What do I do when my hair is dry and split ends? Let’s get to know the causes and treatments for split ends.

Split ends make the hair at the ends look puffy and brittle and can break and fall out at the ends. Usually, the split ends at the end of the hair may be divided into 2 or 3 lobes and may reach 2-3 cm in length. The most common solution is to cut off the split ends. This is because if left untreated, split ends may continue to grow towards the roots and cause frizz.

But people who want or grow long hair  may not want to cut or trim their hair. In fact,  we may not always need a haircut. Sometimes proper maintenance  including avoiding and modifying certain behaviors  can help your hair regain its strength and health.
