Easy, Fast Tips on how to get rid of dry, split ends.

Rockin those Jerry Curls!!!

How to Get rid of those split ends.

-Wash your hair with mayo once a week or so. Put a dallop in the palm of your hand, and work your way through your whole head.

-If mayo is too messy for you, beer is a wonderful conditioner too. The smell quickly disperses.

-Shampooing every day washes out the hair's protective oils, making the shaft more vulnerable to break and split. If you do wash your hair every day, use the shampoo labeled "For dry or damaged hair"

-Using a conditioner after shampooing can help those ends.

-Dry your hair without heat. Electric curlers and straightening irons can damage the hair shaft too, and the ends.

-Use shampoos with hair thickeners.

-Wearing a hat during windy weather can prevent your hair from fraying from the wind.

-Strive for low-maintenance hair.

-Or just plain, snip them off. Every 6 weeks or so.

I have really dry and damaged hair. It is always getting tangled with itself because of the split-ends, and it feels brittle.

I have been looking for a good leave-in conditioner for awhile now. I've tried many different brands. Many left my hair stiff, like styling gel, while others left it greasy, and some just didn't seem to do anything at all.

A couple of months ago I decided to try bottle of Shielo's Antioxidant Leave in Protectant, because the stylist at an expensive salon in NYC recommended it. I thought "why not?"

Before I go into further detail, let me explain my hair more. It is on the longer side, straight, very fine, and color treated. I just wanted to give more info since different hair types might have different results. What works for my straight hair might not work as well for curly hair, and so forth.

The first day I used it I combed it into my towel dried hair, giving the ends of my hair a little extra. The first thing I noticed was that the product wasn't really sticky like many of the other products I have tried, which is great. It also has a very nice scent. Once my hair had dried it was noticeably silkier, smoother, and tangle free! The scent lingered all day.

I have continued to use the product everyday for the past two months. There has been visible improvement in my hair. It isn't as dry anymore, the split-ends haven't gotten worse, and my hair has more shine. Overall, it just looks and feels much healthier.

I use the "Mane and Tails Horse Shampoo abd Conditioner". Not only does it help with split ends, but it has a special hair and nail growth ingredient in it, and my hair grew 3 inches in only 2 months! It also made my hair much thicker and more healthy looking :)

Mane and tail is for horses what it does is strech out you hair till its like plastic so i would recommend you not use it. But it does grow it out but not in a good way!
