Tips for preventing split ends and Growing your hair long and healthy

If you’re growing your hair long, the last thing you want is split ends, as they will eventually break off and can damage the rest of the hair shaft. Follow these tips to keep your hair in good condition and keep split ends to a minimum.

 

1) Tie your hair back if you’re boating, riding a motorbike, driving a convertible and so on. This will minimize tangles – the major cause of split ends.Use a loose scrunchie rather than a “rubber band”.

2) Take extra care when detangling your hair. Use a wide-toothed comb and gently detangle from the ends, up to the roots. Never yank a brush through the length of your hair, as this will damage it. Don’t rush either – take your time and be as gentle as you can.

3) Use a weekly deep conditioner. This will keep your hair in optimum condition and will reduce the number of split ends you get.

4) Squeeze the water out of your hair rather than ruffing it up with a towel. Micro fiber towels are best.

5) Get a hair cut every 8 weeks. Some women can go longer between trims – it all depends on hair type – but most will need to see the hairdresser several times a year. This allows your hair to grow, while keeping the ends neat.

6) Use salon-quality shampoo and conditioner. Generally, when it comes to hair products, you get what you pay for. Investing in quality products will keep you away from the hairdresser for longer. When you buy inexpensive store products you will use more, waste money down the drain.

7) When blowdrying your hair always use a heat protective styling product or leave in conditioner. Think about it like this… if you were to lay out in the sun without sunscreen you would be burning your skin right? Protect your hair with great natural products and see great results
