    I love a good haircut! Unfortunately it doesn't happen nearly as often as it should so I gave up. I cut my own now.
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    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
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    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.

    Ml001: ill do a few snips for a trim or split ends myself but im afraid to do a whole cut myself lol

    I have a really good hair stylist. I get really nervous, but I do it every few months to keep my hair healthy. I used to freak out about the length, but I handle it better now than I used to.

    -Low poo (As needed): CVS Argan Oil Renewing Shampoo
    -RO: GVP The Detangler
    -Styling: LALSG
    -PT: ION Effective Care (seldom)
    *I have learned that sometimes less is more when it comes to my hair*

    I love going to my stylist (I heart you Kimbie!). She's a good friend and cuts great hair (not curly hair specific, but it looks good curly after she's cut it).

    Alas, I am in desperate need of a haircut or a trim or a shaping or whatever. She works in a salon that's 45 minutes away and happens to be through snowy canyon passes this time of year. I might have to break and go to one of the sister salons to a guy who has cut my hair before (fantastic, too...never had a bad haircut or color-when I chemically colored my hair-from any of these salons).

    Hello, my name is Sunshine and it has been something around 10 months since my last haircut...I think it's time I jumped back on the wagon. I need some serious layers to help with this length I'm unused to.

    Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

    There was a time when I'd rather go to the dentist than the hairdresser! I'm not quite so horrified these days but I'd never say I look forward to, or get excited about, a trip to the hairdresser.
    Glad you had a good experience.

    I'm glad you're excited. Hope it goes well for you.

    For me it used to be some combo of positive excitement and abject terror. Now it's a still that combo, but with a little more excitement than terror since finding a decent deva cut stylist.

    I love getting my hair cut. Right now I'm going pretty regularly, every 3 months or so, just for small trims to keep my shape looking good while I'm growing it out (trying to get to waist length!). But before that, I would go 6 months to a year between cuts, just so that when I did go in, I could cut tons of it off. There's something I really love about changing up the look of my hair that I just don't get from regular trims (I know this probably sounds weird, but I like seeing piles of hair on the floor - this scares most people, but I love it). I'm trying to force myself to keep it long to make my WL goal, but I have a feeling that once I get there, I'll be chopping it off right away, lol! But I do understand the fear of a bad hair cut - I had a terrible cut in high school that literally looked like 3 shelves of hair sticking out of my head (shudder). But I think I've gotten much better at communicating what I want since then, and haven't really had any major problems (even when I was just going to SuperCuts and getting a plain old wet cut). Now that I have a deva-trained stylist, I don't worry at all.
    2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
    fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
