Split ends are a common problem and unfortunately we all have to deal with it. The leading cause for split ends is the hair shaft losing its natural moisture making the strands split. Take a look at this informative picture for some amazing tips and tricks to bid adieu to split ends!
1) Get a Trim
The best way to avoid split ends is to get your hair trimmed on a regular basis.
2) Beat the Heat
Styling hair can cause major split ends but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop straightening or blow drying your hair. All you have to do is limit how much heat you subject to your tresses. Nowadays there are hair stylers that have adjustable heat levels that work right on fleek without damaging your hair.
Even hot water showers strip away the moisture off the hair so make sure you always rinse your hair with cool water at the end of every shower.
3) Shampoo & condition correctly
Most of the times when we shampoo we tend to over wash our hair and apply too much shampoo even at the ends. We even apply a lot of conditioner to the roots which makes them greasy in less than a day. One should always shampoo the roots and apply conditioner on the length of the hair.
4) Comb it out
Always use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your tresses. Hair tends to break and split more when it’s wet.
The most effective way to get rid of split ends is to get them cut at regular intervals especially for women trying to grow their length. Lack of proper nutrition and moisture can also worsen your hair’s health and continue splitting up to the length of your hair.
