How to Prevent Split Ends like a Hairstylist

Share Tweet Pin

Ah, split ends...it’s a fact of life that all of us undergo damaged strands at some point in our lives. Unless you religiously trim every six weeks and cut out heat products, chances are your ends are probably already split. When our ends are frayed it can make our whole hairstyle fall dull. But that doesn’t mean we need to stop all the curling iron fun in order to have healthy locks. With the right products and proper care, you can have your ends under control!

We took advice from hairstylist Ruben Colon of Sally Hershberger’s on keeping your hair healthy. Let’s take a peek...


1. Use a good brush

Did you know the only safe way to detangle your hair is in the shower, with conditioner and a wide-tooth comb? "Never use a brush with wire or plastic bristles. I like the Mason Pearson brush because it has natural bristles that are gentle on hair and reduce breakage."


2. Wear Nylon elastics

It’s time to part ways with tight rubber elastics. Try Emi-Jay ties instead! They look just as good on your hand as they do in your hair--and they won’t leave a crease! Emi-Jay hair ties are all hand-dyed, so each one is unique in variation of color.


3. Use protectant spray

If you have to blow-dry your hair every day take some time to let it air-dry on its own to take out the moisture. Before taking out the blow dryer, spray a little Sally Hershberger Keratin Rx Spray to smooth your strands and prevent less damage.


Of course, if you follow these healthy hair tips above you might just get away with longer times between trims! So, tell us, what are some products you use to keep your hair in shape? We’d love to know! Tell us in the comments below.
