Split ends treatments that really work are hard to find but I think I have discovered one that really works. There’s nothing more annoying to me than split ends. I have fairly fine, thin hair to begin with. It’s not the easiest to manage. Split ends just make it all the more difficult to get my hair to look the way I want it to. Split ends can leave your hair frizzy and flyaway and that’s not a great look for anyone. Product provided. Post contains affiliate links.

Split Ends Treatments & Causes

The causes of split ends are many and include excessive heat styling and color treating your hair.  Since I use a blow dryer every day and regularly highlight  my hair, you can see why this is sometimes an issue for me.  When your hair dries out, the ends are more likely to split. Once split, it’s very difficult to repair.  There are a few things you can do to treat your split ends:

  • Get your hair cut regularly. If left unattended, the hair will continue to split up the shaft. Cutting off the split end is one of the best ways to prevent it from spreading.
  • Wash your hair every other day and not every day. Washing your hair every day can strip the moisture from your hair which encourages split ends.
  • Use a cushioned paddle brush with flexible bristles to brush your hair.  Don’t use brushes with hard bristles.
  • Always use conditioner when you wash your hair. When you apply it, focus mainly on the ends of your hair.
  • When you use a hair band to put your hair up, avoid those with metal strips on the band. The metal will snag at your hair, breaking it and causing split ends.
  • Hair products with Brazilian nut oil can strengthen and repair split ends while preventing frizz and fly-aways.

I have been using Kimble Beauty Shine Serum with Brazilian nut & acai berry to add shine to my hair.  My first thought was that because it is oil based it would weigh my hair down but it doesn’t at all. It’s very light weight.

Kimble Beauty is named after Kim Kimble. The name Kim Kimble has been synonymous with beauty and glamour for over a decade, and today she continues to raise the bar as one of the most acclaimed celebrity hair gurus in the business. Kimble has developed a niche for creating scene-stealing, high concept looks adorned by the likes of Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Shakira, Mary J.

  1. I try really hard to not curl or blow dry my hair. I have stick straight hair so I guess not everyone can do that. I’d try that serum especially if I had split ends or flyaways!

  2. I am guilty of all those torture methods on my hair! 

  3. Since I moved to the farm I let the air dry my hair but I still have some split ends now and again. I’ll have to check this out. Thanks so much.

  4. I love a good shine serum to add silkiness to my hair and minimize frizz.

  5. I have really long hair but it is oh so thin, in fact it dries quickly so I don’t need a hair dryer. I wash it even less than every other day since my scalp is more dry. The key for me is to snip off those split ends regularly and I do it myself.

  6. I hate split ends, but I’ve gotten better at making sure I don’t get them as I get older. Now that I am not in an office job I leave my hair down a lot more, and I find that it really helps.

  7. My daughter has split ends…really need to work on improving them for her!

    I treat my hair with a serum too, it adds great manageability and cuts down on frizz caused by over drying with styling.

  9. Great tips! I never wash my hair everyday so that’s good to know it’s one of the things to help prevent split ends lol 🙂

    I am so guilty of most of these. I need to get better at following the tips to avoid them.
