Well, I have been pondering a while about how I should measure my hair. At first, I was measuring curly because when I measured my hair, it was the same wet and dry.

However, I have been watching my hair and have concluded that I should start measuring my hair either wet or pulled so I get an accurate measurement. My hair is starting show me that when it dries it curls up. This is no big deal. I know I have said otherwise in previous posts, but things change and this is one of those changes.

I like to measure when my hair is wet simply because it's easier to get a baseline measurement from month to month. When my hair is dry, frizz, waves, or curls can vary my length too much to figure out what's going on.

I have found this to be true as well. I can see, now that it is a little longer, how much it actually curls up when dry.

I was supposed to have a trim today but my stylist fell and injured her foot and cannot stand or walk, so I had to reschedule for the 29th of this month. I am not sure if I will go then because I may not be able to afford it. We will see.

I will also measure my hair differently. My hair shrinks as it dries so I will be measuring both stretched and curly. I will not declare my goals until I have reached them curly.

Everything is going well with my hair it is a lot softer and is starting to get long. My hair is in the best condition and very shiny.  Cheesy

I was scheduled for a trim today; however, I am unable to afford it. I have no idea when I will be able to afford it again. This is good news because my hair will have no choice but to grow!

I did experiment a little with my wash routine. Instead of oiling my hair in the shower before I washed it, I oiled it when it was dry and then washed. I also used more deep conditioner and less regular conditioner. I do like the results, but the front is a bit dry. I suppose I can oil the front and top and leave the rest. We shall see.

I usually oil the nite before I shampoo, and only where my hair needs it, which is usually the ends.  I shampoo & condition every 3 or 4 days, and deep condition every other week.

Over a month ago I was supposed to have a trim, however that did not work out and I cannot afford one at this time. So it has been about four months since my last trim and my ends can only tolerate a three-month span before the ends split and tangle. I decided that I would do a self-trim and see how it worked out. I have curly hair so I chose to trim it dry. What I did was find all the hairs that were frayed, dry, brittle, and split at the ends and trimmed them to the rest of the length. I am happy with the results because I did not lose much length and my ends feel great. I do not think I will be doing this for the long term, but when it is my only option and my hair really needs it, I think that it is okay. I am not very good at trimming my own hair and I know that I will eventually muck it up so the next time will be with my hairdresser. Anyway, I just wanted to share my good news.

That's great to hear about your self trim!  Alot of people are hesitant about doing it,but glad to hear yours went well!  Maybe sharing your good experience will get some to try it themselves!
