Split ends can literally give you bad hair day again and again day after day.
It is the wearing off of the protective outer layer of hair cuticle. This problem of fraying of the hair shaft can become worse if not provided with proper nourishment and moisture.
Split ends are inevitable with growing length of the hair. The heating tools, brushing, hair colouring, and lot of other things contribute to the dryness of the tresses and splitting of hair shaft.
If split ends are not treated timely, then hair stands become brittle or the split continues up the length of the hair.
The best suggested solution to get rid of hair split ends is to trim them. This might seem as the only cure when you get split ends. But there is more you can do instead of trimming, whip few of the items from the kitchen and prepare your favourite DIY split-end treatments.
Egg protein mask
Eggs loaded with proteins and essential fatty acids are best suited for treating split ends. Whisk an egg yolk and 1-2 spoon of almond/olive oil. If needed also add few drops of Dabur Honey.
Apply along the length of the hair and scalp. Wash with your favourite moisturizing shampoo.
Deep conditioning with moisturizing oils
Take equal amounts of coconut oil, olive oil, almond oil and castor oil in a mixing bowl. Puncture a capsule of Vitamin E and squeeze out the oil into the bowl. Warm the oil and work it on hair and scalp. Massage gentle and comb hair with wide teethed comb.
Leave for 2 hours and shampoo as usual. Deep conditioning with moisturizing hair oils and masks will make hair healthy, soft and shiny.
Creamy avocado hair mask
Avocado is the best thing you can ever smear on your hair. It is loaded with proteins, essential fatty acids, folic acid, vitamins, magnesium and nutrients that nourishes the hair.
