YOUR ENDS

In Writing (all kinds) on April 7, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Thinking that you need to cut the ends of your hair when they are becoming frazzled is a myth. All you need to do is to apply oils and creams to the end of your hair and condition them well, perhaps a hot oil treatment that focuses on your ends and they will repair.

If you are looking for a good-looking haircut, this is a different story. Yes, of course, you would need to get a good haircut for these purposes. However, if you are looking to grow your hair to lengths which are beyond your dreams – do not, I repeat – do not cut the ends of your hair. Simply condition them as required when you see that your ends need extra care and extra attention. That is all those frazzled ends are telling you.

You have a relationship with your hair. It is on your head every single day. Even for people who are completely bald – that scalp is on your head and wearing you just as much as you are wearing your scalp every day – quotidian as the French would say.

Ensure that because you have a relationship with your hair that you treat the ends of your hair well. You do not need to cut them off as you would cut off a bad friend or bad lover. All you need to do is add extra oil and condition.

This is true of ALL hair types. Even for White folk!
