    What Causes Split Ends?

    Split ends occur when the protective outer layer of the hair cuticle wears away due to external stressors like heat styling, chemical treatments, and environmental factors. When the inner core of the hair is exposed, it becomes weak and damaged, leading to split ends.

    Preventing Split Ends: Your Hair Care Routine Matters

    The Right Shampoo and Conditioner

    Prevention is key, lovely! Start with a gentle, nourishing shampoo and conditioner. Avoid harsh ingredients that can strip your hair of its natural oils. Instead, look for products that are designed to strengthen and moisturize your hair.

    Minimize Heat Styling

    We know it's hard to resist, but cutting down on heat styling can significantly reduce the risk of split ends. Embrace your natural hair texture, or if you must style, always use a heat protectant.
