Tuesday, November 11, 2008 | Tips & How-Tos

 Shutterstock_2283539 Whether from too many color treatments, too much curling or too long without a cut, split ends are a hair’s frazzled cry for help. While a trim may be the only true solution, Pür Minerals has tips and tricks to tame those wayward tresses before your next trip to the salon.

Comb Territory

If you comb your hair while it’s still wet, stroke gently with a wide-tooth comb. Now would also be a good time to work in a good leave-in conditioner or an alcohol-free styling spritz. For dry hair, use a soft bristle brush, again stroking gently. Never tug or pull at hair as this can aggravate splits.

Quick Fix PurBalm

Using a blow dryer and a soft bristle round or paddle brush, thoroughly dry hair, including split ends. Try to brush ends as straight as possible while blow drying to limit fly-aways. Once dry, apply a hydrating balm like

Pür Balm to tips and work though to mend splits and control stray ends. Loaded with nourishing shea butter, vitamin E and essential oils, this quick fix balm provides the pür-fect dose of hair-taming hydration.
