How to Make Your Haircut Last

February 28, 2013 | By | Comments (2)


My hair falls well past the middle of my back—and I happen to be extremely particular about keeping it that way. Haircuts can be expensive but my stubbornness stems mostly from the fact that I can’t bear to part with my long locks and am terrified that my stylist is going to go scissor-happy on me. Regular haircuts are important, but here are a few tricks to prolong the inevitable trim:

– Use a daily leave-in conditioner to keep your ends hydrated.
– When split ends begin to appear (usually five to six weeks after a cut) try an at-home glossing treatment to help seal strands and add shine.
– If you have bangs, you can (carefully!) trim your own bangs by smoothing down hair with a comb, then holding your scissors so that the tips point up at a slight angle, and trim a small amount at a time.

    That leave-in conditioner is a fabulous tip- I have used it on and off for years, and does wonders for my coloured hair! Highly recommended!

    Something else to keep in mind: many stylists trim bangs for free or at a reduced price between scheduled appointments! Stylists often cut hair so that it looks its best a few weeks out, but if you don’t ask (and if they’re trying to impress a new customer!) they may cut your hair so it looks best immediately after the cut. If you ask, they may be able to give you a style that will last longer before your next visit to the salon. So in general it can help to be loyal to your stylist! The tips will save you in the long run :)
