My December 2014 Trim


I have been religiously trimming my hair since my big chop in August 2013 but since the mid-2014, I slacked on my hair trimming rituals.  I noticed lots of single strand knots which made detangling hair a major task for me. Even my twist outs and bantu knot outs come out with raggedy ends. I knew I needed a trim badly yet I kept postponing the trimming schedule Until one November night, I brought out my mirror, armed with my spray bottle, hair products , comb and scissors and I was ready to trim. I trimmed a lot of hair. I’m talking about 1 inch if not more.  After trimming, looking at my now healthy looking hair, I was glad I had the ends were even, neat and held up twist and braids well. My out styles provided lots of definition plus I got more compliments anything I wore twists outs.

    I have never gotten a trim *hides face in shame*

      Lol…And you’ve retained so much. That’s really impressive. I don;t think my hair would have retained so much length if i hadn’t incorporated trimming to my regimen.

    your hair is beautiful…
    trimming just sets me back. :(, makes no difference.


    • nafisah says:

      Awwn..Thanks. But Are you sure you aren’t trimming too much. I believe you shouldnt trim more than one inch a year and no more than 3 times a year.


  3. Your hair looks so healthy. I just recently got a trim and I’m still sulking about it, but it was needed.

    That blow out + straightened hair ❤
    You did the twist & trim method too, no?
    If you did, I used that method as well lastweek Wednesday and it works great, not fool proof but worth it.
