I trim my hair once a season when straightening. However, last week I shaped my curls for the first time, using a modified pony method. I then when on a search and destroy to even the layers up...my hair hates cuts, so im wearing protective styles until my hair settles in...but it looked great and feels even better!! I love that I had the control to forego cutting any length, cuz stylists NEVER listen. Last time I went to the salon, I said "don't thin", well...she put away the thinning shears, but continued to thin my hair razor style with scissors. I did not really understand what happened after feeling my new barely there hair, until I did some research after getting home. THIS is why I will now cut my own hair...
