How To Prevent Split Ends

Tired of split ends? Trust us, so are we! That’s why we’ve created the below guide to explain what causes hair to break and how to prevent split ends with the best split end treatment for you. Ready? Healthy hair awaits… 

What Causes Split Ends? 

Split ends go hand in hand with dry, brittle hair. Using heat or chemical products can cause individual strands to break and separate, just as washing, styling and tying hair up can lead to damage.  

 

What Causes Split Ends 

 

We’ve all struggled with split ends at some point, so you’re not alone – and now you know what causes the hair to break, you can focus on fixing the damage. 

How To Prevent Split Ends 

When it comes to getting rid of split ends, the only option is to cut them off. However, there are split end treatments and lifestyle changes that can prevent future breakage. 

 

Get Regular Trims 

Getting your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks is one of the best ways to prevent split ends. 

 

If the split ends aren’t cut, they will travel up the hair shaft, resulting in frizz. Regular trims instantly remove damage and welcome faster growth for stronger hair. 

 

Use Heat Protection 

Where possible, try and use heated tools as little as possible. Of course, we know it’s not always that easy – so when you need a quick blow dry or an emergency straighten, always remember to use heat protection spray. Your new best friend, it can help prevent damage and split ends.  

 

Use our Tri-Blo Heat Protecting Hair Spray to improve cuticle health and leave hair feeling strong and looking smooth. Powered by our Invisi-Shield Technology, this spray protects and defends against heat damage up to 230°C. Simply spritz onto towel-dried hair before blow-drying to keep damage at bay. Alternatively, our BLOW DRY AQUA PRIMER offers heat protection up to 230°C, while hydrating hyaluronic acid keeps hair moisturised, soft and smooth. 

Wash With Care 

Did you know that excess oil build-up can cook the hair, causing serious damage? Keeping hair clean is one of the best ways to treat split ends.  

 

Wash your hair 2-3 times a week with our Damage Rewind Reconstructing Shampoo and Conditioner to treat breakage and damage. With repairing Opti-PLEX ™ technology, your once tired hair will look transformed, strong and sleek.  

Moisturise 

Keeping hair hydrated can help treat split ends, as strong, healthy tresses are much less prone to breakage.  

 

Use a nourishing conditioner (like our Luminizer Weightless Conditioner) every time you wash to keep hair soft, full of life and frizz-free for 48 hours. Its unique Opti-PLEX™ technology will help to strengthen hair too. 

 

Another great split end treatment? Hair oils and serums! Our Hed Shine spray is infused with jojoba and argan oils to help reduce breakage and split ends, keeping hair smooth and healthy. 

Apply Protein Treatments 

Protein-based treatments are another great way to strengthen the hair and prevent split ends.  

 

Our One Shot Spray boasts a repairing complex of creatine, guarana, wheat, and silk proteins to condition and smooth the surface of the cuticle, helping to reverse the signs of damage. 

Adding the right products into your haircare routine can help prevent split ends, leaving hair strong and healthy. Explore all split end treatments.
