One of the biggest beauty myths is that you can “reverse” split ends. Unfortunately, the only way to fix a split end is to cut it off however, you can keep them from getting worse or prevent them from happening in the first place.
A finishing serum (spray or liquid base) with keratin or a high-grade silicon oil will help seal the ends together and prevent it from running further up the hair Olaplex Bonding Oil acts like a cast for split ends, temporarily uniting broken hair fibers to make them less noticeable.
To prevent more breakage from happening, blow-dry your hair on cool, and use a detangling comb instead of a brush to detangle (brushing can drag the knots and result in breakage).
If you use heat styling tools daily, invest in a quality heat protectant and avoid placing heat directly on to the ends of hair. It also helps to let the hair air dry a little.
Now let’s send the split ends on about their life, they have no place in your hair!
