Thin Hair Got You Down hairfinity

Thin Hair Got You Down? Turn Up the Volume!

There are several factors which can cause your hair to become thin over time.  Hair thickness comes from having an adequate amount of keratin protein, which is made up of amino acids, and held together by hydrogen bonds. When there is a sufficient amount of amino acids, hair is thick, strong, and voluminous.

However, when it lacks these building blocks, the hair weakens and can become thin and frail. Amino acids also produce red blood cells that supply nutrients and oxygen to hair follicles further contributing to the health and thickness of each strand.  So whether your hair is becoming thin due to over styling, chemical treatments, or simply aging, adding a supplement such as HAIRFINITY Volume Builder Amino Acid Booster can help replace these hair building nutrients:

  • Cystine is an amino acid that has been shown to stimulate hair regrowth and fight hair loss while providing strength to the hair shaft.  Up to 14% of your hair is made up of this amino acid. Dietary sources of Cystine include chicken, broccoli and milk.
  • Arginine is one of the most important amino acids for hair growth. It produces nitric oxide, a compound which helps improve blood circulation and the supply of nutrients to the hair follicles. This can help improve the very first stages of hair growth. Dietary sources of Arginine include coconut, sunflower seeds, and fish.
  • Lysine help reduce the enzyme shown be a prominent factor in male and female pattern baldness. This amino acid can also improve iron absorption to prevent iron deficiency which has been linked to hair loss and excessive hair shedding.
  • Methionine is a sulphur rich amino acid that helps your body produce the keratin protein which is the main material of the hair shaft. It also helps boost collagen production, another protein that makes up the hair structure.  Dietary sources of Methionine include eggs, fish, and sesame seeds.
  • Taurine acts as a protective shield against the negative effects of TGF-beta, a protein that may cause hair loss. It has also been shown to help increase the hair diameter when taken by women who had fine or thin hair.

You may be eating a healthy and balanced diet! But including foods and supplements that contain these can help boost the growth and health of your hair, and also your overall well-being.

3 Steps to Protect Your Hair from Damage Before It Starts

Damaging your hair is pretty easy to do, but protecting it from damage takes some serious effort.  Hair can become damaged from everyday styling, so it is important to take preventative measures before your hair becomes damaged.

1. Get Your Collagen –Hair is made of collagen (protein), so it makes sense that adding collagen to your diet will help your hair. Collagen supplements can help hair grow to its optimal length and thickness. Collagen gives your hair its structure and healthy bounce due to it being responsible for the strength and elasticity of your hair.  Collagen is 10 times more elastic than the springs in your bed, so you can imagine what this means for your hair.  As you age, your body’s natural collagen levels decrease which may cause your hair to start thinning and shedding.  Collagen may help strengthen your hair and prevent hair loss due to collagen deficiency. Studies have shown that collagen can help to treat dry, brittle hair by helping maintain the moisture levels of the hair.  If you’re lacking collagen in your diet, it may be helpful to add a collagen supplement such as HAIRFINITY Damage Defense Collagen Booster.

2. Get Your Amino Acids – Proteins are made up of amino acids that give the hair its strength.  You’re your hair lacks amino acids, it is more susceptible to breakage.  So, adding hair strengthening amino acids like HAIRFINITY Volume Builder Amino Acid Booster to your diet will help your hair withstand everyday styling without becoming damaged.

  • Arginine is one of the most important amino acids for hair growth. It produces nitric oxide, a compound which helps improve blood circulation and the supply of nutrients to the hair follicles. This can help improve the very first stages of hair growth. Dietary sources of Arginine include coconut, sunflower seeds, and fish.
  • Lysine help reduce the enzyme shown be a prominent factor in male and female pattern baldness. It can also improve iron absorption to prevent iron deficiency which has been linked to hair loss and excessive hair shedding.
  • Cystine is an amino acid that has been shown to stimulate hair regrowth and fight hair loss while providing strength to the hair shaft.  Up to 14% of your hair is made up of this amino acid. Dietary sources of Cystine include chicken, broccoli and milk.

