Hair Pampering: Trimming

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!

If you study long haired super curly naturals like Sera, Kemi, Maestradiva etc, you will see that all of them use twists or braids from their own hair 90% of the time. They hardly ever use extensions and most of them keep their braids or twists in for two weeks or more at a time.

I really think if you are stuck in the middle ground, try this for two months and see if you get an extra inch.

I can always tell when I need to trim. When I see those see-through ends....its time to get rid of them.

Thanks Jc. I am starting to think that is what I need to do also. I ended up putting in medium sized two-stand twists this weekend so I'll see how this goes. . . . always a learning process *sigh*
