Many women choose to patiently grow out their hair instead of trimming it. After all, long hair can be quite versatile. However, did you know that not getting regular trims can lead to damage and stunted hair growth? Here are 5 vital signs that your hair needs a trim –
We’re all familiar with those pesky single strand knots. Curly and tightly coiled hair is extremely prone to these. This is the biggest sign that your hair needs a cut. Healthy ends equal lesser knots. That’s why, using a product with good slippage such as ProfectiV Mega Growth Daily Leave-In Strengthener is essential.
Detangling is hard anyway, but has this routine grown to be harder by the day? If your fav detangling product hasn’t been doing its magic lately – face it babe, it’s your hair and not the product. It’s trim time sista!
Do you use excessive heat or styling tools? Do you have dry hair? If your answer to one or both the questions is yes, you need to be wary of the splits, girl. Dry hair is more prone to split ends and if you leave them unchecked then they can travel up to the mid-lengths of your hair damaging the good hair. Ditch the splits, not the trims. Again, you can add more nourishment and strength to your hair by using ProfectiV Mega Growth Daily Leave-In Strengthener.
If your products don’t seem to be working anymore or your hair cannot retain moisture like before, then these are clear signs of unmanageable hair. It is a signal that your hair has become more porous and needs more moisturizing. Going for regular trims and adding products which are rich in Shea butter can help in adding moisture and seal your ends.
If you are one of those who has not gone for a trim in over a year, waiting for your hair to grow out patiently but it still refuses to grow, then you aren’t the only one. Many naturalistas, especially those suffering from shrinkage tend to refrain from trims not knowing that the brittle ends will get even worse and ultimately lead to breakage instead of growing. Although regular trims won’t ensure that your hair growth is “faster” it will ensure that your ends are healthy and promote regular hair growth.
