First ever tutorial. Please tell me what you think and whether you found this useful.
Tools & Products You Need:
1. Coconut Oil (£1.99 in Walthamstow)
3. Hair bands (to section your hair)
4. Combs (1 Rat-Tail, 1 Wide-Tooth, & 1 Denman Brush)
5. Mirror (not pictured)
Step 1: Section your hair
Use your rat-tail comb to part your hair. I did 3 parts on both sides so 6 sections in equal. This is a side shots of my sections.
Step 2: Pick your hair in your section
Pull your hair down to see the ends of your hair.
Step 3: Comb your hair with coconut oil
My tip is to never comb your hair dry. Put the coconut oil in before you comb it. When you comb each section before trimming, alternative with the wide tooth and the Denman for one section. E.G: One section = Denman & One section = Wide tooth.
I found this gave my hair texture and was especially good for the back of my hair, which is softer when brushed with a Denman.
Step 4: Trim your hair
Trim your hair in a linear way, holding the scissors straight. I took off half an inch from the front and cut the split ends too. In the back, I took 2″ off the two back sections because my hair was dry, brittle and the split ends were not sexy.
How much you take off is up to you but my way is to take more off the back and less in the front, because the front of my hair is healthy.
