Whether you are in bad haircut purgatory or simply long for longer hair, most women have yearned for the secret to fast growing hair. You may have heard that regular trims can help hair grow, but is this true? Read our hair growing tips from our stylists at the Simone Thomas hairdressers in Bournemouth & Wokingham.
Does trimming hair make it grow faster?
Trimming the ends of your hair will not increase the growth from your hair follicles. However, regular trims and eliminating any split ends will help your hair look longer and healthier. Regular hair trimming reduces hair breakage and keeps your shining glory looking thick and full.
I want to grow my hair. How often should I trim it?
Many of us believe that hair should be cut every 6-8 weeks if we want to maintain our current style. It seems logical that if we wish it to grow longer, you should wait about 8- 10 weeks. However, the optimal time of your trims will depend on your hair type:
• tight or coarse curls – every 12 weeks
• long straight hair – 8 – 12 weeks
• long, layered hair – 6 – 8 weeks
• Short styles or bobs – every 6 weeks
Genetics may also impact hair growth. Some lucky women can grow out a pixie cut in a few months, while others may struggle to grow theirs past shoulder length styles. If you are unsure, speak to your regular hair stylist. Your personal hairdresser can keep track of your hair growth journey with you and give their experienced advice on when your next appointment should be.

How can I grow my hair faster?
Forget any old myths about brushing your hair 100 times before you go to bed. The best way to help your hair grow is to ensure your body is getting enough hair-stimulating nutrients. A healthy, balanced diet is essential for a happy scalp and growing locks. A good mix of iron, protein and vitamins have proven to promote hair growth, plus make your hair look healthier and shinier.
If you feel your hair would benefit from a nutrient boost, try the Simone Thomas Wellness Gingko Wellness Plan. Gingko improves blood circulation to the scalp and the mix of vitamins increases hair growth.
For dry, thirsty hair, we recommend the Biotin Wellness Plan. This range of vitamins includes a healthy dose of Biotin, which helps the body replenish your hair with a natural shine.
If you are unsure which plan is best for you, pop into our clinic and we will suggest the right plan to help you get the results you want.
