Schedule regular hair trims every 6-8 weeks to get rid of split ends and prevent them from traveling up the hair shaft.
Be gentle when combing or brushing your hair, especially when it's wet. Use a wide-toothed comb to minimize breakage.
Limit the use of heat styling tools like flat irons and curling irons. If you must use them, apply a heat protectant spray to minimize damage.
Keep your hair well-hydrated by using a good quality conditioner. Focus on the ends of your hair to prevent dryness and split ends.
Wear protective hairstyles, such as braids or buns, to reduce exposure to environmental factors that can contribute to split ends.
Switch to a silk or satin pillowcase to minimize friction and reduce the chances of split ends caused by rough cotton pillowcases.
Ensure your diet includes a balance of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals that promote hair health, such as biotin, vitamin E, and omega-3 fatty acids.
Wash your hair only when necessary, as frequent washing can strip natural oils that protect your hair. Use a sulfate-free shampoo to maintain moisture.
