The Method to this Madness
Point And Cut:
Your first lesson in split-end trimming starts with applying a heat protectant and using a straightener to iron out the hair. Divide your hair into half-inch sections and brush them with a wide tooth comb to seek out the frayed ends. When you spot them, point-cut them vertically.
Trimming With a Twist:
Remember braiding your hair? This is a bit like that, but there’s a twist, there’s no braiding involved, only twisting. Ever thought cutting split ends would have such layered twists? Take a small one-inch section of your hair and start twisting it in a clockwise direction. Now hold the end and look for the split ends sprouting out of the twisted strands. Take the scissors andmake a 1 inch cut to those split ends, from top to bottom. Now untangle them and twist them again in an anti-clockwise direction and repeat the process.
Skip To The End:
This will work better with damp hair, so consult the help of your nearest spray bottle. Untangle all the knots of your hair with a wide tooth comb. Select a small section of your hair and clip the rest. Run your finger from the roots till you’re an inch or two away from the end. Hold the end firmly in the gaps between your fingers and snip them out.
