Mending Split Ends for healthier hair

When I first people the first thing they do is comment on long and healthy my hair is. It might be long but I still have split ends, which knocks healthy out of the park. We all eventually get split ends, because there are so many reasons for it. Over shampooing, heating tools, harsh environments, and coloring. The list is actually quite long, but split ends are manageable.

Split ends aren’t just going to disappear, they need care to heal themselves. You can cut them off, or mend your hair follicles back together. You need to try the Suave Split End Rescue Shampoo and conditioner. I’ve always been a big Suave fan because they make professional quality products available for $3 a bottle.

It isn’t always true that you get what you pay for, because Suave has always been an essential in my shower. Why spend more if you don’t have to, right? I used the Damage control line for a long time and loved it although it has been discontinued now. Id actually like to see that back on the market.They also make an excellent dry shampoo that I’m a fan of.

I have a huge problem with coloring my hair black these days. I’ve probably had my hair every color in the spectrum at some point or other. I stopped lightening my hair when my hair ended up damaged very badly, making it course and unhealthy. I knew the health of my hair can’t stand the lightening products, so I keep my hair dark now.

I also try and be considerate to my hair now, avoiding heat tools whenever necessary. If I know I’m not going anywhere special, I just let my hair air dry. When I do use heating tools, I always make sure to add in a heat resistant spray to protect and coat my hair. I also started to use a deep conditioner once every 2 weeks (avoiding the roots) leaving it in for 15 minutes. Then I rinse it out with cold water which helps to seal the hair follicles, preventing further damage.

I also avoid brushing my hair until it’s almost damp, and adding a dab of detangler. Brushing hair when wet will cause damage, because the water weakens it.  It’s especially true if you have long hair like I do, which tends to want to tangle in itself as it’s brushed.

Suave Split End Rescue shampoo and conditioner are currently on Rollback at Walmart for $2.50.

Have you fought split ends? What did you do to help them heal?
