Trimming your ends is a part of every good hair regime.  Some trim every 3 – 6 months, while others only trim when needed, i.e. you notice split or knotty ends.  The general rule of thumb is to trim every season (so every three months). Vlogger Ambrosia has a great tutorial demonstrating how to trim your natural ends.

Step-by-step

What you’ll need: 

  • Spray bottle filled with water
  • Sharp sheers
  • Wide-tooth comb

✮ Note ✮

This method is best done on stretched hair. It can also be done on dry already-detangled hair.

Step 1: section off a part of your hair.
