Split end menders that really work

If you have a problem with split ends, here are a few products that REALLY work.

We continue to get a lot of comments on our post about the split end mending technology known as PEC or PolyElectrolyte Complex. It works from inside the split to pull it back together and, best of all, it works from a rinse out product. It’s not a permanent fix but it does last through several shampoos and it works better than any other product we’ve ever seen.

If you have a problem with splits you might want to try one of these featured products. If you shop using the Beauty Brains link you’ll be helping to support us. Perry and I really appreciate it!

    Question! Does PEC require heat/blow drying to work? Or could it still bind split ends if hair were to air dry? Thanks!

      All the testing that proves PEC works was done with blow drying so we believe that’s the optimal way to use it. It will still work when air-dried but I don’t know if the number of splits mended will be different or if the degree of mending will be lessened.

    Most of the products I can find at the drugstore that contain PEC seem to exist in rinse-out formulas…in your opinion, would it be OK to use a little conditioner containing PEC as a pre-blowdry product, and not rinse it out?

      Using a rinse out product as a leave in conditioner may or may not be okay depending on the ingredients. Some conditioning agents can be irritating if left in contact with the skin.

      I have seen PEC product designed to be left in the hair although I can’t think of specific examples off the top of my head.
