I thought I trimmed my hair properly, but like a week later, my split ends came right back! And now my hair is breaking off again..

I used hair scissors not regular ones and i trimmed each section about 1/2 inch. What am I doing wrong? Like why is my hairstrands still continuing to split?

usually when you are trimming your own hair you are not getting to the split ends that are in the middle of your head... i sat invest in a device called the SPLITENDER... you can do some research on youtube and it cost 59.99 and get the split ends from the middle to the ends of your hair

How are you wearing your hair and what is the length. That's pretty quick for split ends to come back.

I also agree with MissCoco- I heard alot about that product and it may be a good investment. I'm sure u can do a search for it and come with many reviews.

is it possible that one could go more than a year without having a trim as long as they keep their hair moisturized and sealed really really well?

I think so. Especially if they keep their hair in protective styles all year long as well. I haven't tried that yet though. I think dusting is essential though. So if your not trimming your hair, you should dust the ends a little. I usually get about 2-3 half inch trims a year with dusts in between.

The simplest and most effective solution is to cut the hair to remove the tips or cut only the tips. Cut is preferable because it is opening and will continue to cut more hair later.

do you usually dust in between yourself or does the professionals do it?

it may be your scissor.If its a scissor that cuts anything other than hair,it may be too dull and may just be tearing away at your ends instead of giving it a sharp clean cut....my suggestion,purchase a new scissor and use it only for your hair and do extra DC.HTH Smile

I finally used the splitender coco my hair was definitely more softer and I liked the outcome...the real test is on my next wash day so that I can determine my cause of shedding intensely or breakage whatever my hair is going through.... Rolling Eyes
