Since having a side fridge which covered half my face many years ago, which required straightening every day my hair has suffered major breakage. After managing to control the breakage, I've noticed recently that the breakage is back and the hair around my scalp is breaking (bad). I've stopped using heat on my hair and only using straighteners as and when required. Normal intensive moisturisers have done nothing to prevent the breakage, and I'm at a bit of a standstill with what to do.

Over the last few weeks I've been using Redken's Extreme Anti-Snap Leave in Treatment every time I've washed my hair and as much as this isn't a miracle product I have noticed some differences in the general appearance of my hair. The extreme range by Redken is aimed at distressed hair - would I say my hair is distressed, not really. However unlike the CAT Protein Treatment (review here) this is applied to towel dried hair after shampooing and conditioning. I normally apply this to my roots and also ends of my hair, before applying a heat protector (whatever is lying about).

Since using this I have found that my hair is more manageable and less knotty when trying to style it. However what I have noticed is that this has potentially halted the snapping - I've noticed that when I brush my hair or wash it, I'm hardly loosing any hair. This has been the winner for me, the fact that I'm not finding hair everywhere makes this product a winner in my books. How do you prevent breakages in your hair? What products do you use - leave me a comment.
