Trimming Your Own Split Ends - Conquer Your Damaged Hair!

The reason most of us go to a hair stylist is to either have them style our hair, color our hair, or trim our hair. But sometimes saving money, especially during the holidays, seems a lot more appealing. The reality is that hair can be expensive, especially more for women. When your hair is damaged you know the solution is to get a hair cut or trim, but the last thing you want to do is spend a ton of money.

No one likes damaged hair, especially if your hair is looking rather unappealing at the ends. The symptoms of split ends is the following: your hair breaks easily,  you have a  bad case of the "frizzies", split ends, your hair has lost its shine or luster, and your hair has rough spots or feels rough all over.

If you are experiencing these symptoms and your damaged hair is annoying you, it's probably really hard to style your hair because you're not pleased with it. You wish you could make an appointment but you're afraid that you'll get sucked into a highlight and complete style. Then the ending price will end up being a whopping $100 or more.

The good news is that we have a solution to your dilemma if you want to cut back on the costs.

Did you know that with a little bit of practice you can cut your own split ends?

Here's how.

1. Purchase a pair of hair shears. You can find them at a local beauty supply store or online. Do not use normal scissors because you will damage your hair even more.

2. Cut perpendicular to the hair strand. This will keep the end of your hairs stronger than a slanted cut would.

3. Make the cut about 1/4” above the split ends to create healthy ends again.

4. Trim your hair against a light background if you have dark hair and a light background if you have light colored hair.

You know have successfully learned how to trim your hair! So don't worry about the split ends. Save some money and go Christmas shopping instead!
