Signs your Natural Hair needs a Trim

Hello Naturalistas!! 

How was your holiday? I hope you had a lovely one and got the time to pamper your hair like it needed? Today, we would look at signs that your natural hair needs a trim.

Natural Hair, Trimming
If you are anything like me, the idea of trimming your hair won't be very pleasant. I'd rather cut it all off(Which I just did btw) than trim it. The main reason is because, I just wanted length and not heath. Another reason I never did trim my hair was because, I didn't know when to do it so, only got my hair trimmed once last year at the O'Natural's salon but I have learnt that in other for my hair to thrive, there has to be trimming off of unhealthy ends.

Here are signs that your hair needs a trim

- Knots
- Breakage
- Split ends
- Tangles

While some of these can be fixed with better hair care, when you start have them too often, it's probably time to get a trim so your hair can thrive. It is advised to get a trim at least 3-4 times in a year and less for those that let their hair breathe (No hands-in hair syndrome) and are manipulating their hair alot less.

Look at it like pruning. After a tree is pruned, it thrives. Trimming the hair regularly will even help avoid further damage to your hair.

How do you know when YOU need a trim?

    2. Dusting means trimming off very little ends of your hair in such a way that it looks like dust on the floor. It is done more often than trimming and requires a really good shear.
