  • I try to go every 6 weeks but I'd say more realistically w/ my schedule I end up going about every 2 months, she just shapes it up and thins my hair out b/c it's so thick. It just makes it feem more managable to me.

  • technically you should trim every 6-8 weeks. I have been broke so my hair is growing out. I have not had a hair cut in over a year. It could look a lot worse!!

  • my hair grows very slow. i get the ends trimmed only if they look really bad. for me it's probably the 3x a year

  • It's good to trim your hair about a quarter of an inch every 6 weeks or so. After awhile, it'll be even. Once it's even, keep trimming it. I don't remember why, but trimming your hair regularly helps it grow.
