I can’t tell you how many sisters I know who are dying for a decent hair cut — – including myself. I generally get a hair trim once every two years or more. This leaves me so frustrated, I love my hair and try to take good care of it. I moisturize my ends frequently, give hot oil treatments and I use various oils before and after my showers to try and help keep it shiny and luscious. I will post on these tips later insha Allah ;)
Only Allah knows if these treatments really work, as going without the proper hair trims you really can’t tell. So, I have decided to post on how to trim hair and I have began to trim my families hair. They are my guinea pigs, lol. So I cut the kids hair last night and it looks pretty good, maasha Allaah. After watching these videos and applying their techiniques I think I will get better and better. Who knows, maybe I will even be able to cut the sisters hair in my community and do a pretty good job, insha Allah ;)
Before, I go further I must ask you do you know the rulings for women cutting their hair? No, then look here.
So, trimming your hair means to cut the dead hair which is at the bottom. It gives your hair a new look too. You should always get your hair trimmed after every 4 to 6 weeks.
Step by step instructions to trim your own hair:
- First spray your hair with a little water to make them wet.
- Then hold about 10-13 section of hair by clipping the rest of the hair with a clip over your head.
- With your two fingers hold your hair from below that need to be trimmed and just snip that portion of the hair, which is below the finger.
- And then again take another section of hair that needs to be trimmed and cut them with the length, which you had snipped before.
Hair Trimming Tips:
- It is advisable to have a double-sided mirror when you are getting a hair cut. It helps you to see at the back of your hair.
- Always use a sharp scissor while trimming your hair. If the scissors are not sharp they might damage your hair giving space to split ends.
- Trim your hair even if you do not find slip ends. It is easy to detect splits ends on straight hair than textured hair.
Scroll through these videos once you find a style you are interested in trying. There are lots more videos linked to the ones I have provided you below the video so scroll away ;)