3. Use Anti-Breakage Hair Care – Hair that is weak is more susceptible to breakage.  Increasing the strength of your hair will help protect it from damage. Its obvious that collagen and amino acids can help your hair grow stronger from the inside, but it is also important to strengthen your hair rom the outside using products formulated to guard against breakage.  Using a treatment such as the HAIRFINITY Strengthening Amino Masque can help your hair grow longer by infusing it with amino acids and preventing breakage from happening.

HAIRFINITY Advanced Hair Care products are proven reduce breakage by up to 95% in the first use when tested on chemically processed hair heat treated to 450 degrees.

A Cure For Dry Hair – It Starts on the Inside

If you’re suffering from dry hair and can’t seem to find a solution, it might be because you are starting in the wrong place.  While the products you use on your hair can help hydrate it, it’s very important to hydrate your hair from the inside.

Hydrating Your Hair from the Inside:

  • Essential Fatty Acids – Eating foods that contain essential fatty acids (EFA’s) can help combat dryness and brittleness. EFA’s are found in fish such as sardines, tuna, and salmon.  Also, you can get a good dose of EFA’s by eating nuts, olives, avocados and flaxseed.  HAIRFINITY Intense Shine EFA Booster gives you hair a boost of Omega 6, an essential fatty acid for shinier, softer-looking hair.*
  • Water – While everyone knows that drinking water is important for overall health, you may not know that dehydration can lead to dry, brittle hair.  Healthy hydrated hair requires drinking about 6 to 8 cups of water each day. Not drinking enough water will cause your hair and skin to become dry.
  • Silica – this mineral found in foods such as asparagus and cucumbers can help improve your hair’s strength and shine.  Healthy hair is naturally more hydrated.  So, incorporating this mineral in your diet can help ease dryness. One source of silica is Horsetail Extract, which is an ingredient in HAIRFINITY Healthy Hair Vitamins.
  • Protein – Your hair is made of keratin protein so it only makes sense that you need to include an adequate amount of protein in your diet for healthy hair.  Hair that lacks the vital amino acids that come from protein is weak, brittle, and dry.  While meat is the most common source of protein, foods such as eggs and beans also provide your hair with this essential nutrient.  You can also use a supplement such as HAIRFINITY Volume Builder Amino Acid Booster to make sure your hair is getting these vital amino acids.
  • Vitamins  –  Healthy hydrated hair needs to be properly nourished from the inside.  Nutrients such as Vitamin A, B-vitamins, and Vitamin C, Folic Acid, and MSM are also very important for hair.  You can find these hair specific nutrients fruits, grains, and green, leafy vegetables as well as hair vitamins such as HAIRFINITY Healthy Hair Vitamins.

Hydrating Your Hair from the Outside:

  • Avoid the “Awful 8” Ingredients: Silicones, sulfates, mineral oils/petroleum, parabens, phthalates, PEG, propylene glycol, chlorine and formaldehyde. While these harsh ingredients are found in many popular hair products, they can dry your hair out and cause breakage. HAIRFINITY Hair Care Products contain only pure, gentle ingredients that work with your hair, not against it. That means our formulas never contain what we call “The Awful 8.”
  • Keep it Cool – Avoid washing your hair with hot water as it can strip your hair of its natural oils and moisture, causing it to become dull and dry.
  • Ditch the Damage. One of the major causes of dry hair is damage to the protective outer layer. Once this layer is damaged, it allows moisture to escape and your hair to dry out. The main culprits are chemical treatments (ie color, perms, and relaxers) and heat treatments (ie blow drying and straightening). Try out some heat-free styles, try rollers instead of the curling iron. Use a thermal product like HAIRFINITY Revitalizing Leave In Conditoner that protects your hair from heat up to 450 degrees when you do heat style your hair.
  • Oil it Up. When we think of oil, we think of moisture.  However, oil is best used to seal in moisture and protect your hair from the elements.  While your scalp naturally produces oil, it is sometimes not enough for what we put our hair through daily. Try using a natural product like HAIRFINITY Nourishing Botanical Oil which increases shine and elasticity, and infuses your hair with moisture while reducing breakage up to 95%. If you are following all of the steps above, then your hair should be properly hydrated and using an oil to seal it will help keep it that way. Remember – avoid popular “silicone” based oils as they will only dry your hair out more.

