Split ends trimming- is it necessary while growing hair?

Hello guys:) Today I’m going to tell you a little bit more about trimming split ends.  Can we avoid it while growing hair? Or is it always absolutely necessary?

My hair grows really slowly. I always have to wait a couple of months to see any difference in the length. “Painful” thought about losing even an inch is never nice and easy for us, am I right girls?

In the beginning of my proper hair care, I was trying to avoid trimming because I believed “it’s not necessary” and “there is too much to lose”.  I also wanted to prove that everybody around is wrong:). Until the moment I saw that picture of my hair:
I must confess that, it was quite upsetting for me. I was trying really hard to nourish and moisturize my hair for a couple of months and the result was… pathetic. At least the top of my hair looks quite all right here, but split ends spoil everything:)
I decided to cut off a little bit of my hair (but I had no courage to get rid of all damaged part- today I regret it).

hair treatments can’t repair split ends completely! They can only mask the problem for a while, but not solve it. Basically, damaged and split ends “travel” further up, so despite the proper care, your hair will still look badly:(

After the first step of getting rid of split ends, I decided to cut them off every time they look dry and too frizzy or when I notice more breakage.
It’s still not too often, but at least I try to do it regularly. I know that I should cut much more off, but I’m so stubborn! Help!

I’ll describe my trimming accessories soon.

Does trimming make hair grow faster? The answer is no, but it is undoubted that it helps hair to be healthier and to look better. It also stops damaged part to go further up, so cutting should be an essential point of the hair routine. You can try to do it like me- less hair but more often, but I would advise cutting as much as you can bear at once:D

Of course, it’s also important to protect ends against heat and other damaging factors. You can read my basic hair tips HERE.

When you try to grow your hair it’s not funny and easy to cut your ends regularly.
I hated that thought of losing what I was waiting for at least a couple of months.
Today I know: shorter but healthy hair always looks better than hair long, but dry and damaged with split ends.

Do you agree? Do you cut your hair regularly?
See you soon and thank you for visiting:))

    Split ends – my nightmare…. I fight with this problem since ages and nothing seems to help. I just cut my hair regularly but in the same time I try to nourish my body, so my hair are growing fast. Thanks to this technic I managed to keep my hair long. I am 100% agreeing with you : better to have shorter hair, then long and looking tired and not healthy. P.S. I read, that sleeping on a silk pillowcases is helping, because we don’t loose hair during the night. Maybe we should try this advice 🙂

    I get mine trimmed ever 12 weeks when I get my keratin and foil and it definitely does not make it grow faster (sigh), but it looks better for sure.

    I have horrible split ends and am guilty of not getting my hair cut as often as I should! I am wanting to grow my hair out and have heard to get your hair trimmed regularly in order to grow it out, but it’s hard to believe that!

    I have not had a trim in a year or more. I really need to because my hair is a MESS. I am 5 months postpartum and have that whole hair falling out annoyingness and I am so ready for that to be over.

  5. katriza says:

    I hate split ends and its funny because I can never seem to get rid of them! I try to use more heat protecting products but it never seems to work! I’m trying to grow my hair out too and think it’s important to keep the ends healthy!

  6. robin says:

    I love that you did the before and after photos it really proves the point that trimming hair makes it look healthier. I’ll sacrifice a little length for healthier looking hair!

  7. Krysten says:

    I’ve always wondered the same thing! When growing my hair out, I used to just shy away from going to get my hair trimmed, but it looks like it makes a huge difference.

    This post is perfect for me! My hair is so damaged and I’ve been trying everything! Changing shampoos and nothing is working! Great tips! Will definitely try!

    Split ends are the worst, even brushing your hair gives you split ends. I do get a little trim every so often, it definitely makes your hair look and feel healthier.

    I haven’t trimmed my ends for about 2 years now. I have long curly dry hair and my hair is in desperate need of a trim. But I want to cut it short this year so it’ll be trimmed. Your hair is very pretty.

    Trimming is really important especially if you use a lot of products and heat on your hair on a regular basis. This is so helpful! It’s important to take good care of our hair.

    I remembered spit ends during my teens but haven’t had any for decades. I try to avoid heat or blow dryer all together. I’m happy to have a free split ends days. I agree trimming more regularly will help too.
