That is not okay, A strand shall be a strand meaning a whole. As in one piece. If one decides not to cut these split ends they will keep splitting up towards your scalp. When they are splitting they tend to make the hair frizz. Therefore it weakens the hair cause they are already weakened themselves so it will make the rest of the hair look weak too. They cause dryness and since they are brittle they can lead to breakage. Now this happens if one does not take care of their hair at all meaning no treatments no cuts, nothing.
