Stop Split Ends

Don't you hate it when you spend the money and time to get a quality haircut only to find a week later, upon closer inspection, that you're starting to get those split ends again? While your hair can still look pretty and healthy even with split ends, if you can avoid and stop those split ends, then you should go for it. If you want to tackle your split ends, then you need to know a little bit more about them.

Something you should realize is that having split ends doesn't mean that your hair is irreparably unhealthy—that's a common misconception about split ends that doesn't hold true. Your hair can be generally healthy and still have split ends. Each individual hair is made up of layers, the topmost layer being dead cells that can easily wear away, leaving the core of the hair strand to unravel and come loose. I don't want to mislead you and tell you that if you have split ends that you have nothing to worry about, because if you do have split ends, your hair could probably use a little tender loving care. But I also don't want you to think that having split ends is the end of the world. Split ends are easily treated and prevented if you just take the time to give your hair some extra time.

First of all, you need to use the right hair brush. Don't use a hair brush with sharp bristles, but rather choose a brush with a soft pad and soft or rounded bristles. A paddle brush or other wide brush is best for your hair, wet or dry. You want to be nice to your hair and using harsh, bristly brushes won't work for that.

If you can, avoid shampooing every day, and when you use a blow dryer or other heat appliance (like a curling iron or straightener), either use a leave-in conditioner, or find another way to style your hair, because those high-heat appliances don't do much for the health of your hair. You'll also want to use conditioners, especially if your hair is dry and brittle.

Another useful tip is to get regular trims, especially if you're growing your hair out. Your hair won't be able to grow like you want it to if its unhealthy and has split ends. You can either use a cuticle trimmer yourself and snip off split ends, or you can go into your hair stylist and have him or her give you a quick trim. This is one of the best ways to keep your hair healthy and split-end free. If you've tried these tricks before and they haven't worked, then it might be a good idea to go see your hair stylist for a more professional opinion.
