Fix Split-ends Without Cutting

Written by

Split ends happen to the best of us. It happens when that  protective outer cuticle layer of your hair gets worn away from heat styling and salon chemical services. Once the internal structure of your hair is exposed, it becomes weakened, dehydrated and damaged, causing split ends. So, this is how it happens now we just need to know how to fix it and avoid those split ends that we all dread so much. 

The plague of most women that are trying to grow their hair out is the split-end. Is it possible to fix split-ends without cutting? For many years it was not possible but now there just may be a cure.  No matter what age you are, have chemically treated hair or a completely virgin hair, you are always at risk of experiencing those nasty frazzles. Split-ends are the number one complaint our clients have when they come in for a cut.

In the past, the only sure way to rid yourself of split ends was to have them cut off.  But now you can get the Brazilian Blow out Split End Treatment.  The only in-salon service that can instantly mend split ends and improve the shape of your hair cut. It uses a proprietary Bonding System, that fills in and binds broken hair fibers, instantly mending split ends while the nutrients in the product, prevent future breakage by surrounding each strand with a protective coating. It protects your hair from daily styling and environmental stressors. We use Brazilian Blow out Split End Treatment at Salon F and our clients LOVE it. The end result is instantly repaired, stronger, healthier ends protected against future breakage. But if you want to avoid split ends all together, there are several things you can do between salon appointments to improve the look of damage and prevent more splits from occurring.

  1. Use a wide-tooth comb: After you apply conditioner in the shower, slowly run a wide-tooth comb through hair until all the tangles are out. This prevents the snaps and breakage you can incur when you try to brush out hair that is roughed up from a towel-dry.
  2. Get high quality heat tools: That cheaper blow-dryer may be a tempting purchase, but inexpensive tools do not have the best heat controls. They sometimes overheat and can burn your ends into splits. You get what you pay for so do your hair a favor and get high quality irons and dryers.
  3. Be gentle with your hair: You should treat your hair like a very expensive silk fabric. Use only covered elastics with no metal or rubber.  If you want sleek looking hair, use products like gel and finishing spray to create a smooth finish. Never pull your hair too tightly to achieve it alone.
  4. Take supplements: Folic acid helps the production of red blood cells, which powers the growth of hair. Biotin strengthens both hair and nails through its metabolism of fats, carbs and proteins. These are just two examples.
  5. Use leave-in conditioner: Conditioners that you rinse out in the shower will do little to nothing for split ends, but a leave-in conditioner will add extra protection that stays on strands as you heat-style and go about your day. There are many products out there that will help to prevent split-ends. But you apply after every wash on towel-dried hair for best results.
  6. Blow-dry the right way: Always use a nozzle on your dryer to control and direct the flow of air, and dry hair in a downward direction before sectioning off and drying completely with a round brush. This way, you spend far less time with intense heat straight on the hair. If you can naturally dry all the way, that’s always your best option.
  7. Be careful with chemical services: There is unfortunately no way around treatments like hair color, highlights, straightening and perms all cause trauma that can result in some split ends. You should try to limit your chemical services to just one major hair concern, and refrain from washing strands for at least 48 hours afterward. This is when they are most porous.
  8. Get regular cuts: A haircut is the only way to absolutely get rid of split ends and regular trims are your best protection against them. The longer you wait to trim, the greater chance you have of split ends getting worse by traveling up the hair shaft. It may sound counter-intuitive, that you cut your hair regularly to make it grow but it is true. You should get a cut or trim at least every six to eight weeks.

If you follow these tips you will not have to mend and seal your broken hair. So, to avoid months of wearing a hat, or worry that scissors are your only solution to split ends, stay on track. But if you are already suffering from those dreaded split ends, you can let us repair them. Brazilian Blowout’s Split End Repair Treatment is your best bet after the fact. It is a very quick service, and anybody can get it. It is a 10-minute process that costs $25 at Salon F and can last up to four weeks. If you have a split-end problem, let us know and we can help.
