How to Trim Your Own Split Ends

If you go to a licensed hair stylist regularly, he or she is probably going to tell you no, you shouldn’t trim or cut your own hair. That’s often because they want to keep you coming back to the salon, but in fairness, they are trained with the right tools and techniques to trim your hair appropriately. 

But life has changed for all of us with presence of COVID-19 and many salons were closed for a long time. They’ve begun reopening with limitations, but folks are rightfully concerned about heading back to the shop. But just as you may go out to eat, it’s really helpful to know how to cook to feed yourself. Same with trimming your hair; it’s a helpful skill to have.

When I can’t make it to the salon, I trim my hair myself. Here’s how I go about it:

  1. After using Naturalicious Step 2 to help prepare my hair as a heat protectant, I blow dry my hair out.

  2. I then use a flat-iron set to a medium setting to straighten my hair, so that I can truly see which ends are split and how high it goes. Unless you’re skilled in cutting curly hair (and most people aren’t) you’ll end up cutting off “good” hair thinking that it’s split, when really it’s just curled up at the ends.

  3. I use good hair shears, not regular scissors that you can get from any old store; if you’re going to trim your hair, invest in a nice pair of shears to ensure sharp clean cuts.

  4. In front of the mirror, I section my hair into medium-sized manageable sections; taking one section at a time and being honest about where those split ends are, I do my best to cut each section in as few snips as possible to try to maintain consistent length removal.
  • If you’ve been caring for your hair by washing, conditioning, moisturizing and doing your hair treatments regularly, your split ends shouldn’t be crazy and you shouldn’t have to cut a ton

  • The fronts and sides of the hair are pretty easy, but the back-middle part is more challenging. I usually bring a section of hair straight up above the top of my head so that I can clearly see the ends in the mirror, and I clip any damage off.

Because I wear my hair curly most days, I’m not a stickler when it comes to making sure that my hair is completely even everywhere although I do my best to make sure it doesn’t look crazy.

Trimming your hair, is in the same boat as straightening your hair. We’re learning how to do both in the Repair Your Hair Challenge. So, if you haven’t joined the challenge and you’re not comfortable with the process, it’s probably best to let a professional take care of it. 

But for my natural curlfriends who like to live out loud on the wild side, you should feel empowered to take full control of your hair care and snip those ends. We all know that the look of a beautiful style can be ruined by raggedy split ends. So, go ahead and freshen up that do and don’t be afraid to let that damaged hair go. The longer you hang on to those frayed inches, the more inches you’re going to lose when it’s time to trim. Do yourself a favor and Cut. It. Out.

    My home has been filled with endless problems and misery which led to the divorce I never wanted with my husband. Everything crashed and we went our separate ways. I tried to move on but it was so difficult for me because I still loved my husband and my daughter has always cried wanting her father back. I had no choice rather than to seek help which led me to contacting DR ISIKOLO after seeing so many good remarks about his work. He assured me of reconciling me and my husband with his reconciliation spell which he did. I am glad to tell you all that the love and happiness has been reinstated and we got back together and I believe it’s forever for us and all thanks to DR ISIKOLO for doing so much to save my family. He is never too busy to help anyone. So contact him now if you need help as well. email him now via: or text him via WhatsApp +2348133261196

    Hello everyone my names are ALEX JACKSON from the UK, I want to use this golden medium to appreciate Doctor Abdul a great spell caster for helping me retrieving back my relationship with my ex lover when he ended and turned back on me for quite a long time now (6 months ago). He performed a spell for me and within 48 hours after the spell had been cast I received a text from my ex saying that he is sorry for the pains and tears that he had caused me and that he will not do such a thing to me again in his life. I was surprised but later accepted him back again. Anyone that is in the same line of problem or different one that wants to contact a spell caster should happily contact Doctor Abdul now on this email or message him through his Whatsapp +2348108728256
