Cutting away split ends!

I hate getting haircuts! I love my hair long and I just hate going into a hair salon and saying "I just need a trim" and you end up with a whole different hair cut! I try to cut my own split ends every month. (I was constantly cutting my own hair in high school so I'm not afraid of chopping away at my own hair, however, if you are, you should probably just go get it done!)

First take a strand of hair and twist it all the way down. You may notice a ton of hairs sticking out on the sides if you have layered hair. You're going to want to cut the down the twisted strand to get the ends of those layered hairs as shown by the black dotted line (I don't always bother with those hairs.) Next you can just cut straight across on the bottom.

Next, take that same strand of hair and loop it. This will expose all of the other little hairs that might have been caught in the twisting. Cut the ends of those hairs. Finally, loop to the other side so that the rest of the hidden hairs are also cut down.

Repeat on the rest of your hair. Although it seems like it might be very time consuming, it's not! I did this today and took about five minutes :)

Also painted my nails today! I LOVE these nail polishes because they last me about a week without chipping when I top it with a Sally Hansen anti-chip top coat! For some reason this color has been a hit! I've gotten tons of compliments on it O_O it's nuts!

  4. I have heard many a terrible "trim" story. I haven't had that experience so I still go to my salon to get a reg trim. I don't trust myself enough to cut my own hair are a brave girl.... :)
