The ends of your hair split when they become dry and brittle. Split ends make hair look frayed. A common problem, the occurrence of split ends can be blamed on hair care routines, styling techniques, lack of nourishment, extreme temperatures and chemical hair products.
Once hair splits at the ends, an individual needs to go in for a cut to get them removed. Though there are a number of techniques in the market that suggest that they can get rid of split ends, such techniques only help conceal the split ends rather than getting rid of them completely.
The only way to get rid of split ends is to ensure that they do not happen. Here are a few tips shared by hair expert Jawed Habib, that show how one can avoid split ends in the first place.
Hair expert Jawed Habib believes that detangling hair the right way goes a long way in preventing split ends. Before shampooing or pre-conditioning one’s hair, they should detangle it using a paddle brush. Tangled hair leads to breakage and wear and tear during shampooing encourages split ends.
Further, one should always detangle wet hair using a wide-toothed comb. Starting from the bottom, a person should slowly work her way up without pulling the hair. This also stops wear and tear, promoting healthy growth and no split ends.
Tip: Detangle wet hair while still in the shower. Give it a last rinse and it will remain tangle-free longer.
