Maintaining Healthy Ends
When I first started wearing my natural hair out i noticed that a lot of my styles looked messy and limp, and I realized that this was because my ends were in terrible condition. Although damaged ends are less obvious on naturally curly/kinky hair, they can really affect the look of twistouts/braidouts or any out style.
Some people prefer to trim their hair on set schedule and this works for them. However, I have found that dusting my ends regularly is the best for me. It keeps my ends from ever getting to the stage where it causes more breakage to the rest of my hair.
What I do - whenever my hair is in twists (i.e. when I am washing it or doing a twist-out) I inspect the ends of the twists. If I see that there is significant thinning like it pictured above, I trim.
So far, I have needed to do this dusting about once a month. As you can see above, I never have to cut a significant amount of hair and I haven’t noticed any difference in length retention from doing this. If I find that my hair is particularly damaged, I will do a bigger trim to make sure any split ends are definitely gone.

Let’s face it, eating well is expensive… or it can be. Buying produce that is either organically (or biodynamically grown) is not cheap. But ingesting pesticide residue is anything but ideal.
Luckily, you can shave a few bucks off your grocery bill by growing a few of those staples from your diet. Best part, it is much easier than you think! You don’t need seeds or anything fancy. You can simply use kitchen scraps from your next meal. How great is that!
