If you are not getting enough nutrients, your hair can have split ends and your hair can break. Your body needs enough nutrition because it is what causes hair growth. Because Protein is considered the building blocks of life, first make sure to get enough protein in your diet. Also, non-organic hair products can cause breakage.
