Walk-In Salon Shares Everything You Need to Know About Split Ends, San Antonio, Texas

Your hair looks its best when it is healthy, vibrant, and beautiful. However, if you’re having trouble styling your locks, split ends might be to blame. Fortunately, there are a few key ways you can restore your mane to its proper glory. Below, the experts at Premier Cuts Hair Salon, a walk-in salon in San Marcos, TX, share some essential tips to try.

How Hair Gets Damaged

True to its name, a split end occurs when a strand of dry, brittle hair breaks along the shaft. This breakage can be caused by using hot styling tools over time, rough handling or towel-drying, and using products that contain drying ingredients. Most commonly, split ends occur when you’re overdue for a trim.

How a Walk-In Salon Will Help

Aside from providing regular trims, a professional at a walk-in salon will recommend individualized products, such as moisturizing treatments to help strengthen the strands. If you can’t live without a straightening iron, a stylist will recommend heat protectant products to guard against the damage that leads to breakage.

Additionally, being gentle will prevent damage. For instance, don’t roughly twist and wring your hair when drying it with a towel. Instead, gently blot and squeeze individual sections, and air-dry when possible. When dealing with a tangle, don’t roughly force a comb through your locks. Instead, use your fingers to gently pull apart larger tangles without breaking the strands.

If you’re tired of bad hair days, a trim can save your style in no time. The professionals at Premier Cuts Hair Salon offer haircuts, styling, and eyebrow waxing for the whole family. Plus, their spa-like deep conditioning treatments will moisturize your mane to help prevent future split ends.
