You may have heard that a regular trim will make your hair grow faster. However do you think that is true or false?
It is likely that you think a regular trim will not make your hair grow faster. If that is the case, then you would be correct. Hair growth begins at your scalp, in the follicles. The rate in which your hair grows is unaffected by how often you get your hair cut, hair styled or hair coloured.
So why is there a myth about a regular trim as a way to make your hair grow faster?
It’s because a regular trim makes your hair look and feel healthier. It also means that those split ends are chopped off which results in less breakage a flyaway hair. This results in thicker and shinier looking hair. The healthier your hair the more chance it has of growing longer as it is stronger. It is healthy and strong because of those regular trims.
Due to the fact your hair is breaking less, it means that your hair will appear to grow faster and therefore longer, in a shorter about of time.
No amount of styling products, shampoos or haircuts will have a real effect on your hair growth. As we have said before, hair growth is down to the hair follicles in your scalp.
There are some vitamins that are said to be a good supplement for your hair. Things such as Biotin and Vitamin C, Zinc, Iron and marine extracts. These vitamins are said to nourish your hair follicles with the nutrients they need. This can result in thicker, longer and healthier hair.
While regular trims may not help your hair grow any faster they are still important. A regular trim will help promote the appearance of healthier and longer hair.
