1. Cut it out!
The best way to get split end free hair is to snip off the damage. Snipping off the damage not only rids the hair of the split ends, but also gives you a fresh start so that you can keep your ends healthy. You can snip off the damage by yourself! Just divide the hair into small ponytails (about 6 or 8) and carefully trim the ends. Doing this will help you keep more hair than you would if you went to a salon.

2. Moisturize and Seal.
Keeping your hair moisturized, keeps the ends conditioned. As we all know, when the hair is conditioned, the hair is much more healthier. Now, to keep the moisture in so that it can penetrate better is another story... that's why we have oils! Natural oils are made up of larger molecules that help the moisturizers, which have smaller molecules, stay put. You can also use shea and cocoa butter as sealants. Now, I know some people might disagree with the last sentence, but both shea butter and cocoa butter are fats, which means that like oil, their molecules are also large.

3. Deep condition that hair.
As I've said time and time again, the key to healthier hair is deep conditioning. Deep conditioning at least once a week is a must if you want to keep your ends as healthy as possible.

4. Baby your ends!
Your ends are the oldest part of your hair so treat them like silk. Keep them off your clothes often to stop unnecessary breakage from the hair rubbing on your clothes.

5. Throw away that brush!
The last thing people ever think about when it comes to taking care of their ends is their brush. Excessive brushing can lead to you damaging the outer layers of the hair thus causing splits. So keep it to a minimum if you MUST brush. This also goes for combs with seams.

I realized that I didn't mention heat usage, but if you've been a reader of this blog for some time, you would know by now to keep use of heat to a minimum. I hope this helps anyone who really needs it.

Wow, didn't know that you could use shea and cocoa butter as sealants...I have a question: do you think Elasta QP Mango Butter Moisturizer could work as a sealant until I can but coconut oil and all that other great stuff?

I actually used the Elasta QP Mango Butter as a moisturizer but didn't seal that much with it since it does have both Olive and Coconut oil derivatives in it. I say, go for it!
