Split Ends Treatment - Remove Split Ends
Split ends in the hair are the most common hair problem that every woman faces. Split ends are more likely to develop in dry or brittle hair, and typical causes of damage include excessive dying. Once the hair cuticle is removed, it is impossible to replace. Split ends can make your beautiful locks look dreadful. There are different causes for split ends and there isn't much you can do to repair your damaged hair once you have them. Typically the hair splits into two or three strands, and can be as long or two to three centimeters in length. Split ends can not be repaired. The only efficient way to get rid of split ends is to have them chopped off. Avoid recurrence by having a trim about every six weeks. There are a few products that will temporarily cure your split ends by sealing and coating the ends of the hair. As soon as the hair is being washed or brushed though the split ends re-appear.
Split ends will happen to almost anyone who goes too long between trims, but are more likely to develop in dry or brittle hair. Split ends can occur if one spends too much time in the sun, or in heated and dry environments indoors. Outside, one can protect hair from split ends and excess drying by wearing a wide-brimmed hat, except when one needs the hair to be perfect for a special day or event. Split ends do have a tendency to keep splitting if you give them the chance. If you have time during the day, or in the evening, check your hair occasionally for split ends and simply cut about one to one and a half inches above the split end, and apply a conditioning treatment to the recently split end to ensure not more splitting. Intensive conditioning treatments might help to reconstruct the hair shaft, but again this will only be a temporarily solution.
To remove Split ends
- Take small sections of hair and carefully twist them in a gentle downward motion.
- Any split ends will automatically stick out.
- Carefully snip into the twist with sharp scissors.
- Be careful to cut roughly the same amount from each twist.
Preventing Split ends
- It's best to use a wide tooth comb if your hair is vulnerable to splitting.
- Use shampoos and conditioners containing hair thickeners.
- Squeeze the water from the hair with an absorbent towel. Rubbing the hair can cause wear to the cuticle.
- If you're using hair color take caution with chemicals. They can make your hair weak and cause split ends.
- Get a trim every six weeks.
