I recently heard about a new product from Nexxus that is supposed to mend split ends. I figured I would be a perfect guinea pig for this product, since almost every hair on my head is split.
(I can blame that on some failed, at home coloring attempts....
I pretty much committed follicular homicide.)
Here's what went down:
This is the product packaging.
You can find this product at your local Walmart store, and it runs at about $14.
Pictured above is what the product "desires" to do. Sounds great right? I was skeptical at best, but I decided it was worth a shot anyway.
I was pretty excited to get the product. Not really expecting it to work, but still excited none the less. I mean it's supposed to bind back together 94% of my split ends while I am sleeping!
And it doesn't leave residue on bed linnens....
This is science at it's finest!
Ok, enough gawking! Promises are great, but I wanted proof!
I followed the instructions as they are stated on the bottle (pictured above). It says that you use a quarter sized amount on dry or damp hair. I decided to apply the product to my dry hair and then spritz it with water so that I could work it in more evenly. I focused mostly on the ends but I have layers so I also applied it throughout. I then went to bed and washed my hair as per usual the next morning.
So, what happened? .....A miracle! That's what flipping happened! I couldn't believe the results! I would say it repaired at least 94% of my split ends, probably more! I could only find a few pieces that were not mended. I was blown away, I didn't expect much and with my damaged hair, I would have been satisfied if it had repaired 50% of my split ends, but this was amazing!
My only regret? Not taking a "before" picture... but, the picture below will show you what it looked like one day after using Nexxus Pro Mend.
I used the product on a Thursday night and I did not see any split ends popping back up until Monday. My hair continued to return to its normal state throughout the week and by the next Thursday it was time to use it again. I used the product exactly as I had the week before and yet again, I am pretty much split end free!
So, my final report on this product..... It is a bit pricey at about $14 for a 1.9oz bottle. However, using only a quarter size amount once a week will ensure that this product lasts quite a while. I could use it twice a week to keep any split ends from showing. That is probably something that will vary depending on the individual's hair and how far they wish to stretch the product. At any rate, I highly recommend trying this. It took my hair from hopeless to fabulous over night and kept it that way for almost a week!
