There are many ways you can prevent hair from breaking, such as not using so much heat and chemicals etc. But one thing that a lot of people don't realise is, the bobble you tie your hair up with cause a lot of damage. The elastic in the bobble when tied tightly can wear away the hair and eventually cause breakage. The bobbles I recommend to use would be Quifs' Magibobble. They are water resistant, perfect for all hair types, reduces tensions on the scalp and most importantly prevent breakage and split ends. They come in a variety of colours from bright, to clear, to brunette and blonde colours! We stock these in salon and for a box of 5 bobbles they are only £2.95!
