I guess the ideal time or season to cut your hair simply doesn’t exist. There’s no perfect time to grow your hair and even if the moon can help, well, it is still not so crucial. Whatever the season you happen to go to the salon, your hair won’t grow any quicker because of the weather. Hair grows on average between 0.5 and 1.5cm each month and nothing you do can change that. Your hair will always grow at the same speed. You may think it will grow faster as it’s in better condition, and a regular trim off the ends of your hair gives off the impression of beautiful hair, however it’s unrealistic to think that cutting the ends will make your roots grow quicker! Hair is a dead substance.
You have split ends
This is the most obvious sign you’re in need of a chop. When it comes to haircuts, there seem to be two kinds of people out there. Those who go in religiously every few weeks to keep up with the latest celeb styles and those who only get a chop a few times a year. The ends of your hair are naturally going to be dryer than hair closer to the root simply because the hair is older, but if things start to look a little straw-like, then you’re likely fried from over-processing. Not even the best deep conditioning treatment will turn this ship around—it’s time for a trim.
You hair has color or heat damage
It happens, especially if you like to have waves, then straight hair, then a bun. And if you love balayage and bright tones it could be, that you really need to cut the ends, or even more.People tend to look for that miracle shampoo or vitamin, but if you really want to optimize your hair health—always start by looking within. Get some sleep, eat a balanced diet rich with vitamins B, A, C, D, Iron and Zinc, and make sure your hormones, thyroid, liver are functioning at optimal level.
Your hair is really boring and shapeless
Sometimes you look at your image in the mirror and you just don’t like it. It can be you are just in a negative or more demanding period of your life, but it can also be that you are keeping the same haircut for a very long time and you don’t feel good about it anymore. Or maybe you saw something wonderful in a fashion magazine and you really want to try it. Well, why not! Remember that hair will always grow!
You’re always tying your hair up
Tying your hair up will not slow down the hair’s growth. If this was the case, women everywhere would think twice about wearing chignons or ponytails. The point is that if you are always tying up your hair, maybe you are not satisfied with your “normal” look. This means you have a hair cut, which need something different to work out. Maybe shorter? Maybe bangs? Maybe another colour? You have to get some good advices and try something new. If you love and feel good about the way your hair is, then obviously disregard this sign. However, if you’ve never had the courage to change your ‘do, but you’ve wanted to in the past, consider this your push to do it!
