Hairdressers recommend that you get your hair trimmed regularly to keep it healthy. But how many people actually follow these this advice? In fact, do you get trims in the first place? Or do you put off getting a haircut till your hair's getting too long to manage and you're ready for a new style?
My mum schedules our hairdresser to come over every six weeks. I find this comes about far too often, especially since the rate of my dad's hair growth has slowed dramatically (if not gone in the other direction). If it were up to me, I would only get a hair cut when I actually notice that it is too long.
I find haircuts a bit tricky to schedule around minding my children, but I don't really care terribly much about it anyway since I'm not that concerned what other people think of my hair. If it's not bothering me it doesn't really need cutting.
My hair is very fine and splits really easily. If I was rich, I would have it trimmed every darn week along with my chiropractic adjustment, but as I'm on the poverty line I tend to put it off and put it off. The longest I went recently was five months. I am rather embarrassed about this.
I find hairdresser costs a little expensive, so usually put it off until I really, really need a cut. Sometimes I'll go up to 6 months without getting a cut. I understand though that some people have a certain style which requires maintenance more frequently - I'm glad I don't have to worry about that!
I'm not fussy about what length my hair is so I generally just wait till the ends look like they need a trim, which can be anything from 6-12 months (it seems to get longer each time). Then I go and get a few inches off. A haircut isn't about new styles for me, just making sure it never looks ratty. I don't dye or blowdry my hair, so it's always been pretty healthy.
Over the last 40 years Hairdressers have Always said you should have your hair trimmed Regularly.
Because it keeps them in business!.....and the sad thing is, people buy that concept.
Men I believe should have it done every 5-6 weeks.
Women who are sporting a very 'blunt-cut'...then you have to go every 3-4 weeks.
I have my hair cut every 3-4 few months.A trim on the ends, and I am good to go!
I can think of a hundred different things to buy.........with the money I save.
How often one needs a haircut depends on the length and texture of the hair, lifestyle, budget, etc. I find that my hair grows on average 1 inch/ month. So unless I feel like changing my hairstyle, I would have a haircut every 2 or 3 months. While longer hair doesn't bother me, having a trim every so often does have its benefits. It keeps my hair free of splits and helps my hair grow better. As for taking care of my hair in between my trips to the hairdresser, I try to stay away from hair straighteners. Some oils are very good to keep your hair moisturised: argan oil, olive oil or coconut oil, etc. An occasional hair mask is really a treat that you can do yourself at home, too. With avocado and some other ingredients that you can find in your own kitchen, your hair will look as good as it would after a trip to the spa.
I have long hair so I just go to the sit down and wait barber rather than one of the more expensive hairdressers. I have my fringe cut when it starts to creep over my eye and some length off when I start to roll on it in bed.
There's a difference between needing and getting.Need is probably 6/8 weeks but getting is only twice a year. I work long hours and I find it hard to find good hairdressers who are working when I am free.
