The Common Types Of Split Ends

The Common Types Of Split Ends

There are many types of split ends, but these are the common ones you can find in the hair.

The Traditional Split
The most common of all split end types, the Traditional is a sign of early split development, largely due to dehydration and friction. It’s mini counterpart, the Baby Split occurs for the same reason – so if you spot one be sure to trim it right away to prevent it from getting worse.

The Deep Split
This type of split is usually seen on hair that’s been chemically treated. This means damage has occurred in a certain spot, causing it to split.

The Feather Split
When the Deep Split is not addressed immediately, it evolves into a Feather type of split wherein the cuticle begins to peel away more on one side of the strand. This is a result of the hair undergoing excessive chemical treatments and infrequent trimming.

The Taper Split
This type of split is a sign of significant loss of cuticle layers, leaving the cortex exposed and vulnerable to even worse damage. Any type of chemical treatment is strongly discouraged.

The Incomplete Split
The Incomplete Split usually occurs because of rough styling. This means a certain spot is weak and will split soon if not trimmed.

The Knot
The Knot is commonly seen in curly hair girls. While this isn’t exactly a type of split end, it causes tangles and breakage at the knotty spot when not careful brushing.
