Beauty Talk: Split End Repair
I have a confession to make: it has been more than 4 months since I last paid a visit to the hairdresser. Usually, I try to make an appointment every 3 months or so, but lately my schedule has been so packed, that quite frankly I haven’t been able to make the time. Luckily, I have learned to take good care of my hair over the years – something I definitely take great pride in – and honestly, there is no sight of split ends [insert pat on back here]. Aside from the fact that I was blessed with thick hair, aka good genes, I do think the right care makes all the difference. Over the years I have experimented with various products, but one thing has always been a fixed part of my routine: A leave-in hair oil or treatment. If you ask me, this step the key to saying good-bye to split ends. My hair is exposed to a lot of heat because I blow-dry it straight daily, but with the right products split ends are nowhere to be seen. In other words: no need for a trim just yet!
I have always loved Aveda products (you have to get the Hand Relief!!), but never really tried their hair care line. Until now, that is! Recently, I switched to the Aveda Damage Remedy™ line since I was having some skin problems and read that Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), which is an ingredient in almost every shampoo I have ever used, may be the cause. I didn’t want an option from the pharmacy, so I went to Aveda because it is a brand I trust and that works entirely with plant-based natural ingredients. The Damage Remedy shampoo is amongst 5 shampoos the brand offers that completely forgo sulfates.
Aveda Damage Remedy™ Split End Repair: Instead of a leave-in oil, I currently love the Split End Repair which instantly repairs split ends, and helps prevent future splits from forming thanks to Nangai oil. Nangai oil helps attract the separated ends back together, while helping smooth and seal hair strands. The Split End Remedy doesn’t only work against split ends, it also protects the hair from heat.