Is Stress Causing Your Hair Loss?

Stress is known to cause several hair problems from heart disease to obesity.  But did you know that stress can also cause you to lose hair? If you have recently noticed an abnormal amount of hair loss, it could be due to a stressful situation that you have went through recently or even months ago. Hair loss due to stress usually occurs 1 to 3 months after a very stressful event, such as a death in the family, divorce, or even financial worry. This type of hair loss can also be caused by illness, poor diet, or hormonal changes (i.e. menopause, recently giving birth, or starting/stopping birth control pills). The good news is that you can prevent stress induced hair loss before it happens and help reduce it if you are currently experiencing it. To keep stress from wreaking havoc on your hair, try adding the HAIRFINITY Detox & De-Stress Antioxidant Booster to your supplement regimen.  This targeted supplement supports your scalp’s stress reduction abilities with an antioxidant cocktail of curcumin, zinc and grape seed extract. Soothe and protect your scalp, so your hair can grow and thrive, stress-free.*

There are three types of hair loss that are associated with high stress levels:

  • Telogen effluvium. Stress causes large numbers of your hair follicles to go into the resting phase. After a few months, the affected hairs may suddenly fall out causing reason for alarm (and possibly even more stress)
  • Alopecia areata.While a variety of things can cause alopecia areata, it is also possibly linked to severe stress. Hair loss from alopecia areata is caused by the body’s immune system attacks the hair follicles
  • Trichotillomania creates an irresistible urge to pull out hair from your scalp, eyebrows or other areas of your body. This hair pulling may be a way of dealing with stress, loneliness, boredom or frustration.

How to Prevent Stress:

  1. Get enough sleep. Lack of sleep can cause stress, especially if the issue persists for a long period of time.  You should try to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.  Not getting enough sleep can affect your diet and mood, which can in tern lead to more stress and eventually hair loss.  If you have trouble getting to sleep, it may be because of too much stimulation before bedtime.  The light from the TV or phone can cause stimulation that will prevent you from falling to sleep easily.  So, try a dark room or read a book to fall asleep quickly.
  2. Follow a healthy diet. Healthy foods provide your body with the energy it needs to deal with daily stress.  When you don’t follow a healthy diet, it leaves your body and hair susceptible to stress related problems.  A nutritious diet can also help you grow stronger hair which will also help keep it from falling out.  To make your diet “hair healthy,” eat at least 3 well balanced meals per day and avoid processed and sugary foods.  Indulge in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats such as nuts and avocados. Also, try adding a healthy hair supplement with nutrients specific for your precious locks such as B-vitamins, MSM, and more.  Omega-3 fatty acids are also beneficial, as they can help to improve the health of the scalp. Also, adding a targeted supplement such as the HAIRFINITY De-Stress & Detox Antioxidant Booster will help give your hair a “boost” of antioxidant ingredients, creating optimal conditions for hair growth.
  3. Exercise more. Not only can exercise help improve your overall health, it can also help alleviate emotional stress due to the endorphins your body releases.  These endorphins, also called “happy hormones” help your feel more calm and relaxed. Exercise doesn’t mean having to go to the gym or get a trainer.  Dancing, jumping jacks, swimming, or even a brisk walk can help reduce your stress levels.

