Cutting your hair promotes further growth.
If you're in dire need of a hair cut, don't wait any longer.
Hair tends to grow 1/2 an inch per month, sometimes textured and/or afro hair may seem to grow a little slower but that is due to the curls bouncing up, simply pull a curl straight and you’ll see the true length of your hair.
It is important to keep up with your hair. Your hair should be trimmed every three to six months.
Is not a bad idea to know how to do maintenance cuts without the help of professionals, especially now if you're not able to see your hairstylist due to the pandemic.
In order to start, all you will need is haircutting scissors or normal scissors
two mirrors and a wide-tooth comb.
To begin, wash and condition your hair with a product of your choice.
Towel dry your hair until 80%. With a wide-tooth comb, blow-dry the rest of the hair, this will help keep the hair in its natural state while simultaneously stretching it for length.
Grab your mirrors and make sure to position them around you for a 360 view, make sure you're able to see what you are cutting from all angles.
Section your hair into four parts. Be careful not to cut vertically but instead horizontally.
It is recommended to trim your hair every 8-12 weeks, this will help with growth and you'll also deal with split ends ahead of time, before it spreads throughout your hair.
It’s best to use as little heat as possible to not damage your hair. If you want to do a length check to see how long your hair is when straight, use a blow dry rather than using hot straightening irons.
