Dusting, Trimming, and Hair Update

It’s been about a month since my relaxer, and I’m still on a love/hate relationship with my hair.  I enjoyed it right after I relaxed, but stupid me forgot to do a hard protein treatment the next week, so I had tons of breakage and shedding.  I’ve had that for a while, but I was finally tired of it.  So last week I used the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment, and that worked nicely to decrease the breakage.

Another source of my breakage was split ends.  My hair has grown past should length, but I wasn’t happy with my ends at all.  They were disgusting, but I didn’t have the cash right now to get it done at my usual salon.  So, I decided to try my hand at it myself.  Actually, I’ve wanted to do it for months now, I even bought hair shears and everything, but I was incredibly scared of screwing up.  Yesterday, I decided to suck it up since my hair desperately needed it, so I watched tons of videos on dusting and trimming and did it myself.  Here is the main one I used for those of you that are interested:

So far, I like how it turned out.  I’m still past shoulder length, but my wispy, thin ends are finally gone.   Now I’m set on babying them and to retain some length that I can be proud of.

I bought a ton of new things that I’ll review as I try them out some more.  They’re on the sidebar if you want to see what they are, and if anyone wants a review on something faster, just give me a heads up 🙂
