What causes my hair to be stressed?
Chemical processes can cause hair to be stressed. We often find that highlighted hair appears thick at the roots. This thickness gradually thins out towards the end. Due to damage on the cortex the hair loses body and breaks off. This is known as a chemical cut. During chemical treatments, washing and heat treatment hair loses what is inside. The substance that is lost is known as intercellular cement. The bulk of the hair is made up of intercellular cement, when you shampoo your hair or when you subject your hair to various chemical processes, you lose intercellular cement. The collagen contained in the shampoo artificially replaces the intercellular cement. Your hair will feel thicker and more substantial towards the middle lengths and ends of hair.
