View Full Version : I can't see to S&D - What's Your Technique?

I'm quite nearsighted and getting older, so I can't see well up close either. I find s&d very difficult, I grab a handful of hair and can see a split, but then it's very difficult to get the scissors to the split, I can't figure out which hairs are closer or further, it's a 3D puzzle I can't seem to solve. Do any of you ladies and gentlemen have a technique that helps with this? My hair is mid back length.

Dorothy, have you thought of bringing all your hair in front of you, like a curtain, and trying to S and D that way?

Also, it might help to gently twist the strands so that the damaged hairs stick out and you can snip them off.

Otherwise, it's just a case of sitting in strong sunlight and holding the hair as near to your eyes as you can - or at whatever distance works for you.
