    Default Cutting your own hair (low) how to questions

    Hello everybody!

    Man it's been ages since I posted on here. I have popped in a couple of times per year over the years... Good to see that this board is still going

    As per - I need some advice and this is the best place to get it!

    My life are now 9 years old (!!!) And tailbone length. I've been thinking about cutting them off for a few years but (1) I need to lose weight first. I'm too self conscious to show this face in its current state without some framing and (2) at my young 20 years of age I retorted to my dad that I would keep them for 10 years in defiance and I can't lose face

    I'm looking for a barber in London who can give me one of these AMAZING low cuts I drool over on Instagram but am having no luck In addition, I'm really worried about developing hyper keloidalis nuchae (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acne_keloidalis_nuchae). My cousin suffers from it very badly - he has massive keloids all over his head. Today I've discovered that my brother is developing it too, although a relatively mild case. In an attempt to try and prevent this, I'm looking into learning how to cut my own hair. I remember iluvkanye (?) had a video on her YouTube which I've found but was wondering if anyone else had some tutorials/tips/guidance/advice on how to do this, what tools I should get etc.

    TIA!

    (Btw on my phone so if links/emojis don't work, my bad)

    Wow, I had to go look up Acne keloidalis nuchae

    I have see this before but didn't put it together with this specific condition. Inflammatory conditions are really difficult to treat if they are allowed to get away from you. To minimize it, you can try dietary changes away from foods that can irritate an inflammatory response in the body. Even things like tomato and nightshades can cause inflammation. Diet can make a BIG difference helping to prevent as well as treat inflammatory illnesses.

    I am going to do a callout for you so more folks will see your post! Especially folks near you. So stand by.. tailbone length locs are NOT to be trifled with!
