Does trimming your hair really make it grow faster?


Is it true that trimming your ends minimum every 3 months allows your hair to grow faster?

If you keep cutting it, how will it ever get longer?

No, trimming your hair ends has absolutely no effect on the growth which happens at the root. Removing weak ends that would otherwise snap off allows your hair to remain healthy longer, giving it the appearance of growing faster.

Here is a similar discussion that has some good advise on improving your hair health:

to remove split ends

I have long hair, 1 inch trim remove the split ends. I trim every two months, earlier if the split ends happen to come early.

Like mamaluv said its a total myth. The only thing that has to do with hair growth is all about the blood supplying the follicles. Which means getting all your proper vitamins and stimulation with a good head message especially each time you wash your hair. :)

I agree

Trimming your hair won't make it grow any faster, it will just keep it healthy.

Somewhat true

It dones't make your hair grow faster. HOWEVER, if you have dry ends or split ends, that will prevent hair growth so by cutting them off your hair will grow more/faster.
