How to End Split Ends – The Easiest, Most Effective Way of Stopping Split Ends

Put an end to split ends

If you’re trying to grow your hair longer but are struggling because of split ends, read this and follow the instructions.

This is the best way to prevent split ends.

  1. Get your hair trimmed at the hair dressers to remove existing split ends.
  2. Buy a pot of organic extra virgin coconut oil.
  3. Before bed, get a small amount of the coconut oil on your fingers/hands and rub it into your hair. Coat all of your hair in a thin layer of coconut oil. You don’t need to use loads, just enough to coat your hair.
  4. Leave the coconut oil in your hair overnight.
  5. In the morning wash your hair and scalp.

Repeat this process every day until you go to get your hair cut again.

When you get your hair cut your hairdresser will comment on how nice your hair is — guaranteed.

If you have VERY WEAK hair that damages very easily, apply a very small amount of coconut oil on to your hair after shampooing as well to prevent damage.

Never brush or comb your hair when it’s wet.

How does it work?

Hair consists of proteins. These proteins can be damaged and broken when combed, brushed or heat treated. They are especially susceptible to damage when wet. If they are broken some of the protein can be lost resulting in split-ends.

Coconut oil is able to penetrate the hair. Once it is absorbed it prevents hair protein from being lost from the hair.

A study on the effects of coconut oil on hair damage was published in 2003 and it showed that coconut oil prevented the hair from swelling when wet. When hair swells as a result of water absorption it is prone to damage because only some cells swell while others do not, which weakens the hair, causing protein loss.

  1. Hello and thank you for your beautiful blog,

    I have a personal question. I have noticed that as soon as I get horny thinking sexy thoughts or watching sexy movies my hair starts to fall down. The falling will be maximized if the sexy thoughts or movies lead to ejaculation. What do you propose? Should I give sex up for the rest of my life? Am I not capable of having a healthy sex life?

    Please, I’m in great need of your consultation.

    Thanks a lot,
    Sincerely yours,
    Mohammad

    1. Hi Mohammad,

      I’ve never heard of this before but I suspect it might be coincidence that you are noticing your hair loss during times when you are sexually excited.

      There is a link between ejaculation and hair loss — it’s thought that ejaculation causes an increase in the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Testosterone levels increase when a man is sexually excited and at climax some of the testosterone is converted into DHT. However I don’t believe this will effect your hair immediately — in fact the impact is more likely to take effect some months after the increase in DHT production.

      So I don’t think that the hair loss you’re noticing is occuring as a direct result of the sexy thoughts you are experiencing at that moment. However it’s possible that there is a link between regular ejaculation and hair loss.

    1. Coconut oil is available in supermarkets, health food shops and online. Be sure to buy pure cold pressed organic coconut oil.

  2. My hair is oily but my hair started falling heavily only the last two years. Many people told me it is because I am aging (40yrs). Some people advised me to wash my hair using an organic shampoo every day to remove the oil but others said that washing hair regularly is the cause for falling hair and loosing the natural oils that the scalp produce. I don’t know who is right and what to follow!
