A few years back, I didn't know what split ends are. When one fine day I was, as usual, playing with my hair and I noticed why is it breaking in so many directions. Some were cut from the middle. I thought it might be a hair disease. Oh God! what do I do now. I was pressing my hair with iron at that time. Imagine! how strong my hair must have been that it dealt with such harsh conditions.
You must be very well aware of the teenage years me when you are dealing with the 'looks' issue. I was in school. I had just started using straighteners very badly and almost daily.
Another fine day I was chatting with my friends in the hostel when someone told me who have so many split ends. That was the time, it turned into an embarrassment.

Split ends are one of the most common hair problems experienced by mostly all of us. It is actually a type of hair damage that starts at the end of the hair shaft. However, it can occur anywhere on the length of the hair as you can also have in the middle of a hair strand.

Disclaimer: It is not a gender-specific post. Generally, split ends occur in long hair. Men think they don't have them. But check once again!
