2 simple home remedies for split ends and dry ends without getting your hair cut

Depending on the texture of your hair, it tends to form a feather-like tip by parting the hair shafts. These are called split ends and often tend to stop your hair from growing if you don’t take care of it properly. The golden question here is – why do we get split ends? It’s when you stop or don’t take care of your hair properly. It usually occurs on dry, malnourished hair where the scalp’s natural oils cannot reach the tips. Excessive heat styling, sun exposure, and hot water can worsen the condition. One of the best tips to keep in mind is to make sure your hair is well hydrated so it doesn’t split.
