Snip Snip - It's Trim Time
Since I'm an accountant, I usually perform my routine end maintenance right after the accounting quarter close. It's just easier for me to remember that way. The accounting quarter close happens every 3 months, so that's my cue to trim :-)
My Process for Trimming:
1) Twist hair in big or medium size twists (about 8-18 depending on how I'm feeling). My primary reason for twisting is to stretch the hair so that the ends are easier to see and cut.
This time I twisted an old wash and go that I had worn for 3 days and was starting to frizz. I spritzed with water and twisted up. Other times I'll put in the twist right after I wash my hair.
2) When twists are dry I then proceed to take them out. (I'll usually leave in overnight)
3) As I am taking out the twist I divide the unraveled twist into sections, and just clip clip. I would estimate that I cut about 1/4-1/2 inch off the ends.
That's all I do....it's not the most scientific way, but it works for me. Even with my non-scientific method my hair is still fairly even. Since I wear my hair curly 95% of the time it doesn't matter to me if my hair is perfectly even. I'm more concerned about the shape of the curly fro, over the super evenness when straightened.
