My hair, along with the shedding, had developed a lot of split ends. I usually spot trim my hair every few months or when I see split ends. I was seeing split ends more often, so I had planned to do a trim of about an inch. I decided though to cut my hair to even it out. My hair was really long on the sides, short in the middle back part and a bit longer in the crown area. This made styling my hair difficult so I decided to cut it.
Ok, so before I cut my hair, I was checking out the length and celebrating my near armpit length. As I prepared to do a small trim, knowing how scissor happy I can get, I told myself it would just be an inch I’d trim off.
I then decided to cut my hair. I wanted to layer it in a way. So it was more even and if I wanted to rock an afro, it would be a proper halo instead of valleys and peaks.
Then I cut, trying to calm my excited fingers, hoping it all turns out ok. I ended up cutting about four inches off.
