When Should you cut your hair?
We’ve all heard the golden rule that you should trim hair every 6–8 weeks. But is it really that cut and dry?
Well, not really!
Salon Experts say that the length of hair is a deciding factor on when you should schedule your trim.
Hair upto your collarbone or shorter should be trimmed [every] 4–6 weeks. Hair that is longer than collar bone should have a trim [every] 6–8 weeks. Anything longer than that, risks having to sacrifice length due to timing.
The takeaway: get trims more often to prevent split ends. Once the breakage has spread up the hair shaft, you have no choice but to cut it off — and that means losing length. :(
If you use chemicals on your hair i.e. any relaxers, colouring or bleaching you may need to head to the salon even sooner! Your ends are going to be more distressed and frayed, and you will most likely need to come in for a cut every 4–6 weeks to avoid having hair that looks like it’s fried.
So go, tame your mane!
