The ends of your hair are the oldest and most delicate part of your hair. They’ve been through just about everything, wear and tear from combing, detangling, manipulating, heat styling, etc. It’s important to protect your ends to keep them from getting split or damaged.
Tips on how to protect the ends of your hair:
1. Satin Cap: Wearing a satin scarf or pillow case will protect your hair from dryness caused by your hair rubbing against dry material such as cotton and linen fibers.
2. Moisture: Applying moisture to the ends of your hair can keep them from breaking. Ends of the hair are the most porous part of the hair strand. Adding a moisturizer to your daily routine will prevent ends from becoming dry and brittle.
3. Routine Trim: Staying on top of your hair trims prevents the ends splitting, which helps the hair retain more moisture.
4. Comb with Caution: Always comb with a wide-toothed comb to detangle and begin combing from the ends up. If you have tightly curled hair, you should comb with heavy conditioner when hair is wet. This allows comb to easily slide through the hair.
