Want long hair? Don't cut it!

June 15th 2013 01:52
If only it were that simple.

Rather, it's a delicate balance between growing your hair fast and keeping it in style. You don't want to cut off what you grow, but at the same time you want your hair to look its best.

Your hairstylist will likely tell you that you need a trim every six weeks, but trimming your hair this often is unnecessary and counterproductive to your goal of long hair. However, going for years without a trim may also be counterproductive because you'll have a huge mass of split ends to cut off the next time you step into the salon. You need to find a happy medium.

Everyone's medium will be different. It depends on your hair type, and how often you style it or have it coloured. If your hair is really brittle then you should deal with that - i.e. grow out your natural hair - before you go long. Long hair only looks good when it's in top condition.

If you're extra gentle with your hair and lay off the colouring and heat styling, then you could easily go 18 months without a trim. Your layers (if you have them) won't have grown too far out of style, and you won't have as many split ends. This is particularly true for fine-haired people as their hair doesn't split as easily as their coarse-haired counterparts.

Put simply, if you want long hair that looks good, the occasional trim is necessary... but just how occasional depends on your hair's type and how carefully you look after it. Find your own happy medium and with a little patience you'll get the long hair you desire.
