How to Repair Split Ends

Wind, sun, pollution, and hair care products can damage the hair often resulting in hair best hidden under a hat. Top those off with blow-drying,straightening irons, and hot curlers and the hair can really take a beating. Luckily, treating split ends at home can be both effective and budget friendly. There are hair care products on the market that have a proven record for restoring split ends and giving the hair a healthy shine. People can also use products found in the home to repair and treat split ends. Whatever method people choose, finding the products or supplies needed, at a traditional store or online at a site like eBay, can make fixing those ends easy and fast.

Hair Care Products to Repair Split Ends

Shoppers have a variety of choices of products that help repair split ends including shampoos, conditioners, and specialised treatment products.


Consider changing shampoo to a natural one without additives. Look for alcohol free shampoos to prevent dryness, which contributes to split ends. When shampooing, be sure to massage it gently into the hair and scalp using warm, not hot, water. Rinse thoroughly to remove all residue, and then use a conditioner.


Matching the conditioner to the shampoo is a good idea since hair care product manufacturers develop the products to work together. Squeeze excess water from clean, freshly washed hair and apply the conditioner. Gently massage the product into the hair all the way to the scalp. Leave it on the hair as per the directions and then rinse out with warm water. Use a deep hair conditioner twice a week after shampooing for additional conditioning.

Split End Treatment Products

Shoppers can find many treatments designed specifically for split ends. These products seal the split ends but cannot completely cure them. However, combined with regular trimming, they can assist in preventing future damage and help promote hair health .

Leave-In Conditioners

There are several types of leave-in conditioner. Check the container to be sure the conditioner is for use with specific hair types such as oily, dry, damaged, or hair colour treated.

Oil Treatments

Curly hair with split ends benefits from treatments with light oils, such as sweet almond oil, Jojoba, Macadamia, and argan oil. Do not use olive oil, as it is too heavy. Simply rub a few droplets of oil between the fingertips and softly massage the oil into the hair ends

Homemade Remedies for Treating Split Ends

Shoppers have many options for homemade split end treatments as well, such as mayonnaise and white vinegar.


Heat up one half cup of mayonnaise until it becomes an oily slurry and apply to dry, unwashed hair. Cover hair with a plastic bag and leave on for at least 15 minutes. Rinse and shampoo thoroughly.

White Vinegar

Vinegar works as a conditioner and can restore split ends, enhance cleanliness, and increase shine. Just add 5 mlvinegar to hair while rinsing. Keep a travel-size plastic bottle of vinegar in the shower for this purpose.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Add 225 ml apple cider vinegar to a large bowl of water and drape hair into it. In addition, shoppers can make a conditioner that controls split ends by mixing 1 l of water and 225 ml of vinegar. Apply the conditioner after rinsing out the shampoo, and let it stay on the hair for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly with warm water.

Avoiding Future Split Ends

To avoid future split ends, use a wide tooth comb instead of a brush after washing. In addition, when brushing dry hair use a vented brush with rubber tips on the ends of the bristles. Begin brushing at the ends of the hair instead of the top and work the brush or comb up the hair gently doing one section at at time. This prevents pulling of tangles, which can cause split ends.

How to Buy Products to Repair Split Ends on eBay

To purchase hair care products on eBay go to any page of the site and use the Search box to find what you need. Type in keywords that best describe the item such as "split end treatment" or " chemical free shampoo". If the search results are too broad, try selecting a category to narrow them. Find the product that most suits your hair type and read the product information before making a buying decision.

Shoppers have many options for treating split ends, including special shampoo and conditioning products. To help prevent future split ends, remember to use a vented brush and avoid heated hair tools like blow dryers as they dry out the hair.
