New 'Hot Scissors' Hair Treatment Promises To End Split Ends

Were always telling you to try and stay away from the heat when it comes to hair, but we might have to amend this warning. While heat may cause dryness, breakage, and those dreaded split ends, a new innovation that's hit select salons in New York City is helping to rid tresses of these pesky problems...and all with heat!

Get acquainted with 'hot scissors.' That's right, your stylist's handy pair of clippers have gone electric!

So how does it work? This pair of plug-in scissors isn't called hot scissors for any reason. These babies heat up to 310 degrees! Used wet or dry, this latest professional hair care tool is winning salons over and will likely sweep over the industry soon. But the product's spokesman wonders why this is amazing idea has only sprung forth recently.

"Can you believe it's been four thousand years since the scissor was created, and it's taken four thousand years to come up with this," joked hairstylist Arsen Gurgov of Louis Licari Salon in New York City.

Gurgov appeared on the Today Show this week and demonstrated how hot scissors work. "You know with conventional scissors, the hair gets damaged by the environment, and you get split ends," the stylist explained. "With hot scissors, the heat helps to seal the follicle and protect it from future damage."

The benefits of a hot scissor trim are said to not only rid hair of split end damage, but also let you grow your hair out without the lengthy texture turning limp and lifeless. Even better, you can wait longer in between salon appointments since hair will be in very good condition.

Gurgov says hot scissors are like a spa treatment for the hair. No wonder this luxurious trim session comes with a $350 price tag. Some of the stylist's satisfied customers include Hollywood actresses Emma Rossum, Julianne Moore, and Today Show hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford.
