Split Ends? Help is On the Way

One of the most frustrating parts of hair care is the very unwelcome arrival of split ends. But, there are definitely some ways to combat, and in some cases, even solve your split-end issues.


Catch 'em early

Split ends are progressive, meaning, once an end is split, it continues to split, moving from the end toward the scalp. If you don’t get your hair trimmed, you could end up with fine, straggly, frizzy, damaged-looking hair.


Even a trim helps

So how often should you get your hair trimmed? It depends on how fast your hair grows, the condition of your hair, and personal preference. Every 4-6 weeks is standard, however. It’s much easier to trim or "dust off" a quarter of an inch, than wait and have to cut off 3 inches for your hair to look healthy and beautiful.


Mend the ends

Now, if you already have split ends, there’s still hope. Although nothing can totally and completely fix split ends, DESIGNLINE Mend the Ends Shampoo, Conditioner, and Split-End Sealer can help. These products do exactly what their name implies. They moisturize and strengthen hair to help avoid a major split end outbreak. Swing by a SmartStyle salon and ask your stylist if Mend the Ends is right for you.
