I just had to do it! I noticed that my hair needed a trim – BAD! I don’t usually liken to cutting my own hair but I haven’t been back to the salon since last July and don’t plan on going any time soon (read about it here). For all intents and purposes, I’ve become a “do-it-yourselfer” in most hair related areas. Since July, I have only “dusted” my ends on a few occasions.
Since my quest is for not only healthier but longer hair, it was bittersweet. I’m acquainted with how my hair should feel and look so I cut off what wasn’t quite right. This probably turned out to be about an inch but I’m glad I did it. It is best to manage and care for your hair without the splitting, breaking, tangled ends that tend to hinder the process.
My slight vent: I feel like I’ve been stuck in this “middle ground” for too long. My hair is too long to be a TWA but I don’t seem to be able to retain length either. At times I feel like starting all over and doing a big chop to give me a clean slate. I don’t know if I will get that drastic yet. I still hold hope that one day, my hair will really thrive.
Thanks for reading. Be blessed!
