Split ends are a constant problem for those with dry or colored hair. To solve it, it is not necessary to turn to a professional every time. You can trim split ends yourself at home.
It is necessary
scissors with sharp blades
Purchase special scissors for cutting your hair. Regular clerical scissors are usually not sharp enough and leave a ragged cut that can further split the hair.
Comb and lightly dampen your hair. Use a comb to separate a small section of hair and pinch the end with two fingers. Trim split hairs perpendicularly. This way, the cut area will be smaller than with a diagonal haircut, and the likelihood of splitting the hair will be reduced.
Another way to trim split ends. Separate the strands and twist it in a tight bundle. The ends of your hair will stick out and you will easily notice damaged ends. Trim them carefully. Loosen the strand, comb it and twist it in the opposite direction. This method is suitable for graduated haircuts. It is better to work with dark hair not on a light background, but with light on a dark background.
Removing split ends can be combined with trimming regrown hair. In this case, the wet hair is carefully combed and the ends are trimmed to the required length, usually no more than 5 cm.
To prevent splitting hair, it is necessary to take proper care of them. After shampooing, apply a moisturizing balm to the hair. When using a flat iron, curling iron or hair dryer to create your hairstyle, be sure to protect your hair with special heat protection products.
