HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TRIM MY HAIR?
Have you noticed more breakage, split ends, dry ends and knots that do not come out?
They said that hair should be trimmed at least every 8 to 12 weeks. But it’s that applicable for you?
Regular haircuts help keep your hair strong and healthy. No one is exempt from having split ends and hair breakage. Exposure to chemicals and elements, daily wear and tear, and just hair getting old can all be rough on the ends of your hair since the ends are the oldest part of the hair strand.
It's important to know that hair grows on an average of a 1/2-inch every week. However, some people's hair grows a little faster than others.
So the answer depends on type, length, and texture of your hair.
