Had to let these ends go! Healthy ends mean more length retention and I’m looking for length over these next six months :)
Last night I did my four section cut (which I’ve talked about before on here). This is what I do when I ‘four section’ trim:
- I section my hair horizontally and vertically, resulting in four sections
- I then pull two sections at a time taut (first the bottom two, then top two) and cut across one section at a time, ensuring that they are (relatively) the same length
This results in a blunt cut and supplements my constant search and destroy sessions.
I felt fine with my cut last night, but saw my ponytail today and still wasn’t feeling satisfied. When your ends feel crunchy and like straw, that’s always a bad sign. My personal tell-tale is when I rub my hair together whether it makes a sound. If I can hear it, it needs to go! So since I didn’t like the look, feel, or sound of my ends, I cut some more off!
This time I divided my hair into two sections (made a vertical part), pulled down the sections, and cut across. My hair feels better now :) will send a pic of my ponytail tomorrow! Peace y’all!
