Even if you keep up with your 鈥渏ust a trim鈥 hair appointments every eight weeks or so, you probably still notice split ends here and there. And we鈥檙e all in agreement that split ends are the absolute worst, amiright? No matter how much precious time you spend with your flat iron or curling wand, they can make hair just look flat, unhealthy and pretty much blah. Here鈥檚 some epic news, though. A new styling technique is making the salon rounds, and it may actually end split ends. Like for good. Introducing hair dusting 鈥 the new technique you never knew you always needed. Read on for all of the details on the lock-saving trend.

What the heck is hair dusting anyway? Brian J. O鈥機onnor, creative director at goodDYEyoung, explains that, unlike a trim, you don鈥檛 lose length with this process. Instead, your stylist will clip off the wayward splits after your hair is styled. If you鈥檙e looking to grow out your locks or de-layer without losing any length, this might be the way to go.

Will it work for my hair type? Brian explains that hair dusting can work for any hair type. However, it can be difficult for a stylist to get it exactly right. So if you have curly hair, they鈥檒l need to dry and straighten your locks before dusting to make sure it looks perfect.

Is it worth it? If your hair is prone to breakage and sad split ends, hair dusting is probably worth a try. Brian says that his clients are singing its praises. 鈥淚鈥檝e noticed a great difference on clients that I鈥檝e done this on, it鈥檚 helped grow out some of those pesky layers they鈥檝e been trying to get rid of, but the split ends were keeping that from happening,鈥 he says. Plus, you may notice fewer flyaways and frizz. So your hair will look great in the heat and humidity, and even after taking off your winter beanie. So YAS, sign us up.
