Why You Shouldn’t Wait Too Long Between Haircuts

Busy schedules can get in the way of trips to the salon, but regular trims can actually help save you time and frustration from bad hair days.

The longer you wait between cuts, the harder it is to manage and style your hair. Why? Well, it’s not necessarily just because your hair is longer – it could be that split ends are creeping in.

Split ends are progressive, meaning once the ends of your hair are spilt, they’ll continues to split, moving up the shaft of your hair. If you don’t get them trimmed out, you could end up with fine, straggly, frizzy, damaged-looking hair.

A shampoo like DESIGNLINE Mend the Ends can help prevent future split ends.

So how often should you get your hair cut? It depends on how fast your hair grows and the condition of your hair. Every 4-6 weeks is standard, but keep in mind, it’s much easier to trim a half-of-an-inch, than wait and have to cut off 3 inches for your hair to look healthy.

You don’t need an appointment, so add SmartStyle to your list and stop in for a trim.
