You might be wondering what exactly a split end is anyway, besides a life-sucking force that sabotages any effort you put into your hair. Split ends occur when the outer layer of hair (the cuticle) has been damaged enough to expose the inner layer. This inner layer is highly susceptible to further damage and dehydration, which in turn leads to splitting. Split ends appear dry and frizzy, detracting from the overall appearance of your hair's health. They can also easily break off, making your hair appear shorter. So how do you fix split ends?
Here's the bad news: Split ends cannot actually be repaired. That's right, once the split has occurred, the ends cannot be fused back together. That means those split-end sealing products? Those won't reverse the damage or breakage your hair has already suffered. Although they might be able to keep the split from moving farther up the shaft of your hair, unfortunately, the only true way to eliminate a split end is to cut it off.
But even though you can't truly fix split ends without cutting them off, there are things you can do to make sure they don't get any worse between trims. And please, whatever you do, DO NOT play with your split ends like they're Wishbones.
