADDITIONALLY, EXPOSURE TO SALTWATER OR CHLORINE CAN ALSO CAUSE HAIR BREAKAGE.
POOR NUTRITION: A DIET LACKING IN ESSENTIAL VITAMINS AND MINERALS CAN CAUSE HAIR BREAKAGE. HAIR NEEDS NUTRIENTS LIKE PROTEIN, IRON, AND BIOTIN TO GROW AND REMAIN HEALTHY.
I ALWAYS RECOMMEND MY GUESTS TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEIR HAIR TO PREVENT BREAKAGE. THIS INCLUDES USING HIGH-QUALITY PRODUCTS LIKE ORIBE, MINIMIZING HEAT STYLING, AVOIDING OVER-PROCESSING, AND MAINTAINING A HEALTHY DIET AND LIFESTYLE.

WHAT DOES TYPICAL WEEK OF HOME MAINTAINANCE LOOK LIKE?
I have heard so many times “I would love extensions, it’s just so much maintenance”
Or “I don’t know how I would be able to fix it all the time”
Of course I teach you how to wash, style and upkeep your extensions at home.
This is what a typical week looks like for me.
Every evening I add a little oil to the ends and twist braid (so easy only two sections!!!)
Day1: wash day or hair salon day
Day2: looking fresh, add some dry shampoo, touch up some curls in the front
Day3: still looking great, I might wash my bangs (bang wash) depending on how they look and refresh my curls.. probably don’t need as much dry shampoo today.
Day 4: I am for sure washing my bangs today. Bangs only, dry them and style as needed.
Day 5: dry shampoo, brush and go!
Day 6: depending on how much I wore my hair in a pony tail at the gym, and what I have I have planned.. might do a top wash or work on the crown section of my head.
Day 7: check bangs and crown, possibly wear my hair half up, or all the way up! Rinse and repeat!! Note: if you have pretty coarse or straight hair, your week will be even easier than mine! It’s that easy. Yes it’s a lot of hair to wash and style but you’re only doing it around 5 times between appointments. Having extensions helps your hair stay less oily and easier to style in the mornings! Of maintenance scares you, don’t let it!
