When to do it: on wash day.
What type of scissors to use: use very sharp scissors not blunt ones to create a clean cut. If you use blunt scissors you will encourage the development of split ends.
How to do it:
- After you have rinsed out both shampoo and conditioner, apply your leave-in conditioner or moisturiser.
- Using a wide-tooth comb make sure your hair is well detangled before you twist it for air drying.
- Twist your whole head then,
- Once twisted trim the end of the twist.
But will my hair be even?
It will be even enough. Natural hair is not like relaxed hair in that it doesn't line up on your back so each strand does not need to be exactly the same length. Trying to comb your hair into an afro and then trimming your hair that way will likely result in more hair being chopped off and less length retention over time.
