dumb question-how can you tell when you need a trim?

Hi,

Since I've bee wearing my hair curly and growing out layers, I can't tell when I need to get a trim. My last haircut was mid-November.

The shape of my hair looks good, but I think the ends are starting to lose their curl. Does that mean they need trimming? I want to continue to grow my hair longer (it's currently about shoulder length) but I want to keep it healthy.

My last cut was by a Devachan trained stylist, but he said he needed to cut it wet the first time, and would do it dry for my second cut. I still don't get the logic in that, but I am eager to get my first dry hair cut.

Thanks-
Sherry
That's what my hair does when it needs a trim. The ends don't curl as well.

I'm no expert but I'm thinking that if the ends are dry, tangly, dried out etc. then it might be that time. I only get trims like every 6 months, I'm trying to grow it out long.

It's not about having what you want, it's about Wanting what you have
When I need a trim, my ends start looking flyaway, dry and pointy...and don't curl very well. I also notice a lot of asymmetry.

I need to trim mine already. It seems like my ends get uneven and trail off and not curl as well. I'm trying to grow it out a bit so my layers aren't so short but I seem to need to trim it often. I guess that means it's growing well but I hate to cut much off.

I'm taking a tiny tiny bit off to blunt the ends. I'm doing that in the morning.
Ah the joys of growing out hair eh?

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Thank you!

I wish I could go six months without getting my hair cut, but it would look terrible. The ends don't feel dry, though. I think my hair is getting healthier. I'm hoping after the dry cut that I'll be able to go a couple of months without needing a trim.

Take care,
Sherry
My ends weren't dry but I trimmed just a tiny tiny bit today. My hair bounced back so nicely! I swear it needs to let me go longer between cuts but I'm so glad I got bouncier curls today yay!
