Hey y'all so this past weekend I decided to get a trim. Dealing with split ends is the most difficult part of any hair-care routine. It doesn't matter if your tresses are straight as an arrow or curly. If you want healthy hair, regular trims are essential. But what exactly does “regular” mean?
You've probably heard different numbers thrown around. First, it’s important to know that no one is exempt from experiencing split ends. Even if you religiously follow all of the hair-care rules to a tee, your ends will eventually break. I have coily hair. If you have coily hair... With curly and coily hair, oils have to travel further to get to the ends. And dry ends equal split ends.
That's why retaining moisture is not optional. Co-washing will help to keep your hair moisturized. Add protective styles (think braids and buns) to your routine and practice low manipulation (keeping combing, brushing, and styling to a minimum). And you'll be able to stretch trims up to 8 to 12 weeks. Think of your hair as fiber or as a cashmere sweater. You wouldn't drag your hands over a delicate cardigan 100 times, so make sure you're being just as gentle with your hair when you comb and style it.
