If cutting your hair regularly isn’t something you want and you think is going to affect your length goals, I did some research about the best natural home remedies for split ends. First thing you need to know is why split ends happen. Your hair gets in direct contact to pollution, sun, dust, wind, not to mention, the curlers, straighteners, dryers, gels, serums and a variety of beauty products, most of this every single day. Also washing your hair too often with hot water, or going to the pool, where the water is full of chlorine and other damaging solutions for your hair, will make your ends split faster. Also coloring your hair or putting too much products in it every day will definitely not help your cause. Using lots of conditioner when washing your hair will definitely help your hair in the long run.
These are just some of the best natural home remedies for split ends I could find for you, and the ones that seemed the most trust worthy and safe to use. Check them out and see what best fits your needs, so you don’t have to buy expensive products that give you the same results as the treatments you make yourself at home with what you probably already have at hand.
1. Honey and Curd
Mix these two ingredients together and rub them on your split ends, whatever is left you can use it on your entire hair length because it gives your hair a nice shine and healthy look. Wash it off after 20 minutes, and you’re good to go.
2. Egg, Orange Juice and Banana
My favorite hair mask when eggs are involved, is the one using orange juice and banana. Beat two eggs and mix in the orange juice and a ripe banana, then use it as a mask on your split ends or even the whole length. Let it sit for 30 minutes, then wash thoroughly.
3. Papaya and Yogurt
If you have a ripe papaya, mashed it really good, mix it with some yogurt and try not to eat it. Apply this as a mask for 30 minutes and wash it off afterwards. Your shiny hair will thank me later. Note: You can also apply this to your face and body because it is a good hydrator and makes your skin soft.
4. Cream and Milk
No, not for your coffee, but you can save some for that too. Keep it in for 30 minutes and your hair will feel reinvigorated and healthy afterwards.
Again, not for your stomach, but for your hair, as it’s a good moisturizer, and using it to rinse off after you shampoo will leave your hair shiny and healthy. Make it a habit out of rinsing your hair every time you wash it and you’ll see great result when it comes to your split ends. Note: After you dry your hair, if you run out of gels and hair spray, you can also use beer for this purpose. The smell could be too much though, but it’s a quick fix to your problem if you ever need any.
6. Avocado and Olive Oil
Another nice and easy mask mix for your split ends. You wash it off after 30 minutes, and it will strengthen them. And this is another one of those masks that can also be used on your skin, with great result in the long run. You can easily substitute the avocado with a ripe banana.
7. Chamomile Tea
Put a few bags in hot water and let them sit for a few minutes then rinse your hair, add more cold water, or let it cool off, with this easy tea remedy. Make this a habit and you will never have to suffer because of the split ends.
8. Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter or Clarified Butter
After you wash your hair you can apply one of these butters on your damp hair while massaging the split ends. You can leave them over night and rinse them in the morning. They will nourish your hair ends and prevent them from splitting further.
9. Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil
All this oils help with dry hair, split ends, dullness, and frizzy hair, if you massage your damp hair and leave them in for an hour, or over night, or mix it with your shampoo and use it to wash your hair as usual, you’ll see great results after just a few treatments.
Don’t be too surprised. Mayonnaise contains egg, oil, lemon and mustard if you’re doing it at home. Great if you have any left over mayonnaise that will spoil if you are not going to eat it shortly. It gives your hair great shine and strengthens your split ends.
If I were you I would keep every recipe in this article for whenever I need a hair mask and I have limited supplies, or I don’t have the ones that I used last time. You can use all of these one at a time, depending on what ingredients you have at home. It’s better you make your own natural home remedies for split ends, and you have plenty to choose from. I hope you get inspired and let me know who it feels no have healthy hair without split ends. I know my hair is thanking me, and I can also keep the length I want without cutting the ends too often. See you around!
