The Causes of Fragile Hair and How To Make It Stronger

The Causes of Fragile Hair and How To Make It Stronger
You’re a strong, smart and confident person—so what’s going on with your hair? Those weak, fragile strands that tend to break off at the roots and split at the ends certainly don’t reflect the real you!

Weak and fragile hair can be caused by a number of things:
Mom and Dad. Genetics can play a role in hair’s fragility.
Medicine. Certain medications could cause hair to become weaker and more fragile. Ask your doctor about possible side effects of your prescriptions.
Your Hectic Life. No doubt about it, stress is a prime culprit when it comes to impacting your hair’s integrity. A traumatic experience, a prolonged illness or ongoing strain can all lead to fragile hair.
Your Own Two Hands. That’s right—too much rubbing, pulling or tugging can weaken your hair over time. Shampoo hair gently rather than vigorously, avoid tight ponytails or buns, select combs and brushes that are easy on fragile hair and use them gently.

Once you’ve diagnosed the problem, here’s what you can do:

Boost it. A volumizing regimen like Biolage VOLUMEBLOOM ShampooConditioner and Full-Lift Volumizer Spray adds heft and body to sparse strands thanks to ingredients like eucalyptus and ginger.

Reinforce it. Head to the salon for a body boosting and strengthening treatment like the Biolage Advanced fiberstrong Resurfacing Service. This service contains Intra-Cylane which helps reinforce gaps in the hair structure, while strengthening each strand externally– leaving hair much stronger and softer. Maintain the results at home with the Biolage Advanced fiberstrong Shampoo, Conditioner, and Intra-Cylane Fortifying Cream system.
