Well! Who would not like to have smooth, shiny and healthy hair? But due to a large variety of chemical products available in the market, our hair tends to get damaged. Some of the common hair problems are dry hair, hair falling or thinning, gray hair or even split ends. The term split ends refers to the splitting or fraying of the hair shaft at the tip of your hair. The condition is medically called trichoptilosis. Split ends can be caused by thermal, mechanical or chemical stress or when the hair becomes damaged. This tends to weaken the protective outer layer of the hair cuticle. Lack of proper nourishment can make the problem of split ends even worse. They can look unappealing and make your hair shabby. But thanks to some home remedies, you can make your hair healthy all over again.
These home remedies can help get you rid of split ends:
1. Egg mask
Eggs are rich in protein and essential fatty acids in eggs can help treat split ends. Hair are primarily made up of protein and this is why eggs can help strengthen the hair follicles. In addition, eggs will make your hair smooth, reduce tangles, and make your hair thick. You can use an egg hair mask by mixing some oil or curd.
2. Coconut oil
Not only for health but coconut oil is rich in healthy fatty acids which makes it an excellent natural conditioner that can nourish your split ends.
Yogurt is again rich in calcium and protein and other healthy nutrients. You can combine yoghurt with egg or oil to make a hair mask. You can use this hair mask on regular basis for lustrous and thick hair.
The light and creamy texture of bananas is great for conditioning hair and can help you get rid of split ends. Rich in potassium and antioxidants you can make a hair mask with a mashed banana. You can even mix in some honey, lemon juice or coconut oil for extra moisture. Apply it to your split ends and wash it after it dries.