How to Get Stress In Check:

  1. Focus on the moment.We spend so much time thinking about the future and the past.  We usually worry about what to do next or feel regret about something we have already done.  To help reduce stress, try focusing on what you are doing right this instant.  For example if you are outside, concentrate on how the wind feels against your skin.  Or if you’re eating, focus on the taste and sensation of your food.
  2. Laugh Out Loud While your current situation may not seem like a laughing matter, research shows that laughing can help lower your stress levels and improve your mood by reducing stress hormones and boosting endorphins. So, find something to laugh about whether it is your favorite funny movie or remembering something that made you LOL. It will help you feel better and possibly save your hair.
  3. Listen to Music – It has been shown that listening to soothing music and sounds can help reduce anxiety, slow your heart rate, and even lower your blood pressure. Try listening to spa like music or sounds such as ocean waves or rain. Focus on the scenery associated with the sound while you are listening to it.

Protect Your Hair with Antioxidants

Unfortunately, stress can’t always be avoided.  However, you can make sure your hair is protected. HAIRFINITY Detox & De-Stress Antioxidant Booster helps protect your hair from stress with a powerful combination of antioxidants.

  • Curcumin (Turmeric) is a plant from the ginger family that acts as a powerful antioxidant,  defending against free radicals and oxidation.*
  • Piperine (Black Pepper)increases the absorption of curcumin, optimizing its antioxidant properties.*
  • Zinc Gluconatesoothes  and supports the body’s immune system by reducing cellular breakdown.*
  • Grapeseed Extractdefends your scalp and hair from oxidation caused by free radicals.*
  • Vitamin E protects against free radicals with its antioxidant powers.*

Why It’s Necessary to Protect Your Hair from Air Pollution

The severity of damage caused by pollution cannot be underestimated as it can really harm your tresses. Researches have shown that pollution and other environmental irritants pose a huge threat on your skin but people haven’t realize yet how damaging can these pollutants be for your scalp and hair. Your skin and hair are more exposed to pollution but skin often has that advantage of being covered and protected by certain creams, lotions and other treatments. Your hair on the other hand, is most exposed. But the good news is there are certain ways you can control and minimize this damage to your locks.

Smoke, dust, gaseous pollutants and other grime get settled on the scalp and hair, causing irritation and harm. These dirt residues can contribute in excessive dryness, roughness and hair breakage. An itchy and flaky scalp is often the case as well that leads to hair loss. People living in highly polluted areas are at major risk as these damaging aggressors can attack your hair anytime you’re outdoors.

Expert dermatologists at Hairfinity have some really helpful suggestions for controlling hair damage due to pollution. Let’ have a look.

Try Anti-Pollution or Deep Cleansing Hair Care
It is recommended to change your hair care products and start using anti-pollution or deep cleansing shampoos and conditioners. Such products help cleansing all the unwanted dirt residues from your scalp and hair. Hairfinity Gentle Cleanse Shampoo is one of the most effective hair care product when it comes to cleansing and damage control.

Avoid Styling Products
Hair styling products like gels, thickening creams and mousses attract more pollutants to the hair. Try minimizing usage of such products especially if you live in a polluted area and you’re using such products on a daily basis.

Minimize Shampooing
It might seem strange to most of you because generally washing can take away dirt from your hair but this is a bit more complicated to understand. Exposure to pollution can dry out your locks and shampooing on a daily basis can further contribute in drying your hair by excreting all the essential oils and moisture. It is recommended to go without shampooing as long as you can. Shampooing your strands three times a week is more than enough.

Brush and Style your Hair with Care
Pollution damages your hair and makes them brittle and more prone to breakage. Due to this, you find more hair stuck in your brush. Therefore, it is recommended to treat your hair gently when you brush and style them. Heating instruments exacerbate the situation so it advised to avoid their usage as much as possible.

Hydration is the Key
When it comes to the health of your overall body, hydration is essential. Same goes for the health of your mane as well. Environmental pollutants and irritants soak up all your hair moisture due to which it is necessary to give your scalp and hair a moisture treatment. Moisturizing mask is a good option. Hairfinity Balanced Moisture Conditioner is another effective formula for hydrating your hair.

