Treating Your Hair at Home

Split ends commonly occur, but they really do not need to destroy your fine hair forever. There is no magic way to permanently bind your split ends back together (trust us, we’ve been through that), but there are a wealth of ways for minimizing further damage to your mane in the future. Wondering when to cut (and when to preserve) split ends your self? This article will give you a few split ends hair care tips to help you decide when is the best time to cut or no longer.

If you want to use a natural split ends hair treatment at home and you find your mane is becoming particularly dry, then it is a good idea to apply some aloe vera to it. While you won’t actually be “spraying” the aloe vera directly onto your split ends, you should still take some of it on with yourself as you comb and wash your hair. To make the application even better, put some aloe vera gel in a squeeze bottle and lightly apply it to all of your split ends before you go to bed. Aloe vera works well to moisturize dry and brittle hair, especially if you use it twice a day.

Another DIY split ends, hair treatment at home tip is to massage coconut milk into your scalp. This will moisturize your scalp, which will in turn help keep your mane from drying out. One thing to keep in mind though; never massage coconut oil directly into your scalp. You will end up burning the scalp, which can lead to scarring. For this reason, only rub a small amount of coconut oil onto your split ends and gently massage into your scalp. If you have really oily hair, you may not be able to achieve results this way.

Before you begin your own Coconut split ends hair routine, it’s important that you have a clean shaven scalp. To achieve this, you can use some natural oils such as olive oil or coconut oil. Once you have your clean and hair-free scalp, you are ready for you mane-cleansing ritual. Simply take some coconut milk (about two tablespoons should be plenty) and warm it up in your hands. Once you feel that the coconut milk has become lukewarm, grab your combs and gently massage the warm oil into your scalp and split ends.

Before you brush your split ends, you will want to apply a heat protectant to them. A heat protectant can be found in any department store; in particular, you will want to pay close attention to stores that carry salons supplies. If you don’t already have a heat protectant on hand, you can purchase this product at any beauty supply store or drugstore. Heat protectant will allow your strands to remain in great condition between hair straightening sessions; a heat protectant also allows your split ends to dry quickly between styling.

Once you have your split ends properly treated, you can then begin to use a moisturiser. To use a good moisturiser, you must ensure that the product is suitable for your type of hair (i.e., if you have dry hair, you do not want to use a thick oil-based moisturiser). A moisturiser specifically designed for dry hair is best (so that the product will not cause your mane to become greasy). Once you have applied the appropriate moisturiser, you can then begin to style your mane and to leave your split ends behind in a less impressive fashion!

Another popular hair treatment involves the use of thermal devices to help stop split ends from growing. These devices resemble heated combs and can be used to comb through your hair to remove split ends before they have time to grow. Depending on the device, you can get different results; some combs are much stronger than others, which may cause your mane to become raw, which will in turn cause your split ends to become more noticeable. Other thermal devices are a lot less aggressive and will not cause your locks to become raw. It is important to note that, if you decide to use one of these devices, you should use a sufficient quantity on the strands that you wish to treat (you should use the same quantity that you would if you were using a comb, except that you should not use the heated ones repeatedly – this can be dangerous).

If you follow these simple guidelines, you can ensure that you are better able to control the amount of split ends that develop and, therefore, reduce the amount of damage that they can cause. However, if you are experiencing particularly bad split ends, you may want to consult your GP or an aesthetician to discuss whether there may be something more radical you can do in order to prevent further damage. Hair treatments are not reserved for those with unmanageable hair; even those who are perfectly fine can benefit from a hair care routine. Even people whose hair is fine by nature, can sometimes benefit from the use of a good quality hair growth product on a regular basis. With a little effort, you can make sure that your tresses remain in tip-top shape.
