You can just snip them off whenever...there's no timeline. Is there a reason you're keeping them?

Snip them off today. Then you can say you're completely natural.

bhop13--the person that did my big chop left them. She told me to come back in a month and she cut them off. I just don't want it to do anything to my hair in the meantime.

Thanks everyone...I am going to snip them off. It's not a lot but stilll want them gone!

I am wondering if this is what I need to do. I flat ironed my hair a month ago and now one side of my hair has natural coils and the other side has straight ends. I am so frustrated with my hair.

When my mom help me cut of the perm ends she left a good inch on. During that week the perm ends didn't look good so I just trimmed them off until it was all gone. Whatever feels right for you.

Congrats!!

SheriMinx--Wow if I had an inch I couldn't take it either. I am going to get mine trimmed after this weekend for sure. Thanks hun!


@MrsTammie--it maybe your issue. The lady that did my BC told me she left a little relaxer on the end so I know I need to get it cut off.


Thanks Ladies for all the advice. I am definitley going to trim them off.

@ Naturaldisiac: Don't know who cut your hair but is she just trying to keep you coming back to her? You can cut those babies off and you'll be all natural. Good luck!

@ MrsTammie: This is exactly why str.aight.ening hair is never advocated on this hair board-Nappturality. You have ruined your curl pattern and probably need to cut off the str.aight ends.

And your hair is frustrated with you. After all, you are trying to make it look a way it wasn't meant to look. Sometimes, your hair will oblige and forgive you, but others it will tell you to go to the devil. That's the risk you take when you alter your texture.

Thanks ladies! Hopefully the advice you've offered to MrsTammie will help her come to a decision on what her next step is concerning her hair. ;)

@lin19--I believe that could have been her intent. I want to cut them myself but I am a little afraid. I may go ahead and get my hubby to cut them.

@Myhairchronicles--thanks! I will definitely take your advice and get rid of the stragglers.

@Moderator Q--thanks for the congrats! I feel pretty good about my decision.
