What Causes Split Ends?


Question: What Causes Split Ends?
Answer: Split ends are caused by damage done by:

curling irons
straightening irons
hair coloring products

You can keep split ends in check with proper hair maintenance: Trim, trim, trim. What you don't want to happen is have your hair split all the way up the shaft, rendering that hair ruined. To keep hair conditioned in the meantime, you'll need to deep condition once a week.

Tame split ends with a styling cream and if it's really time for a haircut, pulling hair back in a loose bun (my favorite trick) will hide all those nasty ends.
