When you're trying to grow your hair long, the last thing you probably want to do is go and get a trim. However, if you want your locks to look healthy and shiny, regular appointments with your hairstylist are of the utmost importance.
Getting a trim will rid your hair of split ends
Split ends prevent your hair from growing long and healthy. Just think about it: the longer you go without a trim, the further the damage will carry up the hair shaft, and the shorter you'll have to cut your hair later on. Booking an appointment at the salon every two to four months will help your locks appear longer and luscious, and will also make it easier to achieve lots of different hairstyles.
Getting a trim can stimulate hair growth
Your hair grows on its own every month (about a ¼ of an inch), but when you get the ends trimmed it can help speed up the process by stimulating the hair follicle. Yes, it's never fun to feel like your mane looks a bit shorter right after a trim, but by next month your locks might grow to be longer than before your salon appointment!
Getting a trim can inspire you to try out a new hair color or hairstyle
Being in a hair salon and speaking with your hairstylist can make you want to go under a hair makeover. They can recommend a hair look you never knew would suit you, or you might even see a color or cut on someone else that makes you want to test it out as well. Here at Hair Trend News we're all for changing things up once in a while, so if this ever happens to you, we encourage you to go for it!
