Either way, use this time to take a break from straightening, curling and blowdrying your hair. Even just a day off (although it’s great if you can take two) can drastically alter the damage done to your hair by various heating elements.

If the damage is already done, then it’s time to say sorry. We love Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner for all of our clients, but especially for those who tend to style their hair more often.how to prevent split ends

Lay it on thick

We LOVE hair masks, and you will too once you see the results! Silky hair and thick full ends will transform your look and brighten up those tired ends. Grab our Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Mask (it’s intense), hop in a bubble bath, apply it liberally to your hair, and then let it soak in. You’ll see results immediately!

Take it easy

When your hair is wet, it’s super susceptible to breakage. That’s why our stylist, Miko, recommends that you use a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair after the shower. As you’re combing through it, be gentle and take your time. What might seem like an innocent tangle could actually be wreaking havoc on the ends of your hair.

Shampoo & Condition 101

The way you shampoo and condition your hair can actually make a huge difference when it comes to split ends. For example, are you applying your shampoo directly to your scalp, or are you applying it on the ends of your hair? What about your conditioner? Most of us have a tendency to just throw some shampoo on our head, scrub, and then slap some conditioner on it. In all actuality, shampoo should be applied to the scalp, and conditioner should be applied to the ends! This will stop your scalp from looking greasy and your ends from getting dried out, making them more prone to breakage.
