There are just some hair maintenance "musts" that one must do to ensure they keep healthy hair. Some are no-brainers like washing hair while others seem counter-productive. Believe me when I say it is like pulling teeth to get some to understand the importance of a biggie like hair trims.

Hair trims are important to any successful hair care routine. For women with natural hair, keeping up with a regular trimming schedule is critical for preventing damage and maintaining length. However, far too many naturals fail to understand just how important it is to keep up with a regular trimming schedule. Here are 5 reasons why you need to stop skipping your trims and make them priority.

Can I Reduce Breakage Without Getting a Trim?


by Amanda

Q: How do you reduce breakage/shedding other than trimming?

A: Let’s start by discussing the difference between shedding and breakage.


What is hair loss?
"When your hair naturally falls from the root, you are experiencing hair loss. Some amount of hair loss normal and to be expected.

In fact, while you may not be aware of it, you’re likely losing up to 100 strands each day. The “100 strands” theory is based on the assumption that we have approximately 100, 000 hairs on our scalp and lose around 1% of them daily.

Additionally, the rate at which you’re losing hair can vary based on gender, diet and genetics.

What is hair breakage?

Curly hair is especially prone to breakage. You may experience breakage when combing, detangling, or styling your curls. Breakage is most noticeable when brushing or combing your hair, removing a hair band, or in the shower.

Did you know that there were this many kinds of split ends? Pretty nasty, right? Well, I can attest to the validity of this chart. Because, about 2 1/2 years ago, I saw just about every split end on it (except the white spots) in my own head of hair. It was bad y’all. I mean, baaaaaddddd! That’s when I took to carrying around purse scissors … so that I could take split ends to task at a moment’s notice, any time, any place (seriously, I was out of control)!

2011 NYC CurlyNikki Meet-Up: Told ya!

But now the split ends are few and far between and have been for quite a while. Let’s put it out there. I have fine strands. So,  I’ll probably always get split ends no matter how protective I am of my hair/ends (unlike my compatriots with strong, thick-strands ). But, now I generally only see the vanilla variety, single “split” end … and they tend to be far rarer and very small.

Stop Doing This to Your Natural Hair

Hair care is all about preservation. Your hair is not living like your scalp; it can be temporarily repaired but not permanently restored. Everything in hair care is meant to help maintain and style it. As your hair grows and you retain length, your hair is healthiest at the roots and usually the most damaged at the ends, which is why trims help to retain length. Before purchasing products and building a new regimen, it is helpful to understand how damage occurs and basic ways to maintain your curls.

A Hidden Cause of Hair Breakage Revealed and How to Fix It


by Sabrina Perkins of SeriouslyNatural.org

The one thing that is hammered into every natural-haired woman’s head is that the hair needs moisture, moisture and more moisture. While this may be true, there is a point where moisturizing your hair too much can actually cause damage to the cuticle.

This point is called Hygral Fatigue and is a direct result of over-moisturizing the hair. With the ever-popular Maximum Hydration Method on the rise, it is important that we know exactly what we may be subjecting our hair to if we aren’t balancing moisturization with protein treatments. Here’s what you need to know about hygral fatigue.
