Definitely agree - people with split ends need regular trims and I say this from experience. Back when I was straightening my hair I only cut it once a year in an effort to grow it and it NEVER seemed to grow ... only later did I realise it's because my hair was just breaking off. I always had SUCH bad split ends (even right after a cut).

That's one of my favourite things about being CG and no-heat - I have no split ends now (granted my last cut was only a couple of months ago, but for me this is still a huge deal). Plus I have basically no breakage either.

That's why I'm so excited for this challenge - I can't wait to see how my hair grows now I'm actually taking care of it!
