Vitamin HB | Stop Hair from Splitting!

Sun, 10 Apr 2011

By Huda Heidi Kattan

I had really great question today on my formspring (which I am trying to get through right now) about split ends. I hate them more than anyone, but unfortunately they are the ugly truth of neglect and styling over time. Nothing is less attractive than a hair that is split 15+ times (believe me, I’ve seen it all), but there are ways to improve your hair quality as well as lessen the chances of split ends! Of course there is the obvious 8 week trim, but another great way to stop split ends actually starts with your bedding! Silk sheets and pillow covers are much more gentle on your hair than regular cotton sheets, so making the switch can do wonders on your hair. I actually had my own pillow sheets made! Just buy some pure silk fabric and head to your favorite tailor (or if you have an awesome grandma who loves to sew) and create your own 100% silk pillow sheet. You will definitely see the difference over time on your hair!

i heard that you should use cotton bedsheets/pillowcases instead of silk ones because silk strips your hair of its essential oils :S

Huda!!!! I read about this a while back, that sleeping on silk will stop your skin from losing its natural moisture, as it’s not as absorbing as cotton. The article attributed the gorgeous skin of old world’s royals & aristocrats to silk bedding. Love the extra benefit to hair!! It makes sense!!! For some reason I never found the time to make the switch. But now, having heard it from you -my NEW beauty GURU- I am going shopping for new bed linens this weekend!!! Thanks Huda! You ROCK!

I also can’t stand split ends!… I was told to use Moroccan oil at the ends of my hair it helps from splitting. Changing your bed sheets to silk instead of cotton reduces split ends, It’s the first I’ve heard it sounds silly

Hi baby! Argan Oil (same as Moroccan) is phenomenal for your hair! It’s awesome to add some moisture and control to hair!
I definitely thought this was a weird tip when I heard it, but OMG, it’s changed my hair and skin! Super gentle on your hair! You have to try it darling!! :) Xxxxxx
