I have a link to help make trimming easier, it's from th eLong hair community which is the caucasian version of LCHF. I copied and pasted from my hairlista site.
 
How to self trim!!!!I was doing some research about trimming your own hair and I stumbled upon the LongHairCommunity.com. It's pretty much the same site as hairlista, just geared toward type 1-2 hair. I thought this was truly a gem so I wanted to share these tips with you. Feye's method of trimming has 3 different instructions: One for a straight across trim, a slightly U-shaped trim, and the V-shaped trim. I hope this can bring some clarity and good information to myself as well as you ladies! Keep in mind, Feye has Mid-Back Length type 1a hair, but I'm sure we can re-create and modify her techniques to suit our own hair lengths. You'll have to cut and paste these links.

The straight across trim:

The V-shaped trim:

The u-shaped trim:
http://community.livejournal.com/feyeselftrim/1827.html#cutid1

At first I made this a blog, but i thought more could glean info if i listed this in the forum section as well. I'd love to see the results from Feye's techniques and also if anyone has any other suggestions or knows any improvements that can be made to these steps, please share!

I thought I was the only one that had not mastered the scissors yet.Wink
 
Thank you for the links msmchy! I loved the V-cut look I got when a professional clipped my ends but I'm trying to learn myself. I think I'll stick with search and destroy/straight across cut to get my hair to the same length all around.
 
The flat iron and then clip method sounds good too!

Didn't take long at all especially trimming my own hair when it was long, it was a snap. I trim my whole head all the way around and the top. I must say I perfected it by watching stylists videos online.

The first time I tried it I did a decent job. That was last year in July. Since then I've only done one real trim, which was this year in May and it came out wonderful. I also cut my bangs. Honestly, it takes patience, a good eye, and practice. You'll get it!

The U-shape cut is so pretty! I think I'll try that when I reach WL. But these tutorials are good, that's exactly how I cut my hair. I comb it into a center part and cut my right and left sides in sections. Works like a charm!

I have a tendency to 'fairytale', so I go for the V-shape to preserve more of it, and it's more flattering I think.

I only trim dust whatever like every 10-12 weeks when I get my relaxer
And while I'm flat ironing I look at that piece of hair and trim and ends I'm not happy with so I I know I got most of it lol
