Im wanting to grow my hair to below shoulder/middle of back length, this means that im trying not to go the the hairdressers except when I get split ends. Here is the catch - I have no idea what a split end looks like! I last went to the hairdressers in september and I really don't want to go again till febuary at the earliest but I need to know when I have split ends because then I will have to go to the hairdressers whether I want to or not. Help!!
Curl Type 3A and with a mind of its own.

Shampoo once a week with Organic Aloe Vera Herbal Shampoo.

Currently on the look out for a new DT and Styling Cream, though Curl Junkie is looking quite good.
When your hair splits. It splits into 2 hairs. like a: Y.

A chart thingy I found with google.

I get all of those

AdriaCroft, if you don't know what a split end looks like, then you probably don't have any. They're ridiculously easy to spot.
