I straighten my hair all the time. Almost everyday. I've stopped now. But I noticed I have like a gazillion split ends.. it makes my hair go pretty ruff and ugly unless I straighten it again. Does anyone know how to get rid of them?

all you can do is cut off the ends. nothing will fix slit ends. your hair folicle has slit and it's not going to bind back together; hair is dead protein, it can't heal. you need to get regular hair cuts every 6-8 weeks to keep damage from coming back.
you have long hair, but just because you're growing your hair out, doesn't mean you don't get regular trims. the choice is getting trims, or having your hair break off if the damage gets severe enough. I've had several friends who's had clumps hair has broken off about an inch from the scalp because they've been using too much heat, and not getting their hair cut often enough. I had hair down to my lower ribs, I had been growing it out for a year and half, when I went in to get my hair cut for the first time, they ended up having to cut 6 inches off because it was THAT damaged.
get your hair cut, tell them to maintain the layers (the short layers will become quite short) and keep getting trims and use moisturizing treatments on a regular basis.1
