Trimming Your Own Natural Hair- Why I Trim Mine

I trim my own hair from time to time. Sometimes because I wear my hair in its natural state the majority of the time, it’s hard to see if I have split ends. The sure way for ME to tell when I need a trim is when I do two strand twists and the bottom doesn’t curl at the end of the twists. If its raggedy or jagged and just looks janky at the bottom, I know it’s time for a trim! Also, when I get those balls of hair toward the end, I know it’s time to cut them off.

So I was re-doing my twist out (on dry hair)  this weekend and saw my ends weren’t looking hot so I pulled out the scissors and clipped the bad ends. I didn’t do it to every twist because some of the ends seemed fine. I am a “Search & Destroy” type of person so I don’t just trim all of my hair. I trim what needs to be “destroyed”.

Here are my twists:

And here is the hair I cut:

Not too much hair but I could totally tell the difference when I took my dry twist out out the next day!

Do you trim your own hair from time to time?

    I’ve started doing mine too, but it may be overkill because every time I twist I analyze my ends lol!
