In a nut­shell, here’s what hair dust­ing is:

Hair - - Hair Buzzword -

Though a rel­a­tively old tech­nique, this trend has re­cently caught the fancy of many hair­styl­ists. It pri­mar­ily in­volves snip­ping the an­noy­ing split ends while pre­serv­ing the hair length.

Since very lit­tle hair is cut, the trimmed hair clip­pings re­sem­ble ‘dust’. Hence the name ‘dust­ing’.

Once the split ends stick out, the stylist will also be able to do a quick anal­y­sis and de­ter­mine where and how much of dust­ing is re­quired.

Hair dust­ing is suit­able for all hair types and hair tex­tures but es­pe­cially does won­ders on lay­ered hair and waves.

Once through with a dust­ing ses­sion, it is im­por­tant to pro­tect the hair from fu­ture dam­age by in­clud­ing a split end re­pair prod­uct as a part of your hair care regime. This will help ex­tend the ef­fects of hair dust­ing and also aid in en­sur­ing that your hair is brim­ming with great health!

The snip­ping hap­pens at the very bot­tom of each hair strand, thereby thin­ning the dam­aged ends. This adds health to each and ev­ery strand and gives a sub­tle body and bounce to the over­all ap­pear­ance.

One rule of thumb: En­sure that the hair is prop­erly washed, dried, and straight­ened be­fore per­form­ing the hair dust­ing tech­nique. A prop­erly washed mane will al­low the dry split ends to pop out and make the en­tire pro­ce­dure quick and easy.

A word of cau­tion: The cut­ting can­not be too deep and com­pre­hen­sive. It’s more like skim­ming through the mid-lengths and ad­dress­ing the dam­aged ar­eas only.

Proper sec­tion­ing of the hair is piv­otal to make the hair dust­ing suc­cess­ful. With im­proper sec­tion­ing, you may miss some bro­ken ends and even end up cut­ting into strands of healthy hair.
