When I think of the glory days of my natural hair , I remember that cutting my hair then, my hair has not seen the growth that it experienced then. I do think this is in part to the fact I ebb and flow with taking care of it, so this did affect growth.
Does me trimming it actually f### up growth? I am wondering if this is the case.
Here are 3 reasons why I think it does mess it up:
1. ‘Bad’ scissors: I don’t have hairdresser scissors. Does this matter? Please confirm or deny!
2. Not knowing where to cut: I do cut off the split ends, but then sometimes I reckon, eff it, should I just chop the whole thing off?
3. Frequency: Some people say 8 weeks, some say every now and then — who has the answer?
Now, I am not saying this is the gold standard for everyone but I do think it is affecting me completely. In hindsight, why did I cut my hair in ’07 when it won’t grow the F back?
I know I need to continue trimming my hair because I don’t want split ends to kill growth but still, it’s a frustrating journey.
