There’s no hair enemy as unyielding as split ends. They keep coming back no matter how well you condition your locks or how expensive your hair products are. To get rid of split ends permanently, women have no choice but to get them snipped off.
Since cutting your hair is not always the preferred solution, you can always resort to natural ways of treating split ends. This blog post highlights a few simple yet effective ways to get rid of split ends without cutting your hair.
Style with care
Heat is often the main cause of split ends. Do you use heating tools regularly and burn your hair mercilessly? If so, then don’t be surprise why you’re suffering from those horrid, ghastly, hair-destroying split ends.
If you really need to use the blow dryer every single day, be sure to invest in a good quality dryer. That bargain-bin blow dryer may be a tempting purchase, but it may damage your hair over time.
To ensure that your body produces the healthiest hair possible, be sure to eat the recommended amounts of protein, vitamins and minerals.
B Vitamins, biotin and folic acid in particular, have been shown to supplement hair thickness, length and health. Soybeans, walnuts, sunflower seeds, peas, lentils and brow rice are good sources of biotin. Foods rich in folic acid include wheat, soybeans, oranges and green leafy vegetables.
Deep condition your hair
Split ends occur when hair follicles become dry and brittle. If your hair has dried out due to do excessive use of heat styling tools or frequent washing, consider deep conditioning treatments once a week to moisturize your hair and treat split ends.
Avocado and olive oil
Mash an avocado and mix it with 2 tablespoons of olive oil until you get a creamy consistency. For better results, you can slightly warm up the oil. Massage it onto damp hair, cover it with a cap and let it sit for 30 minutes. Wash and condition your hair as usual. This will not only help get rid of split ends, it will also leave your hair soft and shiny.
