Included hair products in your hair care routine but still dealing with breakage ? Are you handling your wet hair in the right way? When talking about wet hair, it is important to remember that this is the time when your hair is most fragile. So it is important to give your wet hair extra love and care.

Hair on the scalp is made up of 95% keratin, a protein which is protected by the outer cuticle layer. When the hair is wet, the cuticle lifts up, which makes the hair open to damage. This mostly occurs after a shower. There are many reasons for this like weak hair structure, lack of natural oils and increases knots and tangles.

Why Does Wet Hair Break Easily?

The hydrogen bonds holding its shape break when the hair is wet. Making the hair on your scalp more weak and fragile. Wet hair loses its natural oils, which reduces the protection and increases the chances of damage. The hair strands when wet become elastic in nature. If they are pulled while brushing, it leads to split ends and damaged hair. Another reason is the pH level of the water. If you use tap water it can damage your hair as it has a high pH level.

In order to maintain healthy hair, you need to gently handle it.
