Cosmetics, Beauty
Japanese term or phrase: 切れ毛
Ahh, the beauty diaries again.

髪の毛は、体が元気でないと栄養がまわらずパサっいたり切れ毛になったりとトラブルがあるので日々の食生活も大切だと思っています。

When I first saw 切れ毛, I thought maybe it is another way to say 枝毛 (split ends)?Or is this something different?

Thanks.

broken hair strands ('breakaways')
Explanation:
While 'split ends' fork or split at the end of the strand, 'breakaways' can break part-way up the hair strand.

THE BRITTLE BREAKAWAYS
Take a look at your combs — if there are no tiny white bulbs at the end of each strand it means that the hair has not fallen but broken.
