My Hair besties series- E2: Regular Trim

Different people have different choices when it comes to hair length.some people think hair ( women's) should be long and some people like me basically do not care what should be but what is fun and nice!
So far I had hair that was long enough to get to my waistline or as short as 1 cm. I don't care how my hair length is as long as it looks healthy and nice. even when my hair is short I do have regular trim every 2-3 months, and I will tell you why is important to get it trimmed:
On average hair grows about 0.5 inch ( 1.3 cm) every month,so it means in average your hair grows about 6 inch in year and typically hair should be trimmed every 2-3 months. if you are growing your hair long you could cut about half-inch every 2-3 months and still gain 3-4 inches each year. I know it is a slow process, but the half-inch you cut is the oldest part of your hair and most damaged part. they've been through so much (sun, wind, blow-drying,heat stylers,pony-tail holders, harsh shampoos, smog, pillows, and even poor diet) and are ready to retire. believe me even the half-inch cut makes a huge difference and you will be happy with the results. 
I don't know if you heard this or not but some people think that if you trim your hair regularly, they grow faster which is NOT CORRECT; it will get rid of split ends and makes it healthier but does not effect its growth rate. 
If you are not planning to change your hair style you could even trim your own hair. just do it section by section and cut only half-inch. the first hair trim is always the hardest part since you have to let go of your hair, but after that it will become a regular habit for having a smoother, healthier-looking hair.
So as I always said to myself :  hair ends are dead It's time to let them rest in peace ;)  
Till next time :)



  1. I didn t know that. I have cut my hair every 2 months since last year. My hair are healthier but i think it takes time to have my hair like before my pregnancy. Eventhough i do not like my haircut i prefer having short nice hair than long horrible hair.
    Thanks for your advices.
