How many of us are in awe of long and lustrous hair? While it is always a treat to your eyes, it isn’t a cakewalk to maintain long and beautiful locks. Split ends are of the most common causes of hair loss; these occur when the texture of your hair becomes brittle and dry.

Approximately 25% of Indian females experience hair loss due to split ends [1]. When there is excessive usage of chemical hair products, you are bound to get split ends. Weather conditions and techniques like straightening or blow drying can also add to these woes. If you do not get rid of split ends, hair strands continue to break considerably. To stop the occurrence of split hair, there are simple and amazing home remedies that can try out! Here are seven easy-to-follow hair growth tips to get rid of your split ends and stop hair fall.

1. Applying an egg yolk mask 

An egg is one of the easily available ingredients you can get on your hands on, and applying it to your hair regularly can reduce the occurrence of split hair. The protein present in egg yolk nourishes your scalp and increases the shine of your hair. Eggs work both like a conditioner and a moisturizer on your hair. Prepare an egg mask using the yolk in the following way and bid goodbye to your split ends!

These ingredients are all that you require for preparing an egg mask. 

  • The yolk of an egg 
  • Almond oil 
  • Olive oil 
  • Honey 

Whisk them thoroughly and leave them on your hair for approximately 30 to 45 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water.

2. Restore moisture

One of the main causes of split ends is the dryness of your hair. You need to moisturize your scalp with a proper application of oil. You may apply coconut, almond, or olive oil to your scalp for proper nourishment. Use these separately or combine them and massage your scalp. Regular oil massage on your hair can reduce split ends, as per studies [2].

While almond oil contains essential vitamins and minerals, the presence of lauric acid in coconut oil provides adequate nourishment to your tresses. Olive oil keeps your hair healthy by strengthening hair follicles as it contains many antioxidants. Massage your hair with these oils regularly and leave overnight for good results. Applying oil on your hair is one of the simplest split ends remover techniques you can try out.

3. Apply a papaya hair mask

Papaya contains enzymes that eliminate dead cells on your scalp. As it is rich in antioxidants and folic acid, applying a papaya mask on your hair increases the blood circulation in your scalp. Also, the antifungal properties of papaya ensure that your scalp never gets dry, thereby reducing split ends.

Prepare the hair mask in the following way and apply it for proper hair nourishment. 

  • Take two ripe papaya slices and mash them thoroughly 
  • Add yogurt and mix them properly 
  • Apply it to your hair for 30 minutes before rinsing it off with a mild shampoo

4. Improve hair health with aloe vera

Be it frizzy hair or split ends, aloe vera gel is a suitable remedy for improving your hair growth. It contains proteolytic enzymes, which remove dead cells from your scalp. With its antimicrobial properties, your scalp is properly moisturized and nourished. For applying aloe vera gel, extract the gel from fresh leaves. Leave it on your hair for approximately 40 minutes. Wash it off with a mild shampoo using lukewarm water. This is one of the easiest split ends treatment methods you can follow regularly. If you take proper care, long hair is easily achievable!

5. Trim hair regularly to reduce split ends 

Regular trimming of your hair can save you from unnecessary haircuts. Ensure that you trim your hair every two months approximately. This way, you can nip your split end problem right in the bud before it causes more damage to the hair. When you trim your hair, its growth continues properly, and split ends reduce. Remember not to peel your split ends apart, as it can worsen your hair texture.

6. Minimize the usage of chemicals

If you expose your strands to harsh chemical products, they may remove the moisture from your scalp. This is the cause of both dryness and frizziness, making your hair resemble the texture of a rope. As a result, your hair becomes dry and frizzy, like the texture of a rope. This can increase split ends. Using hair straighteners or blow dryers can also decrease the texture of your strands due to the excessive heat. To prevent split ends, it is ideal to use natural ingredients on your hair as they do not contain chemicals.

All you need to do is mix honey with warm water and apply it to the hair after shampooing. This way, you can control dryness on your hair and minimize split ends.
