"As tempting as it may be to hold on to the length, it can do more harm than good. The ends of your hair are old and have been subjected to brushing and heat so if you don't trim them away, it won't style well. What's more, once the ends start to split, it travels up to mid-lengths causing the damage to spread."
Solution: "If you want your hair to style, curl and hold better, have trims every six weeks. Once the damaged hair is removed, it will look and feel so much healthier."
