how often do you get your hair ends trimmed if you're trying to grow it long?and do you trim them yourself or go to your hairdresser's? oh,and if you do trim your ow hair,how exactly do you do that?

Please do not cut your own hair!!! No matter what people tell you it is impossible to get it straight in the back and then your stylist just ends up having to fix it and it irritates us!! hhahaha.. I cant even cut my own hair and I'm a professional!

Throughout my life I've been told to have my hair trimmed every six weeks. So every month and a half I'm supposed to go in and have just a little trimmed off, to get rid of any split ends. This allows the hair to actually grow faster. I don't go that often any more, but at least I know I should. lol

It is supposed to make the hair grow fast because split ends keep healthy cells from growing. So getting rid of split ends lets the healthy hair grow instead of slowing down its progress. At least that's what they always told me.

Very true!! I myself am a stylist, and it is best to get your hair trimmed every six weeks. It does help it grow faster because if you don't trim it the ends just keep splitting and it may grow but it will not be healthy it will just be split! Also another big thing in taking care of your hair is good products!