How to Style & Prevent Thinning Hair

Thinning hair can be a huge problem for women who want to style their hair every day. Hair thinning is mostly experienced by women and it poses certain styling challenges for them.

Try Out New Styling Tweaks
Sometimes all you need is a little break from your daily routine and it can solve all your problems in no time. First of all, avoid too tight ponytails and limit braids and extensions. Most of us don’t realize that tight hairstyles can put a great stress on hair follicles and result in hair thinning and even hair loss. According to hair stylists, if you have thin hair, try cutting bangs; make them start much closer to the crown as it will provide fullness in the front. Blow drying in the direction your locks usually fall can also help in adding height and volume to the hair. Furthermore, make your part a bit messy to conceal the easily visible scalp.

Try New Products
If you haven’t tried them yet, it’s time to use hair building and hair volumizing sprays while being careful to not get an overdose. They work well if you are experiencing a mild thinning. Secondly, also try hair strengthening and thickening shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in conditioners like Hairfinity Revitalizing Leave-in Conditioner. It’s quite effective in nourishing and thickening your strands.

Get Required Nutrients
Nutritional deficiencies play a vital role in hair thinning and hair loss. Get a proper nutritional makeover by eating essential vitamins, proteins and iron-rich foods. Vitamin B, D and iron deficiencies are the worst ones especially when it comes to hair thinning problems. So, for the best way to prevent hair-thinning issues, it is recommended to eat a balanced diet with lots of whole grains, lentils, lean meat, eggs, fruits and vegetables. These nutrients are the building blocks for hair growth and therefore, are very essential for us. You can also get Hairfinity Healthy Hair Vitamins, which are effective in providing all the required nutrients.

Visit a Hair Expert
There are a number of trichology centers and online hair consultation systems available for people suffering from hair loss or thinning hair. Hairfinity also offers an online hair health consultation program and a microscopic hair analysis to identify the root cause of your hair problems. After the problems are identified, a customized solution to every hair loss or hair thinning problem is provided.

How to Prevent Hair Breakage?

Working out has become one of the most essential activities in our daily routine but have you ever wondered how excessive sweating can damage your hair? It for sure has some quite harmful effects on our hair and scalp health. There are many other such activities and habits we commonly have that are unhealthy for our hair. Therefore, it is important to first know what common mistakes we make and what kind of preventive measures we can take to control or at least lessen the harm. Hairfinity experts want to highlight some very common hair damaging habits and provide some solutions to prevent hair breakage.

We often give our hair a quick towel dry, we roughly pull our hair into and out of a ponytail and most of the time we snuggle into our pillows. We make such mistakes without realizing how disastrous these habits can be for our healthy mane. All these rough movements actually create friction which in turn severely damage our hair. We make these mistakes on an almost regular basis, which means our hair suffers over time. Your strands get all tangly and rough, and split ends are formed. This is because we don’t realize how fragile our strands are. They should be treated as gently as we treat our dry-clean-only blouses. There is a sheer need of a routine shift to prevent hair damage.

It is also important to understand how this friction actually starts. Every hair strand is comprised of two main layers, an outer layer called the cuticle and an inner layer called the cortex. The cuticle is basically made up of small scales, which is covered with a lipid protection layer. Due to friction, this layer gets damaged, pulling the scales off the strands and leaving holes in the cuticle. Because of this, the cortex becomes exposed. The cortex is made up of bundles of keratin fibers. When these bundles are roughly treated, you get split ends in turn. Any further friction causes hair breakage.

When it comes to preventing damage, there are a few vital changes you can make in your daily routine. When your hair gets wet, it stretches up to 30 percent, making it more vulnerable to breakage. Instead of a rough and aggressive towel rub, wrap the towel up around the hair, wait for a while and let it absorb the excessive moisture. Your detangling tool is also an important factor because it can ruin your hair more than you can imagine. Always go for a wide-tooth comb or brush with flexible bristles. While combing, go easy on your ends because they are the oldest and weakest part of your hair.

