Hair is an essential part of our appearance, and well-maintained hair can help us look and feel our best. Proper hair care can help keep the scalp clean and prevent scalp infections, dandruff, and other issues. In some cases, hair loss, dullness, or other problems can be a sign of a nutrient deficiency or an underlying health condition. Our hair protects our scalp from environmental factors such as UV rays, pollution, and harsh weather conditions. When our hair looks good, we feel good, which can boost our confidence; therefore it is essential to follow a hair care routine.
Dull and Damaged Hair Symptoms
Dull and damaged hair often appears dry and brittle, and split ends occur when the ends of the hair become frayed and split. Healthy hair has a natural shine, but dull and damaged hair appears dull and lifeless. Damaged hair can become tangled and knotted, making it difficult to comb or style. Hair becomes weak and gets more prone to breakage and hair loss.
