Ok few questions. Are you using henna and when you cut the splits are the scissors sharp or dull? Do you wear your hairs in updo or braids?

I have this same issue and have come to the fact it is uncontrollable. I can use the sharpest scissors in the world and it would split a week later. As you can see my hiar is long and splits ends haven't stopped me yet :) I use henna as well.

No if you do them loose they help hair be contained. If you do braid to tight then yes it is bad for the hairs;)

To get healthy hairs make sure to eat healthy drink enough water and cover the hair when out in the sun. Oil them treat them gently and your hair will be awesome:thumbsup:

If you have long hair, you will have at least some splits (I have a bunch). It comes with the territory. :shrug:

I concur, long hair almost always has splits, and while we can keep them at bay, almost everyone has at least some. Furthermore, some people's hair splits more than others, and some hair is more fragile than others.

Do make absolutely sure that your scissors are sharp. If you trim your hair and are full of splits a few weeks later, I suspect they've gotten too dull for hair. Also, be very careful how you tie your hair (braids and ponytails particularly), making sure your splits aren't forming at the location where the hair tie goes. If they are, you'll want to look at other ways of securing your hair and try to move the location around.

I get a lot of splits, it just happends I suppose. We can reduce the amount we get but we cant rid them altogether I don't think!

Maybe instead of cutting them off, just try to make them not look like split ends? lol Like by putting some oil on your hair when a little damp and rub into the ends? Make it looks like "splity"?:o

Amen.

I made a post almost exactly like this one a while back. I had cut 6" off my hair one night - I cut 1" and then looked for splits. If I found even one I went another inch..and on..and on..and on until I couldn't find any. Guess what - a month later I had more splits.

It's not something you can get rid of, especially if your hair is fragile as mine seems to be. Usually I see people post or blog about doing what it takes to hit the length they're after and then they start trimming to fix the ends (even them up or thicken them).

Review the boards for more ideas on how to treat your hair gently. Are you using rubber bands on your braids? Elastic with metal bands? Plastic brushes or combs? Shampoo/conditioner with sulfates, parabens, or cones? Are you piling your hair on your head when you shampoo? How often do you wash? Do you brush wet hair? Once you learn more about how to care gently for your hair you'll get fewer splits...but never no splits.

I will always have splits, however, putting my hair up and treating it nicely with gentle combing instead of rough brushing, careful detangling and safer hair accesories (no metal, no glued lines, no seams in my comb, etc) have helped greatly REDUCE the splits. And my hair has begun to grow when it "wouldn't" grow.

ya this what am doing but it cant solve ! Coz once you leave the split it will go up to the hair ..cause more damage
so better to remove

I USED to have hair like that.....I still get some splits but not nearly as much as before and I attribute that to the catnip rinses I do 3 times a week or every time I wash. That's all I use for conditioner. Now my splits aren't split for the most part, there are angled ends but that's all I can find.

do you have any past damage? If so, even now that your taking care of your hair, that could be causing all the split ends.

I don't know if it is for you, but I stopped combing my hair. That made a tremendous difference! I think I get just 10% of the split ends I used to have.

I started using catnip again today, I hope it will work. I also cut off a fair bit to have a thicker hemline. I really should do s&d every week if I want to be split end free. I wouldn't mind split ends if they wouldn't travel up, because they're not very visible in my hair. I just don't want to risk the travelling up and loosing hair over this.

I think long hair=splits no matter what you do. My hair is fine which breaks and splits as soon as it reaches BSL, all I can do is make sure its conditioned and S&Ded regularly and hope for the best. Oils though have helped in reducing the amount of splits I get but do not eliminate them entirely.
