Being dead doesn't mean it's not healthy, it's still created by a living organism. Split ends hurt your hair making it brittle and prone to breakage. Trimming them stops split ends from breaking further up your hair, making your hair less likely to break.


Trims do NOT encourage (or prevent) hair growth, much less make it grow any quicker! Hair grows from the roots in your scalp, not from the ends. It could care less if it's trimmed. By the way: all of your hair is dead, except for that which is growing at the roots.


Don't be stupid ! Hair grows from the roots in your scalp, not from the ends. Having split ends will not make it stop growing. They're just split. All of your hair is dead, except for that which is growing at the roots. If your dumb theory were correct, a person with a shaved head could never grow hair again! DUH!!!


Hair won't want to grow if it has split ends though. So, really, a common myth is that trims will not make your hair grow, not vice versa.


Also a Hairstyist, in their defense, the bangs grow long and in a person's eyes and they will be cutting them their self if we do not do it for them! I do!! LOL. Also, as a person's hair grows, the head is round, so if the hair is layered, it will loose it's shape quickly. I have re-spaped haircuts for over 40 years taking nothing more than 1/4 inch off just to renew the ends. I believe in trims.


I think what they forgot to mention is split ends. That's the real reason you should get a trim, because if you don't, the hair shaft with split even further and your hair will get brittle. No, it won't make your hair grow more, but if you have to cut off a lot each time because of split ends, it kinda works out.


This is not entirely true. Taking care of your hair is what will keep it healthy and help it to grow. Trimming the ends of your hair is not going to control the speed of growth... On average hair grows 1/4 to 1/2 an inch per month. If you are cutting that much off each month... you will end up with either the same length of hair or even be getting shorter and shorter. You ONLY need a haircut that often if you have split ends or if you are trying to maintain a specific length. If you are trying to grow your hair, keep your hair healthy and use a heat protectant when blowdrying, straightening, curling etc... so that you won't have to get hair cuts often. Hairstylists that tell you, you need to get your hair cut every 6-8 weeks just want your money. You could get a hair cut once a year if you please. - Licensed Hairstylist
