|top sign that your natural hair needs a trim|
If you look at the picture above and the picture below, it is very obvious to spot the split ends when the hair is straight. When the hair is curly, you can tell in the detangle process. When the hair gets very hard to detangle on the ends that is a clear sign that the ends are splitting. You can tell when the comb goes through easily from the scalp to the mid-shaft, but when you get to the ends it gets extremely tangled, that is a clear indicator that it is time for a trim. The comb should go all the way through the hair smoothly.
This client had not had a trim in over a year. Yes the split ends make the hair look longer but they also make the hair not look healthy. Once the hair has had a trim, you can see immediately see how much healthier the hair looks. I recommend getting a trim at least every three months on average. The longer you wait to get a trim, the split ends will only continue to split up the hair shaft meaning you will have to get more cut.
Luckily this client did not care how much needed to be trimmed. Her only concern was that all the split ends were gone and that her hair looked healthy. She had been looking for a hairstylist and found me online so she jumped on the opportunity to come get her hair right. So, this was her first appointment and she was pleased! Her hair had lots of body and bounce. All she would need to do is wrap it and it will last until she wets it again.
