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.

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.

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.

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.
