Split ends: Treatments

Split ends are a common sight where the tips of your hair strands split into two or three parts. Sometimes, the divided strands can continue to split downwards to the root of the hair for two to three cm or more.

The split ends are usually visible on the long hair . The keratin that covers the hair becomes less present at the end. They can then show brittle and dull. This leads to a loss of volume and hair shafts are more vulnerable. The hair grow old more quickly. One factor in this destruction lies in patterns of care, cosmetic treatments such as abuse, frequent colors and perms and straightening. But it can also come to the health of the person. Iron deficiency, for example, or dysfunction of the thyroid gland, can participate. A low-fat diet can also ill-suited to be the cause.


For this keratin in the hair to do its job properly, it must help keep the proteins it contains. It is easy to test the elasticity of your hair. This will tell you whether or not to provide treatment to prevent the forks. Take your hair and pull both ends by holding them firmly. It is healthy if it grows about 20 to 30% of its length, then returns to its original state when released. If, however, it breaks, you must maintain your hair and especially keratin. Do not waste time, see a specialist or a professional hairdresser, he can advise you on proper care .

Another most common causes of split ends is over brushing. You may be inclined to repeatedly run a thick brush through your locks, but this can lead to breakage and splitting. Instead, try using a wide-toothed comb to remove tangles and smooth hair. This is best done while hair is still damp after a shower. If you still feel the need to smooth locks with a brush, wait until hair is completely dry and be gentle.
