You have to figure out why it’s breaking off first. Breakage is caused by either lack of moisture or lack of protein. If it was really dramatic breakage (like breaking all in one day or a few days) and your ends are hard and crunchy then it’s likely too much protein and you need a really moisturizing conditioner at least once a week until the protein lessens. You should take a look at the products you use and see if they have a lot of proteins in the ingredients or if they say restructuring, restoring, strengthening then it’s a protein product.
If it’s too much moisture causing the breakage (which is not likely) then a one time protein treatment will do the trick.
One thing you should do either way is wash your hair with soft water, because that could be a minor factor.
