It's the norm for naturalistas to want to DIY their natural hair. From shampooing to conditioning and styling, we try to give it the best VIP treatment we can (after summoning energy from our whole lineage).
But there's one thing in particular that most of us usually either fear, forget or postpone until our natural hair starts begging for dear help. And that is...drum rolls please, trimming.
The idea of cutting your hair is already terrifying. The idea of bringing scissors to the curls you work so hard to maintain -- even more terrifying.
However, skipping a trim or cut can cost you healthy locks. If you have a certain haircut, they are important because styles have to be maintained.
But more importantly, regular haircuts are the only way to get rid of those pesky split ends that are causing your ends to be fragile and frizz.
If you do not get a regular haircut to chop off your split ends your hair will not grow the way you want it to. Plus, if you feel like your hair looks frizzy or damaged, getting a haircut can help restore your healthy shine.
Even if you have curly hair you cannot skip a dreaded haircut, the deva cut (or curly cut) was born.
