6 Signs That You Need A Trim

When it's time for a trim our hair will often give us signs to let us know. Beneath I've composed a list of 6 signs that your hair may be giving you to let you know that it's time for a much needed snip snip.

1) You have noticeable split ends
If you have noticeable split ends, trimming your hair is a good idea. There are no ways to permanently repair split ends despite what manufactures lead you to believe but there are ways to prevent them, ie minimising your use of styling tools and effective deep conditioning.

2) Your hair Tangles Frequently
If your hair is frequently tangling this may be an indication of damage. Damaged hair will tangle with other strands making daily styling a task. This is especially noticeable for those with fine strands.

3)You are not retaining any length
This essentially means that your hair is breaking off at the same rate it is growing. This may be an indication that you need a trim and may also need to alter elements of your regimen.

4) You can't remember when your last trim was
If you cannot remember when your last trim is this may be a sign that you need a trim. I keep a hair diary of my washdays, protective styles, use of new products and trims etc.. By doing so I can easily pinpoint what agrees and disagrees with my hair.

5) Your hair is lacking in volume
If your hair no longer looks as full as it once had, this may be an indication that your strands are starting to taper at the ends.

6) Your hair is breaking when you handle it
If you have more small broken hairs than shed hairs when handling your hair then it is time for a trim.
