For many years, there has been a common belief that getting a haircut not only helps to tidy up the hair and make it easier to comb but also promotes faster growth. And everyone rushed to the hairdresser more often to make their hair grow faster and thicker. At the same time, women didn't think about the fact that this belief might be mistaken, says Woman's World. Frequent trims make your hair grow faster: Fact or myth

Is there a need to trim your hair more often

Experts assure that there is no correlation between how often you trim your hair and how quickly it grows - none at all.

Surprised? After all, a large part of stylists and hairdressers only talk about the need to trim hair more often, and glossy magazines have instilled this mistaken belief in us for many years.

But in reality, there is no connection here and there can't be. If the hair grows from the root, then how can it be related to trimming the ends? Not at all.

What's the benefit of a hair trimming

Even though hair won't grow faster after a haircut, trimming the ends matters. Firstly, this is how you can get rid of split ends that balms and shampoos don't help.

Secondly, if you don't trim long hair for a long time, it becomes thinner, and you'll have to trim much more during your next visit to the hairdresser than you planned.

And one more important fact. Haircut frequency does not affect the speed of hair growth because this parameter is genetically determined in each person. Typically, an average woman's hair grows 1-2 cm per month.

To speed up growth, it's worth eating well and adding vitamins, minerals, and proteins to your diet. Also take care of your hair with masks, shampoo, oil, and high-quality conditioners.
