5 Signs That Your Hair Is In Need Of A Trim

 

By: Tiffany Walker


There’s no exact time frame on when you should trim your hair, Although, some specialized in cosmetology would say every 4-6 weeks , or every season. At the end of the day it’s up to you. Here you can find some signs of when your hair may need a trim. This can help you make that decision that’s right for your particular situation.



Fairy Knots:

Also known as single strand knots. These are little knots at the end of a tiny strand of hair. This tends to happen due to split ends traveling up the shaft of the hair. Therefore, making it less easy to detangle without having an increase amount of shedding. The only thing that helps when it comes to this dilemma is a trim and deep conditioning. I prefer to deep condition with protein to help restore the split ends after the trim. I recommendMielle Organics Babassu & Mint Oil Deep Conditioner it’s a great balance of protein ( which will help with repairing your hair) and moisture.



Less Definition:

When it’s time for a trim styling your hair becomes very difficult as well. For example when doing a wash and go the ends of your hair will have less definition, it will tangle easily, and you may even have  lifeless almost straight strands at the ends of your curls. Those are all signs that we may need to clip those dead ends. No sense of keeping them around. Why you ask? It will interfere with your growth retention. Dead ends will just travel up the shaft of your hair, causing more to be cut off in the long run.


Frizz:

Some have also complained of an increase amount of frizz. Typically when they doing styles such as : Twist Outs, Braid Outs, Perm Rod Sets, and Flexi Rod Sets. The ends of the hair will not set as smoothly as it does with healthy ends. Causing major frizz and your style will not last as long. Clipping what only need to be taken off along with using moisturizing products can help that bad hair day, quickly turn to a good hair day.  Also protecting your hair with a satin scarf or bonnet can help with split ends. Protecting your hair can also help decrease the amount of frizz. Products that are great with helping frizz is theHoney & Pomegranate Curl Custard. I recommend this products after you get your necessary trim. This custard will give your wash and go some pop after trimming your hair..


Brittle/Dry Hair:

These last two signs basically go hand in hand. When you experience dry hair it can lead to it becoming brittle. It’s usually towards the end of your hair , However, it can work it’s way up your hair shaft. Precisely why you need to manage your trims carefully. After you received your necessary trim, follow up with a moisturizer to help with moisture and keeping those strands smooth. A daily moisturizer that is great to use is theMielle Organics Avocado Moisturizing Hair Milk , this moisturizer is not too thick. I highly recommend that you apply the moisturizer and follow up with theMint Almond Oil to seal in the moisture.
