It has been about 2 weeks since I trimmed the ends of my hair. I was very hesitant about doing so because I had been having a hard time keeping my hair properly moisterized. I felt why should I trim and then have my hair dry out on the ends again? Then I tried using coconut oil to protect and moisterize my hair and have been having great success! So I went ahead and trimmed about 3/4 of an inch off of the twists that I had been wearing. I am happy about the results. My hair looks and feels so much better than before. My twists look so much healthier even though they are shorter, and my afro puff looks better as well. I can comb my puff out more without having to pat it down so much just to shape it.
The pictures below are of my hair after shampooing and conditioning with Trader Joe’s products, so it still slightly wet and uncombed and completely shrunken. My hair shrinks about 100% of its length, maybe even more! I have classic CNapp hair! Then the other pictures are after putting my shea butter coconut oil blend in and double strand twisting.
I actually took all these pictures in the same setting. Those pictures where my hair looks so red are the close ups that my camera didnt do an automatic flash, so the lighting is just from the bathroom light.
So all in all I’m very happy and satisfied with the results of the trim and how healthy my hair looks, and will make sure to trim my hair regularly. What I need to do now is find another hairstyle to add to my repetoire! Afro puff and those 15 twists is slightly tired!
