Hair Care - Hair Split Ends Treatment

Split ends are the easiest type of hair damage to control. Split ends are the result of normal hair wear and tear, but can also by toweling your hair too vigorously when it is wet, over blow drying, and excessive coloring, bleaching, or perms. Another factor that can lead to split-ends is sun exposure. Fine hair is especially prone to splitting.

Causes

There are different causes for split ends. Split ends occur when the protective cuticle is destroyed at the end of the hair. Split ends will happen to almost anyone. Split Ends are more likely to develop in brittle or dry hair. Typical causes of split ends damage include vigorous brushing, brushing hair when it is still wet, coloring and perming which make hair weak, and heat appliances. There are other causes for split ends beside some of the main ones mentioned above. Other causes could be excessive tangling, improper application or removal of hair extensions, headgear that snaps or rips delicate strands or even scratchy bedclothes, fingers or hands.

Blow dryers, curling irons and flat ironers should all be avoided until you can get a haircut. The main reason is because they are actually known to cause or worsen split ends, especially when they are not used properly. Make sure that you use curling irons and flat irons when the hair is dry and, ideally, in combination with a hair serum. Also, be sure to not overuse these tools. Only using them several times a week is the best.

Take care not to split them in the first place, because the only cure is a trim, according to trichologists (hair doctors) everywhere.

Trichoptilosis 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.

Rinse well and then do a cool to cold rinse to seal the hair's cuticles and ends, adding instant sleekness and glossiness.

Make sure that the split end areas are dried as straight as possible since splits look worse when they are allowed to wave, curl, frizz or spike out.

To keep your hair healthy and to prevent split ends you should deep condition your hair once a month. A good method to doing this is to put the conditioner in your hair and place a plastic cap over your head with all your hair inside. Then place a hot damp towel on top of the plastic cap and leave on there for 10 minutes. Afterward, rinse hair with extremely cold water.

Use regular conditioner in your hair after shampooing, and a deep conditioner once a month.
Use shampoo with ingredients that include sunscreen and moisturizing cream in your hair if it is extremely dry.
Give regular massages to your scalp and hair with lukewarm oil at least twice a month. You can choose coconut oil, olive oil or almond oil for your hair. You can even mix this oil and apply the solution on your hair.
Rub a lime on your scalp if there is dandruff on your scalp, leave it for 10 minutes and shampoo the hair. You should use medicated dandruff shampoo and oil to apply on your hair when they are suffering from dandruff.
