I’m rather vain about my hair so I always turn to home hair treatments for split ends – not only to save some cash, but also because I don’t want my stylist to stand there tut-tutting over the status of my hair. No thanks! If you want to take care of your lovely locks yourself as well, just try some of these awesome home hair treatments for split ends that work 100%!
1. Egg Shampoos
One home hair treatment for split ends is a simple egg shampoo. For this treatment, all you need is an ounce of rosemary, preferably fresh, a pint of hot water, and one egg. What you want to do is steep your rosemary in the hot water for about 20 minutes, then let it cool. Once it’s cooled down, beat your egg into it, then massage the mix into your hair and rinse, just as you would with a regular shampoo.
2. Papaya Hair Pack
For this pack, obviously, you need a papaya, a very ripe one. You’ll only be using half of it, so pick one that’s sizable enough for your hair. For instance, if your hair is really long or really thick, you’ll need a larger fruit. Once it’s halved, get rid of the skin and the seeds, then blend it until it’s pulpy. At that point, add in half a cup of plain yogurt and mix again. That’s all you need to do! Once it’s mixed, massage it into your hair, parting it carefully, and let it stay on for 30 minutes or so, then rinse it out.
3. Castor Oil Conditioning
Castor oil is extremely helpful in a number of ways, but when you use it in a home hair treatment for split ends, at least you don’t have to drink the vile stuff! Rather, just mix an equal amount of castor oil, mustard oil, and olive oil – again, the amount you mix depends on the length and thickness of your hair. All you have to do is apply the mix into your hair, then wrap it up in a towel and let it set for thirty minutes. You definitely want to shampoo when you wash it out!
4. Cream Tonic
You do this treatment after you’ve shampooed, at which point you mix a tablespoon of heavy cream into half a cup of milk. Beat it thoroughly, then massage it into your hair, especially the ends. You only need to leave it for about 15 minutes, and then rinse it out!
5. The Honey Trick
Honey is great as a home hair treatment for split ends, especially when you mix it with curd. All you need is a half cup of curd and a tablespoon of money, which you mix together well. Massage it into your hair, paying particular attention to the ends, and let it remain there for 20 minutes. When you rinse, just use water. This method will give your hair a gorgeous sheen!
6. Beer Rinse
Beer is actually really good for your hair, and this particular treatment is simplicity itself! All you need to do is massage some beer into your hair, then give it time to soak in thoroughly. After that, simply rinse! The only bad thing is the lingering scent of beer, but hey, that’s what spritzes are for, right?
If you eat a lot of avocado, you may have noticed that your hair and skin gets extremely soft. The oil in avocado makes it an ideal hair and skin treatment – but right now, we’re focusing on the former! All you have to do is mash up an avocado and, after getting your hair a bit damp, massage the fruit into your hair. Make sure you get your split ends coated. Let it set for anywhere between 15 minutes and half an hour, then rinse it out. You can add a tablespoon of olive oil for some extra sheen, if you like.
8. Olive Oil
Last but most definitely not least, olive oil makes an effective home hair treatment for split ends all by itself! All you do is warm enough olive oil to cover your hair, then massage it into those pretty but dry tresses. Wrap your hair in a towel or cover it with a shower cap, and find something to do for half an hour – then shampoo!
