How often do you cut your hair? When it comes to setting up your schedule of styling your hair, it really makes sense that you can answer the question above, since your frequency of cutting hair has a lot to do with the status of your hair.
How often should you cut your hair? Before answering this question, I want to show you something. Actually, the growth rate of hair is one half inch every four weeks averagely, and it is also possible that it varies from person to person.
To set up your haircut schedule, you should make it clear that which hair look you want to have.
In case that you have long hair and you want it to be long-lasting, regular haircuts are used to keep it healthy and shiny. The longer your hair is, the more fragile it is, since hair becomes “dead” after it grows out from cuticles. Long hair tends to be victims of breakage, split ends, and thin hair, especially in case that you color, highlight, curl or straighten your long hair. By means of regular haircuts, you can keep strong and healthy hair to some extent.
To keep healthy and strong hair, you are suggested to shorten your hair at least every 8 to 12 weeks, or every 6 to 8 weeks if more breakage or split ends. If you would like to have longer hair, let your hair stylist trim your hair a half an inch or less off the ends, or trim more off the ends to keep your hair staying the same length. When thinking about how much hair to cut off, taking hair growth rate into consideration.
For medium length, the same rules are feasible as well. It is also important for you to have your hair cut every 6 to 12 weeks if you have medium length hair and want it to be healthy in appearance. To keep your hair at your preferred length, making a trim every 6 to 8 weeks, while a trim every 6 to 8 weeks can help you grow out healthy and strong hair.
More frequent trimming is needed for fresh short hairstyle. To keep the shape of your short hairstyle fresh, trim your hair every 4 to 8 weeks. Regular haircuts at 6 to 12 week intervals are suggested if you are going to grow your hair out.
For chemically processed hair, more frequent haircuts may be needed since this type of hair is typically more susceptible to breakage, split ends, and dry hair. Over-drying and breakage can be prevented by more frequent hair cuts.
So, what’s the status of your hair and how often should you trim it off?
