    hi priya

    i would suggest you to get your hair trimmed frequently, that is the only way to grow your hair long, also oil them every week.

    take care

    Dear Priya,

    What Abha said is right. Trim your hair regularly every month atleast to keep the split ends at bay.

    When you oil your hair, pay special attention to the ends of your hair. It would be better to apply oil to the hair, massage it well and then comb it. Even then, if the ends look dry apply a little oil to the ends with your fingers and rub it in.

    What I do is to tie up my hair after I oil, into a tight bun for half an hour. Then take shampoo bath. When you shampoo, see that you take a little shampoo and rub it in your hands and then bring it down to the ends of your hair, so that the conditioner spreads well to the ends of your hair

    Try it out and tell me how it went??

    re: Split-end Problems & Solutions

    Few considerations need to be made whn u think u have split ends
    1.which sort of comb ur using? bcz combs produce static electricity to ur hair
    2. Ur scalp condition ? ur hair will split faster because there is not enough lubrication on the hair follicle.
    3.usage of heated appliances and hot air dryers for hair drying /crimping /straightening dry and split ur hair
    4. Over brushing will cause split ends and exaggerated backcombing will also make the hair split since it is
    disturbing the cuticle.
    Brushing hair when it is still wet is one of the most important causes for split ends because wet hair stretches by as much as 25%.

    5 elastic bands and all sorts of other hair accessories can damage your hair. Avoid using uncovered elastic
    bands since these often pull out hair when being removed. Other accessories will damage or weaken the ends of the hair

    6.Coloring and perms make hair weak and vulnerable for split ends. This type of hair needs extra care and should be treated with the appropiate products. Use a lot of conditioner and comb your hair through before rinsing it out.
    7.Only repair of ur hair can be done u need to cut off ur splits every 6 wks and need to give warm oil massage wht olive oil u can add few essential aroma oils like jojoba oil , wheat germ oil, rosemary oil
    8 whn u use henna on ur hair if ur hair is dry oil it massage and then apply henna

    9 . Never leave ur hair while travelling open try to cover it
    10 dont use harsh shampoos and dont forget to condition ur hair
    11. check your diet if ur having a low fat diet try to improve it

    i think i better stop orlse u wil start shouting at me now :)
    i can go on listing reasons for split ends
    tc and have a healthy hair

    re: Split-end Problems & Solutions

    Dear Narma,

    You have to trim the split ends, no other go. After that you have to take care of your hair. Split ends are due to dry and brittle hair conditions. You can visit my blog LathasCorner - Hair Care

    There I have mentioned how to look after your hair to avoid split ends. All the best

    Split Ends

    Hair Split Ends [SIZE=-1]By: Savio Joseph[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]This is a common condition which proves to be the devil of every girl's life! Split ends are most often seen in long hair but also found in shorter hair that is out of condition and is an affliction of anyone trying to grow their hair. The problem can be solved with good hair maintenance so check out this article![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Split ends, (or trichoptlosis), are the nightmare for every self-respecting woman's life! They happen when the protective cuticle has been stripped away from the ends of hair fibers. Split ends are more likely to develop in dry or brittle hair, and typical causes of damage include excessive dying or vigorous brushing.
    [/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Once the hair cuticle is removed, it is impossible to replace. Typically the hair splits into two or three strands, and can be as long as two to three centimeters in length. The best treatment is to cut off the split end of the damaged fiber.[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]THE MAIN CAUSES WHICH BRING THIS GHOST TO YOUR HEAD:[/SIZE] [SIZE=-1]1[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. As your hair grows, the natural oils from the scalp can fail to reach the ends, making the ends of the hair more vulnerable than the roots.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]2[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. The ends of your hair have had a long exposure to the sun, gone through many shampoos and been overheated by hairdryers and straighteners, which results in dry and brittle ends which are prone to splitting.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]3[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Not trimming your hair regularly is possibly the main cause of split ends. Prevention is better than a cure![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]4[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Damage due to colouring when done to excess also causes dry brittle ends.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]5[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Poor quality brushes and combs can also cause this problem.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]It doesn't necessarily means that have to go to the salon every week to keep your split ends in check. In earlier times, woman used to burn off their split ends themselves! And when I heard this I thought of bringing this revolution again into this Era, brought something new to this fashion & beauty industry so started cutting hair with Candle, its cool, fun & creative! Imagine using fire instead of Scissors, but you don't have to scared I will not advising you to do this at home and get entry into Records book.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Hey! Not to worry, there are easier ways to get rid of your dead ends before they split further... DIY (do-it-yourself) hair trims. Don't be afraid, most of women do it![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]These DIY hair trimming tips are for woman who are happy with their hair; for those who don't need a re-style, but simply want to freshen things up with a 'homegrown' sort of look. Still! If you are in any doubt, leave it for the professionals![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]To remove split ends:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Take small sections of hair and carefully twist them in a gentle downward motion. Any split ends will automatically stick out.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Carefully snip into the twist with sharp scissors. Don't cut right through; just cut into the thickness to remove the damaged cuticles and give a natural layered effect.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Be careful to cut roughly the same amount from each twist.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]Remember, sometimes the simplest, and least expensive, ideas are the best. So get trimming![/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]TIPS TO GET RID OF THIS NIGHTMARE:[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]1[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Use specialist products that are designed to seal the splits temporarily in order to catch any splits that are shorter than the length you want to cut your hair to and to allow your hair to grow a little longer before you trim.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]2[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Go for deep conditioning treatment every week, if possible and especially if your hair is prone to splitting, chemically treated or treated by ceramic straighteners. Conditioning is mandatory every time you have a chemical.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]3[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Have a Trim regularly[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]4[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Avoid excess heat and too much brushing and combing and please don't brush, scratch or shampoo hair and scalp before any chemical service. Never hesitate to Invest in quality combs and real bristle brushes.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]5[/SIZE][SIZE=-1]. Do shampoo your hair after a workout or strenuous exercise. The salt from perspiration will erode your hair. If you work out more than once a week, consult your stylist for your particular needs.[/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1]What ever you do, if you want to keep your hair long, don't ignore split ends because, as they split they also break away, meaning that your hair is in effect getting shorter every time you brush it and also means that your hair population is going down[/SIZE]
