If you struggle to grow out your hair, you likely often have to face a difficult decision: keep the length you've been working so hard to achieve, or sacrifice it in favor of hair health. But according to Refinery29, a technique called "hair dusting" will allow you to keep your mane long and healthy.
Los Angeles stylist Sal Salcedo explained that the method consists of slicing off the very tips off your strands (where the damage is). "Think of it in terms of removing fuzz from clothes," he told Refinery29. "You want to smooth the hair out the best you can first, because you need to allow the bad hair to pop up."
It's by no means a new technique. In fact, it's quite similar to velaterapia, which uses an open flame to singe off split ends (but is definitely safer, obviously). The only reason you've not experienced hair dusting yourself is because it's a time-consuming process that's more about grooming than an actual cut. See for yourself when you read on.
