What Are Split Ends?

Also called “dead ends,” split ends happen when the tips of your tresses literally fray to form a Y. These frazzled hair cuticles reflect less light and make locks look dull.

What Causes Split Ends?

1. Over-washing
Over-washing is defined as three or more times a week. Every wash strips out more of your hair’s much-needed natural oils.
2. Rough handling while wet or tangled
Water-logged hair is weak hair that is especially prone to breakage and split ends. 
3. Excessive use of hot styling tools
No matter how cute your style, frequent use of hot tools is a ticket to damaged hair.
4. Chemical treatments
More culprits of split ends: hair dyes, perm treatments and straightening chemicals. They zap moisture from your hair and can lead to breakage.
