Split End Repair

It seems this time of year everything is dry-my skin, my hair…UGH! While getting my hair colored this morning, the colorist asked me if I was getting a cut as well. When I told her I just had one not even a month ago, she was shocked (Granted, I don’t let them take off very much length, but still…). I am plagued by split ends! Looks like it’s time to pull out the big guns.

There are three products I have used to combat those blasted ends. Luckily, I still have an ample supply (why did I even stop using them?). The first is Josie Maran Argan Oil Hair Serum. This light-weight but heavy duty oil can be used on wet or dry hair. It gives instant shine and long- lasting rejuvenation to hair. It penetrates the hair shaft to seal split ends and delivers intense moisture. Hair is left feeling silky and is very shiny. Plus, it smells wonderful.

Nexxus Pro-Mend is a great collection of split end repair products. There is a shampoo and conditioner, plus two treatment products. The first is their Leave-In Treatment Creme. Worked through wet hair, it binds the ends together while you style, and leaves hair looking damage free. I see a noticeable difference when I use this. They also have an overnight treatment that intensely repairs your ends while you sleep. You wake up with pretty hair and leaves no residue on your pillow.

There is another product I really want to try. It keeps popping up in my magazines and is definitely on my list of things to experience. Alterna’s Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil is a deeply nourishing treatment that repairs split ends, plus it helps protect your color. If anyone has used it, let me know what you think!

There is an ultimate treatment for split ends, and any stylist will tell you I’m right-get your hair trimmed. I am guilty of not following this rule, mainly because I don’t want my hair any shorter. But I guess healthy looking hair is more important than that extra 1/2-1 inch of hair!

    I carry the Alterna Bamboo line in my salon now. I love the Kendi Oil, the one you are showing is for my type of hair. They also make a spray mist formula(which I love) for fine hair. I think that would be the ticket for you! I love it more than any oil I have tried. I disappears into your hair. Love, love, love!!
