WE'VE been counting down the days for hair salons to open so we can finally tend to our unruly lockdown manes.
But an Australian hairdresser has revealed just how easy it is to tame your split ends at home which will save you hundreds on haircuts at salons.
Hairdresser Meggan Garland demonstrated the handy hack on TikTok, admitting it's exactly what her working "day consists of."
She says: "I don't know why I'm going to share this with you guys, but here we go."
She starts by combing her hair before taking a small section of her locks.
She then runs her fingers down the length of the hair to smooth it out before wrapping the hair over one of her fingers.
She explains: "Coming from a hairdresser, if you have split ends or if you ever just need a hair cut, grab your scissors, grab your hair, put it over your fingers and you wanna bend it."
She then drags her fingers down the section of hair as she reveals: "Your split ends are going to ping out."
The hairdresser admits she does it every week so she rarely has split ends at all.
But once they do appear simply snip them off, she explains, and your hair will remain will be as healthy as ever.
In the comments she further explained that healthy hair strands are heavier and "won't poke out."
So all the ones you see stick out are damaged and can easily be snipped off.
The clip has racked up thousands of comments from people thankful for the tip.
And the good news is that it works on all hair types, including both straight and curly locks.
"I've been doing this for over 10 years now, work wonders," one person said in the comments.
"I desperately need to do this," said another. Adding: "Thanks girl."
Even another hairdresser chimed in and said: "I'm a hairdresser too and do this. Highly recommend. But make sure they're sharp scissors or you're just making new split ends."
