First, let's go back to the basics and get a understanding of what are split ends?! When you look at your natural hair, you will see 1 inch of the ends going in different directions. More than 1 inch is extreme!🙄 These split ends are normally due to heat damage or over processing from chemical treatments such as hair color and relaxers. Braids with synthentic hair fibers can also cause damage to the ends, being as though kanekalon braiding hair is a harsh material (synthetic fiber) and not human hair. And thats why our edges have to take the fall when we use that material.
Side note: I try my very best to braid my clients hair without synthetic fibers for their sewins and caps but some of them highly suggest it so I have to do what I'm paid to do.
Ok, so once we notice the ends going in different direction, intstead of taking action they get weak and break. Which is why your natural hair starts to shed.😳Yes, your hair still grows but the bad always out weighs the good. The ends begins to rise up like heat in August and causes your hair to grow out uneven and thin. Next thing you know 2 months has gone by and you cant understand why your hair is so thin and look frizzy and fragile. Probably because it's time for a trim. Yeah, so you feel like I'm just not going to pay $10 to cut something I don't even want cut or it's not even that serious. But when you go and try to press and curl your natural hair, it becomes very serious 'cause it look a mess after a hour of going through everything to get it done! It can't hold a curl and again it looks thin, frizzy, and flat. Where's the body? Where's the bounce at? Why don't it last??.....😥😤
Exactly why your trims are very important!!✂️
Your Hairstylist should always suggest one before and after every weave installment, just in case one day you need to wear your natural hair. Once a month is ideal for a trim, unless you're on a hair journey so than it'll be every 2-3 weeks until your natural hair get on track to once a month.
You'll save yourself a lot of money, time and trouble in the end! Oh, you'll look too good when its all done! 😊
