Out of all the hair woes in the world, split ends straight up give us nightmares. With the ability to ruin a perfect cut, and to dull down a fantastic blowdry, split ends are the bane of our existence. But more often than not, they are indicative of a large problem.

Split ends happen when the ends of your hair become dry, brittle, and frayed. This is usually due to extreme weather conditions and overusing heat styling tools. Plus, there's a bunch of chemicals in hair care products that can also cause split ends. And if you're at your wit's end about what to do about the issue, and one frayed strand away from chopping off your locks — we've got your back. Slow down for a minute, and try this simple routine to get rid of split ends at home instead.
