Re: How often to trim hair?
I usually go every 2-3 months for a trim and to get my hair thinned out. I actually trimmed it myself the last time because several salons didn't thin out my hair enough and it felt very heavy! I check my hair for split ends or brittle ends and will definitely trim it more often if needed. Many salons offer a service called "dusting" where just the very ends are trimmed off to keep it healthy, which works great for when you are growing it out. I also cut back on my heat styling to just a few times a week, even though I also use heat protecting product every time. What absolutely helped me the most was to stop highlighting my hair as often. I am a natural brunette and would regularly get blonde highlights. Since golden blonde didn't look well with my fair skin, I got more of a cool, lighter blonde, which was pretty tough on my hair in the long run. I have it dyed back darker and plan on to go dark brown (I'm naturally light-medium brown) soon. Whenever I dye it darker, my hair feels like silk!
