Why should I be getting regular hair trims, I’m growing my hair?

Have you ever tried to grow your hair but for some reason it just wasn’t getting the length you so desperately wanted? Did you stop trimming your hair while hoping it would grow? Here at Toronto’s own Thair Hair Boutique & Spa our highly trained staff of master stylists see this common mistake all too often. Even if you’re trying to grow your hair long and luscious, a baby trim or dusting every 8-12 weeks is essential!

Prevent Damaged Hair

By trimming your hair, it prevents ends from splitting and breaking. The reason you couldn’t achieve that desired length before? Because your hair was breaking off! Yikes. Regular ‘baby’ trims prevent this from happening and encourage strong, healthy hair from root to tip! So wait a minute. How does this split end business actually work? A split end happens when the outer covering of the hair known as the hair cuticle breaks. The reason this happens is because as the hair grows longer, the cuticle gets weaker and eventually breaks. The result is that the the middle layer of your hair strands become unprotected. It’s not a good or healthy look! Plus, split-ends start at the tip of the hair but if you don’t cut them off, they’ll keep moving up the strand, so your hair will actually get shorter, the opposite of what you are desperately trying to achieve! The solution - getting regular ‘baby’ trims every 8-12 weeks. By trimming off those split ends you’re actually improving hair growth and hair strength. Say goodbye to those damaged strands and hello to the new healthy strands you just made room for. Although, growing your hair to be long and healthy doesn’t happen overnight, by managing split ends and damaged hair you’ll be one step closer to achieving long and luscious locks.

Amp Up Your Hair Health

Of course, the healthier your hair, the easier it is to grow it long. As we’ve explained, trimming every 8-12 weeks is an essential part of healthy hair. But what else can you do? One way to really help hair growth is to take supplements such as omega 3, along with biotin and vitamin D. Another option is to use that magical coconut oil on your hair and scalp. Coconut oil has so many significant benefits. It acts as an antibacterial and supports healthy hair and scalp health. And did you know avocado isn’t just delicious on toast, but it’s great for your hair too?! Not only does eating avocado help with the softness and sheen of your hair but you can even use avocado to make a great hair mask! But your best option?
