Avoid These Bad Styling Habits If You Have Breakage-Prone HairBONJOUR DAH-LING!

Stop and listen up! If you have breakage-prone hair these are the things you need to stop doing straight away to guarantee visible results!

There are several reasons why your hair might suddenly become prone to breakage. It’s not only excessive coloring and dehydration that have their part to play.

Stress may be a factor, poor nutrition and good old family genetics. Scary snapping strands should however serve a sure fire sign that it’s time to switch things up, in the styling and heat setting stakes.

How To Improve Hair Health

Before we dive in with the list of DON’TS, let’s consider first a few DO’s!

A weekly deep-conditioning treatment can be a real hair-savior. Try out something like N4’s Reconstructing Hair Masque to deliver that pret-a-porter glow. Featuring a blend of soy proteins alongside Vitamin B5, it’s packed with deeply replenishing and smoothing natural conditioners.

Another top sleep tip is to switch to a silk pillowcase too. You’ll not only sleep like a Princess, but you’ll wake up looking more like one too!

Breakage-Prone Hair No No’s!

OK, on to the “mane” event! What not to do! Here are our top tips on the bad habits you need to banish to protect bad hair behavior.

Hot Water

We all love a steaming hot shower but that scorching hot water wreaks havoc on weak strands. If you have fragile and breakage-prone hair, you need to treat it like a baby. Softly, softly is the way. Avoid super hot water that will open up an already fragile cuticle and strip it of essential oils. Instead, switch to cool water that will seal the cuticle and help prevent damage. As a further bonus, you’ll also be amazed how much shinier hair looks when you make this subtle showering change.

Heat Setting

This is an easy hack to implement and one that you probably know already but don’t always remember to action, especially when you are in a hurry and just want your hair dried in record time. It may take a little longer to dry your hair, but we highly recommend you use the warm or even the cool setting, never the hot one. Also be sure to keep the hairdryer nozzle at a decent distance away from your head.

Brush Up On Your Technique

Word! You’ve probably been brushing your hair wrong your entire life. You shouldn’t be brushing your hair from root to tip. Instead, brush from the ends and work your way up. Sounds simple but it really is effective.

Easy On The Hair Ties

Avoid super tight ponytails held in place by abrasive ties that can tug on the hair and cause unnecessary breakage. Maybe take a look at silk scrunchies. Just like your recommendation for your pillowcase, a silk hair tie is a great option and they’re pretty darn cute too.

Go Alcohol Free

We don’t mean don’t drink and dry! Sometimes a Friday night dress up session needs a Cosmopolitan on the side. What we do mean is steer well clear of any products that contain harsh ingredients, but in particular alcohol that will cause the hair to go dry and a little bit crispy. All N4 products are packed with natural ingredients and are 100% free of nasties so you’ve nothing to worry about on that score.

Don’t Sleep On It

A lot of us are probably guilty of this one but you should never sleep with your hair up. Always keep it loose if you want to snooze! Or tie it in a simple braid. And a reminder again…invest in that silk pillowcase for the hair and sleep of your dreams

Great shampoo

Clean shampoo

My hair has never felt healthier, softer or smelled better.

Cynthia

The smell was so amazing, had a great lather and made my hair feel incredible. Unfortunately, it made my scalp very oily and even caused me to break-out on my scalp and at my hairline. I have an oily scalp and was looking for a clarifying shampoo to help minimize my oil but this is sadly not the product for me; it seems more suited for dry, damaged and color-treated hair. I took one star off because it didn't clarify but added moisture, another star deducted since it made me break-out and another star removed as the price is exorbitant, especially considering it doesn't accomplish what it's intended for.

By far the best shampoo I have used.

LOVE this shampoo!!! I cannot express this enough. I used to have to wash my hair every day due to dirt and oil collected at the scalp area. Since I've been using this product, I am not in that vicious cycle anymore! I can skip shampooing and thus treating my hair better!

  4. Caseyb

    Best shampoo I have ever used, and I have used a ton! This leaves my hair soft and shiny, and sometimes I don’t have to use a conditioner after I have used it because of how nourishing it is! Love this stuff and have the big bottle!

  5. StephanieS02

    This is a fantastic product. I don’t love it quite as much as the hydrating shampoo, but it smells lovely and leaves my hair clean and soft.

  6. Heather

    This was is perfect for anyone who needs a deep clean. My hair is so weighed down by product after a few days and I was very pleased with how clean and livelier my hair was after using. Smells great too.

  7. Chelsea

    I am obsessed with the line, after a got a few samples from Birch box, I went out and bought a bunch of products, so I was estatic to get new (to me) samples this month from my birchbox. As expected they were amazing. Hair felt clean and not striped. Full of life and healthy. I followed with a few drops of their oil. I Love that they don’t have any crappy chemicals and most of, if not all of their products are vegan.

  8. Tay

    I got like three uses out of a sample packet for this shampoo and that’s impressive!
    A little certainly goes a long, long way..(especially when you have rather short hair) But just like the other products i tried, this smells amazing!
    It’s a different than most shampoo kind of smell in the best way possible. I felt like i was in some kind of high maitanence hollywood salon. My hair felt and looked wonderful, combated my frizziness due to overly curly hair. I just love this product!
    Love all n4’s products (:

  9. Amazing!

    Super rich lather, smells wonderful, and left my wavy hair shiny :). A little goes a very very long way, so start with a small amount and add more as necessary. Enjoy!

  10. Ally

    I’ve heard excellent things about this product . I hope to dry it on my hair someday . I’m sure I won’t be disappointed . I love all their products . ❤️

  11. purplecowzrule

    This is a great product. Smells nice and makes me hair look good. Loves that a little goes a long way.

  12. Reycca1980

    This shampoo makes my hair feel so clean! The smell is amazing and long lasting. My hair shines and is so much tamer just using it. I’m in love!!

  13. purplecowzrule

    This shampoo is great! It smells nice and cleans and freshens my hair. Love this formula and that a little bit goes a long way.

  14. MelodiM89

    This shampoo is my holy grail! I would be one frizzy headed girl without it. It smells so fresh and makes my hair unbelievably shiny!!!

  15. a1nettie

    I am so surprised that a clarifying shampoo can make my hair feel so silky. Normally my hair is “squeeky” clean after a clarifying shampoo. Not with this. It is very thick and I love the scent as well.

  16. jordynhabeck

    Easily the best shampoo I’ve ever used. It smells great and somehow makes my hair super easy to brush.

  17. Fifi

    Cleans and freshens my color! I can’t live with out this product!

  18. emboog

    A weekly must-have for color treated hair and a product that you can feel works.
