Split ends in your hair are something most women dread and hope they never get. One of the causes of split ends is the use of dull or blunt scissors to cut the hair and this results in a jagged edge on the ends as opposed to a smooth even cut. These jagged tips can quickly become split ends, which will result in hair damage that must be cut away. To ensure that your hair does not get split ends from a poor cut try to always use high quality professional hair cutting scissors that are well maintained and sharp.

Maintaining scissors is relatively easy and can make the hair cut not only a better one, but it will also extend the life of the shears. Always keep the scissors clean by wiping them down after each use. It is also important to keep the hinge lubricated for the best cutting action and to store the scissors in a safe place while not in use. Sharpening professional scissors is another story for most hairdressers. Getting a good keen edge is not as easy as it sounds and this task should therefore be trusted with a sharpening professional. Of course not everyone is really good at this so make sure the service you are going to use is experienced in hair scissors before trusting them with your best set for sharpening.
