You need to CUT IT- The truth about split ends
“She was so scissor happy”
That’s probably because there was a significant amount of DAMAGE. Ladies, here me when I speak for all the hairstylists out there, we do not want to cut your hair to hold you back. We want to see your natural hair healthy, growing, and flowing. Let’s discuss SPLIT ENDS and why they are detrimental to hair growth.
Why does hair split?
Imagine a strand of hair like a piece of straw. A healthy piece of grass or straw is flexible and shiny. What happens when it is dry? It gets stiff and the ends start to fray. Rigorous combing, brushing, and harsh chemicals damage your hair.
You are what you eat!
What you eat produces the cells that make your skin, hair, and nails. Make sure that you are replenishing your body with healthy fats, proteins, vitamins, and fluids to keep your hair healthy and shiny. DRINK MORE WATER!
EXORCISE dead weight!
Ever wonder why your hair can’t grow past a certain length? Split ends start at the ends of the strands, and split all the way up the shaft to the root. As your hair grows from your scalp, the ends are splitting upwards causing it to meet at that point. Keep your ends fresh and cut. Holding on to length keeps it from growing. Hair is dead once it exits the scalp. There is no chemical or conditioner that can “glue” your ends back together. Like Elsa yelled from her Frozen palace, “LET IT GO!!!.”
The best conditioning treatment is a good old fashioned HAIRCUT.
