There are many reasons why split ends occur. Not trimming the hair regularly is the main cause of split ends. The ends of the hair could be over exposed to the sun and also could have damage from hair dryers and straighteners. Also, as your hair grows, the natural oils from the scalp may fail to reach the ends of the hair making it dry and brittle. Coloring may also cause dry and brittle ends that may lead to split ends. Poor quality brushes and combs may also cause split ends. These are the steps of preventing split ends.
