With blow-drying and straightening in style, hair may look good in the short-term, but in the long-term, it suffers dryness and damage. And while there are many products that help revitalize and moisturize damaged hair, they don’t do much for one of the worst long-term consequences of having perfectly styled hair … split ends.

However, now there is a solution for those dreaded split ends, with the new ProMend Split End Binding line from Nexxus. According to the company, the products can bind 92 percent of split ends together in just one use. The line offers shampoo and conditioner for about $14 for a 13.5-ounce bottle. It also offers a leave-in cream and overnight cream, which cost about $8 each. That’s not a bad deal for something that usually takes a haircut to fix. Find out more at
