How to Get Rid of Split Ends—No Haircut Required


The New Potato

After you get a trim, there’s a beautiful but all-too-brief grace period of bouncy, split end–free hair. But like all good things, it comes to an end: No matter how well you condition your locks, split ends are inevitable, thanks to the damaging heat tools, brushing, colouring and all kinds of other elements that rough up our strands.

To be clear, the only way to truly banish this dreaded hair affliction is to snip them off. However, you can treat them so they’re less noticeable between cuts. The best part? You don't need a fancy hair mask or serum to do it. We caught up with stylists Jesse Montana, Alessandra Saman and Melissa Brown of Mêche Salon in Beverly Hills to nab their favourite split-end treatments, all of which can all be whipped up in the kitchen with items hiding in your pantry.
