Why Do You Have Split Ends?

 

They occur for a number of reasons, but the most common are:

  • Heat – Frequent use of hairdryers, irons and similar tools end up damaging the hair. If you must use these tools don’t forget to apply a heat protectant product.
  • Sun – Over exposure to the sun damages the hair and makes it dry. Again use a product to protect your hair from sunlight and a hat.
  • Harsh Brushing – Go easy when untangling your hair. If you aren’t careful it could break your hair or split your ends. Using untangling products and wide tooth combs will make it easier.
  • Chemical Treatments – Who doesn’t like a change in color or hairstyle? But it comes with a cost. The chemicals used in those treatments make the hair drier. This could lead to damaged hair and split ends. Use a hair repair treatment once or twice a week to lock in moisture.

Side note: I know you probably don’t want to hear this, but I will tell you anyway. The best way to deal with split ends is to trim them. It is the only way to prevent further damage.

Regular visits to the salon are recommended for a reason. No only keeps the hair healthier, but it also makes it grow faster and stronger. And this will prevent breakage and split ends. Isn’t that what you want?

Having said that, there are things you can do to prevent and repair split ends before the damage get too serious.

Let’s start with ways to take care of your hair at home.

2. Aloe Vera DIY Hair Serum

 

I have made this serum and I really like it. The recipe is made by a chemist. The only downside is that is in Spanish, but I have translated most of it. Just check the video to see how she prepares the serum.

 
 

Ingredients you need:

Vegetal glycerin (2.5 grams)
Xanthan gum (1 gram)
Distilled water (20 milliliters)
Aloe vera gel (20 grams)
Jojoba oil or melted coconut oil (10 drops)
Grapefruit seed extract (10 drops) or all spectrum preservative.
Fragrance or preferred essence (5 drops)

How to make it:

To be precise with the measurements you will need a multi-function digital scale.

  • Start by measuring the Xanthan gum
  • Next measure the Glycerin
  • Add the Xanthan gum to the glycerin
  • Mix well
  • Now measure the distilled water and aloe vera and mix them together.
  • Incorporate the distilled water/alove vera mixture to the glycerin/xanthan mixture.
  • Mix it really well
  • Add the jojoba or coconut oil and mix well.
  • Add the fragrance of your choice (optional)
  • Add the grapefruit seed extract (natural preservative to make the serum last longer).
  • Alternatively add a broad spectrum preservative of your choice.
  • Make sure there are no lumps.
  • Transfer to a container with lid.
  • The serum has a silky texture similar to the ones you buy in shops.

How to use it:

# Rub the serum between your fingers and apply to the ends of your hair (a tiny amount is enough). Keep it refrigerated to make it last longer.

[color-box]TIP – The serum is better absorbed when applied over towel dried hair. It also makes untangling hair easier.[/color-box]

Salon Hair Treatments

 

1. Repairing Damaged Ends Treatment

 

Consist on the application of a special product that repairs and seals broken damaged ends. It last up to 4 weeks and is especially good to protect the hair from further damaged.

 

2. Intensive Salon Treatment

 

Ask for this treatment at the salon if your hair is dry and dull. Excellent to lock in moisture and prevent hair breakage and damage.  

 

3. Keratin Treatment

 

This treatment is especially good if you have frizzy or lackluster hair. It works by smoothing out the hair and restoring shine. The hair will appear smoother and healthier.

After a keratin treatment at the salon you won’t need to straighten your hair at home for few months. This is a plus because you can have a break from using hair styling tools

 

On a Final Note

 

As you can see there are many tips, tricks, homemade remedies and products that will keep get rid of split ends without having to cut your hair. But remember that the best treatment is prevention.

Don’t go crazy with chemical treatments and styling tools. In this case less is more.

If you are dreaming of longer, healthier and stronger hair go and have a trim. The longer you put it off, the more damage you will do to your hair.

Crash diets are also very bad news for hair and your health. Use products that are nourishing and eat a hair friendly diet to strengthen hair from within.

What are the best foods for hair? Proteins found in eggs and fish, food rich in omega 3 like salmon, zinc, seeds, nuts, vitamin b complex and iron.

Love your hair and it will love you back.
