This Is How to Break Up With Your Split Ends

Split ends are annoying. Not only do they make your hair look unkempt, but if they’re left to their own devices, they can travel up the hair shaft. This means that next time you visit the hairdresser’s for a trim, you could leave with a much shorter haircut than you bargained for.

I am obsessive about split ends. Despite going to the hairdresser’s being very much a part of my job, I don’t have my hair cut more than once a year. There are two reasons: first, because I like my hair long, and second, because I have a fear of scissor-happy hairdressers. I like to leave the salon without anyone knowing I’ve had my hair cut.

I called on two hair experts to help you avoid the curse of the split ends. They’ve also let us know how you can stop them from getting worse (for those of you who already have them). Because you should never have to get your hair cut if you don’t want to.
