Split-ends are notorious for ruining our dreams of having long locks of hair. They’re not season-specific either and they can happen anytime if you’re not careful enough. Split ends are literally tiny splits at the end of your hair that can easily be seen. Some women ruin their chances of recovering from those split ends by further splitting the apart.
If you want to get rid of split-ends and grow healthy Rapunzel-like hair, then there are a few tips you need to abide by. While none of these can guarantee complete split end proofing, they can definitely reduce the chances of them forming.
#1: Go Easy on the Brushing
Brushing your hair with a regular bristle brush or a comb both can be damaging to your hair. Sure, you might need to straighten and untangle the frizz in your hair once in awhile but brushing too frequently can cause split-ends to form a lot faster than they normally would. Brushing or running your hand in your hair can also damage your hair and cause them to get split-ends.
#2: Use Heat Less!
Styling your hair with heating appliances like the curling or straightening iron or even the blow dryer can have serious deleterious effects on your hair. Try heatless methods for styling your hair and use these appliances only when you absolutely have to.
#3: Maintain a Healthy Diet
Going on a keratin-friendly, healthy diet can significantly improve the condition of your hair and reduce the chances of split-ends forming. Drinking the recommended intake of water and taking vitamins and minerals like zinc in your food or as supplements can also defeat split-ends and help you grow long luscious locks of hair. Foods like green veggies, nuts and sunflower seeds are all proven to benefit your hair.
#4: Don’t Use Shampoo Everyday
Chemicals in shampoos and conditioners swear to help your hair grow long and beautiful but at the end of the day, they are still chemicals that can have negative effects on your hair if used too excessively. Shampooing once or twice a week is adequate and can help to keep your hair healthy and split-end free.
