Hair with dry and split ends is a problem for many women, especially those who often use strong chemical curling and dyeing products, thereby drying out their hair. To rectify the situation, it takes time and fairly intensive and regular, and most importantly, proper care for them.
Hair that has split is impossible to restore, but when you cut the ends, your hairstyle will look much more attractive. You can also trim them at home - about a centimeter every one and a half to two months, it is recommended to do this with "hot scissors".
Reconsider the way you care for your hair. They will probably have to be changed. Use a mild shampoo specifically formulated for damaged hair.
When washing your hair, even with a gentle shampoo, you should not rub it into the skin, so as not to wash off the fat produced by the sebaceous glands. Lather the shampoo and rinse your hair with this foam, while using not hot, but cool water.
Use rinses and conditioners to make your hair softer and more manageable. Avoid brushing wet hair and avoid using metal combs or brushes.
Use masks to treat split ends. They can contain extracts of chamomile, cinnamon, bamboo, and, in addition, olive, almond or apricot oil. But before applying them, read the instructions for use so as not to overdo it.
After each hair wash, light hair masks with vitamin E can be applied for 5-10 minutes.
Lotions and sprays based on thermal water are helpful for treating weak, split ends - they do not need to be rinsed off. For the duration of the treatment, it is better to forget about the means of fixation - mousses, gels and varnishes.
Dry your hair naturally, but if you cannot do without a hair dryer, try to choose a gentle cool air drying mode.
Review your diet. Your body needs to get enough vitamins A and E, as well as fatty acids, so make sure that your menu often contains sea fish, cereals, nuts, vegetables, olives, dairy products, vegetable oil. Taking vitamin complexes will not hurt. Pay attention to your water balance as well. Skin and hair that suffer from dryness need a sufficient amount of fluid, so try to drink at least 6-8 glasses of water a day.
