Ladies we all know times are hard and we have to cut back on our expenses but our haircuts are not the area we need to skimp on. Weather you are trying to get a new style or just maintaining the style you have, a good haircut can really make the difference for the health of your hair. Even if you are trying to grow your hair out it is important to get haircuts on a regular basis and is especially true if you color your hair or put any other chemicals in it on a regular basis. Long hair should be trimmed at least every 8 to 12 weeks to maintain strong healthy hair and to get rid of dead or split ends. For most people with medium length hair they should have their hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks and for short hair every 4-8 weeks. Every individuals hair is different and will grow at different rates so speaking to your stylist about how oftent to get your hair cut is best. Another aspect to think about is the quality of the cut, sure in the beginning you may pay a little more up front for a great haircut but in the long run it will pay off. Your cut is going to last longer and look much better than if you skimp out and get a cheap cut. So the quality and the frequency of a haircut is crucial for the health of your hair.
