#4 Q&A-How to get rid of split ends without having a hair cut?

Therese asked: “Any info on how to get rid of split ends without actually having a hair cut?

Answer: First off, let’s talk about a few  causes of split ends.

  1. Split ends are more common among women who have long hair. (but you don’t have to have long hair to get them; trust me! 😉 )
  2. Split ends occur when hair follicles become dry, brittle, and lose their protective outer layer.
  3.  Roughly brushing your hair, especially when you have big knots will cause breakage, and aka. split ends.
  4. Don’t rub a towel over your hair to dry it.

A couple of things you can do to counteract split ends:

  1.  Brush you hair as gently as possible at all times; if you have a really bad knot it might be better to just wash your hair altogether and add plenty of conditioner to the knotted area.
  2. Use a wide-tooth comb in the shower whenever possible, and remember to always be gentle with your hair.
  3. Only brush your hair when you have to. There is actually no need to brush you hair each day when you get out of bed, sometimes just running your fingers through the worst of you hair is enough.

Now, to fix those nasty split ends without actually going to the hairdressers….

One thing I read about a while ago is (I don’t remember what they called it 😀 ) , but basically what you do when you see split ends in you hair (instead of picking at it ect.) you get a pair of hair cutting scissors, and just trim off the part that is split. But remember not to use any sort of regular scissors all they will damage your hair even further. I found a reasonably priced pair of trimming scissors at Woolworths. So I’m sure you could easily find some at your supermarket or grocery store ect.

Another things that can help repair your ends, is to apply some sort of hair oil on the ends of your hair every day. Argan oil is great, but coconut oil will also work well (but don’t use too much of that or your hair won’t absorb it all 😉 )

Sabrina also had a few tips to add:  Use leave in conditioner when brushing out your hair because it adds a little bit more protection for your hair.

Limit heat styling and use hair masks and/or coconut oil (which Clare mentioned ;)) to strengthen your hair.

Also protect your hair while sleeping, so put it in a loose bun or braid it, to prevent breakage. I also read that protecting your hair from the sun helps. Like using a hat or spraying in a sunscreen leave in conditioner.

Back to Clare 😉 : All that said, if you have really long hair, getting a centimeter or two off the ends wouldn’t look much different, but would help your hair out a lot.

And there you go, I hope this post was helpful, leave a comment below on what you favourite hair care tips are!

Dutch fishtail braid

I apologize that this is a bit of a rushed post, I would have made a video to go with this one, but due to internet ect. I wasn’t able to.. Hopefully you like it!

I can’t begin to tell you all how much I love this braid, it just looks so awesome! I’m going to show you how to create a dutch fishtail braid, with my cousin modelling for me again. Now it can be a quite time consuming braid, but the end result is totally worth it in my opinion! 😉

You could also do this as a side braid, into a ponytail (I’ve done it a few times for sport) or you could completely braid it all the way down the side.

Items needed: brush, 1 hair tie, hairspray and bobby pins {if desired}.

Time:10-15 minutes

Skill level: Hard

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Pick up a section of hair at the front of the hair, and divide it into two halves.
  2. Take a small piece from the right section, cross it underneath and add it to the left section.
  3. Next, take a small piece from the left section, cross it underneath, adding it into the right section.
  4. Cross a section from the right underneath to the left and then pick up a section of hair, crossing it underneath and adding it into the previously crossed section. This  is the same as doing a dutch braid where hair is brought in. The two main sections is how the fishtail effect is created.
  5.  Next cross a section from the right underneath to the left, bring in a section, crossing it under as well.
  6.  Now repeat steps 2 -5 crossing sections underneath and bring in hair until all of the hair is incorporated into the braid.
  7.  When all the hair is brought in, finish in a regular reverse fishtail braid.
  8.  Tie off the end with a hair elastic.
  9. Now, gently loosen the edges of the braid by pulling the edges of the braid. This creates the big, full braid that looks awesome!
  10. Add hairspray if desired.

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Remember to leave a comment below, we love hearing from you all.  If you found the written instructions difficult to follow, leave a comment to let me know, and I will see about making a video tutorial for you! 😉

5 Minute Formal Updo

Hey everyone! Clare here today. I know quite a few of you are probably anticipating the 4 strand braid tutorial you all voted for, I’m hoping to have it up soon, possibly in my next tutorial, so keep an eye out for that! Now onto today’s hairstyle…

I actually just came up with this style the other day, and was surprised at how quick it is to do! I got it down in about 5 minutes, which is pretty good considering the formal look it has! For a fancier look you could definitely add some curls before styling, but it honestly will look great either way!

As always with new styles you’re trying out, especially fancy ones, make sure to give it a few trial runs before the actual day you want to wear it. Trying out a brand new hairstyle 10 minutes before you head out the door is not exactly the best idea… 😉

Items needed: 1-2 hair ties, a handful of bobby pins, (hairspray & spin-pins are optional)

Time:4-8 minutes (depending on your hair)

Skill level: Easy

Step-by-step instructions:

  1.  Begin with your hair down and parted to one side (you could do a middle part too, but I think side part’s look better for this style).
  2. Now section off a a bit of hair from the top of the part, to just behind the ear on either side..
  3. Put those out of the way for a second, and gather the remaining hair into a ponytail at the back of your head..
  4. Next, twist the hair in the ponytail up into a bun, use bobby pins to secure..
  5. Now take the hair from the right side of the head and slowly begin to twist the hair, starting at roots, (hopefully the video explains this better)…
  6. Once you have the twist done, lay it over the top of the bun and wrap the ends around to pin in place..
  7. Repeat steps 5-6 on the other side…
  8. Once you have the twists secured in place, go back and pin any of the bun to you liking, and gently pull on the crown to add more volume and lift..
  9. Add hairspray if desired..

And there you have this super simple, but elegant updo!

Let me know what you think in the comments (and I apologise for the lighting in the video.) I hope you all have a great rest of the week!
