Trim…It’s Important!

Everyone wants thick, beautiful and well performing hair. The best way to achieve this goal is to have routine trims. This concept of trimming does scare many people, that is understandable.

Many people usually ask ” Why would I cut my hair if I want it to grow?” You will stop asking that question once you learn the importance and benefits of trimming.

Trichotillomania Explanation:

To gain and maintain length of your hair, you must pay attention to the hair ends.Your hair strands are very similar to a plant, there are 3 majors parts to the hair which is the root, stem and end. The root or hair bulb is the start of life for any hair follicle. Next is the stem of the hair follicle which is part of the hair that is seen petruding out from the scalp. Lastly, the end, where the hair follicle ends and is  the most fragile part of the hair follicle.

Hair ends are constantly being attacked by the environment ( hot, moist or cold ,dry air), combs and other hair utensils ( blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons etc.). Like most fragile things, it will crack or break under the pressure. This is known as split ends. The only remedy to cure split ends are to trim them. The splitting of hair ends is what stops the lengthening process of hair follicles.

The hair follicle never stops growing. As new growth occurs, the split end will continue to split up the stem of the hair follicle causing the end to break. If the end of the hair keeps breaking off that the hair follicle will not be able to maintain its length and or become longer.

There are preventative actions that can prolong or control the splitting process. Moisturizing your hair twice daily will help keep hair flexible and supple to combat against any attack. You can also try not to use too many hair apparatuses on your hair daily.

As stated above, trimming is the only cure for split ends. Having atleast one trim per season would be great. The best regimen is to have trim every 6 to 8 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. Keeping the ends of your hair maintained will ensure healthier , thicker and longer hair growth. This also helps with a speedier growth cycle.
