The problem with split ends is they cause breakage making it hard for you to retain length and a healthy head of hair. Performing temporary fixes, such as protein treatments and cuticle sealing, is like gluing a rubber band back together; it will stay for a little while but eventually break again.

The ugly truth is that if your ends are split the only (and I mean the only) way to truly get rid of them is to cut them off. There is no other “cure” sweetie; that’s just the way it is.

Here are the Do’s & Don’ts for split end monsters.
