Winter hair care: tips against dryness, split ends and frizz
The appearance of split ends is due to “the reduction of the cuticle, which is responsible for protecting the inside of the hair. When this layer is minimized, the hair loses protection against external agents and there is exposed the bark of the hair that contains fibrils that will be cracking and that look like the flowered tips, ”explains Martín Monthelier, technician of Alfaparf Alta Moda.

Then, we will have to think of a custom plan. The fundamental clarification: “This will not be overnight. We will have to change some habits and incorporate products into the routine ”, clarifies Diego Impagliazzo, stylist of Tresemmé Argentina.

Keep it in its right measure

“A trimming of tips every month and a half will be the best way to maintain the healthy appearance of hair. If this step is overlooked, it will be more difficult to end the flowered tips, as these will continue their expansion process, ”explains Acuña.

“You also have to avoid the paraded or razor-shaped cuts, which take the hair longitudinally, since with this procedure they open and increase the problem.”

Custom products

“If the tips are already open, a repair treatment should be done. These provide proteins to strengthen the structure of the hair that was previously damaged. To prevent, however, nutritional therapies are recommended, which keep the hair cuticles attached, ”Monthelier distinguishes.

The tips are the oldest hair part of the hair and with more accumulation of chemicals.

Care from the inside

“Sometimes, split ends have to do with a deficit of vitamins, minerals, proteins or fatty acids. When these nutrients are lacking, the body rationalizes them and uses them for the primary functions. They can also be related to a lack of hydration. Therefore, it is important to drink at least six glasses per day, ”advises Impagliazzo.

Fair tincture

“Changing the hair color renews the image. But, in order not to damage the hair, it is important that the products we use are of good quality and must be applied by a trained professional. Worn out or balayages are another option, because they do not need constant care, ”explains Nacho Acosta, spokesperson for L’Oréal Professionnel.

Intense brushing chau

Instead, “it is convenient to use a wide tooth comb. This will help prevent the tips from opening, ”suggests Acosta.

Restricted Dryer

“When the hair seems damaged, it is convenient to give it a break or use a dryer with cold air,” says Impagliazzo. In addition, before using it, apply a thermoprotective product.
