Micro Dusting: The Non-Haircut We Didn't Know We Needed
For all those growing out their hair during this lockdown, I'm sure you have come to notice that your split ends have grown out too causing some strands to break off since it has been almost two months or more since we have seen our hair stylists or had a salon appointment.
So how can we prevent your split ends from getting in the way of your hair growth without sacrificing the length of your hair? Let us introduce you to micro dusting the non-hair cut you need to keep growing your hair healthy.
Micro dusting popularly known as surface cutting is the cutting your split ends along the hair strand. We call it the non-hair cut as compared to a regular haircut micro dusting does not sacrifice as much length.
So how can you, micro dust or surface cut from the comfort of your own home. First, we advise that if there is even a small chance for you to go to the salon and have this done professionally do it. Second, if you are going to do it at home, we suggest asking someone else to help you as they have a better view of your head.
