Ever since I was small, when I went to the stylist and asked for a trim the person would inevitably cut at least two inches from my hair.
Perhaps I was incorrect in assuming that a trim would not be the same as a cut. I know that my ends were not bad most of the time, I got regular cuts so they were never split. Most times I wanted a trim just to even it out since hairs grow at different paces.
With my mini-fro, I have the same issue with hairs being different lengths. The braid lady trimming the sides of the braid didn't help the hairs much at all.
So... last night I decided to go over the hair with the 8 guard again to make it even.
Little did I know that I have hair dresser skills and can trim excessive amounts of hair despite the desire of the client -- in this case, me.
The initial trim leads to some hairs not looking even, which leads to me cutting just a bit more, which leads to me seeing things in my hair/head that I don't like, which leads to me cutting more, which leads to it not being even, which leads to me cutting even more.
I am now no longer 2" or more.
I am now a little over a centimeter in length.
Which is fine. I will still keep growing it.
Though I am now almost tempted to go lower -- it just looks so good short, and it is super easy now. I don't even need a comb anymore. I am back to ab brush and to not needing extra time to untangle the coils.
