How often do I need a haircut?
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
I'm often asked, when should I get my next cut?
You'r current cut and styling routine will determine the amount of time needed for your next trim.
To keep your hair long, you must keep it healthy.
The ends of your hair are very old and fragile. Hair grows about half an inch per month. Therefore, the ends of your hair can be very old. The ends of your hair cannot be replenished from the natural oils that are close to your scalp. When these ends of long hair become dry or split they will get thin and start breaking. It is recommended for long hair to get trims from 8 to 12 weeks. When you color your hair and use chemicals it is recommended long hair is trimmed around six weeks. To keep it long I recommend a split end haircut with conditioning treatments.
If you like your length of hair I suggest trimming it every 6 to 8 weeks. If you have medium-length hair and you would like to grow it out longer you can prolong your haircut and go 8 to 12 weeks with a split end haircut and conditioning treatment added.
Short hair will lose its shape faster. It appears to grow quicker. The recommended amount of time between short haircuts is 4 to 8 weeks.
Often times we forget to use a heat protectant while blow drying and using hot tools on our hair. This will remove the moisture from your hair making it more fragile. You need that extra barrier of protection or you'll need to trim your hair's length more than you'd like. Try Loma's fortifying tonic mixed with calming cream.
Color and chemicals on hair
When you're using chemical treatments and hair coloring on your hair you will need more frequent haircuts. Your hair proteins will break down faster, your hair will be more dry, which will create split ends. It's recommended to go the soonest that your stylus recommends. Olaplex bonding treatments may be added to your hair color to prevent your protein bonds from breaking down and keep your hair strong.
