Romance your hair the right way – Trim your hair
|Haircuts help to maintain hair health although it may seem the last thing that you would consider especially when you are trying to grow out your hair.
Trimming your hair while growing it out, encourages healthy hair growth by getting rid of split ends, breakage, and damaged hair. Trimming will ensure minimal split ends or breakage and give you fuller and healthier hair.
How often you should cut your hair depends on your hair length, hairstyle and hair condition. On average, you should trim it every two to three months. If you want to maintain your length, you can trim every four to six weeks. If your hair is more prone to split ends and breakage or you have a lot of chemical treatments done, trimming every eight weeks will help eight weeks will help keep your hair healthy.

Myth: Frequent trims make hair grow longer faster.Hair grows from the follicles in the scalp; the rest is dead. Strands only grow approximately a half inch every month.
Cutting the ends of your hair does not affect the follicles in your scalp, which determine how fast and how much your hair grows. Hair trimming will make hair appear to grow faster because the hair will break less as split ends and hair damage are removed. And thus, hair “grows longer” in a shorter amount of time.
