Split Ender is actually made by the Revo Styler company. It's inventor - a long haired guy in a rock band who got tired of shelling out money on hair trims. Hmmm interesting. Can this really be a time saving device for those annoying split ends? I'm all for being self sufficient and saving you're hard earned money. I know those salon costs add up over time. Let's see if this hair trimmer really works.

Faster and safer than using scissors
- The unit itself is quite easy to handle and it does snip off the very ends of the hair if used correctly.
- Saves you money on trips to the salon every 2 month.
- You can only run very small sections of hair at a time. This is quite tedious and time consuming. It takes about 1 -2 hours to trim all your hair! Yikes!
- You also have to run each strand through three times very slowly to do a good job.
- It may be harder trimming the hair in the back of your head.
- You have to keep track of which strands you've already trimmed and which you haven't.
- As you can see in the video it's extremely loud when in use.
Tips if you have the Split Ender
- Xevanesco posted this excellent unbiased review/tutorial on this beauty product. Here's what she suggested to get it working properly.
- You need to remember the number of times you pass over a strand and do the same number of passes for each strand around your head otherwise it makes your hair uneven.
- Hair must be completely clean, dry and product free. It will not work on damp hair.
- The slower you pass through the hair the better the results.
How Do You Prevent Split Ends?
Regular trimming is important - around every six to 8 weeks. The biggest culprit is after you've washed you're hair. Always condition your hair and comb it out with a wide toothed comb so it easily glides through your hair. If it's full of knots and you tug at it, you'll get lots of hairs breaking. If you ever turn your hair upside down in a towel and rub it together it's very hard on your hair. Just try squeezing out excess water and wrap a towel on your head until it's dry. Unfortunately there is no way to fix split ends after their split. Hair products can only cover up the fact that they're split.
The Split Ender works but it looks like it takes far too much time to do the job. My personal thoughts are that Split Ender is basically meant for those of us with longer hair. When you head to the salon a stylist will always extend the strand of hair out quite aways from the scalp before she clips the ends. How would anyone ever be able extend their arms that far from the base of the scalp?
