Myths About Split Ends You Need to Stop Believing

myths about split ends

The curse of the split end…we all know the struggle. You might believe so-called facts about split ends that aren’t actually true. If you understand your hair better and how split ends work, you can care for your hair better. And at the end of the day, that’s what our hair stylists want for you!

Frizzy Hair Means You Have Split Ends

Frizzy hair and split ends aren’t the same thing. Split ends are caused by dryness and are a physical trait of the hair. Frizzy hair is a matter of hair texture. You need to treat them differently. If your hair is frizzy, it doesn’t necesarily mean you have split ends. To tame your frizz, we recommend the KMS California Tame Frizz line. We love it!

Using Hair Oil Fixes Split Ends

Split ends are caused by dryness – when the natural oils from your scalp can’t reach the ends of your hair. Lots of people think the solution is adding hydration to the ends of the hair. While this helps to keep your hair moisturized, it won’t get rid of the split ends. Nothing can repair a split piece of hair. Sorry!

A Trim Will Fix Split Ends

A hair cut is definetly the way to get rid of those nasty split ends. However, just a trim at the end might not get all the splits. Some hair splits higher up on the hair shaft. Talk to your stylist about your split ends and hair damage. Your stylist will be able to recommend a cut and style that eliminates most of your split ends.

So what’s the best way to deal with split ends? It’s all about prevention and maintenance. Come in for consistent hair trims to catch splits right as they start. Keep hair hydrated to prevent breakage in the first place. Aveda has amazing cremes that will add hydration to your hair. We love Botanical Kinetics™ Intense Hydrating Rich Creme.
