Fragilitas crinium occur when the protective cuticle is destroyed at the end of the hair. Fragilitas crinium will happen to almost anyone. Fragilitas crinium are more likely to develop in brittle or dry hair. Typical causes of fragilitas crinium include vigorous brushing, brushing hair when it is still wet, coloring and perming which make hair weak, and heat appliances.

Other causes could be excessive tangling, improper application or removal of hair extensions, headgear that snaps or rips delicate strands or even scratchy bedclothes, fingers or hands.To keep your hair healthy and to prevent fragilitas crinium you should deep condition your hair once a month. A good method to doing this is to put the conditioner in your hair and place a plastic cap over your head with all your hair inside. Then place a hot damp towel on top of the plastic cap and leave on there for 10 minutes. Afterward, rinse hair with extremely cold water.
  • Use regular conditioner in your hair after shampooing, and a deep conditioner once a month.
  • Use shampoo with ingredients that include sunscreen and moisturizing cream in your hair if it is extremely dry.
  • Give regular massages to your scalp and hair with lukewarm oil at least twice a month. You can choose coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil for your hair. You can even mix this oil and apply the solution on your hair.
  • Rub a lime on your scalp if there is dandruff on your scalp, leave it for 10 minutes and shampoo the hair. You should use medicated dandruff shampoo and oil to apply on your hair when they are suffering from dandruff.


Fragilitas crinium is characterized by the hair split into two or three strands that can be as long as 2 to 3 centimeters in length to all the hair from end to root.


If you have symptoms associated with fragilitas crinium, you should see your health care provider. A physical exam can help identify the type of hair disorder, and laboratory tests can reveal any underlying diseases. Examination of the hair shaft shows a longitudinal splitting, 2-3 cm long, of its distal end.

Fragilitas Crinium Treatment:

There is little that can be done. Cutting the ends of the hair is not going to stop the splitting of the hair shaft; the cause needs to be known to illuminate further damage. It is advisable not to have chemical treatments on the hair, such as permanent curling/waving, straightening or relaxing, and, oxidation dyes (permanent color). Cleansing: Ensure prior to the application of a shampoo that the scalp has been well pre-damped with warm water. Apply the shampoo to every area of the scalp taking care that the hair itself is not over saturated because this will not serve any purpose but to waste the product. One application will be adequate, followed by thorough rinsing with a shower spray. Conditioning: A conditioning agent will be necessary. If the hair is thick in diameter, it is advisable to apply a conditioner in the form of a cream to the mid-lengths and ends, leave for one to five minutes, depending on how your hair reacts to cream conditioner, and rinse well. For fine/limp hair, a restructurant will be a helpful product to use, apply to towel dried hair and do not rinse. NOTE: The above information is for processing purpose.