After a workout, if you wash your strands or at least rinse it, you make a smarter move because there are people who start blow-drying their sweaty hair instead of shampooing it. When you directly blow dry your after-workout-strands, the sweat salts combined with the drying heat to make your strands and follicles super dehydrated. If you want to avoid shampooing daily, Hairfinity experts recommend dabbing the sweat using a towel and lightly misting your locks with water. It will dilute the sweat.

These are some minor changes that we can easily incorporate into our daily routines to prevent hair damage as much as we possibly can.

Foods that Help Hair Grow

Hair is one of the most prominent features of our overall personality because we are always very concerned about its health and growth. Whether it’s a desire to look good or desperation for a new haircut, we try to make our locks look better and healthier by applying every little trick or suggestion we come to know about. Among all those beauty tips and hair care methodologies, we often forget that the stuff we eat can create some significant difference when it comes to hair health and growth.

Have you ever wondered how a strategically designed diet can yield your desired results? If not, it is now time to note down every little thing you need to add in your daily diet to make your hair much healthier and prettier. Here is a list of foods that are quite effective in improving hair growth. Recommended by professional dermatologists and hair experts at Hairfinity, these dietary changes can have a significant effect on your hair and can make it grow faster. Foods that should be incorporated in your diet are:

Salmon: This is one of the best sources of protein and Vitamin D. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids that are really effective in promoting healthy hair growth. It also helps keep your scalp in good health.

Yellow peppers: We often hear of oranges as the raw source of Vitamin C but research has shown that yellow peppers contain almost five and a half times more Vitamin C than oranges. This is a very good piece of information because your hair needs a large amount of Vitamin C since Vitamin C is basically an antioxidant that helps strengthen your hair follicles and it also help prevent breakage.

Eggs: Biotin, which can be obtained through eggs, is very essential for hair growth. Eggs contain omega-3 fatty acids as well. The egg yolk is actually necessary because eating excessive egg whites can block biotin absorption in the body and can cause depletion of this essential nutrient.

Oysters: Oysters are loaded with an important nutrient named zinc. Zinc is vital for hair growth. Its deficiency can cause hair loss and can be responsible for poor scalp conditions.

Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are also very good for healthy hair growth as they contain beta carotene, which promotes faster growth while maintaining scalp health. Beta carotene is basically a precursor of Vitamin A. Speaking of Vitamin A, it is recommended to avoid intake of excessive amounts of this vitamin as it can get toxic.

Sunflower Seeds: These seeds contain abundant amounts of Vitamin E that help enhance blood circulation to the scalp, which in turn promotes faster and healthier hair growth.

Almonds: Almonds contain a high percentage of biotin, which can help your hair get thicker and healthier within a month or two, if taken daily.

Avocados: Avocados are rich in essential fatty acids and are known as a beauty secret. They can be applied directly to the scalp as they are good at producing elastin and stimulating collagen on the scalp.

These are some really effective foods that you can add into your daily diet to experience significant results. An improved lifestyle and eating patterns can give you the prettier and healthier set of locks you always desired. Hairfinity Healthy Hair Vitamins can be a great addition to your healthy diet routine as they help you get all the essential nutrients required for healthy and faster hair growth.

Can Split Ends Be Repaired?

At some point or another, we have all been plagued with the dread of unsightly split ends. Whether or not we choose to equip ourselves with the knowledge of how to deal with them are solely up to us. It is perfectly natural to question whether to chop off the split ends or attempt to repair the damage. Ideally, repairing or mending those split ends would prevent departing with them. But really, are split ends repairable?

