And we are sure they all leave you very confused, right from oiling your hair, to how frequently should you get a haircut, never seems like there is one right answer!
As experts in all things beauty, today we’re going to tell you exactly how often you should get a haircut.
Benefits of cutting and trimming hair often
Before we move on to the frequency of haircuts, let us first discuss how getting regular trims benefits your hair.
- If you frequently use hair tools such as flat irons or dryers, your hair will naturally get more damaged than those who don’t. Regular haircuts and trims ensure this damage isn’t visible. Also it keeps split ends at bay.
- When you don’t get rid of split ends they can go up to your hair shafts and hamper the growth of healthy hair. Getting rid of damaged hair allows your hair to grow to its full potential, therefore making it look healthier and longer.
- Does your hair get tangled easily? Do you spend a lot of time brushing out knots from your hair? Regular trims will help get rid of damaged and dry hair, it will also allow you to style your hair as you wish.
How often should you get a haircut?
Layered cut: Grown out layered hair looks nice but if you wish to retain the original shape, get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks.
Short hair: Did you get a pixie cut this summer? Now if you want to maintain the hair length of your haircut, visit your hairstylist every 4 to 5 weeks. If you have a long bob go every 6 weeks.
Fringe: Fringe looks great but overgrown fringes are a strict no-no. Avoid making them look too messy by taking a monthly trip to the salon.
