Spring is coming! Thought I’d share that real quick! For the last few weeks, when I’ve been washing and styling my hair, my hair was shedding and knotting so bad that I didn’t want to do anything to my hair. My braid outs didn’t last, and my flat twists would knot when I try to unravel them. It was unsettling. Then, it hit me. Girl, you need a TRIM! And I’m not talking, clip here and there, I mean go in your hair, section it if you need to and take those scissors and investigate! Then, you need a protein treatment too (but we’ll get into that in another post)! This past Monday, I woke up super early (we had an appointment to meet with our caterer!) and went straight to my bathroom and started prepping for a much needed trim.
I must say, I am in no way a professional, I just watched a plethora of videos on deva-cut styling! LOL! Well, I did. I really did. I learned, its best to dry cut in my natural state and to only snip the ends, or where it needs to be snipped.
I decided to section my hair and start in the back, pulling my curls to see how they fall and to snip the scraggly ends off, making sure I even it as much as possible. By the way, if you’re doing this by yourself, this is not a rat race. TAKE. YOUR. TIME. I was able to snip away the dead ends, probably only cutting a half an inch. Take a lot at how much I cut below.
I was amazed at how much I snipped and was able to keep my length, by just shaping my fro. I was able to maintain a cute shape and there was no shedding during my next styling! I promise to record my next trim!
Are you due for a trim?
