Can I cut the tips off my Vallisneria or will it cause the whole leaf to die?

The ends of mine have gotten a bit ragged and they dont look very nice anymore. I tried looking it up but I've gotten conflicting information on it. Any one with personal experience?

I have always been told to NOT cut the leaves as it will cause it to melt. I have jungle vallisneria now have had the smart plants for over a year and a half now. When the leaves get too long or algae on them I personally cut them. Have never had the plant die or the leaves. I just cut my the other day cause they were like 7'+ and all tangled up with each other. They also had algae.
