So, I bought some hair trimming scissors from target. Conair brand. I decided that they would be plenty sharp enough for a cut and if I decide after a use or two that they aren't anymore, then I will just buy another pair. I don't cut my hair often. I can't afford to shell out a couple hundred dollars - which is what I was looking at for true professional ones. It will take a long time to add up to that amount with these $10 scissors.

Anyway, I wanted a v-cut so I followed notaditdot (as always) and it turned out GREAT!!! Again, I have wavy hair - if it was a bit curlier, I may not cut my own...mainly because I would not have the patience to cut curl by curl!!
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
