We have always been told that you should trim your hair regularly to help it grow faster. We have always been told that regular trims will help your hair grow faster but is it true or is it just a myth? Read on to know more.

Do Regular Trims Make Your Hair Grow Faster?

Trimming your hair on a regular basis doesn’t stimulate hair growth. Therefore, the answer to the question in all our minds is no. This is because air grows from the follicles on our scalp, not the end of our hair. Trimming the ends won’t affect the hair follicles on the top, thus there won’t be an effect on our hair growth when we trim the dead ends. 

Do Regular Trims Make Your Hair Grow Thicker?

The thickness of your hair depends upon factors like genetics, environment, age and health. Therefore, trimming won’t affect the density of your hair but it can make your hair look thicker. 

Why Get Regular Trims?

Trimming your hair will certainly not make it grow faster but this doesn’t mean that you should give up trimming your hair. While it doesn’t help you grow it faster, it has other benefits including making your hair look healthier, thicker and shinier. This is because all the dead ends and damaged hair have been chopped off.

Trimming your hair regularly is a healthy practice as it helps to grow your hair in the right direction as well as maintains the texture and length of your hair. 

Also, trimming is important if your hair is prone to split ends as these tend to make your hair weak, thus making them break easily and hampering the growth of your hair. 

Although your hair will easily grow back after a trim, if you still don’t want to hamper the growth of your hair and still want to get rid of the split ends, then ask your hairdresser to just dust your hair in order to remove all the split ends
