Trimming your hair is an essential aspect of maintaining the health and appearance of your hair, but how often should you be doing it? Continue reading to find out!
The frequency of haircuts can vary depending on the individual, the hair type, and style. Generally speaking, it is recommended to trim your hair every 6-8 weeks for short to medium length hair, and every 10-12 weeks for longer, thicker, hair. However, if going this frequently is not suited to your lifestyle, we recommend (at minimum) to go every 4-5 months!
Now what exactly are the benefits?
There are several benefits to trimming your hair regularly. The obvious one being that it helps to get rid of any pesky split ends. Split ends occur when the hair shaft becomes damaged, usually as a result of styling, heat damage, or general neglect. When left untreated, split ends can travel up the hair shaft, causing further damage and making your hair more prone to breakage. A common misconception is that split ends can only ever be isolated to the ends of the hair, but that is simply not the case! To neglect your ends puts the health of your entire head of hair at risk.
By ensuring you see your stylist on a regular basis, your hair will not only appear healthier, but it will be stronger, more manageable, and much less prone to breakage!
Overall, the importance of trimming your hair cannot be understated. If you haven't booked a hair appointment in a while, what are you waiting for?
