Trimming Naturally Curly Hair

We got D’s hair trimmed, or should I say CUT again, recently. Her last trim was in November so she was due for another. She had some massive hair growth since then and we ended up cutting off about 4 inches this time. I just wanted to share a few photo’s with you all.

See her before trim hair length.

We went with the same routine that we used the last time we trimmed her natural hair. Washing and banding the hair over night. The next day I took her hair down and combed through it, then put it in one banded ponytail before we headed off to get it cut.

And here she is with her straightened, trimmed hair.

Our buddy at Mainly Braids made the comment they she looks so different with her hair straightened and I think so, too, it was weird to see her with straight hair and then it was weird when she went back curly after a few days. It is fun to have her hair straight and play around with it every once in a while, we don’t do it too often. We did some fun things like adding the colored feather extensions and another style, which will be revealed soon :) but it is also nice to go back to those curls.
