I have naturally curly hair. I used to HATE it. I did two rounds of the Japanese straightening treatment years ago, and I really regret it how. Anyway, my hair has grown out and the straight hair from that treatment is the last inch or two on my ends. I have long hair and love having it long. But my ends are disgusting. They don't match the texture of my hair now, they're dry, lots of breakage and split ends. How much should I cut off? But doesn't cutting your hair defeat the purpose of growing it out?

See, the thing about split ends is... they're ends, that are split. Right?
If you don't cut them off, then, they can -- and by all means will -- continue to split, gradually, up the length of the hair.
It's the same reason you cut frayed ends off of clothing. If you don't, then the frayed ends will catch on things, and pull, and then fray even more than they would if they were cut off.
And that's not even mentioning the simple fact that yr hair looks like crap if it's got a bunch of split ends. lol0
