2 Min read

You could see split ends as a not-so-subtle reminder from your hair that it’s time to visit the hairdresser. If you’re looking for how to get rid of dry hair and split ends, the only real solution is to get the damaged ends trimmed off by a professional. But with the right strategies and tools, you can protect your hair from split ends without compromising on style. Here we’ll share some tips and home remedies for split ends, ways to protect your hair from damage and what to do with split ends once they start appearing. 

Man könnte splissige Haare als sanften Appell verstehen, dass der nächste Friseurbesuch ansteht. Aber mal ehrlich: wer mit Apps & Co so gut organisiert ist, kann auf die Erinnerung von Mutter Natur verzichten. Also was tun bei Spliss und vor allem, was hilft wirklich gegen Spliss? Wir geben hier nützliche Tipps gegen Spliss im Haar, wenn er einmal da ist, und sagen dir, wie du mit guter Pflege und entsprechenden Produkten, Spliss vermeiden kannst.


What causes split ends?

The ends of your hair start to split when they lose too much moisture and become brittle. Hair that’s become very dry will break at contact with anything: your clothes, the strap of your bag, or your hairbrush. All sorts of things can dry out your hair, from sunlight to over-exposure to heat through styling. Unfortunately, real split end repair isn’t possible after the fact; the best split end remedy is to protect the natural moisture balance of your hair before split ends occur.

What to do with split ends once you’ve got them

We’ll talk about prevention later, but how to get rid of the dry hair and split ends you’ve already got? Sadly, you can’t glue split ends back together: to get your hair looking strong and healthy again, you’ll need to get them trimmed off by a professional. The trick to split ends repair that doesn’t take off a lot of length is to ask your hairdresser for a ‘split cut’: they’ll know how to remove split ends with scissors by twirling each strand of hair and snipping off the ends that stick out, without chopping off any noticeable inches from your hair.

Home remedies for split ends 

The best split ends remedy is to preserve the natural moisture content of your hair. Pick your shampoo carefully and avoid harsh ingredients, especially if your hair is naturally dry. It’s also a good idea to use a conditioner regularly and to give your hair a moisturising treatment once a week or so.
 

Treatments with natural oils make some of the best home remedies for split ends. Ingredients in your kitchen like olive oil, or specialised cosmetic oils like argan or jojoba oil, give thirsty hair a boost of moisture. Massage them gently into the ends of your hair and leave them in for as long as possible before rinsing them out. Two other home remedies for split ends and dryness are eggs and honey. You can even combine these for maximum effect. Try a homemade hair mask with one egg, one teaspoon of honey and two tablespoons of olive oil and leave in your hair for half an hour, before shampooing and rinsing.

How to protect your hair during styling  

Most hair styling tools use heat in some way, so if your ends have seen better days but you still get your favourite hair looks, you might now be wondering what to do with split ends between salon visits. The key to avoiding damage is to minimise the drying effects of your styling tools, so it’s important to choose innovative technology that is designed to protect your hair. The Philips KeraShine VividEnds straightener features SplitStop Technology: a combination of the UniTemp sensor that prevents exposure to unnecessarily high heat, and smooth ceramic styling plates that minimise friction with the hair. Together, these provide optimum split ends protection for your hair.
