Hello my fellow natural beauties!!! :smil3f728e20478ac:

I was wondering do you guys think that it is a good idea to straighten your hair in order to get a good trim?....I was thinking about burning the hair straight :( or flat ironing :unsure: my hair for my next visit to the salon because it has been so long since my last trim.

It's not a necessity. Some people trim their hair when it's in twists.

I usually trim my hair when it's wet, I pull it between my fingers and snip. I've trimmed my twists before too.

You can twist it or braid it and then once it's stretched out just pull it down and trim the ends, it will give you the same effect as having it straighten. I only trimmed my hair when it was relaxed so I had to figure out how to do it natural but this way works just as well. HTH :)
