Once a hair splits on the ends the best cure is to trim the hair just above the split end," said celebrity hairstylist Philip Carreon, Creative director of Eufora International. However, if you wait too long, the split can move up the shaft making the hair weak and vulnerable if you don't get to it in time.The splits can progress all the way up your entire hair length.
If you've ever colored your hair, you probably know that it's possible for your hair to be damaged.Hand painted bleach and high lift color is so popular, but it leaves the ends the lightest and the most damaged, adding that you need to "keep in mind, the ends of our hair are already the oldest hair and the most fragile."
If you have short hair, maintenance is key to keep the style looking fresh. As someone who's had two pixie haircuts in the past, I can say that once the initial shock has worn off, maintaining the cut is the most difficult part.
