Hair Split Ends

2808

Split Ends in the HairSplit ends in the hair are the most common problem among those who don’t have their hair cut regularly. When hair grows to a certain length, the protective layer of the hair, a cuticle, breaks down, causing the hair fiber to split. It often happens with hair ends, but hair may also split all the way down. As a rule, split ends are 1-inch long, and they are lighter than the rest of hair.

Tips to Avoid Split Ends

Here are some tips to help you avoid split ends or delay the problem.

  • Drink more water. Water tones our body and hair and moisturizes hair from within.
  • Do not brush your hair often. Frequent brushing damages the hair cuticle.
  • Never comb wet hair as it might weaken your hair.
  • Instead of brushes with metal bristles, use a hair brush or a comb with sparse bristles. A wooden hair brush is also a good option.
  • Choose shampoo and conditioner carefully to fit the type and condition of your hair.
  • Do not trim your hair with blunt scissors. It makes split ends even worse.
Split ends are caused by physical or chemical stress of your hair.

Hairstyling to Cause Split Ends

Avoid hairstyling compositions (such as hairsprays, fixing gels, mousses, hair wax) and shampoos with alcohol content. Alcohol dries hair out and makes it brittler. When drying hair with a hairdryer, use cool air blow. Using hot air blow dries hair out and makes it thinner and brittler.

Hair Dye to Cause Split Ends

Do not dye your hair often. Whatever the quality and price your hair dye is, it dries and weakens hair anyway.

The hair starts splitting when it needs more moisture and loses natural fats (surface skin fat). Surface skin fat is a natural fatty oil that saturates your hair.

How to Remove Split Ends

If you’ve faced the problem of split ends, all you need is to cut them off and keep doing it every 6-8 weeks as well as to pick split end treatment products.

Hair Care in Summer

Get rid of hairclips as their uneven (or jagged) ends may damage and even break your hair. Protect your hair from sunlight. Excessive exposure to the sun without headwear also dries your hair out.

Moisturizing is what makes your hair look beautiful and healthy.

Hair Care in Cold Weather

In cold or bad weather, you should get your long hair into a bun to prevent static hair caused by the contact with woolen or synthetic clothing as well as to protect your hair from harmful environmental influences.
