Did You Know That Thinning Ends Will Cause More Breakage? 4 Clues That Its Time To Trim

4 clues that it's time to trim

There she is, the girl who has long hair with stringy, frazzled ends. These are ends that look like they are just dying to be cut off and thrown away for good yet she refuses to cut her hair, believing that if she does then her hair will be “short”. What she doesn't realize is that she’s headed down that road regardless because damaged and split ends only lead to more damaged and split ends.

No one wants to get an involuntary pixie cut because they were trying to hang on to unhealthy length right? If the ends of your hair are see through and straggly looking, chances are you are the girl referenced above and you need to do something about it.

Don’t get upset! We've all been there. We get so hung up on the length of our hair that we forget about the health of our hair from root to tip. If your goal is long and healthy hair, then you won’t get there by hanging on to hair that is the complete opposite.

Whenever I do twist-outs, braid-outs, bantu knot-outs, etc. my ends tend to stay frizzy and not respond to whatever styling product I applied to them (usually SheaMoisture Curly Enhancing Smoothie). But they’re not thinner than the rest of my hair or see through. They are drier, but i don’t know if that’s because it’s the oldest part of my hair or because they’re dead ends. I’m a “scissor happy” natural and tend to clip away about 1/4″ of my ends every 6 weeks to 2 months. Do I need a trim or do I just have dry ends?
