Split ends and frizzy hair

Split ends and frizzy hair

Trying to save up for longer hair, but constantly forced to top up because of split ends? Follow our advice to treat and avoid split ends.

Trichoptilosis is the scientific name for split ends and is a combination of the Greek word for hair and the Latin word for feather set. The fibers of the hair are worn out when the protective outer layer is worn away. It often happens when you have used curling irons or straighteners for a long time, or when you have treated your hair with chemicals found in hair dye, permanent fluid and hair bleach. Some claim that the only cure for split ends is a haircut. That's actually not the whole truth. There are natural solutions that help brittle hair and ensure that the hair stays healthy and does not break.  Try our tips at home, take care of your hair and feel the difference.

Be kind to your hair

  • If you wash the hair too often it can damage the hair's important natural oils. Be careful with hair with split ends.
  • Switch from "tough" to mild shampoos and rinse your hair with colder water.
  • Shampoo your hair gently and pat it dry with a towel instead of wringing it out.
  • Comb the hair out with a wide-toothed comb. If it's tangled, start untangling it from the ends.
  • Use hair bands covered in fabric, never rubber bands, if you want to put your hair up in a tassel, braid or knot.
  • < li id="">Turn down the heat

Avoid high temperatures when drying, straightening or curling your hair and feel free to switch to lower temperatures. Hair dryers, curling irons and flat irons give your hair style, but also split ends. Protect your hair with a sun hat during the summer to avoid direct exposure to the sun.

Nourish the hair follicles

If your hair has split ends ends, it can be helpful to use a wrap once a week or month to help hair growth and restore shine and bounce to your silky locks. Work in the hair care product from the scalp to about half the length of the hair. Allow the product to work a little longer if you have dyed hair that is a little more porous. Feel free to use leave-in products.

Think about what you eat

Folic acid and vitamin B7 help build up protein in the hair, make the hair healthy and contribute to hair growth. Examples of foods containing folic acid are leafy vegetables, soybeans and wheat. Vitamin B7 affects the metabolism and is found, among other things, in lentils, peas, brown rice, sunflower seeds, walnuts and soybeans.
