Saying goodbye to split ends: Tips and new insights

Split ends can be one of the biggest frustrations for hair lovers striving for healthy, shiny hair. It is a common problem caused by various factors such as heat styling, chemical treatments, excessive brushing, and exposure to environmental pollutants. In this blog, we'll delve deeper into split ends, why they occur, and what you can do to prevent and treat them.

What Are Split Ends?

Split ends, also known as trichoptilosis, are the result of damaged hair where the outer layer of the hair shaft begins to split or break. This can lead to a dry, frizzy appearance of the hair and may eventually result in hair breakage and loss of length. Split ends can occur on any hair type but are often more prevalent in people with long hair or those who regularly use heat styling.

Why Do Split Ends Occur?

There are several factors that contribute to the formation of split ends. Heat styling, such as blow-drying, straightening, and curling, can disrupt the hair's natural moisture balance and damage the hair shaft. Chemical treatments, such as coloring, bleaching, and keratin treatments, can also contribute to split ends by weakening the hair structure. Additionally, excessive brushing, rough towel drying, and exposure to sunlight and environmental pollutants can also contribute to the formation of split ends.

How to Prevent Split Ends?

While it's not always possible to completely prevent split ends, there are several measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of their occurrence:

Limit heat styling: Try to minimize the use of blow dryers, straighteners, and curling irons, and always use a heat protectant product before applying heat to your hair.


Avoid aggressive treatments: Limit the use of chemical treatments such as coloring and bleaching, and make sure to condition your hair regularly to reduce damage. After every wash, even a conditioner!


Use a gentle brush: Opt for a soft brush with natural bristles and avoid brushing wet hair, as it is most vulnerable to damage.


Regular trims: Regularly getting your hair trimmed to remove split ends is essential for maintaining healthy hair. Even if you're trying to grow out your hair, it's important to get a small trim every few months to maintain hair health.


Treatment of Split Ends

If you already have split ends, there are several things you can do to treat them and prevent further damage:

Trimming: The best thing you can do to treat split ends (and you may not want to hear this) is to cut them off. Visit a professional hairstylist regularly to get your hair trimmed and remove split ends. A good hairstylist will cut just above the split, leaving behind healthy, strong hair. A small trim leaving the split present (and maybe not visible to the naked eye) is not the intention. The split will eventually be visible again.


Hydration: Use hydrating hair products such as conditioners and hair masks to restore the moisture balance of your hair and prevent split ends.


Protection: Protect your hair from further damage by using heat protectant sprays and serums when using heat styling tools, and avoid excessive brushing and rough towel drying.


Avoid tight looks: Avoid tight hairstyles that cause tension on the hair shaft, as this can lead to split ends and hair breakage. Especially if you do this regularly.
