How to Remove Split Ends- Split ends can be a real pain especially if you want to grow long hair. Even if you treat your hair well, there are still many little which can cause your ends to split. This article will turn your attention and teach you about new ways how to remove and prevent split ends.

How to Remove Split Ends

Protect your hair from the sun

1) Protect your hair from the sun. Don’t be afraid – you can still spend your days outside in the sun. Just be careful because too much of those ultraviolet rays can mean brittle and dry hair. As we all know, there is a big possibility that it will result into split ends. So, if you want to sunbath then at least protect your hair by wearing a cap or a hat.

Tip: Be aware that some reflective hair sprays can make the situation even worse because they facilitate the heating process. And, make your hair become hotter than a cat on a hot tin roof.

Don’t brush wet hair

2) Don’t brush wet hair. Make sure that your hair is always dry when you brush it. You should do it because your hair is very vulnerable right after you get out of the shower. Feel free to do some gentle combing when your hair is wet but no brushing.

Tip: Remember that brushing (and back combing) can still cause split ends even if it’s done on dry hair. And, a lot of depends on be the type of brush you’re using – make sure that it’s suited for your hair type.

Trim your hair regularly

3) Trim your hair regularly. Most hair care experts suggest to trim around half an inch of your hair approximately once every two months. Unless you get a new haircut every few weeks, trimming is absolutely essential if you want to get rid of split ends. If you’re trimming to remove split ends then make sure to always cut a few millimeters above the split.

Tip: You can go to a hair salon if you’re afraid to do it yourself but it’s actually not that complicated if you have a pair of quality hair shears.

Constantly nourish your hair

4) Constantly nourish your hair. Split ends usually occur when the person’s hair is dry and brittle therefore it’s very important to keep it moisturized. Deep conditioning and nourishing hair masks are definitely some of the things which can help with that. Warm oil is another effective remedy that you can use to keep your hair hydrated and healthy.

Tip: Don’t forget that it’s not only about things that you put on your hair. And also, about the things you eat. Unhealthy diet can do bad things for your hair and split ends are one of them.

Fix split ends with a conditioner

5) Fix split ends with a conditioner. There are conditioners that reportedly can pull at least some of the split ends back together. Most of these split end menders contain both negatively and positively charged chemicals that can stick the split ends back together by reacting with each other.

Tip: You should apply a conditioner to your hair not only when split ends have already occurred but also on regular basis in order to keep your hair strong and prevent split ends.

Be careful with heat

6) Be careful with heat. You probably already know that you shouldn’t use blow-dryers, flat irons, curling irons and other similar devices every day because they are literally frying your hair and making it weak and dry. It means that if you’re afraid of split ends then try to use lower temperatures – don’t ever set your flat iron above the 200 degree mark (which is 392 degrees Fahrenheit) and always keep the blow-dryer a few inches away from your hair.

Tip: There are some products which can protect your hair from the heat to some extent. Those serums, sprays, lotions and other products create a protective layer around the hair cuticle so that the heat doesn’t dry out your hair too much.

Beware of alcohol

7) Beware of alcohol. While drinking alcohol is also something that you shouldn’t do too often, this time we’re talking about using conditioners and shampoos which contain alcohol. The problem is that it can easily make your hair brittle and more likely to split. Most of hair serums and gels contain at least some alcohol.

Tip: Regardless of what kind of shampoo you use, you still shouldn’t wash your hair with it more than once every two days. Too frequent shampooing is one the most “effective” ways how to strip your hair of its natural oils.

Don’t rub your hair

8) Don’t rub your hair. If you usually dry your hair by tirelessly rubbing it with a towel then it may very well be the reason why you tend to suffer from split ends. It’s because the rubbing creates a friction which causes the hair ends to split. You must be gentle and use a towel only for squeezing out the water that’s dripping down your hair and after that just let it air-dry.

Tip: The type of towel you use is important as well, so make sure that you have one which absorbs water very well. A microfiber towel would probably be a really good choice because in general they are extremely absorbent and soft.

Summary

There are so many things that can lead to split ends and there are not so many things you can do when you already have them. So, it’s quite obvious that you should be really careful when brushing your hair, drying your hair, going out in the sun, using any styling tools and choosing a shampoo or a conditioner. Basically, whenever you’re doing anything hair-related.

By following the tips that were given in this article you will not only reduce the chance of getting split ends but also improve your general hair health and that’s definitely something worth the hassle.

Does your hair become unmanageable after every wash? Or is it so curly that combing spells trouble for you? If yes, then some hair care treatments like hair smoothing or hair straightening might be the only option for you. Though both the processes of hair smoothing and hair straightening result in sleek and manageable hair, they have a slight difference.

Before we figure out the difference between hair straightening and smoothing, let us give you a brief on them first!

What is Hair Smoothing?

Hair smoothing primarily is a hair care treatment that leaves hair smoother and silkier than before without changing the natural hair type. It is mostly just an alignment technique. If you have dull hair with split ends and want to make them manageable, this is the perfect option. Both natural and cosmetic ways offer the same results of making your hair straight.

What is Hair Straightening?

Hair straightening is primarily a styling method that also untangles unruly locks. There are a many natural products and ways to straighten your hair, but cosmetic hair straightening treatments seem to be more in demand. This treatment not only makes your hair more manageable, but it also gives you the much desired straight hair look.
When hair care is the topic, one of the most discussed issues is hair smoothing vs. hair straightening. Which is the better option?
Why Hair Smoothing over Hair Straightening?

Hair experts put hair smoothing ahead of hair straightening in some cases. This is simply a call taken on what is the end result you seek. If you’re looking to just improve the texture and look of your hair without changing your natural hair type, then smoothing is the choice that they will suggest.

Hair straightening requires the use chemicals as it is not easy to change the ways of your natural hair. If you have curls, then the bonds need to be broken and reset to straight which means the use of both chemicals and heat. And that definitely spells a certain amount of hair damage. And if you can treat your hair to a better condition without damaging it further, then why not?
Why Hair Straightening Over Hair Smoothing?

This is a process that will be recommended to you if your main aim is to have straight hair along with the prospect having manageable hair. When you keep smoothing your hair then over a period of time, your curls will become waves but the chances of it going straight are very poor. This is a result that only straightening can give you. This is the difference between straightening and smoothing. And this is where hair straightening beats hair smoothing.

The Verdict:

It is your choice that counts!

If you’re looking at keeping your natural look and improving your hair texture to make it more manageable, then hair smoothing should be your choice.

If you’re looking to go for a hair makeover and try out the straight hair, then hair straightening is best choice. There is nothing wrong with that. Straight hair is easier to maintain and in this way you get to eat the cake and the cherry too! But keep in mind that chemically treated hair needs more care and love, so make sure you give the TLC it needs!
