Hair trimming hair growth.

I want to stress from the outset that hair trimming does not actually speed hair growth process. It makes hair healthier, less prone to breakage, dryness, and as a result your hair will grow more in a shorter period of time.

Here’s a few signs you might be in need of a trim regiment.


You aren’t supposed to lose clumps when you wash. If you find that you are, it might be time for a trim. Ask your stylist to take of the smallest amount possible to rid of your split ends. Keep this practice up regularly, and you’ll find a lot less breakage.


Dry hair is what happens before breakage. If your hair is frequently getting dry though, it’s possible you might need a better moisturizers or you could have a scalp condition (like I do). Talk to your hair stylist about your hair. See if trimming can help with the hair (that can’t be saved) and start afresh.
