Our Favourite Treatments For Frazzled Split Ends

I personally don't recommend thinking about hair in too much detail, because as I was planning this article I got way too consumed in how weird hair actually is and now I've had to make myself a chamomile tea.

Anyway, back to regular programming. Let's talk split ends. Technically known as trichoptilosis or schizotrichia, split ends refer to the fraying or splitting of the hair fibre, most typically at the end of the hair strand.

What Causes Split Ends?

I'm confident everyone reading this has experienced a split end or two in their lifetime - I know I certainly have. But what actually causes them, and how can we prevent them?

There are a lot of reasons we can get split ends. They can be caused by overstyling, frequent use of heat tools, improper detangling, chemically treating the hair or not using conditioning products, just to name a few. Most of us opt for a trim to split up from split ends, but what happens when they're further up the hair shaft and a chop isn't an option?

If A Haircut Is Out Of The Equation...

I get it, you're trying to grow your hair and a "trim" at the hairdresser might undo all your hard work (we know a "trim" sometimes means something different to hairdressers). That's where these popular quick-fix treatments come in.
