Harsh ingredients found in styling products like gels and sprays, as well as chemicals in treatments such as colorants, straighteners and perms can potentially damage the hair follicle and promote hair loss.
(This is not to be confused with breakage caused by styling techniques, which is often mistaken for hair loss because of the resulting thinner mane.)
Many styling products contain abrasive ingredients like sulfates and sodium, which, over time, dry out and damage hair, prompting it to break when heat and styling tools are used. Therefore, it’s best best to limit your use of products.
However, if you can’t get your hair to obey on its own, switch to products that contains protein.
