There are several things that cause splits, such as hot tools and harsh chemicals. But even habits you might not realize you have, like using the wrong hairbrush or excessive use of tight hair ties, will also cause ends to split.
Whatever your vice, it's safe to say that your mane, no matter how healthy it may be, takes an occasional trip to Splitsville. Here are four major ways to combat those dreaded split ends.
Get regular trims
Shocker, right? Since split ends are essentially inevitable if you're a fan of hot tools (raises hand), plan on seeing your stylist every 6 weeks. A sixteenth of an inch-- sometimes called dusting-- is the perfect way to take the edge off. (Literally.)
Use all-natural products only
One of the biggest culprits of split ends is the harsh chemicals found in many a 'poo bottle. If the pH in your product is off, your hair might not be able to handle it, making it extra prone to breakage and split ends. Using an all-natural ingredient list like the BLNDN Complex, which includes Baobab, Murumuru, Pomegranate Seed, and Camellia Leaf, will organically heal the damage that's been inflicted on your mane. (But don't just take our word for it-- it's been clinically proven to do so.)
Skip the hot tools
Even if it's just a few days a week, cutting the use of hut tools in half (okay, or even a third), will drastically help your damaged hair recover. If you absolutely must use your flat or curling irons, turn down the temp, and add a diffuser onto your hair dryer. Your locks will thank you later.
Deep condition before combing
Using a wide-tooth comb, use a deep conditioning mask like REPAIR YOU, the weightless mask that repairs serious damage in less than 5 minutes. Even better, it's clinically proven to work with just one use. (I guess good things really do come in small packages.) If you're on the go, use a leave-in conditioner like SAVE YOU, the Balancing Cream that instantly repairs damaged, dull, brittle hair with just a few drops.
Happy healing, babes.
