Split Ends Got You Down?

Nobody likes split ends. That's a fact. We've all dealt with split ends before. They are one of the worst enemies when it comes to growing and maintaining healthy hair. Here are some tips and advice on how to both prevent these little hair devils and my favorite product to strengthen your ends.

  • Use as little heat as possible when doing your hair. When heat is necessary for styling, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS use a heat protector spray. Spray the hair liberally before applying the heat and while straightening, curling, or blow drying.
  • Put down the brush. While you obviously need to brush out your hair while styling do not over brush it. Constantly brushing can cause split ends.
  • Trim, trim, trim. Every six weeks or so you should give yourself a little trim job. This will help prevent split ends and help you hair grow.
  • Do your research. There are a lot of products out there that promise to reverse the effects of split ends but they do not all work. 

Since we are based on budgets on this blog I thought I''d share with you my FAVORITE split end treatment cream. It is Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Split End Leave-In Protector.

I know, it's a mouth full but this stuff is really great. I bought it for four or five dollars at my local CVS drugstore. I had split ends like a mad woman and had tried a couple other serums and creams without satisfaction. This little beauty was discovered when I strayed away from the big names and settled for something a little more common. I'm glad I did. This stuff worked WONDERS for me. After a couple weeks of using this cream I saw healthier, shiner, and stronger hair. Just like all Herbal Essences products this cream smells AMAZING. I recommend this product one hundred time over!

So, if you are having some split end mishaps remember the advice above and please, try out this cream. I promise you'll love it.
