Hair enthusiasts, today we're talking about the ultimate hair buzzkill – split ends. You know those pesky little splits at the end of your strands that seem to pop up out of nowhere and refuse to go away. Let's dive into the nitty-gritty of why split ends happen and what you can do to prevent them from ruining your hair game.

From over-styling to harsh weather conditions, we'll cover all the culprits that can lead to those dreaded splits, and how to keep your hair healthy!

1. Using Rubber Bands

Ever noticed how many hairs get yanked out with your elastic after an up-do hairstyle? The friction that rubber bands and tight elastics cause on the hair can result in significant damage to your strands. Constant use of rubber bands will result in split ends and unhealthy hair. If you’re a ponytail type of gal, try using an accessory that’s more gentle on your hair such as our Hotline Spring Hair Ties. Get the same hold without the damaged hair that you normally get from a tight elastic.

2. Not Using a Heat Protectant 

Let’s be honest... we're all obsessed with curling wands and flat irons, but not the damage that comes along with them! Over styling your hair without using a heat protect might be the number one reason why your hair has split ends. However, this issue is completely avoidable by stocking up on our Cool AF Heat ProtectantTrust us bae, this extra step in your hair routine is a must!!

3. Brushing Too Often

Brushing your hair is essential (and feels AMAZING), but overdoing it can lead to severe breakage. By properly brushing your hair and using the right tools, you can avoid unwanted split ends! Our hair is the most fragile when it is wet, so it is important to always use a wet brush or comb after the shower. If your hair is extra knotty, use our Flaminglow Leave-In Cream Conditioner to get rid of any tangles and add moisture to your locks.

4. Color Treatments

“New hair, who dis?” It’s your split ends calling, they want their moisture back! Getting a fresh, new hair color at the salon is a game changer, but it may come with a cost! Depending on the treatment, the chemicals used to dye your hair may be doing more harm than good to your strands. After a visit to the salon, we recommend replenishing your hair with our Don’t Hate, Hydrate Hair Mask! Your hair will thank you later ;)

5. Overwashing 

While it is important to regularly wash your hair for good hygiene, excessively doing so can strip its natural oils. This may lead to dry, brittle hair that is more vulnerable to split ends. As a general rule, avoid washing your hair everyday. On the days that you do, help your hair retain its moisture by using our California Dreaming Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner Set!
