Understanding Frizz, Breakage, and Colour Fading: The Hair Health Essentials

Let's be honest, frizzy flyaways, split ends, and fading colour can put a damper on anyone's good hair day. But worry not! Here at Visage Hair Limerick, we're all about healthy, happy hair, and that means understanding the basics of what makes your hair tick.

Frizz: From Flat to Frazzled

Ever wonder why your hair goes from sleek to a wild mane overnight? It all boils down to the cuticle, the outermost layer of your hair strand. Think of it like tiny shingles on a roof. When these shingles lie flat, they trap moisture and keep your hair smooth and shiny. But dry weather, harsh chemicals, and heat styling can lift the cuticle, allowing moisture to escape and causing frizz.

Breakage: The Strength Within

Hair breakage is no fun, but understanding why it happens is the first step to prevention. Each hair strand is a marvel of protein engineering, made up mostly of keratin. This protein gives your hair strength and elasticity. However, chemical treatments, heat styling without protection, and excessive brushing can weaken these keratin bonds, making your hair more prone to breakage, especially at the ends.

Color Fading: The Not-So-Permanent Party

We all love that fresh color feeling, but keeping it vibrant can be a challenge. Here's the lowdown: Hair dye molecules penetrate the hair shaft and deposit color pigments. Unfortunately, these pigments aren't permanent residents. Daily washing, sun exposure, and even chlorine can gradually strip them away, leading to color fading.

Hair porosity also plays a role. High porosity hair absorbs color easily but loses it quickly, while low porosity hair holds color well but can be resistant to initial coloring.
