How to Manage and Prevent Split Ends

Split ends. We all get them and they can be frustrating when trying to grow your hair out. Ultimately the best way to get rid of split ends is to get a trim, but if you don’t want to part with your hair yet, there are some great ways to manage your split ends and prevent even more from popping up.

Start by being gentle with your hair. It’s tempting to pick at a split end whenever you see one, but that can cause more damage to your hair. If you like to towel dry your hair, instead of rubbing it dry, use the towel to squeeze the water out. Roughly towel-drying your hair can easily lead to split ends and breakage.

The more stress you put your hair through, the more susceptible to damage it becomes. In addition to towel-drying, blow-drying your hair often is not great if you want to avoid split ends. Try to let you hair air dry as much as possible and if you do use a blow dryer, turn the heat down and avoid your ends. You will want to lower the temperature on your heat tools as well.

While there is no way to get rid of split ends without cutting them off, you can reduce the appearance of them by keeping your hair moisturized. Use a shampoo and conditioner that are specifically geared toward adding moisture. Consider incorporating a leave-in conditioner into your hair routine. A Keratin treatment will also do wonders for the health of your hair.

No one likes to deal with split ends, but knowing how to keep your hair healthy and getting regular trims will go a long way to prevent them in the future.

Hair Tips for Fall!

We here at Lookin’ Good Salon hope you had a wonderfully spooky Halloween!

We are now deep into fall and the weather gets cooler every week. With cooler weather comes drier hair and you may be struggling to keep your hair moisturized. Luckily there are a few things you can do to get rid of dryness:

  1. Wash your hair only a few times (2-3) a week. Washing your hair too frequently can strip it of its natural oils. You don’t need to wash your hair every day to keep it healthy and clean. Give your hair a break and see how much better it feels.

2. Limit the amount of heat you are putting on your hair. We love curls and blowouts as much as the next person, but using heat tools on your hair too often can do major damage. Letting your hair air dry and cutting back on the straightener will allow your hair to stay healthy.

3. Invest in a high-quality deep conditioner and use weekly. We highly recommend GK’s Hair’s Deep Protein Treatment Conditioner. Regular use will keep your hair soft and moisturized as we continue on into the winter months.

4. Use a leave-in conditioner. A good leave-in conditioner is essential to your hair health all the time, but especially during the fall and winter months. If you haven’t already, begin incorporating a leave-in conditioner into your hair care routine. We suggest GK Hair’s leave-in cream or spray.

5. Stay hydrated. This tip is often overlooked, but it is very important to drink enough water throughout the day. If you are dehydrated, your hair will be as well. Set reminders or carry around a water bottle so getting your daily recommended water intake will be easy.
