stop the heat... trim the splits so they don't go up the shaft. deep condition once a week. protective style if you can.

Get  a trim.

How often are you flat ironing?

I use heat (tension blowdry every wash).. but I only flat iron every 4 months or so.

Clip the ends or else the split could travel up the strand as someone mentioned.

clip or dust the ends right above the splits. Where is the moisture in your hair regimen? I flat-iron every two weeks in the winter and go curly in the summer. If you must flat-iron, you HAVE to incorporate moisture. Make sure you are deep conditioning before flat-ironing and using a light water based moisturizer (sparingly to retain the straight look) on your ends and sealing with a light oil ( i use castor oil or vitamin e oil). Give your hair a break from the heart sometimes. You cant try blending you relaxed ends with your natural new growth by doing bantu knot, braid, or twist outs that way you can maintain a large amount moisture.

Trim them, moisturize your ends regularly and seal with oil. Avoid excessive heat/ chemical use bc you'll be repeating the cycle of breakage.

I'd definitely clip them. The split end will travel all the way up to your scalp. It sucks.

Split ends definitely need to be gotten rid of! This is why everyone says that trims encourage growth. Split ends and overdead hair can start ruining the hair shaft above it.

Definitely avoid heat like everyone says. Before I ever started dying and straightening my hair years and years ago, I NEVER got split ends. I think pulling my hair into a ponytail all the time helped as well, as hair that lies flat on your body can get tangled in things much easier, or even tangled amongst itself (this of course is advice for when your hair reaches those lengths). Just whatever you do, avoid causing further damage!

I'm actually in need of a trim myself, but I'm avoiding it at all costs (it took so long to reach this full SL!) I don't think I have split ends, but my ends are incredibly damaged and dried-out. But to lengthen the time between trims, I make sure I use damage repair shampoos, conditioners and deep conditioners. I use a leave-in conditioner (my new favourite is Profectiv Beautiful Lengths hair lotion, it helps strengthen the hair and prevent further breakage and splitting). And if I NEED to straighten, I make sure to use a heat protecting spray. This is a MUST! So far, I've been able to "heal" my hair a good bit this way. I may be able to get away without trimming until after summer if I can keep up with everything (now that I'm keeping away from heat and bleach/hair dye).

Also, the right hair brush can help prevent split ends! Mine looks like this, and I love how it glides through my hair and never gets caught (even when my hair is wet):
