Hair is vulnerable to any & everything and once the hair has lost it's natural hair structure alignment which is the core protection of your hair and which it plays a major role in the overall growth and health of your hair that can become affected physically or chemically by the vulnerability of your hair after the alteration of your hair's natural structure that has been abruptly changed that will soon become even more vulnerable & altered by poor diet, medication, smoking, stress, diseases of the scalp, as well as lost of color the hair melony gradually disappear (gray hair) which makes your hair vulnerable along with being resistant to any and everything.
But when those three layers of skin serving as protection becomes extremely damaged you will begin to loose both your porosity& elasticity as well as your hair's natural conditioner "Sebum" then you are also going to loose your hair's moisture loss all at the same time then you know that you may have cuticle damage the inner atmosphere of your hair structure and this will cause your hair to become brittle, dull, increase number of split ends, excessive tangles, fly-away fibers, lack of body from exposure to your environment, mechanical manipulations, chemical process, thermal styling, and of course shampoos and once your hair is damaged there is no real way to completely restore your hair which makes hair unique and give your hair its characteristic of being the only body structure that is completely renewable without scarring meaning you can cut all the damaged areas of your damaged hair ridding your damaged hair.
Hair damage happens when you have Cuticle Loss when the cuticle begins to fray and crack within your hair structure and the hair shaft experiences massive cracks which causes rupturing along its length, damaging the cortex and medulla causing the hair to loose the Keratin materials within the hair structure making the hair shaft thinner or entire portions of the cuticle alternately layer altogether removed leaving the hair fiber open and unprotected as the fibers fray and give the hair shaft a ragged, unstable alignment with severe damage causing loss of elasticity & the hair is unable to stretch and recover adequately in which the hair reaches its tensile strength that makes your hair reaches its breaking point that begins to shows outside the hair strands and breakage of your hair begins to breaks easily when mechanically manipulated by brushing and combing which results in even more significant breakage of the hair as the more and more the hair structure begins to unravel you will begin to experience hair thinning, hair loss, and hair damaged upon your hair strands. Both porosity and moisture loss are a result of cuticle damage meaning that the cuticle layer is no longer tightly aligned and is no longer providing adequate protection to the inner hair shaft. Sebum is not properly being distributed along the hair strand due to a misaligned cuticle layer causing the hair cortex degradation and also the resultant of your hair porosity are the fundamental reasons that hair loses pliability and becomes alternately straw-like in feel & appearance, splitting of ends. Split ends are essentially longitudinal ruptures at the end of the hair shaft and because they expose the inner structures. Split ends are typically dry and quite brittle causing excessive tangling which may make the cause the hair to be very difficult to comb because of the frayed fibers snagging, tugging and pulling one another producing fly-away fibers and fly-away fibers hair carries a relatively high electrostatic charge causing hair strands to repel one another and the hair is highly unmanageable and the hair won't hold curls well and does not have the fullness and “Body” in which hair volume is known as and therefore you create hair loss and damage but luckily there are treatments for all hair damage though it is not a permanent fix it is a solution for your hair care needs and Healthy Hair Plus can help you find the right product for your hair care treatment and also check out Hair, Beauty, and Health website and check out some great products for your hair care treatment as well.

Now Essential Oils are your scented oils. We want to use Essential Oils for hair because they stimulate the sebaceous glands in the scalp to produce more oil, or we use Essential Oils for hair because they also restore the glands back to normal too! While essential oils often have a pleasant aroma, their chemical makeup is complex and their benefits vast—which makes them much more than something that simply smells good. Essential oils are extracted from aromatic plant sources via steam distillation, and are highly concentrated and far more potent than dry herbs. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds that are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin with its pure, unadulterated stimulus which makes Essential Oils translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue. Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The modern use of essential oils has continued to grow rapidly as health scientists and medical practitioners continue to research and validate the numerous health and wellness benefits of therapeutic-grade essential oils which you can find on Healthy Hair Plus. Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. Essential oils are usually administered by one of three methods: diffused aromatically, applied topically, or taken internally as dietary supplements. The chemical structure of essential oils also allows them to be absorbed into the bloodstream via the skin for internal benefit throughout the body which makes them very beneficial to Healthy Hair growth that has been damaged or distressed. Be sure to use only 100% pure therapeutic-grade essential oils and follow all label warnings and instructions.

There are ways you can trim your hair which is while your hair is wet or dry all depending on the type and texture of the hair you may have. You will need a cutting cape & comb, neck strips, clips, shears, and some split ends which you can find all these supplies and more on my squidoo lens in the amazon section on Hair, Beauty, and Health. If giving a wet trim is your know how you should know to lightly moisten the hair with a spray bottle and section your hair off into four or five sections with the hair clips to help keep your hair from being in the way of the section of hair you are trimming. Once hair is sectioned off part hair into thin pie slices and proceed to clip your hair ends some areas may be different lengths depending on the amount of damaged and nature of your ends than other parts of your hair due from the extent of your damage but remember hair is the only non destructible thing on the human body so with that in mind just know that your hair will grow back even longer, stronger, and healthier . Do this step section by section until you have completed your entire head and the same steps go for a dry trim cut as well for those of you who is very good and prefer to do dry cuts. You will be amazed at how just trimming your ends will make such a big difference to the feel, strength, elasticity, and texture or your hair once you have removed those dead ends and allowed the new Healthy Hair in.
