    When was your last trim or cut? How much did you take off?

    When do you plan on trimming again?

    Hopefully we can keep up with our trim schedules and maintain thick healthy ends as a result.

    My last trim was Tuesday May 12 around 9pm. I trimmed about an inch.

    My plan is to trim again in July or August and keep my hemline thick as my hair grows. I can't deal with struggly ends anymore :nono:

    I use the Morrocco Method to coordinate the best time to trim my ends

    Yes. The numbers are dates during each specific month.

    I like the format on his site as well, but I hate entering my email address each time...

    It wasn't like that in previous years

    My last trim was in April, somewhere between the 16th and the 18th. Not sure the exact date. I took off 1/2"

    I plan on trimming again in June on either the 17th or the 18th. Hopefully I can get away with trimming only 1/4".

    My last trim was some time in January. I need to plan a trim some time soon. My ends are getting a little raggedy.

    Thinking back to my relaxed days I retained a lot of length doing trims every other month. I would relax (at the salon) and then do a self trim afterwards every 8-10 weeks. My kinda hair wasn't meant for long stretches :lachen:

    I used my Split Ender on March 20th. That about 8 weeks ago and my ends look pretty good. Before that it was Feb 16th (a diff of
    About 5 weeks). And before that I took off 1 1/2 inches on Jan 20th (about 6 weeks).

    My next trim will be in a few weeks when do my texturizer TU. I can really see the diff in my hair from that initial cut. My ends look great and I'm finally getting rid of those bone straight ends

    I had a trim on March 17...more like a dusting. I will get another trim around May 23, probably 1 inch.

    Have you noticed a growth spurt after your lunar trims?

    Last full trim of an inch was Dec. seek and destroy every 2 - 3 weeks. I well seek and destroy this week and determine if I need another dusting or trim.

    UPDATE: I washed my hair this weekend and my ends were raggedy. I trimmed about 1.5 inches and I probably need to trim another 1.5 inches, which I will do next month. I just don't understand why my ends were so bad when I keep my hair moisturized and in a protective style. This is extremely frustrating. :(

    No, I usually don't get a lot of them, but I had quite a few this time. What should I do to minimize them?

    Keep your hair stretched, shampoo in sections (or braids) and always detangle from the ends on up to prevent new knots.

    I use to do these trims years ago when I was relaxed and I did have awesome growth. I will try it now since I am natural and see how that goes!
