Split ends can be quite annoying, they don’t just make your hair look unhealthy but they also hamper your hair growth. Although very common, it is quite a serious hair concern and paying no heed to it will only cause more damage to your hair. If you have recently got a trim and still notice split ends then your hair needs some serious nourishment.
A home-made DIY hair mask using nourishing ingredients from your pantry can nurse your hair back to health. A formula with the right conditioning ingredients will treat split ends as well as prevent future damage too.
Avocado protein mask
You will need:
- 1 ripe avocado
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
If you love homemade guacamole, chances are you already have a few avocados in your pantry. Cut a ripe one and transfer it to a bowl, crush it and add one egg. Now, add olive oil to make a thick paste. Apply all over hair, focusing on the ends and leave it on for 10-20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water.
Honey and olive oil treatment
You will need:
- 2 tablespoon of raw honey
- 3 tablespoon of olive oil
Mix the two ingredients together in a bowl and apply it to shampooed hair. Leave on for 20-30 minutes and rinse off. Wash your hair with a mild shampoo to get rid of any residue. The moisturising properties of honey and olive oil repair hair from root to tip.
Apart from using these DIY hair masks, it is also essential to replace your current shampoo with one that addresses this concern. The Dove Split End Rescue Shampoo repairs existing split ends and prevents new ones in the future.
