The short answer to this question is yes. The long answer is that I don’t think I’ve ever met anyone who has experienced 0% breakage. I'd imagine that their hair would have to be at a level of perfect moisture 100% of the time and experiencing no friction, ever. In theory it is possible, but I don’t have any statistics on the reality of the situation to share with you, so don’t be disheartened if like me you feel that you haven't been successful in achieving this just yet. It's a great goal to aim for though!
Hair Strand Ready to Break
To answer this question properly let’s first be clear on the definition. There is a difference between hair breakage and hair shedding. When hair breaks it does so because it is very weak. This can usually be a result of heat/chemical damage. This can also be a result of poor hair care practices, causing it to break off before the end of its hair cycle. When hair sheds however, it is because your hair strand's cycle has come to an end. This and is absolutely normal, we all naturally shed between 50 and 100 strands of hair a day. If like me you cover your hair, then when you take your scarf off at the end of the day, you may see all your suicide strands in one go. This can be overwhelming, but if you don't cover your hair, and you leave your hair out loose, you may not even notice it falling off your shoulders throughout the day.
Hair Brush Full of Shedding Hair
I was on the underground the other day and there was a gentleman next to me who was reading his book. All of a sudden a young lady’s hair strand floated onto it; he didn’t even look alarmed. He just brushed it off and continued reading. And the young girl from who’s head it fell, didn’t even notice, maybe because she had hundreds spare? Hair that we shed is often followed by a new hair in it's place. New hair is always good news! (when it is on our scalp). So this is reassuring. Do you know anyone who has 0% breakage? How did they achieve it? Please leave your answers in our comments section elow, I'd love to know the details of their hair care routine. Happy Hair Hugging! x
