The myth that cutting hair can make it grow faster persists because, in fact, regular trims can improve the look and feel of hair. Trimming unhealthy split ends, will allow your hair to have less breakage, making it look thicker and even shinier. Healthy hair should have a steady appointment to be trimmed at half an inch every six to eight weeks, although this is true it is not something that we often do. Natural hair is high maintenance but we have to be willing to keep up our hair care routine if we want long lasting healthy hair; and yes that means trimming.

Healthy hair will have no damage or breakage if regular trimming and conditioning occur. It is fine to wait longer than eight weeks for a trim, but it is important to watch for split ends. Hair naturally begins to split around 3 months. To prevent any permanent damage from these naturally occurring split ends, you should schedule a trim with your stylist every quarter. Scheduling a trim every 3-4 months or 12-16 weeks will help to keep your hair healthy, strong, and split free.

It’s important to keep your hair neat and tidy, and a quick trim can do the trick. Keep up your annual cuts and your hair should continue to flourish!

  1. Man this is crazy, I had no idea that it was good to get haircuts. I love to get haircuts and trimmed, I get mine every two weeks! I don’t know if that is too much or if it even matters for short hair!


  2. While my hair is quite different from the average woman’s, this post was very informative. I often go to get a haircut once every 2 weeks or so. I have never really considered just trimming it, but I can certainly pass this news along to several friends that are in need of a trim!

  3. very helpful post, definitely agree, if the ends of your hair are generally looking unhealthy it sure is time to cut it off. Did a blogpost about my natural hair journey if you’ll like to check it out 🙂
