Beauty Tip of the Week
HOW LONG DO YOU WAIT IN BETWEEN HAIR CUTS?
I've always heard that the general rule is between 6 to 8 weeks, and I'm totally guilty of waiting longer than that more times than not. Oops!
Did you know that the type of hair cut you have determines how long you should wait till you're next cut? I didn't know that until my friend that is a hairdresser recently told me. She said she always discusses the "expiration" date with each person's hair she cuts because every single hair cut is different. After she told me that I had to share this with you guys and thankfully she gave me the lowdown. Here it is:
Long Hair - 6-8 weeks: Don't wait too much longer than that because really long hair needs extra love and attention on the ends as well.
Medium to Long Hair- 8-12 weeks: This is the most flexible hair length as far as cut maintenance goes. You can go get a cut when it feels too heavy or you notice a lot of split ends. Some people can wait 10 to 12 weeks especially if you're growing it out.
Textured layers or razor cuts- 4-8 weeks (depending on texture): Curly/Wavy hair usually gets longer slower so you can even go closer to 6 weeks. If the hair is straighter you can wait 4 to 6 weeks. She said to keep in mind that razors aren't as sharp as a good pair of scissors which means you'll probably get split ends faster than you would with a scissor cut. If you like rough textured hair proper maintenance is key.
Layers- 6-8 weeks: Once your layers are lowered an inch or two from where they started they don't move the same. The removed weight you got when you first got your layers returns.
Short or long bob- 4-6 weeks: If your hair is between your shoulders and chin then you probably know once it grows to your collarbone it starts to flip out because of the natural curve it follows. The longer your neck is the longer you can wait for a cut, if your neck is short it's going to hit your collarbone sooner.
Short cropped hair- 4-6 weeks: If you have one of those short pixie cuts its probably best to get it cut a little after 3 weeks. She said that if your hair is about 1 inch all over it can double in length in one month.
I found this interesting and Im so glad she shared all this info with me so I could share it with you guys. Now I know I can weight at least 12 weeks since I have medium to long hair before going back for another hair cut.
Did anyone else know about these different time frames for different hair cuts? Maybe I was the only one out of the loop. Let me know!!
