Split ends are most common hair problems for women. They occur when hair becomes damaged or dry, caused by chemical, thermal or mechanical stresses. Hair coloring, combing, using hair dryer, straighteners, curling iron comb are external factors that cause hair damage making them prone to split ends.
Like skin, hair is made up of layers and when a split occurs it means that the cuticle (the outer layer that protects hair) is worn away.
Once you get them, the only way to get rid of is to get your hair trimmed. Don’t believe to some shampoo claims that promise to repair split ends. If you are trying to grow your hair longer, better prevent split ends than trimming them.