Essentially, a split end occurs when the protective layer of the strands have been damaged and the structure of the hair begins to split apart. When the cuticle of the hair is damaged, the ends split and eventually snap off, resulting in the little pieces you see in the bathroom sink. It is important to be aware that when your split ends are not addressed, the damage travels up the hair shaft, encompassing more hair. So, in essence, more hair will eventually have to be cut off. The damage itself results from several factors. For starters, daily wear and tear can cause damage to the hair’s shaft. When the hair is handled and styled using products and tools that tear away the protective layer, it can lead to major splitting of the ends. Certain tools such as brushes and small tooth combs can do this for sure. Not properly handling hair can lead to ends fraying and being destroyed as well. Other causes of damaged ends are heat styling, chemical processing such as dying, perming or relaxing, and even some hair care products.

Let’s be honest, it is better to avoid damaged ends altogether by taking measures to ensure good hair health. But if you’re already dealing with damaged and split ends, you are taking the first step to healthier hair simply by educating yourself.  Here are some suggestions for helping to mend already split ends and avoiding further split ends:

Be kind to your hair. Caring for your strands require the most gentle treatment when handling or styling your hair. Use wide tooth combs as opposed to tearing through hair with combs with small teeth. Avoid brushing hair with harsh bristle brushes. Refrain from excessively brushing your hair. Paddle brushes or boar bristles are less harmful to the hair. When manipulating hair or styling wet strands, treat your hair with extra TLC.  Wet strands are more vulnerable and prone to damage. It is also important to eliminate the use of tight ponytail holders that can also damage the cuticles of your strands. Consider wearing loose buns that are just as cute as they are protective! Your strands will appreciate the extra care and your ends will be stronger as a result.

Protect Hair While You Sleep.  Wearing a mulberry silk bonnet at night ensures the safety of your strands as you snooze. A mulberry silk pillowcase can be used as well. You’d be surprised at how damaging a cotton pillowcase can be to your hair as you slumber. Unlike satin (polyester), mulberry silk contains 18 naturally occurring amino acids that promote strong, shiny, full hair. It also reduces dryness, frizz , and breakage by smoothing the hair cuticle, eliminating friction, and promoting moisture retention.

Avoid excessive heat.  Simply put, hair that is heat damaged leads to split ends. The way this works is simple, direct heat actually robs your strands of moisture. Once the hair is depleted of moisture, the cuticles are damaged and the next stage is split ends. Blow drying and curling irons used regularly without heat protection are the number one culprits here. Although avoiding heat as often as possible is suggested, the use of a good heat protectant that will properly coat the cuticle and protect the hair up to 450 degrees should be used each time direct heat is used. Air drying is always a better option. Even allowing your strands to air dry before using a blow dryer can cut down on the amount of direct heat required to achieve your look.

Ditch the harsh chemicals. Your hair strands are made up of layers, and products can actually strip them away. The use of milder products or those that contain natural ingredients can help to keep the cuticle stronger. To start, your products should be free of what we call “The Awful 8” ingredients: Silicone, Sulfates, Mineral Oil and Petroleum, Parabens, Phthalates, PEG, Propylene Glycol (PG), and Chlorine.  Chemical processing can lead to damage as well. Even cutting back on the frequency of processing or dying hair can aid in healthier hair overall and give hair a chance to repair. Using a good quality silicone-free leave-in conditioner that coats the cuticle can help to improve or mend the split ends.

Get regular hair trims. If you trim your ends regularly, you will notice less issues with damaged ends. Regular trimming is advised because ends are very vulnerable from rubbing against clothes. How often you actually need a trim may vary for each individual, however the standard recommendation is every 6-8 weeks.

You can mend the ends! Hairfinity Revitlizling Leave-In Conditioner improves the strength and health of each individual strand. Scientific tests on processed hair exposed to excessive heat and brushing proved that this leave in will improve up to 92% of split ends and protect hair from heat up to 450 degrees with just one use! Take a look at the results (under a microscope) of split end repair after just 1 use of the Hairfinity Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner.
