Myths and Reality: What Causes Split Ends?
There are many factors that can damage hair and cause split ends. Here are the most common ones:
Poor ecology in megacities and cities, lack of vitamins, unhealthy diet, regular stresses, lack of proper care and treatment, overdriedness due to constant styling, blow-drying and straightening with consolation, wearing or not wearing hair hats or when we are without a hat, then the harmful effects of the environment).
How to remove split ends of hair
According to advertising, there are many ways to clean split ends with the help of various shampoos, conditioners, hair masks, procedures such as hair lamination, elumenirovanie, salon treatment of hair with various expensive compositions. But the most correct and effective way is still the removal of split ends with scissors. Since the hair is already damaged and "crushed", then "glue" it back forever - is unrealistic. It is possible that expensive procedures give the effect of a “restored” tip, but not for long. Therefore, the most reliable is to cut off the split end and allow the hair to grow further exactly as it should be.
The use of masks at home helps seal the ends of hair, though only for a while.
Method number 1. Take a ripe avocado, peel off the skins and mash well, turning its pulp into a mush, add a couple of spoons of warm olive oil. Before you apply a mask at home, you first need to wash your hair with shampoo, but do not rinse with air conditioning. Before rinsing, apply the mixture to the tips, put on a swimming cap and wrap a towel around your head. Procedure time 20 - 25 minutes.
Method number 2. In your diet, you must enter the consumption of protein foods. Fish, dairy products, eggs, nuts, kefir - will help to restore the hair structure, and prevent the appearance of split ends.
This is the first and most common reason why hair splits and breaks. First of all, risk factors are frequent dyeing, perm, hot-blow-drying, straightening with an iron, curling curling or curlers.
They make the hair structure more fragile, dry it, as a result of which small hair flakes begin to separate and a section occurs. Hair split through the entire length, if combed with a wet and very coarse comb.
Many make a mistake, wanting to grow a long head of hair - stop cutting hair. In fact, for the improvement of hair is very important to regularly cut off the tips. On average, this should be done every two months.
If you have dry hair, it is better to do it more often - once a month and a half, and if it is greasy, it can be done less often - once every three months.
It turns out that each person has his own “hair length” - this is a genetic predisposition of hair to a specific length. In other words, good, strong hair you can grow only to the level that is laid in your genetic code, and by its achievement they simply begin to exfoliate at the ends. Therefore, observe the behavior of your hair - perhaps it makes sense to stay at a comfortable length for them.
Lack of power
Most often, long hair lacks elemental - fluid. Here, the advice is simple - drink more fluid, ideally 5 glasses of water a day.
It also happens that the body lacks fatty acids, which can be replenished by regularly eating nuts and fatty fish. Avitaminosis is also able to worsen the condition of the hair. Vitamins necessary for hair - A, E, B and C. They can be compensated for the deficiency by taking multivitamin complexes or adjusting a healthy and varied diet.
What to do?
What to do when the hair is cut? First, eliminate all the physical irritating factors — the wrong comb, hair dryer, curling hair, etc. Secondly, start cutting your hair regularly, as described above.
Thirdly, do not forget about care for split ends in the winter - remove them under outer clothing, because low temperatures perfectly contribute to separation. Fourth, start eating right. And, of course, folk remedies will help to cure split ends of hair, some of which will be discussed below.
Treatment of split ends with kefir is very common. You can use one kefir or together with other ingredients - as you prefer. If you want to use the easiest way, apply this fermented milk product on dry and clean hair along the entire length.
At the tips make a special emphasis. Then lift the tips up, cover with a plastic hat and a towel. This mask is best done at night, since its duration is at least eight hours.
Wash off with plain water.
Good kefir and in combination with yeast. For such a mask you need a quarter cup of kefir and four grams of yeast. They need to mix and put in heat to mix fermented.
Then put everything on the hair and wait half an hour. Rinse off this mask with shampoo.
Sour cream with horseradish
Another dairy product - sour cream - also fights excellently with hair stratified at the ends. And in combination with horseradish, it can work wonders, because it improves blood circulation and hair growth. Take the root of horseradish and finely chop it.
Mix a spoonful of sour cream with a spoonful of vegetable oil, add horseradish to them and apply to hair. Cover with a hat and towel for half an hour and rinse with water.
They restore the hair structure very well, but they should be used only for those who have dry or normal hair type, and optimal regularity once a month. Oil is heated on a water bath (olive oil is best, but any other vegetable will do). The amount of oil depends on the length: it should be approximately equal to the amount of shampoo that you usually take for one wash.
There add a teaspoon of lemon juice or birch, if any. Then carefully lubricate the hair mixture, rub it into the scalp. The head should be covered with cellophane and a warm towel for 2 hours, after which the hair should be washed with shampoo.
- Revise your diet, eat more products that are good for your hair, pick up multivitamins and dietary supplements. Especially if you also have problems with skin and nails - this indicates a lack of vitamins and trace elements. Drink at least 2 liters of pure water per day. In the morning on an empty stomach it is very good to take a tablespoon of olive or flaxseed oil.
- While the hair continues to split, regularly shave your hairevery two months. If you really want to keep the length, but cut off the split hairs, try to do it yourself, twisting the strands of hair with flagella and clipping protruding split hairs. The procedure is dreary and long. Haircut with hot scissors will help grow long hair, although this issue is a lot of controversy, but most likely the effectiveness depends on the quality of the procedure, the level of professionalism of the master. Personally, I liked the effect, even though I scrubbed with hot scissors only once. It is believed that after two or three procedures, you will forget about the split tips, although this measure does not cure the problem at the root, but only gives a cosmetic effect.
- Masks against split ends will not restore hair, but will prevent the section.
5. Horseradish can also help split hairs, which promotes enhanced blood flow, and sour cream, which softens the effects of horseradish and nourishes hair follicles. To make a mask out of this, you need to mix grated horseradish with sour cream and vegetable oil. Apply the mask to hair for 30–40 minutes, wrapping them in a towel or polyethylene. Rinse with warm water using shampoo.

