How to stop hair breakage at the root?

Seeing you hair break is disheartening – especially at the root. Hair that surrounds the face is finer and thinner rendering it more susceptible to breakages. When hair is wet, it is in its most fragile state meaning that towel drying your hair ranks top of the list as the biggest culprit for hair breakage at the root. Other factors include too-tight ponytails, hair dyes, styling tools and UV rays. While it may be impossible to permanently avoid daylight and the burning desire for an up-do, there are a number of products available that can aid in reducing hair breakage at the root.
