Hair is probably one of the most important elements to make us give a great first impression and that many consider ‘sacred’. The disappointment comes when we see that our hair begins to break and our tips are split into two (or more) after investing in thousands of masks, conditioners and oils that promise to hydrate and repair them.
Maybe the idea of getting a haircut is the last of your options, but we regret to say that it is the most beneficial solution in terms of hair health. Would you really prefer to have long unhealthy hair to a short hair style with style, and above all, health?
A haircut can be very flattering in more ways than one. It can help you keep your hair healthy and give you a fresh new look. Here are 5 options to make you change your mind about getting rid of those awful split ends and give yourself a new updated look.
1. Try Emily Ratajkowski’s look
You can try this hair cut, but more importantly, remember to minimize the use of blow driers. When applying heat to your hair, it decreases its natural moisture, leaving it dry, rough and brittle. This can cause physical hair trauma, and the result is split ends. So, the best way to dry it is to let your hair dry naturally, and the best way to style it is heat-less. Be gentle and treat it well.
2. Go for light waves just like Lily Collins
Collins looks perfect in this hairstyle, and you could give it a try as well. Keep in mind that if you have split ends or are prone to having them, you have to apply leave- in conditioner to your hair. This will protect it from the regular wear-and-tear that can happen when you’re combing and styling and also shields it from damaging environmental factors such as UV Rays.
3. Try a natural look just like Alexa Chung
Chung has a carefree vibe that you could emulate. Simply, don’t forget that vigorously rubbing your hair dry with a towel can create tangles and twists in unnatural directions, which causes breakage and split ends. So try instead to gently dab the dripping hair with a towel in order to get rid of the excess water.
4. Be more ladylike like Emma Watson
Emma Watson‘s haircut is a great choice if you’re looking for a new hairstyle in order to get rid of your split ends. Another great alternative is to wear a scarf, a hat or a beret that will keep the moisture in and protect your hair against the elements. Also, this is a great solution for those bad hair days.
5. Go for a short bob like Selena Gomez
Selena dazzles in this great short bob and it’s a great style if you’re looking for a fresh start with your hair. Just remember to always use sharp scissors or the ones meant for haircuts. Using a blunt pair can fray your ends and cause more splits. Also, try to cut about 1/4 of an inch above the split, in order to cancel any chances that the splits might reappear.