You may need a referral to a specialist in the field of gynecology and endocrinology - sometimes splitting hair characterizes the presence of a disease that requires immediate treatment.
Causes of split ends
Normally, hair that is longer than 30-35 cm is cut. Lubricants secreted by the scalp simply do not fall on the ends of the hair and are not able to provide adequate protection against the influence of external negative factors. Thus, the top layer of hair is not protected by anything from the following types of exposure:
- Thermal (as a result of using a hair dryer, curling iron or other devices).
- Chemical (reagents in pools, painting, use of varnishes).
- Mechanical (combing, waving).
As a result of these effects, the upper, protective layer is destroyed, as a result of which the hair loses its elasticity and becomes brittle, exfoliating at the ends.

No need to apply shampoo directly on the head immediately. The required amount foams in the palms, and then applied only to the root part (!). In applying the shampoo on the tips is not necessary.
After shampoo, you just need to use balsam-rinse. It should be distributed over the entire length of wet and already clean hair (basically, the roots do not need to use a balm) and not wash it off for 3-7 minutes.
It is important to carefully monitor wet hair. You can not rub them with a towel, just wrap and just soak up the water. Scratching should be avoided immediately after washing. This is due to the fact that wet hair is the most fragile, therefore, it is most susceptible to mechanical stress.
Choosing care products
It is necessary to give preference to exactly those products that suit your hair type. Owners of split ends are suitable for money, which indicates that they:

Thermal protection - the main condition when laying a hair dryer or tongs. At the time it is better to abandon completely irons and ploek.

As part of almost any hair mask, there is always a proportion of oil, be it jojoba oil or coconut, apricot, flax or even vegetable or olive oil. After washing your hair, you need to dry your hair a little, rub any oil into the tips (coconut or almond is best), hold it under a towel for at least an hour (ideally leave for the night), then wash your hair again. To dry
It is best to rinse the hair after each washing of the head with fresh, room temperature, herbal infusion. Leaves of chamomile, linden, nettle, peppermint and even ordinary green tea are perfect. After them, the strands will be not only smooth and silky, but also pleasantly smelling.
Still, there is nothing better than the work of specialists using professional tools. In beauty salons they offer all kinds of hair restoration services with products that are not so easy to find in a regular supermarket. In addition, many procedures can be performed only in the cabin due to the complexity of the work.
Perhaps the most favorite procedure among girls, because of its instant results. Hair immediately becomes smooth, silky, combed much easier and, most importantly, stop to split. And all this happens thanks to the active substances that the master “seals” with a special iron over the entire length of the hair.
Or keratin straightening. Suitable for girls with any type of hair. The main components of the procedure is the keratin composition, which is applied to the hair, and after 30 minutes, is smoothed with a special iron. Under the influence of heat, keratin is completely “driven in” into the hair structure, making it incredibly smooth.
First, the master thoroughly washes his head with a special shampoo, which consists of proteins and lipids. Then bamboo serum is applied to the peeled strands and dried with a hairdryer. Then, again, they are “sealed” with an iron, but then the hair is washed again, the protein concentrate is applied and washed off again after 25 minutes. At the end of the spray aerosol is applied to seal the scales.
There is a hope to do everything at home, for example: buy a polishing machine. The mechanism of action is this: insert a strand into it, and she herself removes unnecessary “processes”. These machines are in beauty salons, but why pay more, if you can always try it yourself.
Which of these methods to choose, you decide. But remember, if split ends have already appeared, then it is almost impossible to get rid of them without cutting the strands. Therefore, the best protection is prevention!
In addition, damage may result from a number of other reasons:
- Lack of moisture in the body.
- Wrong selection of cosmetics, paints, shampoos.
- Abuse of a hair dryer, curling iron, thermal rollers, the choice of excessive heat.
- A long break between visits to the hairdresser (with a break of more than six months, the ends no longer receive good nutrition and gradually die off).
- Combing with a hard comb or brush with sharp teeth.
- Long stay on the beach, alternating effects of scorching sun and fresh or salt water.
- Unbalanced nutrition and, as a result, a lack of a number of vitamins, minerals and trace elements in the body.
In some cases, you do not even need to resort to full treatment - it will be enough to determine and eliminate the cause of the problem (diversify the diet, refuse some cosmetics or change the comb) and after a short period of time the hair will return to normal.
