Whether you're in the midst of a hair-mergency or you’re looking to save on your salon bills, you may find yourself in a position where you need to trim your own hair. With so many professional methods and the individual needs of your unique curl pattern, learning the tricks of this trade can be overwhelming. Fortunately, we here at NaturallyCurly have compiled our list of the most popular methods to trim your hair so you can get the job done without giving yourself an accidental TWA.
Search and destroy
The search and destroy is a great option for curlies who do not need a full trim and just want to do some general maintenance and get rid of pesky single strand knots and split ends. The search and destroy method can be done in two ways. One of the ways to do this method is in front of a cosmetic magnification mirror. Grab small sections of your hair and hold it close to the mirror. The magnified image should make it easier to see any damaged ends. After you’ve identified a damaged section simply trim it off and move onto the next section.
Another method involves running your fingers through your hair to feel for damage like rough ends and single strand knots. Once you've felt some damage use your hair shears to trim it off. It is best to do this method whilst you’re doing something like watching one of your favourite shows as it can be time consuming.
