My hair hangs in layers to my mid back. I love, love, love long hair and though I think many women look adorable with short hair, I've tried that and I am not one of them. I was getting ready for a Christmas party and noticed that my hair is "broken" around where I put it up into a pony tail. I must've let it get too dried out and damaged it. The ends are not split, it is broken in the middle. My hair is fine in texture, but I've got a lot of it, so it isn't obvious, it still looks really good from a distance, but I know it's damaged.
What I'm concerned about is the damage spreading, like split ends do. Because of how high up the hair the damage is, I'd have to cut it to chin length with bangs at cheek bone length. I really don't want to go this short - like I said, short hair just doesn't suit me at all. If I condition it and trim it, will it be possible to grow the damage out without it spreading?
