Well you need to cut it…
So many times I hear people tell me that they simply not cutting their hair so it will grow.
Now I do get the logic however there is something you’re not realising that plays a major part when growing your hair.
The ends of your hair put up with so much, colouring, hot tools, UV exposure and Chlorine to name a few. What happens to your hair while all this is being done to it? Basically those ends fray and eventually split.
We want to make sure we give it a small trim before we even get to the fraying bit. Once this starts it will actually fray faster than your hair can grow, therefore being the total opposite of what you wanted, shorter and ‘chewed’ looking on the ends. No one wants that!
Now my rule of thumb for this regular cut is dependent on exactly what your hair has to deal with from your lifestyle, as well as the type of hair you have to begin with.
If you have amazing quality hair that you treat very well, you may be able to get to 10 weeks. Your haircut will lose its shape by then but it shouldn’t be split.
What about the other end of the spectrum though? What about those of us that have a finer hair quality and use hot tools and colour regulary?
My guidelines here would be 5-6 weeks max. If you have what I like to call a ‘micro trim’ regularly your hair will grow much faster than if you don’t.
For all my guests I recommend trims every 5-10 weeks depending on what I have mentioned above.
As always if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Education is my thing and I love simplifying
all this hair stuff for you.
