When a long, luscious mane is what you're after, it may seem counterintuitive to give your ends a frequent trim. Doing so, however, might just be the golden ticket to strong, healthy, and-dare we say-long hair. Ahead, three reasons why you should get your ends trimmed regularly.
Bid Farewell to Split Ends
Not only can split ends come in the way of a good hair day, they can also prevent hair from growing to its full potential. The reason is quite simple when you think about it. As the split travels up the hair shaft, it thins to the point of breakage, meaning you'll likely have to resort to an even shorter cut down the road to repair it. If you notice your ends looking more frayed than usual, book an appointment with your stylist ASAP.
Routine Trims Can Help You Grow Longer Hair
The popular myth stating that trims help to stimulate hair growth isn't entirely true. It is true, however, that you will have a hard time getting long, strong, healthy hair if you fail to snip those ends regularly-we're talking every 6-8 weeks. These routine appointments help to eliminate the damage that hinders our hair from growing long. Plus, trims help to keep your haircut looking fresh and well-maintained as you grow out your locks!
Play Around With Different Hairstyles
If you've been rocking the same haircut for a few years, consider changing things up a little bit. Next time you make the trip to the salon to get your hair trimmed, ask your stylist for their recommendation on a bold, new cut or color that'll suit your face, bite the bullet and go for it! Who knows, it might just become your new go-to.
