Split end is a common hair problem and when avoided, split ends can lead to a lot of hair fall and hair damage. However; it is primarily dryness and damage inflicted by environmental pollution and chemical and heat treatments that cause the hair strands to turn dry and develop split ends. Hence; if you are noticing split ends in your hair, don’t just settle for snipping them off. Though cutting off split ends is the best process of ridding our hair from them.
Here Are Some Simple Ways To Get Rid Of Split Ends And Even Avoid Them:
Probably the easiest and simplest way to fix split ends, a few sprays of beer can mend the split ends in your pretty fast and that too in a safe way. Protein and sugar present in beer bind themselves to hair strands, thereby covering and mending the exposed part of the hair cortex and automatically fixing the split ends. All you will have to do for reap the benefits of beer for merging your split ends is to fill up a spray bottle with undiluted beer and spray the same on the ends of your hair strands. Let it stand for one hour and then rinse it off with a mild shampoo.
Biotin is essential for hair growth and hair health. Biotin strengthens the hair strands and also maintains the natural moisture and health of hair. Hence; eating biotin rich food or taking biotin supplements are considered quintessential for hair growth and maintenance. Foods rich in biotin are green leafy vegetables, wheat and soybeans. While eating biotin-rich is essential, you must consult a healthcare practitioner before taking biotin supplements.
Wide Tooth Comb
Friction caused by using combs and brushes can lead to weakening of hair strands and development of split ends. Hence; it is always better to use a wide toothed comb for detangling your hair, especially if it’s too dry. A wide toothed comb detangles hair easily without snapping or pulling hair. Wide toothed combs are also ideal for detangling wet hair, as wet hair tends to be very weak and wide toothed combs being gentler, detangle wet hair easily and more gently.
One of the main reasons why our hair develops split ends is because it turns dry and brittle due to damage. Hence; it is essential that you condition and moisturise your hair on a regular basis to keep dryness and development of hair split ends at bay. Use a good quality intense conditioner to condition your hair at least twice a month.

A fabulous natural hair conditioning mask recipe for hair includes papaya, yoghurt, honey, almond oil, egg yoke and coconut oil. Blend the ingredients together and apply the mask on your hair. Let it stay for an hour and then rinse your hair with a mild shampoo.
