    I do wear my hair up most of the time. Generally in a bun of some sort. I may just go back to the way I uses to be with it and only take it down when absolutely needed.

    Well, here's a couple of post trim pics. I ended up taking about 1.25" to 1.5" off. That's ok though. For not having trimmed since about March, that's pretty good. A little over an inch every 3" of growth, maybe a little more is ok. I'll still be at 39" to 40" by the end of the year and my goal of 46" to 47" by the end of 2012 is still totally possible.

    your ends look thinner when you have your hair straight, your natural hair the ends don't look as thin. I too get this problem and have just cut from nearly hip to just past bsl and feel so much better for this. I understand you not wanting to trim it all in one blow, thats some long hair but id suggest cutting half your monthly growth, this will allow your hair to thicken and still gain. But its kind of princessy in its curly state.

    I grew out a very shot bob and didn't cut the ends for an entire year. It grew and I had no splits (I rarely every get them) but it was so uneven and thin and scraggly I had to cut more than 2" to make it look better. Personally I think small trims and dustings every 2-3 months is better. I trim every 4-6 weeks but it's only a dusting.

    I have decided to trim half my growth every 8 weeks. I think that would be the best way for me to do it. Thank you.
