to prevent split ends
is a longitudinal splitting of hair fiber better known
as "split ends". It develops after the protective cuticle
has been stripped away from the end of hair fibers as
a result of over processing. Any chemical or physical
trauma that weathers the hair may eventually lead to
split ends. Vigorous brushing can even induce it. Typically
the damaged hair fiber splits into two or three strands
and the split may be two or three centimeters in length.
However the greater the damage to the hair fiber the
more severe the split ends may be.
The best treatment for split ends is to cut the hair
and remove the split and damaged hair by receiving regular
trims to maintain blunt smooth ends.
Does anything really fix split
You cannot mend split ends; the only way to get rid
of them is to trim your hair occasionally, tiny trims
every four weeks, and following with deep-conditioning
treatments in order to keep strands supple and flexible.
Use good conditioners and don't blow dry your hair on
high heat. This type of a maintenance routine should
ensure that splits don't crop up at all.
Things to remember:
1. Don't brush hair when it's wet, because that's when
it is at its most vulnerable.
2. Cut down on hair dryers, straightening irons, curling
irons and hot curlers.
3. Buy a natural-bristle brush that won't pull on hair
and ultimately break it off, thereby causing a possible
4. Wear a hat to minimize sun damage.
5. Condition after shampooing, and use a deep conditioner
once a month.
