    Darn split ends!

    I've accumulated a new compulsion: cutting my split ends. Seriously, I feel compelled to sift through my hair, finding even the slightest split...then snip snip! This is even after I just had a trim over the weekend. I've been doing this for days now. Am I nuts or what?

    Do you guys have any strange hair obsessions?

    Re: Darn split ends!

    I have had this obsession since I was in middle school....

    I have a lot of split ends and my hair breaks easily...I think having curls contributes to it.....bah!

    But I feel your pain, at least once a week I grab the little scissors from my DH's beard kit and go to town on my split ends! LOL!

    Other than cutting it all off when it becomes too long and shaggy?

    Re: Darn split ends!

    I used to have one of those Split Ender gadgets they sell on TV. You run it through your hair kind of like a brush and these little blades cut the split ends along the hair shaft and you don't lose any more than like 1/4 inch of length. It worked fairly decent... until one day the dumb thing stopped working totally. I ended up throwing it away but for the most part it did what it was supposed to do.

    That reminds me though... I need to make an appt for a trim soon. Been about 2 months since I last went. I need my roots touched up too (too much grey peeking out). Maybe I'll get it done next weekend.

    Re: Darn split ends!

    It's almost becomes rhythmic and relaxing...like trimming a Bonzai. Crazy, no?

    I've been to scared to buy that trimming contraption. I have this fear that it will come to life and start chomping my hair!


    Yes, I'm strange.

    Re: Darn split ends!

    my daughter goes NUTS when stray hairs are on her/our clothes after brushing, she will sit there till every single one is picked off..but she seriously does have OCD so i'm not sure if that has anything to do with it or not.

    Re: Darn split ends!

    You are crazy, girl!
    I rarely get split ends!

    I don't have much compulsions, unless they hair's in my eyes! Then I can't stop pushing it out!
    Oh, but usually if my hairs' down, it'll quickly start to bug me and i'll put it in a ponytail. I put it down and up SO much. Even when I've been able to stand it down for awile, I'll either get hot or eat and up it'll go.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Yes, I'm strange.
    I share the same phobia. I used to dream of a machine that would trim off my split ends quickly and neatly, lo and behold they make one, but now I'm afraid to buy it because I get the feeling it'll chomp all my hair off.....

    Re: Darn split ends!

    If you twist large strands of hair in between your fingers, the split ends will stand out more and you can trim them with out accidentally cutting and other hairs.

    I just totally sat here at my desk and tried this, it works

    I've never cut my split ends but I have made them worse by finding them and then peeling the smaller split off.

    Splits? Nuts? For a second there, I thought you were talking about an ice cream sundae.

    Strange hair obsession? Nope. Not enough to get obsessed about anymore...

    That's my technique too! Works like a charm.
