How strong is your hair? Try this simple test
THE WAY YOUR HAIR LOOKS DOESN'T TELL YOU HOW STRONG IT IS. HERE'S A SIMPLE (PAINLESS!) TEST YOU CAN DO TO SEE HOW STRONG OR RESILIENT YOUR HAIR IS. ALL IT TAKES IS A SINGLE STRAND OF HAIR.
First, remove a strand of hair from above your ear. Be sure to grab it firmly as close to the root as possible to keep the hair strand in its original state. If the strand breaks before you pull it out, your hair is definitely very weak-and you don't need to finish this test. In fact, you should give your scalp & hair treatment right now. Next, hold the strand of hair between your index finger and your thumb.
Using your other hand, run your fingernail down the strand from the top to the end till it springs into a curl. Pull the strand of curly hair taut for a few seconds and release. If it goes back to the curly position? Good news! Your hair has a great level of strength and is in good condition. If it becomes straight or springs back into looser or more curls, it means your hair is weak and needs treatment.
A great place to start is by providing your hair with the nourishment it needs. And don't forget your scalp as a well-nourished scalp is the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair.
