Sad I want to know how dp I either heal splits ends or at least keep them at bay. I have very healthy hair. Its thick, bouncy,soft, managable has plenty of body and is growing very nicely but I have split ends. I can't afford to go to a salon right now so I was wondering if anyone knows how to either repair split ends or at least keep them at bay until I can get to a hair dresser.

Hey girl I learned the hard way about split ends here in Iraq! Rolling Eyes You have to keep OIL on the ends of your hair Razz , you must do it daily! Laughing When I took down my braids and was like how in the hell do I have split ends already? Twisted Evil It was because I was moisturizing my hair and not puttin oil on the ends of my hair! When I started doing that, it was looking healthier! Just try it and see! Very Happy

Also finding a good water-based & oil-based moisturizers will help keep your ends & hair supple and smooth. Water-based 1st then oil-based to seal or just plain oil oil or grease to seal (not on scalp)

Smile Did oiling your ends heal them or just make them appear to be healthy

I put vitamin E on my ends and in a few hours, I touched them. They have NEVER felt so silky and smooth before...

I have tried it but stopped because it weigh too much on my hair. It claims it does but I didn't use it long enough to tell. However, if you take a clove of garlic and chopped it up and put in your conditioner for 20 minutes you can get quicker results.

That is fabulous too. Please if you try it mix it with an oil like Coconut oil or jojoba oil. Many people are trying it with Lemon but I think this can be very drying and can cause breakage. Oil the scalp not the hair.

Many people just put a drop of each in their hands and work it in that way but I prefer to put it in a bottle and dilute the MN with the oil of your choice. To make sure you don't put it on your hair I use a Q-Tip just to oil the scalp. This works wonders too. No mess and right on target.

Split ends can be rude awakening and yes I have tried every shampoo and conditioner around to try to save them. The truth is they really can't be saved and the only real solution is to cut them off, if you continue to let them dangle they will grow upward and damage the healthy growth of your hair. Learned that the hard way when I went to a beautician with past shoulder length hair, and was told its long but to many split ends, so chop, chop, chop, left with a short bob cut but it was very healthy.

Its very important to moisturize and oil them ends as you do the rest of your hair. I always start from my ends on up, so that way you don't leave them out. I do this two times a day EVERYDAY.
