To cut or not to cut?

TjaneeTjanee Posts: 50Registered Users
hey ladies. I'm new to this site and have been wanting to get the bc for about a week now. I haven't had a perm since april and am tired of the two textures.

My question is what could go wrong if I cut my own hair? Am I better off letting my natural cousin do it (she's been busy and had to postpone a few times)? :dontknow:

    If you don't trust yourself to do it, let someone else do it. I cut my own hair and ended up cutting 1inch to much. lol. But it was all good.

    I suggest to let your cousin do it, but if you just can't take it anymore (and trust me I understand), then do what you feel is best. Nothing bad will happen if you do it yourself, you may not be even all over, (mines wasnt) but you can always get it shaped up.

    Thanks for answering:cool: I was beginning to think no one would answer for fear of messing me up. I think I'll give it a try tonight.
