Micro Trims for Thickness

In this post, I'll be sharing how I was able to increase my hair thickness—in the bottom length—and grow it out to classic length at the same time.

I can't remember exactly when I started doing micro trims on my hair but I believe it was at the beginning of 2016. Below I will show pictures of my hair in July of 2018 to this year 2020 so y'all can see for yourself how much the micro trims have helped the appearance of my bottom length.

Keep in mind that the micro trims are not the only thing that has helped thicken my hair. I also started taking better care of it around the same time. I know that, for me, without doing the micro trims it would have taken a lot longer to thicken my ends and grow my hair at the same time. Doing these trims also helped me get rid of a lot of the split ends I had from old damage.

The micro trims I did—my mom actually did them—was simply to even my hair out on the ends so that they were always straight. About once a year, we did a bigger trim of about an inch at most.

I trust my mom 100% to trim or cut my hair because she understands how much I've wanted to grow my hair out. She has helped me a lot with my journey to classic length. I actually never really told my mom how much to trim each time as I had complete faith she wouldn't cut too much.

About once a month, we would even out my hair. I did this for a while before I realized that my hair growth was slowing down a little at the same time my ends were getting better. At this point, we decide to trim every two months.

By following this method, I have seen the thickness in my ends drop from the middle of my back to the ends. My hair still isn't as thick as I would like it to be at the end but I am getting there. I plan to continue using this method until I have reached the thickness I want at the end of my hair.
