Split ends are every girls worst nightmare, and the longer you leave them, they worse they get, as the split eventually travels up the hair shaft and damages your hair further. A lot of people get their hair trimmed every 6 weeks, but I'm not one of those people. If I can see that my hair is damaged, then I will gladly go and get a trim, but if after 6 weeks my hair is still in good condition with no split ends in sight, then I'll leave it be.
One thing I always do in between haircuts (I only get my hair cut maybe 3 times a year) is once every few weeks, I take a good look at my hair and cut off any split or damaged ends myself. I don't have the time, patience or money to be going to the hairdressers every couple of months, and to be honest I don't really trust hairdressers. Time and time again I've asked for an inch off the bottom and it turns into 4 inches, so because of this, I only go in for the chop a few times a year.
Invest in some haircutting scissors and go through your hair yourself. More often than not, most of my hair is in good condition, and there are only a few strands that have split ends, so I much prefer chopping them off myself rather than spending money on a professional when only a dozen hairs need to be cut off.
All I do is separate my hair into sections, and go through them one by one, having a look and seeing if there are any strands that need to be cut. It saves me a lot of money and time and I definitely think this is the better suited solution for me.
If you have damaged hair that does need to be cut every 6 weeks, then by all means go ahead to the hairdressers and have your hair cut every 6 weeks, this method is for the people with hair in pretty good condition, that doesn't need that much attention from hair dressers.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who does this, so if you do this too, leave me a comment!
