Hey Curly Naturals,
This is just a quick post on how I trim my hair.
I try and trim every 4-6 weeks sometimes the frequency is further apart depending on my schedule and how my hair feels. The front part of my hair used to be very dry, one day I just decided to trim it after my umpteenth deep conditioner that did not make a difference, after that the front piecey of hair does not know dryness anymore.
I go through my normal hair day routine and a good deep conditioning, where you pre poo the night before bring out the expensive stuff and leave it on for a good coupe of hours.
For me a good deep conditioning is essential, in order to see which parts are dry and just need a little TLC see which ones need to be chopped.
Next I condition my hair with my old Tresemme naturals stock (I’ll need to find an alternative soon, but that’s another day’s worry)
I then part my hair in the middle and make 2 strand twists.
Once the twists are set the
chopping trimming starts.
I take my fore finger and thumb and work my way down the twist the point where it starts to feel dry is when I make the cut.
Sometimes I take the twists apart and inspect each loc and do a further trim.
Once I’m done I gently unravel the twist and apply the rest of my loc method. I generally like leaving my hair in protective styling just for it to rest and get some extended tlc and for my (new) ends to be gently ushered into the world.
