split ends and dandruff both happen because of lack of moisture in the skin. Less water content in the skin leads to less water content in the hair roots and ultimately less water in the hair shaft. Such dry hair shafts then split towards the tip and stop growing. It is very necessary that you are well hydrated yourself so that the water content in your body is well and in turn even the skin is well hydrated. You must drink atleast 4 to 5 liters of water everyday. Oiling your hair regularly is equally important for having silky smooth hair. If you have to travel a lot or are exposed to sun, the pollution and the sun rays tend to damage the hair a lot. In such cases, it is better that you wrap a scarf around your hair. Eating a healthy diet is necessary to provide proper nutrition to the entire body and even your hair. Eat a lot of salads and consume atleast one fruit in a day. If you follow all these, the hairfall will automatically reduce and your hair texture will also improve.
