3 Ways to Keep Split Ends Away

What are 3 ways to keep split ends away?

What are split ends?

Split ends are damaged hair strands. This is caused by the hair drying out, being old and even using the wrong products. Split ends also know as trichoptilosis can travel up along the strand and hit the scalp completely destroying your hair. There are a few ways to prevent this like:

1. Regular trimmings

Regular trimmings at a salon will stop split ends from traveling up to you scalp and will eliminate the need for extra products to fix split ends. Getting a cut every 4-6 weeks can eliminate split ends.

2. Dry your Hair Gently

Drying your hair with an absorbent towel and dab the wet DO NOT vigorously dry your hair this will cause tangles in weird directions destroying your hair even faster than usual. This is because when your hair is wet it is fragile and can be damaged very easily.

3. Use a Wide Tooth Comb

When coming out of the shower use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush. This will decrease the likelihood of your hair getting stretched and broken when brushing. Using a comb will detangle it a lot safer and prevent stretching and breaking.
