If you favour strong, healthy hair, and let’s be honest, who doesn’t?, then a regular haircut should be a part of your hair maintenance routine.
Here’s what you need to know about the importance of trimming your hair—and if you’ve missed your recent visit, why you should schedule an appointment at your hair salon today!
Benefits of regular haircuts
Getting a trim regularly, every six to eight weeks, will help to minimize the damage caused by split ends.
As split ends are progressive, if left untrimmed the split will continue up the strand toward the scalp leaving you with a lot more damage; that could have been avoided.
One of the best benefits of regular trims is that it gives you the illusion that your hair is thicker than it actually is.
If the hair is not trimmed regularly, split ends will make your hair taper off and appear thinner. Therefore by trimming the hair regularly you’ll get a fuller look that will make your hair look thicker and healthier.
Frequent haircuts are particularly important if you have a short hairstyle, like a pixie cut, or a bob. Bangs can also appear awkward and become uncomfortable if they are not trimmed regularly. Even longer hair looks best with frequent trims.
After cutting off the damaged hair it will be easier to manage and maintain. This is because it will be less prone to tangles, and damage, making it easier to style.
For those with frizz-prone hair, consistent cuts can help prevent this wiry look.
It’s much easier to “dust off” a quarter-inch or so if you visit the salon regularly. Otherwise, your stylist might have to cut off three to four inches to keep your strands healthy. It can be difficult to part with that much hair in one sitting, and you may end up with a cut that’s shorter than you would like.
