I self-trim. I never go to a salon anyore, I don't trust them. They don't know how to treat hair, don't know anything about ingredients, and cut off way too much.
I trim by the search & destroy method. That means you take some time to examine your hair for split ends and only cut off the split ends. Btw, here's a pic that explains are different types of splits.
Once you have a split of any kind it's best to cut it off right away. Nothing can repair a split (only temporarily glue together), and it will only keep splitting further up your hair strand.
Edit: Oh and remember, you need a trimming scissor. Regular scissors aren't sharp enough and will therefore damage your hair more. Good trimming scissors are sharp and will leave your hair undamaged.
