I'm looking into ways to completely get rid of split ends. For the past few years I turned into a bit of a wild woman and I didn't cut my hair once. It went from being a pixie cut to all the way down past my hips. I love how long my hair is, but the split ends really ruin it. The are all the way up to my scalp, the friz is real!
I cut almost half the length off, and it has really helped. It looks less frizzy at the tips but I have a million flyaways everywhere. I've tried all sorts, but most of the info I can find is about how to prevent split ends and it's way too late for that!
Any tips, tricks, or advice is greatly appreciated.

A split end cannot be mended... regardless of allllll the bogus stuff people feed you trying to make you buy their products... a split end is a split end... you cut it off... and simply try to prevent it from splitting again...
A rip in a hair strand causes split ends..
Combing wet hair causes split ends.
Dying your hair causes split ends. (Especially light colors)
Combing tangled hair causes split ends
Straightening or heating tools cause split ends..
You just have to take care of not ripping the hair and not
But you cannot cure a split end unless you cut it... and if you cut it and don't take care of it, chances are, you're gonna have that hair split again... also, the scissors you use have to be in good condition, cause scissors too can cause more split ends.
Even the highest most expensive "split end repair" product cannot mend a split end... a split end is split forever.
Focus on making hair stronger by avoiding shampoos that contain "sodium laureth sulfate" especially if it's at the beginning of the ingredients... that's just a lot of salt that makes the shampoo foam up like crazy to make the consumer think it's "really" working, but it's just drying out your hair,,, which can make it more prone to breakage..
You need a thick conditioner, the thicker the better for your hair.. .. don't comb wet hair and don't overheat or pull rubber bands off and such... eat a healthy diet and take multivitamins with biotin to help hair get stronger.. don't tie hair in tight buns and don't wear hair up too long and if there's a lot of wind don't let hair out too long... lol
Anyway a split end, once split cannot magically become unsplit.. but you can try to prevent future split ends by making hair stronger and avoid ripping it.. we rip hair all the time without realizing it...😱!!2THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
