How can you get rid of split-ends without having to cut my hair

i have tons of split-ends and i heard that you have to cut your hair really short so it can grow back normally

Once those ends split, there's no way to "heal" it. All you can do is trim it. Conditioners may soften and sleek, but they can't fix split ends.

cutting your hair is the easiest way to get rid of them. When i start to get split ends i stop straightening or curling my hair for a couple weeks and just throw it up in a bun. Having the heat off of it will really help. In addition, condition your hair for about 20 minutes everyday.
This is how i take care of my split ends and dead hair and it works really well (:

Get the ends trimmed. It only takes the bare minimum - like 1/4 inch off - to get rid of the split ends. You'll barely notice, and it will make tons of difference in making it look like healthy hair again.

Get an Aloe Vera plant, cut a piece off, take out the gel, with a spoon put it on the split ends leave it on your hair for 30 minutes, brush your hair and take a shower with Aloe Vera shampoo then brush your hair when you get out and braid your hair. DO this every day for 2 weeks.

You can't repair split ends. I don't care what Pantene says. Split ends are an indicator of damaged hair and the only thing you can do is trim them off. Find a good stylist and tell them that you only want your split ends trimmed. They'll take off between 1/8th to 1/4th of an inch which is hardly noticeable.

Once you have then removed, you can help prevent future split ends by using products that protect your hair from flat or curling irons. Deep condition or use a hot oil treatment once a week only. If you do it more frequently, you will end up with product build up that will make your hair be weighed down and appear greasy.

I hope that helped. Good luck.

well yes you can cut your hair but sometimes the split ends appear again, so I use a hair product that prevent new ones that can damage my hair, it's Pro Naturals Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment with Heat Protector which works pretty good and keeps my hair soft and healthy. :D

i have tried many things. i tried the egg mask, the yogurt mask and more, non of them worked. i also tried putting the tips of my hair in vinegar. it took some away and made it better but not fully. that worked because the acid in the vinegar takes the split ends like go but make sure you either rinse your tips and put some kind of oil on the tips or take a shower right away so it doesnt make you hair drying causing more split ends. THE THING THAT SAVED ME SO MUCH is!!!!! if you put henna hair dye in your hair, the natural one. henna comes in 3 different colours: black, brown and red. i chose red. i also had to mix it with crushed tomatoes and beets. now im not exactly sure which product (the beets, tomatoes or the henna) got rid of the split ends or they did it together but i worked amazingly. i heard tomatoes help get rid of split ends but still im not sure which did it. i use to have a ton of split ends and even when i cut it i still had a ton and i didnt want to cuz it more cuz i was also trying to grow out my hair at the same time so when i did this I SWEAR i couldnt even find 1 split ends!
JUST BE CAREFUL WITH THE MESS :)
I HOPE THIS WORKS AS WELL AS IT DID FOR ME :)
