While a haircut is still not available, we have become even more concerned about the hair, especially the ends, which most strongly indicate the need to go to the stylist. Unfortunately, not all products are as good as their manufacturers describe. But there are those that really give visible results and help to postpone trimming for weeks ahead. The BeautyHack.ru editorial office is about your favorite oils, serums and sprays.
Split Ends Cream, CocoChoco REGULAR
Natalya Pikus, editor-in-chief of BeautyHack.ru:
- I discovered this Israeli brand when I dyed it blonde: CocoChoco shampoo and conditioner for bleached hair helped to maintain the perfect shade and appearance of the hair. Then I bought a cream for split ends - because no matter how high-quality and gentle the dyes are now, the treatment for the ends of bleached hair should be additional.
At first I was on my guard: the texture of the cream is dense and quite sticky, or something. It is quite dense, in texture it is really a cream, but it is not easy to wash it off your hands after applying it. And this is the only negative that is. The cream works great on the hair. It nourishes the "hollow" tips well, seals them. I apply it to wet hair and blow dry and blow dry. As a result, the hair looks shiny and healthy.
Nevertheless, the cream is a supportive measure, it does not cure, of course, and does not save you from having to renew your hair. In the reviews I read, they wrote that CocoChoco allows you not to get a haircut for up to six months. In my opinion, these merits are too exaggerated.

Oil for face, body and hair Huile Divine, Caudalie
Natalya Pikus, editor-in-chief of BeautyHack.ru:
As the name suggests, it is a versatile remedy. And just one smell of it can go crazy, it is so magnificent. However, this is not surprising, because the perfumer Jacques Cavalier himself conjured over it (he created the iconic Christian Dior Midnight Poison).
In general, for me this oil is an obligatory companion on trips, it allows you to take care of your hair, face and body skin at once, no need to take extra jars with you. But I'm adding it to this list because I most often use it as a support for the ends of my hair.
It contains a mix of four oils: grape, argan, sesame and hibiscus oil. All organic. Huile Divine by Caudalie is a dry oil. This means that it is made according to a special formula and does not leave greasy marks on clothes, it is quickly absorbed.
I put it on wet strands, and rub the rest into my hands. I leave the product to work for 10 minutes, and then dry my hair with a hairdryer. And this is the case when the wow effect is provided: the hair looks very healthy, shiny. The bonus is a complex scent that lasts a long time.

Capsules for hair ends with macadamia and avocado oils, Bali Secret
Tatiana Chernikova, editor of BeautyHack.ru:
- For the first time, a friend who settled in Indonesia brought me a jar with fancy capsules. She, a dyed blonde, before that still could not grow her hair below the shoulders: the ends broke off. And here - the scorching sun, the salty ocean, bunches squeezed by an elastic band while surfing. But the curls are like advertising. And noticeably longer. Arriving home for a visit, she shared a life hack: natural oils. Best applied at night whenever possible. And if time is running out, here it is, salvation, in a jar of vitamins.
There really are vitamins: A, C, E, proVit B5. Plus squeeze from argan, avocado and macadamia fruits. At the same time, the oil does not leave a greasy effect on the hair and hands, it is absorbed in a minute. The only inconvenience is that the capsules have to be cut with scissors. The first couple of times it looks like an attraction: pour it into the palm of your hand without splattering things and the bathroom.
But on my thin lightened hair, the effect was noticeable immediately. The tips became smoother and heavier, easier to comb. After drying with a hairdryer, they shone. With prolonged use, another effect appeared: the curls became softer.
Of the minuses - you can't find it in stores, you have to order it on the Internet. Consumption depends on the frequency of shampooing. 40 capsules are enough for me for a month and a half.

Firming anti-age oil Young. Again, Kevin. Murphy
Vasilisa Kakorina, beauty director of BeautyHack.ru: In any styling, one should not forget about hair protection, which increases the time "from haircut to haircut." With natural and fine hair, it is very difficult to find an oil that does not weigh the hair down. Young. Again fortifying oil is a must have that has been on my shelf for three years now. I apply the product to wet hair before styling from the middle of the hair, paying special attention to the ends. Also, the oil can be applied to dry hair for extra smoothness.
The oil is very light in texture, and the ideal composition with extracts of immortelle and apple, burdock and chestnut oils smoothes hair, adds shine, has thermal protection and antistatic effect. Price: 3240 RUB.
Hair elixir with apple extract Red Love Super Serum, Secret Professionnel by Phyto
Yulia Kozoliy, editor of BeautyHack.ru:
Several years ago, everyone was interested in this tool at once. Secret Professionnel by Phyto released an elixir that promised to solve 10 tasks at once (color protection, thermal protection, moisturizing, restoration, shine, etc.). There is no reason not to trust the brand. Firstly, behind her is a real professional Patrick Ales, who was responsible for styling Catherine Deneuve and Brigitte Bardot in the 60s, and then created his own herbal brand with a focus on hair care and restoration. And secondly, Super Serum has a composition that can easily cope with tightening the ends: argan oil, ceratonia plant extract (strengthens the strands), apple extract (artificially bred Red Love variety), which contains vitamins, antioxidants, oligoelements.
I do not have a well-established scheme for using the elixir: it can be applied at least every day to dry or damp hair without rinsing. The white cream is odorless, easily spreads on the hair, does not weigh down, but makes the strands silky. They feel more dense - I have been using it for a year now (I apply it both to wet hair and to dry hair to remove frizz), no split ends were found. Price: 800 rub. (30 ml)
Multifunctional oil for all hair types Elixir Ultime, Kerastase
Christina Semina, editor of BeautyHack.ru:
I have tried many end products, but always returned to the multifunctional Elixir Ultime oil, Kerastase. This product is the bestseller of the brand, it can be used in several ways: apply over the entire length before shampooing, use from the middle of the hair to the ends, or only on the ends before styling. I like the last option better. I usually rub two or three drops of oil on my palms and then apply them to the ends. This is what I do every time I wash my hair. In quarantine, I began to use the product on dry hair during the day.
Despite the fact that the oil seems very oily, on my dry strands it is absorbed instantly without leaving an oily sheen. I haven’t trimmed the ends in over two months, and although they are not as perfect as after a haircut, they don’t split. Thanks Kerastase!
Elixir Ultime, by the way, added a mix of rare oils - Pracaxi tree oil from the Amazon, argan oil from Morocco, corn oil from Central America, camellia oil from Asia. The aroma of the product is quite neutral, so it will definitely suit everyone.
