When it comes hair, split ends are the enemy of hair growth. Many women will believe with all of their heart that their hair is simply not growing. Hair grows continuously but breakage and damage can make it appear as if all growth has stopped right in its tracks.
The number one cause of split ends is due to heat from straightening and curling irons. Protect hair from heat damage by apply a leave-in conditioner or hair protectant product to your tresses prior to applying any heat. These products will coat the hair to shield it from breaks; moreover, keep in mind that the ends of strands are the weakest and need to be handled with extra care.
