Women like their braids to be long and luscious. They try several products that help them keep their hair shiny and healthy. But in turn, they also tend to damage them, thanks to the chemicals infused into these products. Not only that, but styling or applying heat to the hair also damages it, causing breakage and even split ends.
Factors that lead to split ends: As mentioned above, there are multiple reasons for spilled ends to occur. Frequent hair washing is one of the main reasons for this. Therefore, one should not wash your hair more than twice a week because frequent washing not only causes split ends but also makes hair dry, dull, fizzy and lifeless. Using hot tools also leads to split ends. Due to excessive heat, the hair loses moisture, making it dull and lifeless. This ultimately leads to split ends in the hair. Apart from this, not cutting the hair at regular intervals also causes split eds. Therefore, pruning should be done from time to time.
DIP tips to keep split ends at bay: Although split ends occur frequently, there are also easy home remedies that will help you avoid this problem. Using aloe vera gel and honey as a hair mask are just two of many.
Aloe vera gel: The pulp of aloe vera gel is beneficial for long and healthy stresses. Apply the gel from the scalp to the tips of the hair and leave it on for about half an hour. Let the gel penetrate the hair and the roots. Later, wash the hair with a mild shampoo. By applying this hair brand frequently, you will see positive changes in the quality of your hair.
Honey: It is not only beneficial for the skin but also for the hair. Honey has moisturizing properties that make hair roots strong and hair shiny. It also helps to put an end to the problem of split ends as it retains moisture in the hair. To apply honey to the hair, mix it with a teaspoon of curd and half a teaspoon of olive oil. Apply this from the roots upwards for 30 minutes. Follow this by washing it with a mild shampoo. Keep applying it at least twice a week for best results.
Lubrication: To get rid of split ends, it is important to always follow some hair care tips. Be sure to apply oil to your hair before shampooing. This will make the hair less dry and less brittle. Also, use products made from natural ingredients rather than chemically infused ones. This will eventually reduce hair splitting.
