Here’s a confession: I’m afraid to get haircuts.
Have you ever had a hair cut that turned out just too short for your liking? In my experience, it’s always been that way. I may even say I’m traumatized to get a hair cut, just because I know it would always go wrong. I think my mother’s home hair cuts are to blame. I’m scarred for life.
But let’s talk about you. When was the last time you got a haircut? If you’re someone like me who doesn’t get my hair trimmed regularly, you might want to read ahead to know when you should get a hair cut.
See, haircuts are not all about looks. Most people I know love growing out their hair because it looks feminine and sexy, but what you don’t realize is that not cutting will only damage the hair further. Here’s what I mean.
Hair maintenance is not all about hair products. Proper maintenance includes a lovely haircut, and here are the most obvious signs that your hair needs at least a trim, or maybe even more.
1. Your hair is falling out more than usual.
Is your shower drain clogged with hair? Do you keep finding hair on your pillow even just by lying down motionless? Is your hairbrush more hair than brush bristles? Well, that means your hair is weak and brittle and therefore needs a whole lot of TLC.
2. Your hair has lost its shape.
You’ll know that you’ve outgrown a hairstyle when your hair loses its glorious original shape as when you last stepped out of the salon. It’s always a good time to pamper yourself and visit your stylist to have your hair restyled. Those dead and split ends need to be chopped off to get your lively, bouncy hair back.
3. And while we’re on the topic of split ends… you’ve got plenty of them.
If the ends of your hair are dry and stiff, you might want to take a closer look. Split ends mean you’re due for a haircut. Wrap your hair’s ends around your finger to check. If you see smooth strands with a couple of strands sticking out, you’re good to go. But if your hair looks more pine tree-like, then it’s probably time to get that chopped off.
4. Your hair is falling flat.
And I’m not talking about the usual flat, shiny look after a rebonding treatment and the sort. I’m talking about lifeless flat. If your hair loses volume, it usually tends to go flat, which means you need to take it to the salon for a haircut to get its shape back.
5. You’re not rapunzel, but it tangles way too easy.
Waking up with bed hair is normal. But if you’re waking up with a nest for hair, then take a trip to the salon, stat. Hair tends to knot up more as it grows longer. You may own the best detangling comb in the world, but regularly detangling the hair is harsh on the strands and follicles, and the hair will only break when too much force is applied. And don’t say I didn’t warn you, but this will then take you back to number one– where your hair is falling more than usual. We have come full circle here, so get a haircut, now!
