Causes and Fixes for Split Ends

Trichoptilosis is the scientific name for split ends. A split end is basically the splitting or fraying of the hair shaft. Most often split ends are caused due to excessive stress and/or heat placed on the hair. The hair shaft is made up of thousands of layers. When the outer layer, or cuticle, is damaged either by heat or chemicals, it weakens the hair and it becomes more prone to splitting. Other causes of split ends can be excessive combing and towel drying (by rubbing hair too harshly with a towel) which can also cause damage to the hair shaft.

The best way to “fix” a split end is to prevent it. This means getting your hair trimmed regularly, about every 6- 8 weeks. This will cut off the most vulnerable and exposed end pieces of the hair which can stop a split end from occurring in the first place. Folic Acid and Biotin supplements have also been found to assist in strengthening and aiding in hair health which can assist in the prevention of split ends.

Once an end has been split, there is no real way to “repair it”, but you can mask it. There are no products that are able to “heal” the split end, but some products can “seal” the split end together to make it appear healthier.

These two products that are found in our Natural Hair Care Product Making Certification Online Course are excellent in maintaining healthy hair:

Hydrating Hair Mist 
This particular formula is a multi-purpose. It can be used on wet hair as a detangler and to hydrate hair. It can also be spritzed on dry hair to add hydration to the hair. The hydrating hair mist adds a vibrant shine and scent to the hair.
Strengthening Hair Oil
Hair oil is one of the best products for a head full of vibrant hair. This product can be used in several ways and for many hair types. Learn how to use botanicals to stimulate the scalp and promote hair growth. Hair oils are under utilized in our country. Oil has been used to beautify hair since ancient times. This Strengthening Hair Oil promotes a revitalized scalp for prevention of hair loss, encouragement of hair growth and smooth and soft hair.
Learn how to make both products as well as Balancing Shampoo, Luminous Shine & Moisturizing Hair Mask, Moisturizing Conditioner, Brightening Hair Rinse and Hair Gel all in our  Natural Hair Care Product Making Certification Online Course!
