Health Before Length
I had my hair relaxed today and my fears were realized…SPLIT ENDS. Despite all the moisturizing, deep conditioning, heat avoidance etc., I still managed to get some. This could partially be due to the extremely dry winter air we’re having here in Canada and my negligence. You see I haven’t trimmed in over 5 months. Any split ends that formed during that time had the opportunity to split further and further up the shaft because I failed to remove them.
I like to learn from my mistakes so from now on I’ll incorporate the search and destroy technique into my regimen once a month by using the guide given in this How to Trim Unhealthy Split Ends article.
The only remedy for split ends is to cut them off, so I asked my stylist to do just that. I lost an inch in some areas but I’m not going to dwell on it. This is all part of the journey.
Health before length!
