What about TRIMS during The Shampoo Challenge

Let’s talk about those ends. 

What are they? And how do I get rid of them... 

Some call it heat damage, relaxed ends, color, trauma, stress or lack of shampooing. 

What happens is when you begin The Shampoo Challenge, your hair will begin to thicken really quickly at the roots . The ends will not concede, the ends will not follow suit. In fact, the ends will appear obviously thinner! 


As a result, some believe their hair is falling out.  I say your hair is growing back...

Thick roots is what you will experience when you increase your shampooing 2x 3x 4x 5, 6 or 7 days a week. Yes, I said it, A WEEK! 

When you shampoo more frequently, your roots should also be more manageable and softer to the touch.  

There should be a clear line as to when you started The Shampoo Challenge or when you started shampooing more often. 

The Covid-19 crisis is the only time in the world right now when you can take some extra time and really pay attention to yourself and your hair. 

Here are several images of the same head of hair in different phases of a Synergi styling service -

You can see why I may not recommend you cutting all the hair at once. 

It’s good to cut the hair down in phases. 

This is why I recommend you trim your ends every 8-10 weeks, so that you can stay on top of your ends opposed to always trying to fix the ends. 

Because the straight ends cannot or will not curl on their own, they will keep your ends from being great! 

If your ends haven’t been trimmed lately or they are just hanging on (meaning they are a hot mess) this can cause a problem. It IS the problem. 

You know you have bad ends if:

  1. Your hair is hard to comb and tangles very easily
  2. You haven't had a trim within the last 6 months
  3. Your hair is thick at the roots and thin on the ends
  4. your hair just won’t do right

Give yourself some time.  At least up to 6 months of trimming. 

If you cut it all it off at once, your hair will appear or feel short to you and you may not be ready to embrace such a drastic change on top of a new hair regimen.  It is possible to grow out bad ends and relaxers over a period of 12 months with consistent trimming and increased shampooing. This way you achieve a healthy head of hair without having to compromise a lot of length. A Big Chop isn’t always the quick fix, you still have to take the journey. 

There is not much of difference between bad ends and relaxed ends.  Both need to be trimmed off and both will not have a consistent curl pattern all the way from the root to the ends. 

The ideal head of hair is for the texture to be consistent from the root all the way to the ends.
