Can You REALLY Mend Split Ends?

Bad hair dayI can't tell you how much I get this question.

“Can I REALLY Mend My Split Ends?”

First let me tell you how they happen. The ends of the hair split when the outer layer of the cuticle, which is the protective layer, get's worn away from excessive heat, and chemical services.

Once that protective layer wears off the hair becomes vulnerable, dehydrated and damaged which causes the ends to split.

Let's be honest, with all you've just read do you think it's possible to mend that type of damage?

No..the only way to “mend” split ends is to cut them off.

Now, with that said you want to be sure to prevent split ends from ever happening to begin with.

Conditioner is your new BFF. Be sure to condition the hair regularly to ensure the hair stays hydrated.

Wear protective styles like a sew-in, kinky twists, or micro braids throughout the year to give your hair a break from the normal wear and tear.

Get your ends trimmed professionally every six to eight weeks.

So instead of trying to mend those ends prevent the splitting and have healthy hair from the beginning.

Be blessed,
