Brittle hair can give a hard time for most of the people and it occurs due to various reasons. If there is a lack of minerals and vitamins in the hair can become one of the main reason behind the brittle hair. There are few simple methods that can be used to avoid brittle hair without going to a hair specialist.
Avoid using hairstyling tools such as blow-dryers, flat irons and curling irons as they can make the hair brittle and if you want to use these tools set it with low heat. Consume food which is high in zinc along with foods such as potatoes, almonds, chicken, walnuts as well as pecans. Don’t apply too much pressure on the hair while washing it and use the shampoo as well as hair conditioner that are suitable for your hair type. Cover your hair with a scarf while going out in the sun and wash the hair once in two days. If you have taken bath in chlorine water try to rinse it immediately to avoid your hair becoming brittle. Another option to prevent the hair from getting brittle, take a castor oil in a bowl and heat it using a stove with low heat. Once the oil becomes slightly warm, apply it all over the hair and massage it gently over the hair as well as scalp. Leave the castor oil on your hair for 15 minutes before washing it and condition the hair without fail.
