    Default S&D Slackers Thread

    From LHC Terms and Abbreviations:
    S&D - Search & Destroy Mission - an in-depth split end snipping session where you aggressively eliminate splits.
    Welcome!
    This is a support thread for those who have found it hard to keep on top of their split ends with regular S&D sessions.
    Let's help each other wage war on those splits!
    What are your helpful hints? When do you S&D?



    I haven't done an S&D for many months - only trimmed the odd split if one catches my eye and if my hair scissors are handy.
    I want to get into the habit of trimming splits more regularly. If I commit to an 'S&D schedule' here, I should be more inclined to follow it. At least, that's the plan.
    My first goal is to undertake a 20 minute session before the 9th.

    I keep a pair of snipping scissors in my bag; the only time I S&D for 20 minutes or more is when I'm a passenger on a longish car trip. Otherwise, I can't be bothered doing it for more than a few minutes at a time. I really should have a good go at it and try to round the little beggars up.

    I always look at the ends of my hair in front of a bright lamp or the monitor light, but I never find any splits -- knock on wood.

    I found one tiny knot, and snipped it, but that was it.

    I really should S&D, I just don't take the time to do it.
    I'll try to get in the habit again.

    I keep a pair of scissors at my desk, just in case I suddenly see some split ends. Only when I'm bored I really S&D.

    I heard of S&D when I first joined LHC in June, and I've yet to do it. I'm pretty lucky in that I don't tend to get splits, but I probably should invest in a pair of scissors and do it once in a while. I'm lazy.

    I SD when I'm bored. Or procrastinating. Since I get micro trims from my hair dresser when I get my fringe done (trust me, can't do it myself. Tried and failed miserably), I keep them at bay that way.

    I do this too, about once a week. I try to fret too much over splits though. My hair is prone to split ends even with gentle care. I'm hoping catnip rinses will help to decrease them because nothing else has worked.

    I am a genuine slacker. I have never done an S&D, not even once, and I probably never will.
