I get the worst split ends. Are there any ways or tips to

Wednesday, 7 November 2012

The best way to prevent split ends is to have your hair trimmed regularly. Some women believe that it’s better to leave their hair and no cut it in order for it to grow, but truth is trimming it helps much more than any treatment.

You can maintain its health by treating it once a week and using a good shampoo and conditioner. Always use a heat protecting product when heat styling and never go to bed with wet hair.

    Regular trimming is the solution. Also helps for hair to stay in style. With long hair it helps the bottom part to not look thin while the top is looking thick, because of hair falling out.

    With long hair I stay away from heating products as far as possible and have it trimmed regularly – it makes a huge difference.

    Coconut oil is very good for a night treatment or leave it in your hair for 1hr and wash ,or you can mix with your hair mask works for me

    Good advice. You need to trim your hair regularly, and always protect it when styling. Treat once a week and dry it as soon as possible. Wet hair is easily damaged. Never forget that. So take care when brushing wet hair too, and when removing tangles after a swim. Protect those tresses!

    My hair is extremely long and I will always believe in trimming it often and using quality products to keep it healthy. Also, cut down on any heat treatments, it deserves a break.

    Moroccan oil is one of the best products to keep your hair smooth, shiny and incredibly soft. My hair has been dyed a couple of times and it is the only product that keeps my hair in good condition. It also helps with my split ends. It retails at about R375 but its well worth it because one bottle will last a good 5 months.

    Thanks for the tips… I use to believe trimming was the best way to allow ones hair to grow, but then got told its nonsense. Now that I have left it, it hasn’t grown that much , well kind of has but doesn’t look that great. Shall go back to the normal trim every now and then
