What Causes Hair Split Ends? By: Betty Nangia
On: September 18, 2020

A split end is when your hair splinters due to damage to the oldest part of the hair shaft. If it goes untreated, split ends lead to what most people consider breakage, which is when the hair breaks at a point that makes the strand significantly shorter than the unbroken hair.

Usually, that damage and breakage is caused by heat treatments, chemical treatments, coloring, dryness, or just wear-and-tear with age.

Every day bad hair habits

While genetics play a role, several factors cause split ends to manifest. The most common culprits are everyday stressors like taking a hot shower, brushing out tangled, putting your hair up in a towel to dry, and sleeping with your hair tied back—all of which can lead to hair breakage and split ends. These grooming practices are a routine occurrence for most people, so they are causing damage to their hair without even realizing it.

Heat styling

Frequent use of hot styling tools like hairdryers, straighteners, curling irons, and hot rollers have a large impact as they strip the hair of moisture, making it far more delicate and susceptible to splitting.

Chemical treatments

Chemical straightening treatments and perms, along with dying or bleaching your hair, all weaken your precious hair strands’ integrity, which increases your likelihood for split ends.
Using the wrong hair products

As well, using hair products that are full of drying agents and alcohols further strip the hair, increasing dryness and hair breakage overall. Lastly, if you’ve been basking in the satisfaction of peeling off your split ends, or if you skip out on regular trims to grow your hair, you’re not doing yourself any favors.

Climate and weather

While all these factors are largely within your control, there are some lesser-known causes of split ends, harder to pinpoint and manage. Environmental aggressors such as sun exposure or a lack of humidity can lead to dryness, thereby making you more prone to developing split ends.

Bad nutrition

Ever heard the phrase, “You are what you eat?” well, it’s true! A lack of nutrients due to an inadequate diet, vitamin deficiencies, and hormones all play a role in our hair’s health. We have come up with an amazing haircare range that specifically focuses on split ends. It includes:

Hair Care Naturally By: Betty Nangia
On: March 28, 2019

You must be patient when it comes to switching your hair care from commercial to natural. There is often a “detox” period where you hair may feel stiff, sticky, oily, heavy, or dry. The myriad of synthetic products that are so often in our commercial shampoos and conditioners artificially coat the hair with plastic or protein polymers to make it look and feel undamaged. The more damaged the hair, the more porous it becomes; the more porous the hair, the more it absorbs these synthetic “protein” Read More
