Sounds scary, right? Don't worry, it's just the scientific name for split ends. Nearly anyone who uses chemical, thermal or mechanical treatments will get them. That's the bad news.
The GOOD news is, Summer Aston will tell you how to tame your trichoptilosis between trims.

Taming of the Split Ends
by Summer Aston
Did someone say split ends?
As the summer is starting to come to an end, some of us are noticing the after-shock of what it has done to our hair.
You can get split ends just about from anything: curling irons, straighteners, blowdryers, color treatments, as well as brushing your hair, or being in the sun.
With all of the heat and humidity changes around us, it's important to know how to treat your dry, damaged hair.
Let's start off with conditioners.
Split ends tell us that our ends our dry and are in need of moisture. Conditioning your hair regularly will ensure sufficient moisture to your ends and along with that will help detangle the hair so it is less prone to damage while brushing.
So why keep putting your hair through misery? Try using the Bumble and Bumble Quenching or Mending Shampoo and Conditioner that will aid you in the moisture and repair that your hair needs.
In between your regular visits of trimming off those split ends, try different ways of limiting your use of your irons and blow dryers. For instance, letting your hair air-dry more often than usual, or iron every other day rather than every day.
After the end of your style - to keep those ends tamed - try using the Bumble and Bumble Grooming Creme. This light-weight cream will finish your hair off with a healthy, happy polish.
