In brief: Hair growth

Split ends are due to mechanical stress on hair-brushing, hair dryers, hot combs, perms, etc.
A good balanced diet will promote healthy hair growth. Extreme dieting, low iron, low vitamin d, low biotin, low thyroid, certain medications and many other factors can cause hair to shed. Iron supplementation has to be done under dr's supervision as too much iron can be dangerous to the liver.
