I’m surprised your stylist didn’t want you to have regular trims (10-12 weeks) while growing out. It actually hurts the growing process to not have the ends trimmed.

Anyway, I would probably talk to your stylist. You’re going to have to get a LOT trimmed off to clean it up, so she/he may suggest just leaving it until you chop it after.

@vorpalette:  Agreed. I’m surprised as well.

OP if your ends are really as bad as you say you may just get a light dusting trim to really remove the fried ends as a band-aid of sorts for your wedding.

You can also do a K-pak conditioning treatment (made by Joico) to help the overall condition of your hair and ends. They are relatively inexpensive and you can get the packet at a local beauty supply store. Put on your hair and put your hair up under a shower cap and wrap your head a towel (the more warmth the better). Leave in for 30 minutes and then rinse.

I don’t think NOT getting a haircut will affect your updo. I am a serial non-trimmer, mainly because I cut my own hair (about once a year). Trimming the ends has zero effect on what’s going on at the roots. It won’t make your hair grow any faster, I promise. That said, having trimmed ends will make your hair easier to style, since split ends tend to tangle.

Bottom line: if you want a trim, get one. Your hair is plenty long enough to take at least an inch off without it affecting any updo you might get.

You’re lucky that you can be low-maintenance! I have to blow dry and heat style every day, and have to trim every 7 weeks, otherwise my hair is unruly. 🙁

trimming does not make it grow faster but if you have split end galore, it will fray all the way up the shaft therefore breaking off. So trims aka dusting 1/4 of an inch every 6-10 wks depending on how much heat you use on your hair is the healthiest thing to do! I recently cut 4.5 inches off in July(stress reliever I think was the reason) and my hair has grown back mostly already.Like an inch a month. I also take prenatals and Biotin 5000 mcg. No split ends. That and all my bleached blonde regrowth was cut off too. Been brunette for almost a yr. and its so healthy now!

OP get like an inch off now and then maybe a PWC:)
