Did you know that there were this many kinds of split ends? Pretty nasty, right? Well, I can attest to the validity of this chart. Because, about 2 1/2 years ago, I saw just about every split end on it (except the white spots) in my own head of hair. It was bad y’all. I mean, baaaaaddddd! That’s when I took to carrying around purse scissors … so that I could take split ends to task at a moment’s notice, any time, any place (seriously, I was out of control)!

2011 NYC CurlyNikki Meet-Up: Told ya!

But now the split ends are few and far between and have been for quite a while. Let’s put it out there. I have fine strands. So,  I’ll probably always get split ends no matter how protective I am of my hair/ends (unlike my compatriots with strong, thick-strands ).

How to Ensure Healthy Ends- Natural Hair Care


by Antoinette and Shanti of Around The Way Curls

We all face dry ends from time to time. Dry ends are just a symptom of a habit (or lack thereof) that needs to be modified. As the cooler weather quickly advances, I wanted to provide some tips to bringing some moisture back to your strands. You can follow one or follow the whole sha-bang to ensure optimum results.

1. Make Sure that Your Moisturizing Ritual is Solid.
If you do not know the difference between a sealant and a moisturizer than your hair's ends probably reflect your ignorance! A moisturizer is water or a water based product (leave in conditioner). You can identify a moisturizing product by reading the ingredients on the product label.

A moisturizer will have aqua or water listed as the first ingredient. A sealant is a natural oil such as olive, jojoba, shea butter etc or (aloe vera juice/gel for finer hair that is weighed down by oil). A moisturizer is applied first and the sealant is applied second. If you are not following this process in your hair ritual than you probably should implement it to ensure healthier more moisturized hair strands.
