Snip! Snip! Snip! Why making time for a regular trim can transform your hair
It's hard not to pitch regular hair trims as the simple upkeep trick that cures all your hair-related woes. It indeed does work wonders. Just a simple trim every six weeks can significantly reduce frizz, dryness, breakage, and thinning — on top of that, it can make your hair look fuller, and saves you many painful yanks when detangling time comes.
Hair beauty, health, and retention. From Woe to … Wow!
- Beauty: Split-ends are hard to manage, and give your otherwise luscious locks an unhealthy appearance. They make your tresses unevenly tinted and textured because they are more dry and lighter in color than well-moisturized hair. For this reason, a fresh cut is more aesthetically pleasing and professional.
- Health: It is not just attractive, but also more healthy. Since dry ends are knotty and brittle, they are difficult to comb through and style - increasing the mechanical and frictional damage your hair receives on a daily basis from combs and hot tools. This is detrimental to your hair but also makes you waste more time frustratingly combing and styling after every wash.
- Retention: Although regular trims do not make hair grow faster, they do improve hair retention. Hair grows about one-quarter of an inch every month, but a lot of this can be lost due to harsh styling. A hair trim will make your hair appear fuller and thicker than it otherwise would.
Can anything be done to prevent split ends?
A lot can be done to slow down the arrival of split ends - from choosing to eat foods that supplement hair strength and growth to wearing the floppy beach hats that look stunning while protecting your hair from heat damage. It is essential to keep hair well moisturized by using leave-in conditioners, and shampoos without harsh chemicals as well as being mindful and gentle when styling and combing. Focusing on Clean Beauty, and consciously using shampoos and conditioners with only nourishing organic ingredients can help hair retain its healthy glow for longer periods of time by gently cleansing and hydrating without harmful chemicals — these products are the focus of Hair Addictz® and available in Nature’s Luxury Collection product line. It is important to note that, although these tips help, they cannot completely prevent split ends, and it is a good idea to schedule a haircut every six to eight weeks, or as soon as dry ends begin to appear.
