Whether you are looking to grow your hair our or wanting to keep your look sharp and well-groomed, you need to know how important it is to get regular haircuts. We recommend getting a trim at least once ever two to three months, sometimes less if you have been blessed with fast growing follicles.
Having a haircut on a regular basis will help prevent damaged, tired and flat looking hair. The longest part of your hair is the oldest, it takes the brunt of any heat or chemical damage and can often leave your hair looking lifeless. Check out are top reasons for the importance of a regular haircut.
Healthy hair is easier to manage and that is a fact! The time that you currently spend styling your hair will be slashed with regular trims, leaving more time on grooming that beard.
Less Damaged Split Ends
Your hair gets damaged over time from heat, sun, sea and chemicals, which in turn lead to split ends and damage. To help overcome this and protect your hair: always use the right heat protecting products and home hair treatments, your barber or stylist can you help out with this. Less split ends will keep your hair healthier and looking great.
Thicker Hair Illusion
If you are one of the unlucky guys who have thinning or receding hair, then regular trims could be the solution for you. Believe it or not but cutting off those wispy ends could trick people in thinking that your hair is thicker than it actually is.
If you have severe hair loss, ask your hairstylist for a haircut that will draw attention away from your balding crown, or try modern hair replacement systems to conceal the bald spots.
Maintain Shape and Style
The one accessory that you can’t change every day is your hair, if it doesn’t suit your face shape then you probably won’t feel as confident as you should. Regular trims will allow for better styling, we aren’t saying that you shouldn’t try new styles but always run the idea past your barber (and don’t change your mind mid trim). Some skilled barbers will use feather razors to get a cool, stylish look for their clients too – just ask if they have one.
Other Factors to Consider
Keep your hair clean, nutritional and full of natural oils with the use high quality shampoos, conditioners and treatments. If you want to keep that fresh barbershop look, make sure that you are using sulphate and parabin free products as they won’t dry your hair out.
We have said it before and we will say it again, always be honest with your barber or stylist and ask for hair care advice. These guys are the experts and deal with different shapes, styles, textures and colours every day. The best way to achieve a salon style look is to invest in some salon products, don’t be frugal when it comes to hair care as once it’s gone, it’s gone.
