1. What is split ends and what is hair breakage?

Who does not know that? You stand in front of the mirror, look at your hair and discover those unsightly, split ends. But is it split ends or hair breakage? The two terms are often used interchangeably, but they represent different problems. Split ends occur when the outer protective layer of the hair is damaged and the individual hair fibers split. Hair breakage, on the other hand, occurs when the hair breaks off in a certain place, for example due to too much tension or mechanical stress. To tell the difference between split ends and hair breakage, there are some signs to look out for. With split ends, the ends of the hair are visibly split and feel brittle. The hair can also appear brittle and dry. In the case of hair breakage, however, short broken hairs can be seen along the length of the hair. The hair breaks off in different places and appears weakened. Good hair care is essential to prevent split ends and hair breakage. Using high-quality products that are specifically tailored to the needs of damaged hair can help. Regular trimming of the ends is also important to remove existing split ends. A balanced diet and sufficient moisture (pay attention to ingredients such as argan oil or keratin) are also beneficial for healthy hair.
