Dear T2T: Hi, I straighten my hair a lot, and I’ve noticed I have really bad split ends — but it doesn’t start just on the end of the strand, they start in the middle too. The only way it seems to get rid of them is to cut my hair really short, but I’m not doing that. Is there any special products I should use? — Shaggy Mane

Response No. 1:

I have that same problem! I have long hair & I’m constantly straightening my hair. My mother’s always telling me to lay off the hot irons, but I never listen. Here are some few tips you could do to help resolve your problems:brush through your hair before showering, try not to brush your hair while it’s wet, and use split end treatments to prevent splitting such as: Wella, Aussie, Nexus and you can use a paddle brush to get a gentle touch.

Response No. 2:

A couple of solutions to solve this problem since you don’t want to cut your hair is to think about going all natural and Vaseline on your split ends or also look up certain products.

Change the shampoo or conditioner that you been using. Use deep conditioning. Also shampoo your hair every three days and also try using head and shoulders on your scalp and really wash your hair really thoroughly. Try not to bleach or dye your hair because that will really make your hair fall out.
