I haven’t been to a beauty salon in years and when I decided to start going again just to have my hair relaxed every 8 weeks or so every beautician I interviewed suggested clipping my ends! I said I want to grow my hair not make it shorter! I even had one girl suggest to clip my ends every week! I guess that’s why this specific girl was wearing a ton of false hair!
This is one of the reasons why our hair doesn’t get any longer because we are constantly cutting our hair. Hair on average grows 1/2 inch a month and if you let some scissor happy hair stylist cut your hair every six weeks your hair isn’t going to get any longer!
Hair is not rose bushes! It’s dead so clipping the ends is not going to make more hair grow or stop breakage and split ends for that matter. I have no idea where this stupid idea of clipping the ends to make the hair grow came from, but if we use common sense we’d understand that this will never make the hair grow faster.
If you have split ends my advice to you is to clip the split ends only, next deep condition your hair with a protein enriched conditioner such as the Aphogee 2-step Protein Treatment or Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise Treatment. These are both really good protein treatments that can help repair damaged hair and stop breakage. You should condition your hair weekly anyways to maintain your hair, but do not use the Aphogee conditioner weekly. It is only to be used once every 6 weeks.
Don’t let anyone clip your ends again if you want to achieve length. Grow your hair for 12 months without getting it cut, by then you should have about 6 new inches of hair. At the end of the 12 months you may visit a trustworthy stylist that will respect your wishes and trim no more than 1/2 -1 inch of your hair just to even your hair out and make it look neat.
The myth of clipping your ends has finally been dispelled. If your hair is damaged don’t cut it off, condition it, and clip only whats damaged to repair it.
