You secretly wish that your hair had a natural way of protecting itself, isn’t it? Turns out- it does! Want to know how? Read on.
We’ve created a handy guide to answer all your questions on split ends.
ABOUT YOUR HAIR’S NATURAL DEFENSE SYSTEM
First things first. Let’s try to understand how your hair protects itself. Your hair’s protective cover is called ‘Hair cuticle’. It guards your hair’s inner core from the outside. Damaging the cuticle layer causes your hair to become dry and frizzy quickly. Why? Because your strands find it very difficult to remain intact once the inner core is exposed. Even before you know it, your hair strands break off leaving you with ugly split ends. Who knew right?
Choosing the right split ends remedy can help a lot. But first, let’s take a step back to understand what causes split ends.
WHAT CAUSES SPLIT ENDS?
The key reasons for split ends are:
- Brushing and combing hard- This causes your hair to break, especially when wet
- Heat styling and blow-drying- These treatments damage your hair cuticle structure
- Not using conditioner- This makes your hair prone to styling stress
- Chemicals from dying hair- They strip your hair off lipids that are required to hold your hair strands together
So, make an extra effort to protect your hair cuticles from damage to prevent split ends forever. Remember that prevention is always better than cure!
Moving on. It’s time to talk about the best product for split ends.
