How can I nix split ends?
There’s only one way to get rid of split ends, and that’s to cut ‘em off. Stylists suggest snipping your locks a quarter-inch above the actual split end itself to keep your hair from continuing to split. To keep your hair healthy, sometimes you’ve gotta lop off more than you’d like.
To prevent split ends, there are a few different things you can try, but it all comes down to protecting your hair. Avoid breakage by using a moisturizing conditioner and avoiding brushing your hair when it’s wet. If you have to, grab a wide-toothed comb and work through the tangles slowly and gently.
- Pick up a deep conditioner or a leave-in conditioner at the drug store and give your hair the spa treatment a once every few weeks.
