yes. i get bored and find myself cutting my hair even though i have no split ends. Im trying to grow my hair BSL so its so hard for me to not do it anymore. I think it will help if i get braids or something. I protect my ends by applying a product with a lot of beeswax to the last few inches of my hair. Some hair beeswax but its been a savior for me. I also keep my head in plastic cap. It helps to keep the dry weather from drying out my hair.

Have you tried wearing protective styles? You can apply butters (or something else that's heavy) to your ends, girls here say that helps. When your hair is wet, you should definitely apply something to your ends to seal the moisture in. If your hair is long enough, you may want to try the 2-strand twists and use the butter to seal your ends. I would say moisture is the key to ridding yourself of raggedy ends.
I'm scissor happy too.... I didn't transition, I just BC'd all at once. I go postal sometimes, but that's another thread....
To retain your length, I suggest getting into a routine of wearing your hair in protective styles at least 3-4 days out of the week (especially in the cold season), "dusting" maybe every 6-8 weeks, and moisture, moisture, moisture = anit-breakage.

haha, up until a couple of months ago, I use to keep a pair of hair scissor in my purse!!! Horrible. I never knew when I was going to find a split strand, a knot or a jagged end, lol. I'm doing better now. I keep my ends stretched most days and keep them very hydrated with DevaCare one C+ shea butter.

I do the same thing. Actually I find that my hair still grows despite having "raggedy" ends. I just wait it out until my hair is at a length that I can handle having some length cut off and then I snip a little bit.
I also make sure I don't snip after a few drinks or when I'm PMSing.
