I know this has probably been ask before but does wrapping you hair around in a beehive with a brush cause breakage? Everytime i do it i can see about 10 broken hairs on my shoulder. Is this causing breakage to my hair? I don't do it all the time just right after i rollerset my hair which is about once every two weeks?

I am going to say it all depends.  Wrapping your hair continuously in the same direction is said to cause thinning/breakage and such.  But then there are ppl who wrap their whole lives and never have a problem.

Some people do it with their fingers to avoid breakage. I don't thunk it's that serious so I brush my hair. I don't do it hard though.

When I was relaxed, my hair broke off so bad from wrapping it.  I later found out it was better to do crosswrapping, pin curls, or alternating which side ur wrapping.

Make sure you are moisturized right after getting out from under dryer as well.  I used to put a creamy moisturizer and oil and see breakage.  Now I use the watery type, creamy then oil and I don't see as many broken hairs.

What are some other alternatives?  I noticed that one side of my hair is significantly thinner (though finer) than the other side; and it's normally the side I wrap and lay on.  When I tried to wrap the opposite way, it didn't turn out right.

I would say every week after you wash, alternate the direction of your wrap.  It hard to change it mid-week when you hair is already "established" a direction.

I think repetitive stress is not good for the follicles and it fatigues them over time.  Though I have heard that if you give them a break and move things around a bit, you can maintain strong roots.  After all, it's little bits of muscle that holds our follicles in our scalp.  Give them a workout, change it up a bit.

As for actual breakage, I don't know, maybe the same vulnerable parts of your hair are getting repeated exposure.

I stopped wrapping my hair because it took too long to wrap it anyways b/c it was just fall back down, the top would dry out really bad if I did a wet wrap, there would be breakage and my edged would become tender. so now I cross wrap and comb once a week and I have never looked back! My hair doesn't break and it has thickened up quite alot. Hope this helps

with any hair style you can get breakage if the hairs are repeatedly being pulled in the same direction. the amount varies depending on the strength of your hair, how much tension is applied and the amount of hairs you shed daily.
