Split Ends and Rope

Custom Design Hair

A question I hear often is “Why do we need to trim hair in order for it to grow?” If you could see a hair under a microscope it would somewhat remind you of a piece of rope. A rope consists of many small fibers wound together into a bunch, then several bunches are wound together to make a rope. Hair somewhat looks the same. If you have ever had a rope that got messed up and frayed on the ends then you understand that as hard as you may try, you just can’t get those ends all wound around right again. The best way to fix that mess is to cut a clean end and throw the frayed end away. Then try harder next time to not let that damage happen again.

It’s the same with hair. Use great products and be gentle in how you care for your hair. If split ends happen again then trim off the bad end and start fresh with how you care for your hair. The rope will not grow but fortunately for your hair it is continuing to grow a little every day. Care for the ends correctly and your hair will get longer.

  • Sometime ago we moved from out of state to Northwest Arkansas. For the past 30 years I had worked with the same hair stylist for my hair replacement needs. I thought I had the best stylist going but little did I know the best was yet to come! When I started looking for a new stylist in NWA after the move, every inquiry seemed to point me in the direction of Sara Lou at Custom Design Hair. Quite obviously after working with the same stylist for 30 years I was extremely hesitant about making the change but finally talked myself into making an appointment with Sara Lou. Glad I did, right from the first moment we met I was put at ease with her friendly and personal approach to dealing with my specific needs. I am just sorry it took me 30 years to finally find the best! Sara Lou has a customer friendly can do attitude and after working with me and my situation, I can’t imagine a hair replacement problem that she cannot successfully conquer!
