Up there with visible roots as one of the worst hair disasters, split ends not only ruin your sleek, shiny look that you’ve just spent 45 minutes straightening, but they can also ruin your overall hair health if left un-treated. Usually a result of colouring, heat damage or environmental stress on the follicle, split ends are when the strand separates which can lead to further breakage higher up. Although the usual treatment for split ends is simply to cut them off with regular trims (which we advise leaving to the pros!), there are ways to prevent these annoying little breaks from happening to keep your hair as healthy as possible whilst we are all stuck inside.
L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths
To keep hair in it’s healthiest shape possible, try to only wash when necessary. Over washing can dry out the hair and cause damage, stripping it of it’s natural oils and nutrients. Although there’s no specific schedule to suit all when it comes to shampooing, the general guideline would be every 2-3 days. Most importantly, when the time does come to lather up, use a Shampoo and Conditioner that will nourish the hair such as the L’Oreal Elvive Dream Lengths Restoring Shampoo and Detangling Conditioner. Together the duo are a cocktail of Keratin, Vitamins and Castor Oil, that work to cleanse and reinforce the hair. The range is specially formulated for long hair (the new default trend at the moment!), helping to reduce and prevent breakage whilst leaving hair soft and supple. Top tip: when washing keep the water to a cooler temperature to maximise shine.
