As the temperature starts to creep up, more and more women are beginning to wonder: Should I cut my hair?
The summer humidity, feeling your sticky hair against your neck, and the hot weight of your hair on your head is enough to drive anyone crazy in the summer. So if you are thinking of cutting your hair this summer, we are here for it! Short hair is IN, and it is a great way to rock a fun and sexy new look. Before you cut your hair, Here are a few things to consider.
THE HEALTH OF YOUR HAIR
If this past winter and the dryness that comes with it has not been kind to your hair, a short cut is an excellent way to get a fresh start. A short cut eliminates split ends, and it helps your hair to look fuller and healthier once the limp, lifeless ends that are weighing down your hair are gone. If you are worried about losing all the length but have dead ends, you probably aren’t doing your hair any favors.
HAIR STYLING AND MAINTENANCE
The best part of having short hair is the “wake up and go” aspect of it. However, even though it can be easier to care for (depending on your cut), there is still basic care and maintenance you should do for your hair. Consider the products that you are putting on your hair, and try to make sure they are the highest possible quality.
For example, if you are worried about your hair losing some of its thickness, consider using a cleanser and conditioner that is designed specifically to double the size of each hair follicle to give you more volume. Rene Fris’ Thickening Cleanser & Conditioner does just that by using the perfect combination of vitamins and nourishment that your hair needs without weighing it down.
TALK TO YOUR STYLIST
Before getting a drastic cut, talk to your stylist about what hairstyle and cut will fit your lifestyle, features, and face shape. Make sure you convey the look that you want before they start taking out the scissors. You can also talk it over with your stylist if you are unsure of the look you want, but now that you want to go shorter. We have also included some of our favorite looks for your inspiration.
