We all know the feeling—no matter how much you condition, hair mask and avoid heat-styling, your hair still has split ends that you can’t seem to shake.
When your tresses are thirsty, the ends can split and damage your hair, and no remedy besides cutting them off will help. However, there are a few ways to prevent split ends so that your hair can grow long and stay strong!
When your hair is wet, it becomes extremely delicate and more likely to get damaged. The habit of washing your hair everyday means you’re increasing the likelihood of damage by pulling and prodding it when it’s in its most fragile state.
Try to avoid washing your hair more than once or a twice a week and focus mostly on the scalp while you’re shampooing.
Avoid extremely hot showers
When you’re in the shower, it’s easy to crank up the hot water—especially if it’s cold outside.
However, you’re not doing your hair or your skin any favors!
Since hot water swells the cuticle, making it more prone to split ends, try to keep the water lukewarm when you bathe.
Use a Microfiber Towel
After you get out of the shower, avoid rubbing your hair roughly with a towel.
Instead, invest in a gentle microfiber towel that will absorb the water without pulling tresses. If you need to comb through your hair after, avoid brushing and choose a wide tooth comb instead.
