Maintaining Healthy Ends
When I first started wearing my natural hair out i noticed that a lot of my styles looked messy and limp, and I realized that this was because my ends were in terrible condition. Although damaged ends are less obvious on naturally curly/kinky hair, they can really affect the look of twistouts/braidouts or any out style.
Some people prefer to trim their hair on set schedule and this works for them. However, I have found that dusting my ends regularly is the best for me. It keeps my ends from ever getting to the stage where it causes more breakage to the rest of my hair.
What I do - whenever my hair is in twists (i.e. when I am washing it or doing a twist-out) I inspect the ends of the twists. If I see that there is significant thinning like it pictured above, I trim.
So far, I have needed to do this dusting about once a month. As you can see above, I never have to cut a significant amount of hair and I haven’t noticed any difference in length retention from doing this. If I find that my hair is particularly damaged, I will do a bigger trim to make sure any split ends are definitely gone.
Natural Hair || How I Trim My Hair In 20 Minutes
"Today I will be showing you how I trim my curly hair. This technique is similar to my last trimming video. The only difference is that I twist my hair before I trim it so that I can have more control over the area that I trim.
There are so many ways to trim your natural curly hair. You can flat iron, trim it while it is twisted, or blow it out. I prefer this method since it is following the curly girl method and I lose less hair.
I like to trim my hair every 6-8 months. My very first trim was 18 months post bc.
I suggest purchasing scissors that are used for hair only. I purchased my scissors from Wal-Mart in the hair care section.
I ALWAYS trim my hair dry. Doing this will ensure that I do not cut too much off. If you’re uncomfortable trimming your hair yourself I suggest contacting a professional to trim your hair for you :)”
