Q: I’m trying to grow my hair out. Why do I need a haircut?
A: Even when your goal is to grow your hair longer, regular maintenance trims are still a good idea and should happen every 6-8 weeks. Just a ¼ inch off the edges can make a huge difference in how the hair looks, feels, and behaves. Unkempt ends can split, become fuzzy, and continue to unravel up the hair shaft, causing breakage, defeating the purpose of growing the hair longer. Cleaning these edges up regularly can help to prevent this, and make the process less awkward.
