After a haircut, you leave your hairdresser with beautiful, split end–free hair. Unfortunately this does not last long. Heat tools, brushing, coloring and other factors inevitably cause splint ends.
Prevention of split ends
- The best way to prevent split ends is keeping your hair nourished and moisturized. Use deep conditioning masks or natural oils to keep your hair moisturized. Also consider trying a leave-in conditioner. They tend to be more effective as they stay on your hair and protect them from heat and other damaging factors.
- Reduce heat sources. Our use of blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons has reached a level of addiction. Most people are aware of that fact that heat damages hair and yet continue to use harmful styling tools because they make sculpting hair so easy. Instead, practice air drying your hair as much as possible. Also, consider toning down the temperature of your shower, especially if you love to take longer showers.
- Be kind with your hair. Use sulfate, paraben and alcohol free hair products. Towel dry your hair gently – do not harshly twist and wring it. Be patient and gentle when detangling your hair. Do not pull split ends.
Cure of split ends
Once you have split ends there are very little you can do apart from trimming. If you do not want a hair cut, your best option is to use a split-ends repairing product like Marrakesh Endz. It contains a powerful blend of nutrient-rich Argan Oil, ultra fortifying Hemp Seed Oil, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, and Panthenol. It seals and repairs split ends, while preventing future damage. After use ends will naturally look and feel thicker with long lasting frizz and static control.
Finally, the immediate and most obvious way to avoid split ends is to simply cut them off. Regular trimmings remove the frayed hair and allow for healthy hair growth. The average time between haircuts for women is between 8-12 weeks, but you can do more or less dependent on your hair type.
