Let Go of Those Damaged Ends!

Are you holding on to dead, dry-brittle, see through thin end? Why? Ladies don’t hold on to  those raggedy thin ends just to have some length.  Whether your ends are damaged from coloring, excessive heat use, chemical damage,  brittle-dry, full of single strand knots (SSKs) or just split ends there’s no point in holding on to them you’re  only holding your hair back. Unhealthy ends just doesn’t look good either. I know you’ve seen it before, a lady wearing her hair down or in a ponytail and it may be considered a “nice length” but her ends were see through and split, now you don’t want to walk around with your hair looking like that just to to have a little length do you? Once you let go of those damaged and unhealthy ends and stay consistent to your regimen and moisturizing your hair it will grow back in no time GUARANTEED.

There’s a lot of controversy when it comes to how often you should trim your ends. Some people would say every 4 to 8 weeks some would say every 8 to 12 weeks and so on. From my own experience in my journey and own opinion, I feel the  only reason would you have to trim your hair every few or several weeks is when you are consistently flat ironing and blow drying your hair and/or inadequately caring for your ends, if so you will at some point start to see some split ends, breakage, brittle-dry ends, ends that wont hold definition and/or start to form single strand knots and those are signs it’s time for a trim.

I’ve found that since I stopped using heat almost two years ago I don’t trim often at all.  I’ve only done two major trims with some dusting here and there. So if you’re not using heat and you’re moisturize your ends properly chances are you will not need to trim your ends every 4 to 8 or 12 weeks because your ends are in good condition. Other than that you are just cutting off the length you’ve retained. Now don’t get me wrong your ends split from daily wear and tear from styling, protective styling has helped me with this.

On the other hand if you are holding on to damaged, split, unhealthy ends you are only going to cause yourself to have to cut off more hair later down the line because the ends will only get worse splitting further up the hair shaft and eventually breaking off. So just let it go ladies. The schedule you decide for your trims are up to you, you know your hair and what kind of condition it’s in because you’ve been the one taking care or not taking care of your hair so you will definitely know when it’s time to trim. Once you spot the signs that it’s time for a  trim, you should do it right away you’ll trim less hair if you don’t wait.

Here are some pics of my hair last year,  after I did  my first major trim I finally got irritated with my ends not holding definition and cut off all my heat damage. My hair took off after that trim. So ladies please just let them go, your hair will grow back I PROMISE!
