Split ends happen to everyone and they can be difficult to avoid. If you’re a fan of styling with heat, dying your hair, or using chemicals in it, your hair is sure to have some damage. The only way to get rid of them instantly is to get a haircut but those happen every month or so and might not be an option if you’re still a week or two away from your next hair appointment.

If you need to get rid of those split ends asap but aren’t able to go to the salon, try this easy DIY trick to get rid of split ends at home.

What you’ll need:

A pair of eyebrow scissors (that’s it!)

Now follow these steps:

Step 1. Brush out your hair so it’s all evenly textured.

Step 2. Take an inch piece section of hair (we recommend starting at the front part of the head) starting around your temple area and place the section in between your pointer and middle finger. Slide down the hair slowly and you should see the split end popping up naturally. Trim them until you get all the way to the end.

Step 3. Repeat on the rest of the hair.

For best results, do this in a well-lit area so you can get all of those pesky split ends. Be sure to apply a moisturizing hair mask to your hair once a week to prevent split ends from happening.
