Hair Update: I Trimmed My Ends

6:08 PM

A few weeks ago, while playing in my hair, I noticed my ends were a lot drier than usual.  Even after applying a moisturizer they still felt dry.  Unsure of what the cause was, I got my scissors out and got work.  Five or six twists at a time, I spritzed my ends with a conditioner mix (Water, Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose, Bee Mine Balanced Conditioner and EVOO) and gently combed out the ends.  Whatever pieces remained dry and rough were cut off.  I repeated that process throughout my entire head.

As you can see from the picture on the left I didn't cut that much hair, I only cut what needed to be cut.  Nothing more nothing less.  Hanging on to dead hair can only lead to so much more damage.  And yes, I could have waited until I took my twists down, but I really wanted to start 2010 fresh and healthy.  Carrying those dry ends into next year would have been like carrying dead, useless weight.  Besides, I already have proof that black hair can grow, so its no big deal :-)

Here are a couple pics after the trim...

  1. This is a cool trimming method. Maybe I should try that when I'm fully natural.
