I decided to take advantage of JCPenney’s free haircuts for kids in August this weekend and took Brianna to get a much needed trim. She’s never been to a salon before and free always sounds good to me! So I procrastinated until the weekend before school starts to take her in. Up until now, I had trimmed her ends from time to time but it was never consistently. But I knew I couldn’t keep putting it off because her ends were looking pretty bad. Healthy hair is what’s important so I was prepared if the stylist was going to give me bad news.
I told the stylist that I was ok with starting with a couple of inches. Before long she was finished and I kinda expected more to be cut. I think she was being overly cautious, but in hindsight I appreciate that. She’s probably been chewed out before by a mom or two, smh.
Here’s the back and it’s not really easy to tell much of a difference from the back. She didn’t lose a lot of length, but when looking up close you can see the layers in the back from her trim.
Overall it was a good experience. I will start to keep my eyes out for specials for kids cuts because she needs to go to a professional to keep her ends trimmed. And for now we’ll continue this journey naturally. It is definitely my goal, although there are plenty of times when I want to throw in the towel! But I continue to press on in the name of keeping her hair healthy. I see so many horror stories of young girls with relaxer damage…I just can’t.
