Now anyone who knows me well, knows that I don’t like cutting my hair.. I love my hair and hate hearing the clip of scissors and hate seeing the hair falling to the floor.. but when it has to be done, it has to be done.
Since I big chopped in 2014, I had not trimmed my ends and although I knew that it needed a trim, I tried so hard to try and get those ends to behave. But guess what, when the ends need to go, they gotta go… there is nothing you can do to repair them.
So last weekend I decided to toughen up and just get the trim done. I contracted my little sister *smile* to do the trim for me. I prepped my hair by keeping it in buns and chunky twists all week so as to keep it stretched. The day before I trimmed I put in some really tight braids to get it to stretch even more.
So it was time to trim, and I felt nervous. My sister said I made her nervous by being nervous hahaha…
But as the hair kept falling and I kept seeing those knots in the ends I knew that it was getting the treatment it needed…. and after the trim was done I actually felt the hair was much fuller than it was before the trim.. and guess what I did not lose as much as I thought I would have needed to.
So don’t be afraid to get those ends clipped, it just may be the best decision you make for the health of your hair..
