First wash your hair with shampoo and dry them with a blow dryer. Then brush your hair into a parting that you usually wear.
In case you have wavy or curly hair, then apply loads of hair creams and use flat iron to straighten out your hair. Part your hair in sections, where it is thick. Secure these sections with hair clips. Then, take out one section of the hair, and slide open the thinning shears halfway through the length of the hair from the scalp.
Snip using the shears once, open them immediately, then comb this section out. Repeat these steps using shears, for all the sections of hair. If you have curly hair, then you might need to snip at each sections twice or thrice.

Going for a Razor Cut

If you have split ends and overgrown hair, then it is best you visit a stylist and get a new trendy razor hairstyle. If you don't wish to reduce the length, then tell the stylist so and get layers in your hair.
After the layered haircut is finished, ask the stylist to use a razor. Razor will remove the bulk of the hair, thus will make your hair look sleeker and cooler. To maintain this haircut, you will need to visit the stylist every 6-8 weeks depending on your hair growth.

Using Hair Care Products
