Nobody likes pesky split ends. The best thing to do for split ends is to avoid getting them at all. Unfortunately that's not always realistic. If you've got a few split ends already, try a shampoo and/or conditioner that'll help to mend them and make your hair look instantly healthier.
L'Oréal Professionnel Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Shampoo
Recommended by Allure magazine, L'Oréal Professionnel Force Vector Reinforcing Anti-Breakage Shampoo temporarily heals split ends and helps to prevent future breakage. It works by using ceramides to fix dull, dry, split ends and protect it from future styling. The shampoo has a fruity, berry scent that leaves your hair smelling as great as it looks.
Pantene Nature Fusion Moisture Balance
Pantene Nature Fusion Moisture Balance is a favorite of InStyle magazine. The shampoo and conditioner were voted the magazine's best inexpensive shampoo/conditioner of 2010. The products are loaded with vitamins that work to hydrate and strengthen hair, protecting it from split ends. Use both products together to make hair stronger and leave it shiny, sleek and gorgeous.
Redken Extreme Conditioner
Redken Extreme Conditioner is another favorite of Allure magazine. The conditioner contains octadecanediol, which helps to repair split ends. It's also super conditioning and detangles hair, so combing it out is easier and you won't end up with more split ends. It also coats your hair in protein, leaving it stronger so those split ends stay at bay for longer.
It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product
It's a 10 Miracle Leave-In Product also comes with Allure magazine's stamp of approval. Not only does this leave-in conditioner repair dry hair and split ends, it also reduces frizz, detangles, prevents breakage, softens hair, and protects it from heat -- which can also cause split ends by the way. Just spritz a bit onto your hair and you're all set.
