A woman who just got a haircut is ready to take on the world.
This statement is truer than most people give it credit for and trust us when we say that even something as minor as a trim counts!
When it comes to trimming one’s hair, people often believe that trimmed hair = short hair. This isn’t necessarily true. Moreover, something that several long hair lovers don’t know is that by regularly trimming your hair you could achieve healthier hair.
Don’t believe us? Try giving this article a complete read.
Getting a trim may seem annoying and unnecessary to many of our curly-haired sistahs, but trust us when we say that it’s important. The benefits of trimming one’s hair include a longer, healthier growth and minimum breakage. The reason for this is simple- split ends. Natural hair gets split more often than other hair types. When not taken care of, these split ends could travel up your hair shaft and affect your roots which could eventually lead to breakage, hair loss and slower hair growth. To avoid this, it is important that you trim your hair in a timely manner.
For several women, trimming their hair once every 6-8 weeks works well for them. However, if you are someone who only likes to trim their hair when the situation calls for it, you should definitely look out for the following signs:
No one likes a crazy hair day. Single strand knots and split-ends are a sign that your beautiful curls are in desperate need for attention. In addition to getting a trim (which is vital to relieve your hair of split-ends), it is also important that you apply lotions and oil to your hair to ensure that your hair remains smooth and detangled. Using a butter-like the African Pride Black Castor Miracle Prep & Leave-In Moisture Butter is great for your curls as it deeply moisturizes your hair while helping to smoothen it out.
The appearance of wispy ends in your hair is enough to signify that your curls are in dire need of a trim. To find out if you have wispy ends, hold a section of your hair against a wall in a well-lit room. If you can still see the wall through your hair, it is definitely time to visit the salon.
Taking care of your hair should be your number one priority and by trimming it regularly, you’ll be one step closer to get the long, gorgeous hair you desire.
