Hello and welcome to this week’s Tip Tuesday ❤️ Today I’m sharing an awesome technique for getting rid of split ends without losing length – you can even do it at home!
We all know that the only way of getting rid of split ends is cutting them. However, if you’re trying to grow your hair out, but need to get rid of split ends regularly (they cause hair dryness and further damage over time), then the technique that might be best for you is dusting.
Dusting is basically trimming only ends of hairs that are damaged, which makes the hair look healthier and works if you have slight to moderate amount of split ends.
Here’s how I do it at home: I take a strand of my hair and twist it all the way to the ends. As a result, the hairs that are very dry, split, or damaged, will stick out of it:
Hairdressers do it by pressing a flattened strand of hair on the flat side of the comb to make those dry and damaged ends stick out, but the principle is the same:
My hair gets very mild split ends (especially since I’ve completely stopped coloring it), so I do this procedure once every 2-3 months. It works great for medium to long hair, but even with short hair you can ask someone to do it for you using the flat side of the comb as a tool to press the hair against and then trim those split ends.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s #TipTuesday!
