I'm about one year and 6 months natural. Can't believe how fast time has flown by! I finally have started to understand my hair's needs and what works best. It's taken a lot of trial and error and experimenting! Currently,I'm winning the battle against dry ends and I think that's all due to my new styling method. Sunday I put my hair in twists, wear it in a twisted updo all week and undo the twists and wear my hair out for the weekend. Thus far, dry ends have not been an issue with this technique. What are some of your methods for battling split ends?
