how to trim hair yourself

forest13forest13 Posts: 27Registered Users
Hello everyone,

I'm trying to grow my hair and so came looking into this board for advice. Please tell me how I should manage my hair (cutting, trimming) without going to a hairdressers. I mean do you just keep an eye on all your curls and just chop off any split ends you see? if you trim your hair, do you do it one curl at a time?

    I suggest a book haircutting for dummies, but there are loads of ways to trim curly hair.

    I've been cutting my own hair for about 30 years. Whenever I feel like it needs freshened up, I just trim off each curl independently. I always cut my hair dry.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.
