"Hair breakage is external and likely caused by home styling habits (i.e. ponytails, excessive heat, cotton). Hair loss is internal and is likely caused by stress, hormonal imbalance, medication and genetic pre-disposition.
The solution to the problem will depend on the cause. If all else fails you may need to get a physical to be certain all is well with your health. Once you know the cause of the loss it will be easier to address your particular needs. Some other causes of hair breakage are dryness, over processing from chemicals and color, over brushing and combing. There are a great number of women who have thinning hair. This condition can result from a number of contributing factors, some of which are the same as for hair loss and breakage (hormonal imbalance, medications, medical conditions, scalp infections, poor nutrition, stress, heredity, and excessive tension in hair styles. Keep in mind, hair loss can progress or advance, if left untreated.
Maintaining a healthy home regimen combined with proper treatment at your hair salon are your best chances of combating this problem."
