For both women and men, showing off healthy hair is very important.
The split ends of the hair are generated when it weakens and becomes fragile and some of the causes of this affectation are: dyeing the hair, applying treatments with chemicals, strong treatments, such as hot curling irons, hair straighteners.
For this reason, there are natural hair masks that can help close the ends, as it provides moisture.
The first, according to E! Entertainment Television, is avocado, olive oil, and egg white. The first thing you should do is crush the avocado in a bowl and then mix it with the oil and egg white until you get a homogeneous paste. Next, apply the mask from means to ends and let it act for 45 minutes or an hour. Finally, rinse with warm water, which does not exceed 36 ºC.
The second mask is papaya with yogurt. You need papaya and half a cup of unsweetened yogurt. Then crush the papaya until it is like a puree and then add the yogurt and mix until you get a homogeneous paste. Subsequently, apply it to the hair from means to ends and leave on for 45 minutes or an hour and remove with warm water.
Another mask that will help with split ends is beer and you should apply it to your hair with an atomizer and leave it on for 45 minutes. Finally, wash with warm water.
For its part, it is key to know that when you wash your hair you should never rub wet hair, since it is much more sensitive and prone to breakage, in addition, the cuticle opens and will curly. The ideal is to use a microfiber towel, and wrap the hair so that it absorbs moisture.
It is also important that you apply masks to hydrate and rebuild it. However, before doing so, it is important that you are clear if your hair is dry or oily so that you can know which mask to apply. If you don’t know, you can consult an expert.
On the same line, another recommendation to have healthy hair is to brush it every night “between 10 and 20 passes, depending on the thickness of the hair,” according to Philip B, a hair expert in Hollywood, who is quoted by Vogue. This helps to exfoliate the scalp, eliminate traces of products, stimulate blood circulation and, therefore, promote hair growth and shine.
Another trick that helps maintain the health of the hair, is to brush it also before washing it. This method helps that it does not get tangled when it is wet, knots are undone that could make it difficult to penetrate the shampoo and also facilitate the subsequent detangling, taking into account that when the hair is wet it presents greater weakness and, with it, greater chances of it breaking.
Also, it is important to note that the scalp must be washed and kept clean because it is the base of the hair, on which it will grow healthy and strong. A dirty scalp can promote drooping, loss of density, and volume.
There are also different vitamins that help with hair care such as thiamine or vitamin B1, Vitamin B2 or riboflavin, Vitamin B3 or niacin, Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid, Vitamin B6 or also known as Pyridoxine, Vitamin B7 or Biotin, Vitamin B9 or folic acid or B12 or Cobalamin.

Another recommendation made by the Dove brand is hydration with liquids because the body requires constant hydration and the permanent consumption of water during the day also benefits the hair. Another recommendation is to perform hair massages with some frequency on the scalp to activate blood circulation in this area.
Finally, experts recommend avoiding strong treatments, such as hot curling irons, hair straighteners, as these devices dehydrate the hair, thin it.
