|Why getting a baby trim or dusting the ends is not enough
|a baby trim was just not enough this time
Yes the split ends make your hair look longer! But do not be fooled, that is all that they do for you because they definitely do not make the hair healthier. In fact, when you continue to procrastinate on getting your ends trimmed, all they do is continue to split up the hair shaft. As a result your ends look very frayed and wiry. They do not even match the rest of your hair. For this client, I initially gave her a "trim" but it had been so long since she had one that it simply was not enough. I showed her what it looked like to have a trim then explained to her that she still needed more cut. She was not opposed to me cutting and had already been thinking about doing a bob so she used this opportunity to just go for it.

Look at what a difference a trim made!
I did not even put anymore heat in her hair either. Getting all of the split ends off made her hair look instantly healthier from the root to the ends. To maintain this healthy look she will get her ends trimmed every three months instead of waiting years.
Her hair now actually moves freely, it shakes, and has lots of body. And remember, I did not put any more heat in it from before I did the initial trim. Cutting the rest of the dead ends off made the hair fall into place.
Even this client noticed a big difference. She likes the look of healthy hair much better.
