I have split ends
The only way to avoid split ends altogether is to use preventatve conditioning and to avoid all chemical treatments.

Split ends, if they do develop, can never be repaired 'like new'. The so-called 'split end repair fluids' are applied directly to the hair tips. They contain high-density silicone fluids which draw the splayed ends of the fibres together and hide their ragged appearance. The fluid is removed at the next shampoo, however.

Conditioning allows re-establishment of the hydrogen bonds and improves the moisture content of the hair by improving the weather-proofing of the cuticle. This determines the amount of static charge on the hair and the resistance of hair to mechanical stresses like brushing and combing.

We are told that if we nurture our hair by brushing vigorously 100 times a day, with an all-natural bristle brush, or if we pamper our hair with hot oil treatments or smother our hair with cholesterols, then we are sure to be blessed with beautiful, shiny and healthy hair. This might be the case, if you have young hair that is not chemically treated. But this is certainly not the case, once you have treated your hair with harsh chemicals such as bleaches and alkaline permanents; or if you have naturally curly hair.

For hair to be in tiptop condition it has to have a moisture (water) content of at least 8%, and the right balance of protein and natural oil. Most of us produce enough natural oil (sebum), to keep our hair healthy, but lack the moisture.

What to do...
You need to give your hair lots of TLC, with shampoos that are designed to restore your hair's moisture level to its optimum 8%.
Along with intense conditioners that will help to repair damaged cuticles, improve porosity, elasticity and general health and appearance of your hair.

Chemical treatments (i.e., perms, hair dyes or bleaches) will deplete the hair of moisture. Bringing the hair moisture level down to as low as 2%. When this occurs you will start to notice split ends.

The same will happen with constant use of blow-dryers or hot styling tools. If these split ends are not repaired forthwith and the moisture level not restored to 8%, your split ends will turn to breakage. This obviously needs to be avoided at all costs.

Those of you who live in hot, sunny or arid climates; need to make sure that your hair care products contain sunscreens to protect your hair from the damaging affects of the UV rays. If not, the same thing will happen to the hair.
