Default Got my hair cut in February: When should I go again?

I was reading articles and they say for curly hair to wait for 4 to 6 months for your next cut. Is this true?

Note: I'm trying to grow my hair out.

Its true. My stylist after my BC told me that if I intended to grow my hair out, to minimize exposure to the scissors and ramp up the home care (DT/PT, basic care) and at least see the stylist every 6 mths for maintenance, and even then maintenance may not include a cut b/c of our conditioning habits our hair is stronger and we need it less often. It all depends on your hair.

Gosh I used to go every 2 months or so to get a trim because stylists would always tell me that I need to keep taking the split ends off in order for it to grow. Damnit, lol. No more scissors....for another 5 months!

I think the every-2-months thing is a racket. It's to get customers to come back more often and spend money. I just tend to be skeptical whenever someone who's aim is to make money off of me says you HAVE to do something every X amount of time.

Of course, it's all different if you have short hair (and want to keep it that way), or if you really DO need a cut.

But I find that it really is no problem to go 4-5-6 months between cuts, as long as the hair is happy and healthy.

I think for people who have a shape they like, to maintain that shape, yes, every 8 weeks is not bad for layered hair. (When I blew dry, I needed to go every 6 to 8 to keep the length I wanted for volume).

For curly hair, if you like the shape you have and like it as it grows out, no need to get it trimmed often. I would probably go more frequently than 6 mos cause I like shorter hair around my face and I don't like it too long in the back and want to keep it around upper bra line. My hair grows pretty fast.

I also need regular coloring to cover my gray, and that's about every 4 months, prolly go to 3 as the gray covers more and more of me. At that time, I'd consider a mild trim, natch.

It's very individual. For gals who like a shorter, croppier do, that would need to be cut more frequently than seekers-of-length.
