Don’t Let Split Ends Ruin Your Hair
Split ends can be a downer to your hair style. It’s the unfortunate truth! While it can be frustrating when you begin to notice you’ve developed split ends in your hair, they can also do more damage to the rest of your hair. We’re going to assume that you’ve pulled apart, split ends a time or two in your life (no judgement zone, here!) and in doing so you likely noticed that the split end worked its way up your hair pretty far. When split ends aren’t taken care of far enough in advance, it can lead to the risk of them creating damage throughout your hair. We have some tips so you don’t let split ends ruin your hair:
Get Trims More Regularly
It may seem obvious, but so many of us don’t schedule hair trims with our hair stylists as often as we should. Getting a hair trim is one of the best ways to get rid of split ends altogether and prevent them from ruining the rest of your hair. Your hair stylist is able to see how much length needs to be trimmed off to get rid of those pesky split ends and leave you with much healthier, stronger hair.
Add More Moisture
Split ends are typically the result of hair that’s been damaged, and it’s highly likely that if you’re experiencing split ends your hair doesn’t have as much moisture as it needs to avoid further damage from occurring. The answer to this problem? Adding more moisture! We often stress the significance moisture plays in a healthy hair care routine, and this is especially vital when you’re trying to avoid further damage from taking place. Adding a deep conditioning treatment into your weekly hair care routine is a must for you, and some experts would suggest enlisting in the help of a leave-in conditioner to round out the conditioning routine for your hair. Even if you have oily hair, conditioning is important for you. The trick is to choose conditioning products that are formulated to work with your hair type-this will aid in avoiding more OIL production in your hair.
Be Cautious with Heat
Heat, no matter how careful you are, can cause additional damage to your hair. This is especially true when you already have split ends. We’re not saying that you need to let go of your precious curling iron (or flat iron), but we are saying it’s time to take a step back from using them as often as you have been. If you’ve been using your heated styling tools every day, or nearly every day we suggest scaling that back to as little as possible. This will give your hair a chance to repair and heal itself-as well as prevent the damage from becoming much more predominant throughout the rest of your hair. In addition, when you DO use heat on your hair, it’s a MUST to apply heat protectant product to your hair before doing so.
