So how do I trim my hair? I still use the twist n clip method shown in this video: twist n clip. I have come across some blogs that advise people against using this method of hair trimming. Some say that it’s best to blow dry the hair and trim it. Others suggest trimming it while it’s wet. Still, others say only have a professional trim your hair. My hair does not like being blow dried. When it is blow dried, I end up with dry crispy ends. I also do not trust myself with scissors on loose, wet hair (yikes). I’m definitely not very interested in going to a salon to have my hair trimmed.
The thing about this whole hair journey is that you have to do what’s best for you. My advise is to find a method that works for you and roll with it. I have had good results with the twist n trim method, so this is what I’ve been doing.
Please note: I would not recommend this method if you are trying to actually shape your hair. I would leave that to the professionals. This is only a means of trimming off a bit of the ends. When I use this method, I’m not worried about the hair being slightly uneven, because my hair shrinks and curls up anyway.
Here are my results:
These twist were done on freshly washed moist hair.
After washing, I rubbed Coconut Oil all over my hair. Then I began parting my hair in sections, applying ORS Lock N Twist Gel to each section.
After twisting a section, the very end of each twist was trimmed, resulting in neatly trimmed two-strand twists.
I love the way my twists look after they have been trimmed.
I had to include a few pictures of the twists accessorized a bit with earrings.
My twists are not long enough to style yet, so for now I have to settle for other means of dressing up my look. These pictures were taken just before my family and I left for an after birthday dinner at Benihana (I love Benihana!!)
