Trimming Natural Hair
Since I've been natural the topic of trimming has been one of the most complex that I've come across. When I first went natural I would trim every two months like clock work, based on the fact that I didn't like how my ends felt.(Not a full proof technique, but its what I did.) For some reason my ends would get this dry crispy feel no matter how much I moisturized or sealed. So I would twist my hair and trim my ends. After many online discussions with naturals who'd been at this for a while, I found that a LOT of women were not trimming the ends of their hair at all, but simply preserving them to maintain their length. I was told that by trimming my ends so often that I was cutting off my progress, or that I could be trimming off perfectly good hair? I also noticed many women were growing their hair nicely with this practice, so I continued to seal and protect. This seemed to be working, I had a good 7 month stretch, and then the dry crispy rough ends returned....
