Hair length is perceived as the best way women can look pretty most especially by men. And this has been among the excuses why women keep long hair with the same belief.
Yet, we all know that the longer the hair is, the longer it’s been exposed to the tortures we put our hair through every day. Sun, wind, blow-drying, pony-tail holders, harsh shampoos, smog, pillows, and even poor diet can all take their toll on hair. In order to keep your hair looking healthy, even if it’s long, you must keep it trimmed.
On average, hair grows at a rate of about one-half inch (1.25cm) per month, and typically the hair should be trimmed every 8 weeks. This means, between cuts, the hair should have grown about an inch (2.5cm).
If you are trying to grow your hair longer, this means you can lose the least healthy half-inch of hair with each trim and still gain 3 inches each year. It may seem like slow progress, but you’ll be happier with the results in the end.
The end result will be a smoother, healthier-looking hair, with no loss of length or potential change in the style.
