Having some split ends are totally normal, having loads of them is a major red flag.
They make your hair look neglected and indicate that your hair is damaged, dry, and unhealthy overall.
What causes split ends?
Everyday bad hair habits like brushing out tangles, putting your hair up in a towel to dry after washing and sleeping with your hair tied back, who knew all of this caused split ends?
Frequent use of hot styling tools like hair dryers, straighteners, curling irons, and hot rollers have a large impact. I always recommend my clients use a good heat protector that will help protect the hair.
Chemical treatments like straightening treatments and perms cause split ends as well. These treatments change the structure of the hair.
Using the wrong hair products: Choose your hair products wisely and use only the ones without sulphates, silicones and parabens. The best products on the market now is the brand Leonor Greyl which I can definitely recommend.
Climate and weather: Environmental aggressors such as sun exposure or a lack of humidity can all lead to dryness and split ends. Use a good hair spf when you are in the sun. We often forget that the hair like the skin also needs protection
Bad nutrition: Vitamin deficiencies, and hormones all play a role in the health of our hair. A heathy body means healthy scalp and healthy hair.
The question on everyone’s lips are how to get rid of split ends? The only remedy for split ends are the scissor, cut them off. Getting regular trims every 6-8 weeks will definitely help avoid those split ends.
Use hair treatments at least once a week as well as hair masks. The best hair oil treatment that you can use to prevent the split ends is the L'Huile de Leonor Greyl, this also has a spf build in.
