As we all go about our busy lives, waking up early packing lunches, getting the kids off to school only to have 30 mins to get ourselves ready for a busy day of work , errands and running the kids to all of their after school activities, the last thing we feel like worrying about is our hair. Having a bad hair day can really effect someone’s confidence throughout the day no matter what we are doing. Have you ever stopped to ask your self, “How often should I trim my hair to make my daily hair routine easier?”
Everyone’s hair cutting needs are different. Some people like to keep their hair in a shorter style. When you choose a shorter style and want to maintain the exact style you walked out of the salon in you will need to schedule regular hair cuts every 4-6 weeks. After that amount of time you will notice a difference in your hair and you will probably notice a few extra minutes in front of the mirror in the morning.
If you initially got a great haircut from a skilled stylist then you can wear a haircut longer before it starts to act crazy. (Unless of course you want to keep the length short as mentioned above). Between 6-12 weeks would be sufficient to keep the shape and ensure you are getting rid of those pesky split ends. Some people enjoy the different styles they get during that time period. A great haircut should grow out nicely and maintain some shape allowing more time in between visits to the salon.
Like I said, everyones hair is different . Some people have hair that grows fast, some may have hair that grows super slow. There are also those with fine thin hair who may find themselves having to visit the salon more often because it starts going flat.Whatever your hair situation may be, getting regular trims is very important in maintaining the health of your hair. (along with the proper hair products) Healthy hair is always easier to work with than an unshapely head full of split ends. I know there is a myth out there that in order to grow your hair long and beautiful you should avoid any trims or cuts until it gets to the desired length. That is absolutely FALSE!! If you do that your hair will accumulate split ends, loose its shape and fall flat. There are a few lucky ones that have super healthy hair types that can go longer than the time frames above and still have great hair but that is not the norm. The next time you are fighting your hair in the morning, think about how often should you trim your hair to make your day easier and give you more confidence to get thru your busy day!
