Split and damaged hair ends are a real nightmare. Especially for dyed hair, this is almost a mandatory sentence. Very few women can boast of the absence of such a problem, even after prolonged dyeing.
Adding in the use of hair dryers, hair straighteners, curling irons and styling products, the picture becomes even more ominous for the ends of the hair.
How to help her in a natural way? Here are some effective masks against split ends:
Eggs are rich in protein and nutrients. The fatty acids in them are a real miracle for exhausted hair. They tighten and nourish the hair follicles, and the nourishing substances reach the tip of the hair.
Mix 1 egg yolk with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of honey. Make a smooth cream-like mixture. Apply to damp hair, but not too wet. Leave it on for about half an hour. Emphasize the edges when applying the mask.
Finally, rinse and wash with a mild non-aggressive shampoo.
Warm Fat Mask
Liquid fats contribute to the restoration of deeply damaged hair. When they are heated, their effect increases.
Suitable liquid fats are olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil, castor oil. All of them have moisturizing properties and nourish the hair all the way to the tip.

Apply to damp hair. Leave it on for about an hour. Then rinse and wash with a mild shampoo. Do the procedure 2 times a week for good results.
Avocado is also rich in he althy fats. They are one of the most important compounds for the he alth of the body, including hair. Avocado also contains vitamins A, D and E, which have exceptional benefits for hair. They make it soft, strong, shiny and most importantly, no split ends.

Leave it on for about 30 minutes. Then rinse and wash with not too hot water.
