Hair Quickie: How to Fix Split Ends WITHOUT Having to Cut Your Hair
Let’s just keep it ninety-nine plus one, split ends are the pits. They can occur so easily due to us trying to achieve super fun hairstyles. If you commonly use heated styling tools or chemicals (perms, bleach, color) you can cause the development of split ends. This is because such processes can damage your hair’s protective outer layer.
The obvious cure to split ends is just to simply cut them off. However, the thought of constantly cutting or trimming off strands does not sit well with many women. In many ways it almost seems counterproductive.
So then, if not by scissors how can you possibly mend split ends? One word: conditioner. However, don’t just use any old conditioner, look for one that contains protein. Such a conditioner will seep into the hair shaft and repair any splits. Nevertheless, keep in mind this fix is only temporary, the results only last till your next wash day. This is because protein only patches and fills in any gaps. Therefore, you will need to regularly condition with protein to gain the most benefits.
