Split up with split ends

Nothing ruins a good hairstyle more than split ends. Split ends are a sign that you're not taking care of your hair. They are due to excessive heat and stress on your hair, and not taking care of them or taking steps to heal or prevent them can definitely make a difference in your hair's appearance and health.

Even though split ends are unhealthy, we know they are common. Here are some steps to heal and prevent your hair from split ends:

1. protect your hair from heat

Applying heat to your hair is all fun and games until your ends break up with each other. Failing to use heat protectant oils or sprays can cause major damage for when you apply heat to your hair. Make sure to always use heat protection products before curling or flat ironing your hair. It will make a drastic difference in your hairs health. Since heat protectants allow your hair to be heated faster, you don't need to have the temperature on your irons so high. So turn the heat down, you're hot enough on your own!

2. Befriend leave-in conditioner

Moisture is a top priority for preventing and healing split ends. It strengthens your hair and restores elasticity. Conditioner in the shower is great, but take the extra step for your ends and use leave-in conditioner. It will cause your hair to be moisturized for longer in the day, and will fasten the moisturizing process since there is more of it.

3. Get a trim

Trimming your hair is crucial to preventing split ends. Try aiming for every 8-12 weeks. Even if you're careful with heat and color, simply brushing your hair too hard can cause split ends, so make sure to give your hair room to grow into the healthy crown it's meant to be!
