Vita Liasota, the founder of the natural cosmetics brand, cosmetic trichologist, columnist at BeautyHack, said whether it is true that hot scissors help to get rid of the problem and whether a haircut can be avoided. 8 facts you absolutely must know about split ends
Fact # 1: Getting regular haircuts won't help you grow your hair faster
A very common myth: the more you cut the ends, the better your hair grows. I would also like it to be true. Hair is a "dead" structure, and its condition along the length does not affect growth in any way.
Fact # 2: hot scissors do not improve the condition of the ends
A haircut with hot scissors is a marketing ploy and nothing else. They don't seal the ends! Hair melting temperature - 300 degrees. Stylists use devices with a maximum temperature of 150. In addition, they are made of low quality steel - it is impossible to make a normal cut.
Fact # 3: polishing your hair won't save you from split ends
After polishing, the hair really looks great. Although there is one big and fat "but": the machine makes the wrong cut - after a while the hair will start to split again, and stronger than before. As with hot scissors, these tools are made from cheap steel that can injure the hair.
Fact # 4: the ends cannot be soldered
Damaged ends have only one ending: they need to be cut off. Exfoliating, they cling to each other and get lost. They can be compared to the arrow on tights: if not cut, the delamination will continue along the length.
Fact # 5: if there are few damaged hairs, cut them yourself
Split ends are a reason to get hairdressing scissors. If there is little damage, cut these hairs at a 90-degree angle once a week.
Fact number 6: most often hair splits due to external reasons
The longer the hair, the more time it has been exposed to traumatic mechanical, physical and chemical factors. To avoid the appearance of split ends, you must carefully cover the scales. To do this, always use a balm, do not dry your hair upside down, do not use curling irons and irons.
Fact # 7: leave-in sprays are a must
They cover the hair with an invisible film, protecting it from aggressive environmental influences and mechanical damage.
Fact # 8: there are internal causes of split ends
If you are sure that you are taking care of your hair correctly, but they still split, take a mineral analysis. Be sure to check your levels of feritin, vitamin D, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, and B vitamins.
