Breakage is growth's worst enemy. Learn how to stop it!

Using products that contain essential nutrients promotes hair growth and reduces breakage

6. Stay Away from Harsh Chemicals

Chemically treated hair can be extremely damaging to your hair and scalp. If you need to relax your hair, seek advice from a professional stylist. They will better advise you as to what is best for your hair type.

However, consider going chemical-free when relaxing your hair. Nu-Gro Nu-Laxer hair relaxer kit will give you the relaxed effect, minus the harsh chemicals and side effects that other relaxers may cause.

7. Avoid Excessive Manipulation.

Too much brushing, combing and washing can further damage your hair. Try to avoid washing your hair every day as this can cause your hair to lose its natural moisture, creating dry and brittle hair.

Once your hair is in place, leave it be.

8. Protect Your Hair

Exposure to sunlight and chlorine or salt water can dry your hair, causing it to weaken and lead to breakage. Follow good summer hair care habits such as wearing a hat or scarf on hot sunny days or a swimming cap to protect your hair from chlorine or saltwater when in the pool or at the beach.

9. Use the Proper Brush or Comb

Make sure to use the proper comb or brush for your hair. Use a wide toothed comb or pick to comb your hair after washing it. Be careful not to comb your hair when it is completely wet, as wet hair tends to be more fragile. Use a leave-in-conditioner, such as Nu-Gro Leave-in-Conditioner to make it easier to comb through your hair.

10. Proper Nutrition

The best hair breakage treatment can sometimes just be good nutrition. As with the rest of your body, proper nutrition and vitamins will reflect the health of your hair. If you eat a healthy diet you will grow stronger and healthier inside and out. A diet high in fruits, vegetables, protein and plenty of fluids may help with attaining the luscious locks that you desire.

Also, try using products that contain vitamins. Nu-Gro All-Natural Liquid Hair-Gro Oil contains olive oil and vitamins E and D which help promote healthy hair growth without any harsh chemicals that can lead to dry or brittle strands.
