After Sareca's Thread Post your end of year progress pics, I realized that my hair is long, but not as healthy or thick as 2006. The last 3 or 4 inches were so thin I could see right through them. Since they were thin and not split I was going to just dust a little at a time until it was all thick again. After seeing those pictures I decided to just go ahead and cut them off. I have never trimmed my own hair, so I'm proud of myself :grin:!! I went from midback to barely brushing brastrap in less than 10 minutes. I took off anything I could see through. I'm very happy with how it turned out and I'm going to baby my ends from now on. I'm sure with all the great information and the wonderful ladies on LHCF 2008 will bring great things for me and my hair. I joined the 2008 bootcamp so no more cutting until 2009 only dusting, I get to start out with healthy, thick ends. Sorry for the rambling, I just LOVE this site it's so empowering!! HHG ladies!

Great job :up:

Yes, going from see-through to nice thick ends makes a world of difference. I just did a big trim myself, so I totally understand. :yep:

Your hair looks beautiful...thick and healthy...and still long.

This is what I plan to do in a couple of months, after my relaxer. I have been transitioning from relaxed to texlaxed and trimming gradually. I've still got about 2" of see-through ends left that I want to cut off all at once; then I'll be 100% texlaxed.

You've inspired me to actualy look forward to the little chop.


Goal:Hip length stretched

Exactly! It looks so thick and full. This is what I'm striving for...reach a goal, surpass the goal, then trim for that full look!

:drool: The ends look fabulous! :love2:
And it doesn't really look much shorter, but it does look thicker.

Wow! It looks so much better now! I think I'm going to do the same thing and make sure to take extra care so I wouldn't have to cut so much again lol

Your hair is so beautiful. I plan of doing the same when my top layers get to a certain length, and I will gradually cut off the see-thru ends. Your pic is very inspirational.

you did a great job! your hair looks extra thick!

i really don't like having see-through ends. Retaining hair is stressful as it is, I don't want to have to worry myself to death about the state of ALREADY-damaged ends.
