Healthy Hair Tuesday – Sealing Your Ends!
It’s Healthy Hair Tip Tuesday!!!
The Importance of Sealing Your Ends
How do I seal my ends?
It’s very simple… Put a little of your favorite essential oil, Aloe Vera juice or hair butter in the palm of your hands, rub together, then slide the strands of your hair in between your hands (while holding your hands flat together). This allows the oil from your hands to rub onto your hair.
What does it mean to seal your ends?
When I first heard the phrase “seal your ends” I literally would go and put oil on the tips of my hair. At that time I really didn’t understand that the ends of my hair were much more than the tips of my hair; it’s actually from at least mid way down the shaft of your hair to the very ends. Because the ends of your hair are considered the oldest parts of your hair they need more attention. For most people the ends of the hair tend to be more thirsty, less likely to hold onto moisture and most prone to splitting or breakage.
Should everyone seal their ends & what are the benefits?
No matter your ethnicity, texture, length, or if your hair is natural or chemically altered, sealing your ends is a great practice because it helps to the keep the oldest parts of your hair moisturized and coated/protected from normal wear and tear as well as the weather. It is also a great way to help prevent split ends, breakage and dryness not to mention the added benefit of shine. Of course, giving your ends a little more attention leads to length retention and overall hair health. You should seal your ends at least every two days at minimum. If you have more thin or even fine hair using a light essential oil such as argan, jojoba, or even aloe vera juice is a great way to seal your ends. There are many more light weight oils that you can use but those are a few suggestions. For thick or more course hair you can use a heavier oil or butter. Of course, depending on your specific hair density and porosity you can decide what works best for you.
When and how often do I seal?
For me the best time to seal my ends is at night before bed… I seal my ends, put my hair in whatever prep for then night whether it be wrapping, braiding, twisting, bantu knotting or a simple pineapple then tie up in a satin scarf. Doing this allows my hair to absorb the moisture that I just put in and allows my hair to rest and/or dry. As well, my hair will cooperate a little better when styling the next morning without causing frizz or seeming limp. I personally seal my ends at least every two days when I wear my hair down/out. When protective styling I seal at least twice per week; because my ends are normally tucked away when protective styling my ends hold moisture much longer.
