How to Avoid Split Ends

One or two split ends here and there are pretty much unnoticeable unless you get really close. It’s only when your hair starts showing many split ends when your appearance start look unsightly. Your hair appears dull, messy and lifeless.

Although split ends can happen to all types of hair, typically you will see the most on long, brittle or dry hair.

Split ends cannot be repaired. When the protective cuticle is removed, it cannot be replaced. While there are several options for treating split ends, the best way to get rid of it is to trim it off with a pair of sharp scissors.

To prevent split ends simply avoid the following:

Avoid over dying and colouring,

If you color, perm, or chemically relax your hair, waiting as long as you can between treatments and using high-moisture shampoo, conditioner, and styling products can help keep it looking smooth and healthy.

Avoid chemicals

Many common chemicals can dry or break down hair cuticles, leaving it vulnerable to splitting. You should always wash your hair after swimming, especially in chlorinated pools or hot tubs, and since the salt in your own body sweat can be hard on your hair, it’s also a good idea to shower after a workout or any other activity that leaves you feeling sweaty.

Avoid over brushing the hair while wet.

Hair is extremely fragile after it is washed. So avoid over brushing and pulling when hair is wet.

Protect your hair from heat

Regular blow drying and heat styling can make hair dry, brittle, and more prone to split ends. Letting your hair air dry more often and working with your hair’s natural texture rather than fighting it with straighteners or hot rollers and curling irons will help prevent hair breakage and splitting. If you must blow dry, straighten, or curl your hair, use a lower heat setting and apply a heat protection spray or serum before styling to give your hair an extra shot of moisture and coat the hair shaft with additional line of defense against the heat.

Avoid the sun

Heat and UV rays from the sun can dry and damage your hair just as they do your skin. If you’ll be spending time in the sun, a wide-brimmed hat is the most certain way to keep harmful rays off your hair (and your face, too), but if you aren’t a hat wearer, many brands of leave-in conditioner are formulated to contain sunscreen. These products are most effective if you work them into your hair with your hands to coat as many individual strands as possible, as thoroughly as possible.

Avoid Over washing and use of poor quality hair products

Avoid washing your hair too often and with poor quality shampoo or conditioning products. Avoid the overuse of waxes, sprays, and gels. Make sure you shampoo your hair with a quality product such as an organic hair care product or

Avoid Inferior Hair Styling Tools

Avoid using styling tools that are inferior. This means that the tools are snagging or ripping the hair, thus damaging it. Typically, this would include tools such as synthetic combs or brushes, brush rollers, and so on.

Avoid excessive brushing

Brushing causes added friction and tension to the hair follicle that will lead to breakage in the hair shaft and damage to the hair ends.
