Avoiding Split Ends

August 14, 2008 by  

Split ends are generally caused by over drying of the hair and this is easily done with cheap drugstore hair dryers. These dryers are blowing very hot dry air onto the hair and this causes the hair to dry and lose its own natural oils, which is needed keep hair healthy and free of split ends. Once the oil is stripped and removed the hair no longer has the protection this provides and it will begin to split into two and three strands on the end of each hair. Unfortunately the only way to cure this is to remove the damaged hair by trimming it off. Once that is done you should always use a professional hair dryer to ensure that the hair is not exposed to hot dry air again to dry it out.
