Here's a test take your index finger and thumb and rub it down your strand and it your feel a "BIG" texture difference then that's an indication that you need a trim or if you let it go too long a CUT!
I hope this helped!
Below I will show some pictures of my split end and after
These are my splits
|The ends are see through and rough looking|
|You can see how some of the ends are tangling up on each other causing the hair to be hair to comb and break.|
|This is a frontal view not too bad here compared to the back but I still see some so I will go ahead and nip in the bud.|
After the Trim
|I can actually curl my ends under now that's another sign of split end when you can't curl your ends.|
|Hair looks fuller and smoother now and HEALTHY|
|I still have growth and now I can be haircut free for at least another 3 months. |
This is all the hair I cut off my entire head not much considering that I went 6 months without a trim but my hair was begging for one and I listened.
