Split Ends: Causes, Cure and Prevention
Split ends will happen to almost anyone who goes too long between trims, but are more likely to develop in dry or brittle hair, and typical causes of damage include vigorous brushing, brushing hair when it is still wet, coloring and perming which make hair weak, and heat appliances. The intense heat causes a strand of hair to crack at the tip and split vertically up the shaft, thereby getting the name “split ends”.
Unfortunately, once your ends have started to split, the split can extend up the shaft unless you take action. The best treatment is to cut off the split end of the damaged fiber.
To help prevent split ends, treat your hair as you would fine fabric.
