Does the type of scissors that you trim your hair with really matter? The scissors I've seen that are specified for hair are usually around $10- $15. I use just all-purpose around the house type of scissors for around $2.00.But, that's all I use them for. I thought that as long as they are sharp, that's all that matters. I use them trim split-ends, not to create a style. Thanks for your help!

I 'm trying to figure out why my hair is so damaged and breaking off. I don't use any type of heat on my hair, I stopped my old way of shampooing and it has helped, but I was thinking that maybe the way I was cutting my hair was the culprit. If anyone knows, please tell me. My hair is driving me crazy. I should have the healthist hair around, but instead I have split-ends all the way up the hair shaft and i shouldn't.HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How long is your hair? My hair is waist-length, and I end up with some damage no matter how careful I am. What I have found to be the most helpful are hot oil treatments. I use warm olive oil on my dry hair before I go to sleep every night. If I'm going to wash my hair the next morning then I use a lot -- enough to make all of my hair greasy for the night. (I sleep in a sleeping cap those nights.) If I'm not going to wash my hair the next morning, then I just use about a dime sized amount of oil and rub it through the ends of my hair. I used to use regular household scissors, but when I switched to actual hair-cutting scissors I found I had a lot less breakage.Good luck!

I do use oil in my hair. I do hot oil treatments. I put mayo, yogurt,etc... When I'm outside I put oil in. It just seems that no matter how well I treat my hair, it's determined to be damaged. I also leave conditioner in my hair. I'm convinced that I just have bad hair! ~k
