Here are some ways how to know if your hair is damaged-
- YOUR ENDS MAY APPEAR SHABBY AND WEAK.
Your hair’s ends reveal a lot of information. Because they are the oldest component of your hair, they require the greatest care and attention. If something is wrong with your hair, the answer is generally at your ends. Take a good look at the ends of your hair; if they appear to be very thin, this is a clear sign of damage. Split ends are the most common cause of hair damage at the ends.
- DETANGLING TAKES A LOT LONGER THAN IT USUALLY DOES.
Another ways to tell if your hair is damaged is if detangling your hair takes considerably longer than usual, even with many conditioners piled on to help give your hair some glide. This indicates that you have many split ends and that your hair’s cuticles have been damaged, leaving your hair to become tangled unnecessarily.
- HAIR WITH BUMPY STRANDS
Take a strand of your hair and run it through it; if it feels bumpy down, you have many single strand knots. You can don’t much to get rid of single strand knots once they’ve formed, but you can prevent them from forming again. You should be aware that single strand knots are not the only cause of a rough hair strand. The bumpiness you’re experiencing could be due to holes in the hair strands produced by breakage.
- BRITTLE AND DRY
Moisture is essential for all hair types, especially those with curly or kinky hair. You leave your hair vulnerable to the weather elements and whatever else it comes into contact with if you don’t use the right hydration measures. Your hair is similar to a plant in that it cannot grow without water. Anything that isn’t expanding is either dying or, at best, stagnant is also signs that you have damaged hair.
