So, I confess. I am not a fan of trimming. If my ends are really knotted and uneven, I’ll snip off a half inch or so… but that only happens, like, once every 6 months.
I’ve heard a variety things about cutting and trimming. Some people say it’s a magical secret to growth… some people say it stops split ends from traveling down the hair shaft… some people don’t think it makes a difference.
I’ve met a lot of ‘scissor happy’ women on my natural journey… which always strikes me as odd since getting afro textured hair to grow can be such an ordeal. But I am certainly not a hair professional, and I’m still learning healthy hair practices.
So what do you think?
Is trimming/cutting imperative for the natural woman?
