For many women, the old saying that a woman’s crown and glory is her hair is true. Women are very attached to their hair and go to great lengths to take care of it. They perm it, color it, straighten it, highlight it, mousse it, gel it, spray it, condition it and curl it in order to achieve the look they want. Speaking of lengths, many women spend years growing their hair out and no matter how damaged it is, how long it is or how desperately they should have it cut, many will refuse to part with that excess hair. There are many advantages to cutting hair though and the benefits of cutting outweigh the benefits of continuing to let it grow without even a trim. Cutting a significant amount of hair off will allow for a healthy new cut that will be softer, brighter and healthier. A new cut can shape the face and give you a whole new look that is more current and different from your usual style. Getting even a short trim every six to eight weeks will get rid of those pesky split ends and allows hair to grow quicker and healthier. Cutting hair is beneficial to the overall health of your hair and, whether you think it does or not, trims do help hair grow quicker. Below are some tips to help you overcome your fear of getting your hair cut and some tips to get the best cut that suits you every time.
