Default How to clip split ends with curly hair?

Ive decided I want to try and clip my own ends from now on... to prevent stylist from cutting it to short.. But i have no clue how! Do I cut it while its dry or wet? I heard cutting it wet be misleading because your hair is longer when wet, and you can cut off to much..


I and I that if you wet your hair, rake your fingers from root to end, and feel roughness towards the end, than you cut that rought part off because those are split ends..

How do you cut your hair??

Thanks!

Recently saw this article on clipping split ends:

The Art of Dusting- Trimming Natural Hair | Curly Nikki | Natural Hair Styles and Natural Hair Care

Maybe it will help.

Default Dusting your split ends

I do it all the time. Sit with a light or sunlight over your right shoulder. Pull out sections of hair, aim up to light to reveal split and nip it off with a good pair of scissors. I still get haircuts but no one hair cut can ever reach all the splits ( or white dots, whch are pre splits) which may be in different places on your head. I listen to Youtube videos or tv while doing this .

oh, I'm confused. I just started dusting but I was using Waterlily716's method (for single strand knots).

But I thought split ends were the end of a singe strand of hair that's split or broken?

This article makes it sound like if you take a bunch of hair, pull them straight, twist them that whatever hair pops out of the twist is a split end? I don't get that.

Yeah no - don't do that. The hairs that stick out are just a different length - not split. You'll know a split end when you see one.

Here's an article that explains and shows the different types of splits:
The Long Hair Community Discussion Boards - Damaged Hair: Understanding, Preventing & Rehabilitating

As far as trimming, I use the CreaClip & use the methods shown in their tutorials on their site. www.creaclip.com It shows how to do all the different hemline shapes and how to do layers. You can also follow the same methods by using a covered elastic in place of the CreaClip and just sliding the elastic down.

I don't get this either. Is this technique suppose to be done on straight hair? I feel like If I did this on curly hair I would be cutting too much.
