When was your last trim? Do you know the signs when you would need a trim? How often do you trim your natural hair?
Growing up…during my relaxer days. My stylists always trimmed my hair each and every time I would get a relaxer. So that was about every 6-8 weeks. That just so happens to be the standard time, right? Well today I thought it would be a great time to go over the significance of a good trim and some signs when your hair really needs one.
Why do you need to trim your natural hair? Well trimming your hair is a great way to maintain healthier ends. The ends are the oldest part of our hair strands and without proper care, they can become damaged. Once the ends are damaged, it leads to breakage and in turn there is a decrease in length retention.
What are some signs that you are in need of a trim?
While most people like to trim their hair on a set schedule, there are some signs that may occur at any time period and a trim might be due.
Signs that you may need a trim:
●Ends easily break off
●Single Strand Knots
●Rough, dry ends
●Thin, transparent ends
●Dull, limp hair
Benefits of a good trim:
●Rids of split ends
●Retain length due to less breakage
●Easier detangling & styling sessions (less breakage)
●Nice full & thick hair shape
