  • Clipping Ends

     

    I heard that clipping your ends during the locking process helps ends round quicker and promotes hair growth. Has anyone heard of this technique? :P

    Haven't heard of it, this one is new to me.

    Doesn't clipping your ends help hair growth? Getting the dead hair off the ends seems logically to promote hair growth. It helps with any other hair type, why not with locs. I haven't tried it but it doesn't sound like it'll hurt; it sounds more like it'll help. Who knows.

    I'm trying to remember where I heard that from. You're right though. It does seem like it'll slow down the locking process. I know people say locking takes time & that's understandable is there isn't ANY way to spend up the process just a little bit?

    I was taught in the class I took on natural hair,that it was good to clip the end. I think it was meant every once in a blue moon. Just the little strays at the ends,not even a inch I believe.

    i clipped my ends during the beginning of my locing process because i was getting tired of seeing the pediepooh791s. My ends are sealed now.

    Do i regret not letting them seal on their own? Not really.

    I just trimmed my ends last week. The scraggely ends were driving me crazy. I haven't noticed anything bad happening, in fact they seem more solid now.

    I trimmed the front ends because they were just too scragly also I've been thinking about having a trim all over but then I just might keep the ends loose. I saw a pic of someone who had all her ends loose and it looked nice.

    I have SEVERAL scraggely (is that how yall spelled it? lol!) ends and I just choose to let them be. This second loc journey, I have made a conscious decision to embrace all stages of loc metamorphism, mainly to gain patience and decrease my level of vanity. I'm pretty sure that my locs will look 100% better once all of the ends round, but I'm going to brave it out and just deal with the ins/outs, ups/downs, perfections/imperfections of me and my locs.

    If you want to clip your ends, clip them I say (Once you investigate and find that it is safe to do so). To each his or her own.

    The loctician that started my locs used to clip my ends after maintenance. She called it pruning. The look was definitely neater. I observed the locs coming and going from her shop as well as her own and they didn't appear damaged at all. I don't believe that clipping them will speed up any part of the process, cause miraculous growth or terrible damage. It just makes them look neater.

    I sometimes clip if the loc is really ragged and unruly looking but other than that I leave them alone just because I have accepted them as part of the process.
