How To Prevent & Remove Split Ends?

There is no specific way to remove the split ends, apart from cutting the ends of your hair, but you can take care of your hair and try to prevent them. To begin with, you must identify whether you have split ends in your hair or not. “Trichoptilosis” is the scientific name for split ends and is a result of the longitudinal splitting of your hair fibers. There are three kinds of split ends as follows: –

1)      Generic split ends

2)      Middle end splits, which occur in the middle of the hair strands and resemble a hole once the strand is bunched up.

3)      Multiple splits at the end of the hair strand.

While cutting your own hair, even if it is a single strand, you must always use hair shears. Using regular paper scissors can fray your hair ends and lead to more splits over a period of time. As observed, the single stand knots tend to occur more in dry or curly hair. In order to prevent split ends, you must get a hair cut regularly. For an instance, most hair stylists recommend a hair cut every 6-8 weeks. All kinds of hair can be damaged after a while and so it is advisable to trim your hair by at least an inch to solve any hair problems.

When you have split ends at the end of your hair strands, you only need to trim your hair to fix your problem. However, if you were to have the other kinds of split ends, then you might need to treat your hair accordingly. Lastly, you must never rely on products that claim to remove split ends. Such treatments will seal the split ends in order to make them look healthier, however in reality they fail to reverse the damage.
