As a general rule, you should get your hair trimmed every six weeks or so, but even with the best will in the world, split, broken and damaged ends can and do happen before we have time to stop them. So, how can you hide damaged hair between trims?

1/ Experiment with updos

The best way to hide split ends is quite simply to keep them tucked out of sight. For that, you need a few trusty updos - and no, we don't mean the same topknot everyday until your stylist can fit you in. If anything, dealing with damged hair is the perfect excuse to try something new, be it a French twist, messy bun or even a vintage beehive (just be gentle when backcombing)!

2/ Braid it

In a similar vein, braiding your hair will keep any visible damage underwraps. So, if you haven't yet found the motivation to master the fishtail technique, or never really had a reason to perfect a French braided updo, now is the perfect time!

3/ Texturize your hair

Adding texture to your hair - specifically an undone, tousled finish - is a great way to camouflage split and broken ends. The matte, wispy texture hides them in plain sight! All you need to do is apply a texturizing mist like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray, then blow dry your hair in twisted sections on a medium heat.

4/ Stop the damage

While you can't reverse or cure damaged ends, you can prevent the situation from worsening by taking great care of your mane. This means keeping your hair well conditioned and laying off the heat as much as possible between trims, especially if you have colored or chemically treated hair.
