The Big Bang Theory and The Importance of Trimming

They're back!

After a year of growing out my bangs, I missed them and welcomed them back while sitting for a routine trim. There is just something playful and youthful about bangs. I also find they make it easier for me to not put much effort in styling my hair, while looking as if I have. Bangs make a messy pony of messy bun look as if you meant to look a bit disheveled on purpose, when the truth is, you were just too lazy to pull a decent style together.

It had been 5 months since my last trim and that, ladies, is just too damn long. No matter how well I take care of my hair, the change in the weather during the cooler months, makes it dry and brittle––along with my skin. Add heat treating to that and well, I experienced quite a bit of breakage this fall.

Cut It to Grow It:

Many women, especially women of color who may have a difficult time growing their hair and keeping it healthy, tend to avoid regular trims. However, it is regulate trimming that helps your hair to grow! Slit ends with keep splitting and could with breaks, you will find yourself with shorter hair than if you would have simply trimmed the damaged hair.

It is recommended you have your hair trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks.
