Hot oil conditioning is one of the oldest and most proven home remedies for split ends. To see wonderful transformations in very little time and using littlest amount of condiments possible one should try this treatment regularly. Heat some olive oil or coconut oil or almond oil in the microwave for 15 seconds. Make sure it is not scalding hot and massage it in gently on your scalp. Leave it on for 45 minutes to an hour. For extremely dry hair one can leave it on overnight as well. Wash it off with lukewarm water and mild shampoo.
