Layers and dusting
Mar 24th, 2009 at 3:58am
 
I have layers in my hair, and I was wondering if doing my own dusting and S&D is going to make my ends look really weird?  I go to the stylist regularly to have split end trims, but I'm kind of afraid of doing it myself.  Should I just get my layers cut out?  It seems like a lot of people here are anti-layering.  Tongue  I don't want to sacrifice a lot of my length right now.  Can I still have layered hair and have it healthy?

While everyone has an opinion about layering,I'm sure everyone would agree that hair at any length, as long as it's healthy is a must.
If you feel uncomfortable with dusting your own hair,then as long as you trust your stylist,have him or her do it!
The choice is yours when it comes down to it. Wink

What is dusting?  And S&D?  Have only been a member for a few days and can't figure these out.  Thanx

Dusting and S&D (search and destroy) are terms used when a person trims just the damaged part of a hair strand.  This is a tedious process done by sectioning the hair into small groups, looking at all the end and using a very sharp scissor to cut any splits, bursts, or knots off the hair strand.  "Dusting" comes from the trimmings when doing this - you will have a light dusting of hair that was trimmed off.

Probably long layers. I had a lot of layers put in a few months ago and my hair looks skimpier than ever Sad so now I have to grow it out. I plan to have hubby carefully trim (straight across the bottom) 1/4 to 1/2 an inch off every other month to help out...
