Alright guys – I know yal hadn’t told me – yal be tryna be nice. But my ends were THROUGH. I have known for awhile bu t last time I did my hair, I couldn’t even unravel my twists without snagging at the end of everyone. Which creates frizz. Which makes me mad af. Day 1 of a twist out I usually have beautiful coiled end. Look at these:
Some of yal will say it looks fine. It didn’t, and it didn’t FEEL fine either. Super dry and rough and I was losing a lot more hair during wash day because of the comb snagging on the ends of my hair.
I was spending a lot of time bunned up because of that haha.
My last haircut was like May 2016 during a DevaCurl hair show when I got a free cut. I loved my shape so much I didn’t want to tweak it. And I usualy do a little trim anytime I straighten my hair but I haven’t in soooooo long. I may have done a slight trim in like Nov 2016.
Yal I’m straight disrespectful and neglectful to my hair.
Aywho, I decided it was time. And considering this took me all of an extra maybe 5 mins it’s a shame I put it off so long. I followed my usual Wash Day routine and set my hair for a braidout. I think I had about 12-15 braids. Look at the ends of them – yal I was soooo over these ends by this point.
I coiled each one like usual and got to snippin. I cut off the whole ununiformed part of the coil. Basically I chopped about 1/2 to 1 inch off like I didn’t even care.
These are the remnants.
For maximum curl-poppage – I wore the braids all day wednesday in my signature 2 flat twist.
And then on thanksgiving I spent the morning transforming sweet potatoes and then transforming my hair
YAL LOOK AT MY ENDS ok ok!!!!
Literally can’t tell me that my hair ain’t lit. Looks AND feels like 1,000 x better than before the cut. Like a whole different head of hair. And it took me way less time to take my braids down because the ends weren’t difficult.
I’m hoping that it will make for a much less frustrating (and gross -i HATE shed hair in the shower) wash day next week.
I literally can’t stop touching it haha.
I know there are areas of my hair that are shorter that didn’t get clipped. I honestly really need another devacut but the nearest stylist is an hour or so away an I’m lazy. Maybe come January I’ll schedule an appointment… I’ll have a lot more time then.
If not? I’ll get a better trim during my annual hair straightening (which should have been this month but again – I’m lazy!)
How do you clip your ends?
