DOES HAIR TRIM­MING AID IN HAIR GROWTH?

Two ex­perts weigh in on the topic...

Hair - - Hair Debate -

Cut­ting your hair reg­u­larly is es­sen­tial for healthy and good looking hair. How­ever, cut­ting or trim­ming does not ac­tu­ally make the hair grow faster. Get­ting a trim or cut on a reg­u­lar ba­sis en­sures that you get rid of split-ends and dry ends, mak­ing the hair look health­ier. Split-ends cause a lot of hair break­age and thus they are counter-pro­duc­tive to hair growth. A reg­u­lar hair­cut helps to keep hair’s over­all health un­der check, no mat­ter how of­ten you blow-dry or colour, thus lead­ing to a good hair growth rate. For those who like to keep their hair long, get­ting a hair­cut ev­ery 12 weeks is es­sen­tial; those with shorter hair must trim it ev­ery six-eight weeks. Main­tain­ing healthy hair and a healthy scalp will in turn aid in bet­ter and faster hair growth.

Hair Ex­pert and Direc­tor, The Blowdry Bar Our hair grows from the root so cut­ting hair has no ef­fect on hair growth. The less we cut, the faster we reach our de­sired length. Our hair is made up of pro­tein and when we do not con­sume a healthy diet, our hair gets af­fected. This can lead to hair dam­age and cause split-ends. Harsh chem­i­cal treat­ments and reg­u­lar use of heat tools can fur­ther cause split-ends which, if left untreated, gen­er­ally break off at higher rate, than the length we might trim any­way. For those who love colour­ing or treat­ing their hair, on-time trims (that is, reg­u­lar trims ev­ery three months) can help keep hair healthy and strong and pre­vent­ing them from break­ing.
