My first hair trim post BC

Hi there,
  I have been dealing with split ends and several single strand knots for a while and rather than hold on to them in a bid to retain length I'd rather let them go. After much thought I have decided to trim my hair myself (how hard can it be?) Its better to trim your hair when its stretched. For a natural lass like myself that means my hair should be straightened either with heat (flat iron or blow dryer) or without heat (threading, banding, twisting ,braiding or manually stretching the hair while its wet)
I don't intend to use heat on my hair so I'm going with manually stretching my wet hair.There were some shots I couldn't capture  so I'll explain the best way I can. Here we go:

I co washed my hair

I put my hair in small sections

I took one section and detangled with a wide tooth comb, then I brushed
 the hair and held the part I wanted to trim off. I cut just above my fingers
As you can see the cut hair are not even. Hazards of cutting your hair yourself I guess

The whole lot of trimmed away hair

I put the freshly trimmed hair in 5 sections then moisturised and sealed each one

I got 2 nylon bags

1 cut them into squares

I wrapped each section's ends with the nylon squares. This is called Baggying.

Frontal view

Tools I used


Sharp scissors

Wide tooth comb

Hair bands to hold the bags in place

 I wont advice you to try this at home if you want a perfect cut. Overall I'm glad I got rid of my split ends after all health first then length right?

Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
