All of us desire luscious ‘Rapunzel-like’ locks. However, in today’s age and time, the quality of our hair degrades everyday due to a variety of factors like pollution, exposure to the harsh sun rays, poor lifestyle etc. Another major culprit lessening the glory of our mane is split-ends. To combat this enemy and to restore your hair back to their former glory, here are some tips.
1. Coconut Oil Treatment:
Hot coconut oil conditioning is one of the best methods to repair damaged and dry hair. This is because of its constituent potent compounds that penetrate right through your hair and heal them from within. Heat some coconut oil to change it into a liquid state as coconut oil can sometimes solidify at lower temperatures. Also, warm oil is absorbed better by your scalp. After that, massage it gently into your scalp and let it stay for an hour or two and then wash it off with a mild shampoo. Alternatively, you can also keep it on overnight and wash your hair the following day.
2.Egg Avocado Mask:
Being rich in protein, Vitamins A, D and E egg and avocado works wonders on your split ends and provides them adequate nourishment and moisturization so as to effectively repair them from within. Mash a ripe avocado and mix it with one egg’s contents to form a thick hair mask. Apply it throughout the length of your hair and wash off after 45 minutes.
Beer is an excellent hair conditioner and also makes your hair less frizzy and manageable. Simply rinse your hair with beer after you shampoo and finally rinse thoroughly with water.
4. Ditch Your Cotton Pillow Case:
Sleeping on a cotton pillow case increases friction between your hair strands. This makes them susceptible to breakage, damage and most often, dreaded split ends. Ditch your cotton pillow case in favour of a silk or satin pillow case to revive your hair and keep them frizz-free and manageable.
5.Have A Hair Spa Day:
You can purchase a hair spa kit or relevant products and give yourself a relaxing hair spa at home by yourself or with the help of a friend or family member. Regular hair spas keep your hair healthy, restores its luster and treats dryness and damage which cause split ends in the very first place. Some of the amazing hair spa kits and products available in India are Schwarzkopf Spa Essence Deep Repair Serum Kit, products from L’Oreal Paris Total Repair 5 range and Matrix oil therapy oil spa crème.
6.Take Precautionary Steps:
Take precautionary steps which cut down damage to your hair and prevent split ends from forming in the very first place. Start by ditching your traditional combs and opting for a hair brush or Tangle Teezers. Use a micro-fibre towel instead of your regular ones and always keep your hair tied up in a ponytail or in a braid to reduce friction and keeping them secure.
7. Apply A Repairing Hair Mask Once Every Week:
If you do not have the time for a full-blown spa session at home, you can also opt for a deep conditioning hair mask treatment once every week. It will save you time and will be equally as effective if you choose a great hair mask according to your needs and requirements. Some of the best hair masks which repair your damaged hair and treat split ends are Macadamia Professional Deep Repair Masque, Kerastese Masque Oleo-Relax and Matrix Biolage Hydra-crème Intense Moisture Masque.
8. Trim Your Split Ends Yourself:
With a little technique, research and expertise you can trim your own split ends at home, without going to a salon for a full fledged hair cut. To begin with, gather your supplies and watch a tutorial or two to gain confidence. To put it simply, the basic technique is to take a small section of your hair at a time, twist it, slide your fingers through the section slowly and trim out any split ends that pop over.
That’s all for today girls, hope this helps.
