    Might as well keep track of the times where I actually trim my hair. Considering I haven’t in like...3 years.

    My latest trim was a couple of weeks towards the end of July. It was rather involuntary but I think I trimmed nearly an inch or right at an inch.

    I did a rollerset yesterday and then blow dried on high to stretch my roots. I trimmed tonight. Not sure how much I took off. It was probably between 1/4 to 3/4 inch. Then I did a search and destroy with the splits I could still feel.

    As my hair gets a little longer it is getting easier to dust my ends. My back is still a struggle but I have something to look forward to next year.

    With regular search and destroys I am able to stick to my every 4 month dusting schedule. I will dust again in December.

    After that color it was time for a trim. I took off 1/2 inch all around. Today is a beautifying day :gorgeous:

    I know I just trimmed last week, but i trimmed an inch off my ponytail today. The left side is still slightly longer and more blunt, but I will even it up at the end of the year. Today is a strengthening day.

    I blow dried my hair Friday night. That helped me really access my splits better. So I did a search and destroy. It was thorough but I got at least 50%.

    I will straighten next month and then use my split ender. That should be good enough for my ends.

    I guess early December I need to do a protein and amino acid treatment to get ready for the heat.

    47D40F16-BDF2-4BBC-9A58-48530E234FC5.jpeg I just trimmed about an inch to even up my ends I should be good until August. I plan to get a split ended for my birthday in June. Today was a lengthening day.

    Yes ma’am. I don’t trust people like that. I’ve been wanting a professional cut though lately.

    Sorry for all the typos, I clearly wasn't paying attention. Thats how I am at this time and I got a major cut in Jan 2019 and want a dusting. Maybe I will need to do it myself but hell I don't trust me either

    Cut my hair into a bob on June 7th. I guess I’m neck length. I plan to keep this style for a while too.
