To cut or not to cut
It is commonly believed that we have to cut our hair every six to eight weeks. If you ask a woman how often she needs a haircut, she will probably tell you the same. But what if it is not so? Sometimes we can wait till our ends get so dry that we can not disguise them with hair oil. Every hairdresser will tell you that you should not wait for so long!
Unfortunately, there is no definite answer for everyone on how often do we need to cut hair. The period we have to wait until going to hairstylist depends on our hair structure, length, and a haircut. Some rules will help to understand when you need a haircut. Read them carefully, and your hair will look beautiful all the time.
