VintageGirl1020:  I’m sorry to hear. Let me share my hair horror story lol. I went for a haircut in October and was specific about cutting some length but adding layers. My hair was pass halfway down my back. The guy completely effed up my hair as in it was all choppy and uneven and cut off so much! I was in hysterics when I got home and straightened my hair to see the work. I ended up going somewhere else to get it fixed and ended up with short hair as in to my chin because this guy completely screwed it up. The hair stylist that fixed it for me felt so awful and told me that had the guy cut off an inch more he would’ve had to given me a bob! It’s grown a bit since then of course but it’s not long enough for the beach waves and I contemplated getting extensions. Last minute, I decided not to because of the expense and because I realized that I would still look beautiful in my fiancés eyes and that was all that mattered. 

You still have some time to let it grow just no more trims!!

I trim my hair every 6 weeks (myself) and since this time last year my hair has grown about 6-8 inches. The thing is that during the year I don’t notice a difference until I looked back at old photos.

VintageGirl1020:  My hair grows really fast. I get it cut about 2 to 3 months like you.  They rarely sugest more than an inch unless I have a bug to cut it shorter. In fact I have a hair apt this coming week for color and cut.  In fact this time around it has been 4 months since my last cut!

When I’m growing my hair out I go every 6 months, when I’m maintaining every 2-3 months. To grow it out without much damage I avoid using hot tools, make sure to prime my hair before I do blow dry or flat iron if I do, use strengthening hair products, only use a very wide tooth comb but no brushes (unless I’m doing my hair for an event), avoid hair elastics (I use clips or those elastic ribbons which are less likely to chafe your hair), and I have a silk pillowcase. I also have virgin hair which probably helps, especially the fact I don’t need to dye it while trying to grow it.  Oh, and I also only wash my hair every other day on average, which may or may not be important?

my hair has grown quite long.. It was ear length 3 years ago and now it’s past my bra strap. Ive seen a few hairdressers, once every 6 months (because I keep moving..), and all have commented on how strong and healthy my hair is, and never want to cut it more than to shape it.

I have long hair and I honesty get my hair cut once a year. I cut off a bunch of inches and then let it grow out. I have pretty healthy hair. i haven’t  found a stylist I love and the last person I saw said I should trim it every few months. I don’t think I’ll do that unless I get a style that requires more work.

I’m growing my hair for our wedding, my hairdresser knows this and asks how much to take off – I tell her the bare minimum. If your stylist knows you are trying to grow your hair but cuts off inches everytime I would be looking for a new stylist.

Trimming your hair does not have anything to do with the rate it grows out of your scalp. If you choose to trim every 6-8 weeks I’d say trim just about 1/4 of an inch if you can get away with it.

I get a generous trim every 3 months and my hair is long, beautful and healthy. I stayed away from trimming because I wanted to grow it out and all it’s done is improve the qualityo f my hair.

Just trim off any split ends yourself. If its that long, its easy to pull to the front and trim a little bit.

is_a_belle:  I trim my own elongated pixie cut. Salon visits are not mandatory for anyone. There are plenty of resources online to learn about cutting hair. When you can’t afford to go, and you dont have a good styist, you figure out a way to get it done.

Cutting your hair removes hair so if you want to grow it cut it as infrequently as possible. When I’m growing my hair I cut it 2-3 times a year and it stays in great shape. I’ll go from shoulder length to bra strap length in a year. Cutting your hair to grow it is counterintuitive and your hairdresser is wrong

Trimming your hair doesn’t affect how quickly it grows out of your scalp. I have no idea why people say that, because it’s illogical af. It might look longer if the ends are healthy instead of wispy and damaged.

I get mine trimmed roughly on that schedule and it’s super healthy. The fact that I don’t use any products other than shampoo, conditioner, and a little serum on the ends and only heat style it 1-2x a month max helps with healthiness and preserving length more than getting it trimmed often. When I go in for a haircut, I ask my stylist to trim off the absolute minimum that’s necessary to get rid of any split ends, and she usually takes off an inch.

I generally find that the opposite is true. If I go for frequent trims, ie every six weeks or so, they can take off less than that month’s growth if I’m growing it out. The reason they say the hair “grows faster” IMO is that they don’t have to trim as much to keep the split ends at bay. And of course split ends can break off by themselves.

babygrandmabee :  But you do trim it frequently yourself, though, not just every 3-4 months like my Mother-In-Law with her long straight hair, right? That’s what I meant with the edit, that someone needs to shape short hair more often than every 3 months. Doesn’t mean it has to be in a salon!

It depends how healthy your hair is. If you’re prone to split ends, it’s good to get them trimmed to stop the split from going up. Mine is in good shape so I’ve never noticed any difference other than just losing length. I get it trimmed about once every 6 weeks because it grows insanely fast and I hate when it gets past my elbows.
