What are split ends and where do they actually affect your hair?
People often think all split ends are at the “end” meaning at the bottom of their hair. However damage and split ends can run all the way up the hair shaft. This is where I recommend a dusting (a technique where bending the hair in a way to expose the split ends and cutting only a few millimeters to remove the damaged area) You can add a dusting either in addition to a cut or in place of one if you don’t want to change your length but want to keep your split ends at bay. This is a great service to tackle this issue.
