How To Stop Split Ends

Beauty : Haircare

The first rule is never brush your hair when it is wet, as it is very fragile. If it is tangled, work in small sections from the ends upwards, using a wide toothed comb or even your fingers.

Brushes with nylon bristles are worst for your hair, so try and use brushes and combs with wide set teeth.

Ponytail elastic bands, even the fabric covered ones, and hair clips, can cause hair breakage. Scrunchies are a better option for tying hair back, and when you use clips, be careful not to catch hairs in the mechanism and then pull sharply, as this also does damage.

Another way of stopping hair damage is to get your hair trimmed regularly and thus remove split ends quickly or before they have a chance to form. You could also try a conditioner for split ends, which can often just be applied to the ends of your hair and seals them for a while - this is better than adding too much conditioner to your hair as it will end up lank and lifeless. There are many special conditioners for split ends on the market.
