The answer is false. It is said that cutting your ends off makes your hair grow faster, it can appear to grow faster because if your ends are damaged and split they will probably break very easily. So even if your hair grows fast, if your ends are damaged it will appear not to grow at all. Think of it as your hair growing a centimeter and then a centimeter getting chopped off, not much length then.
I am quite prone to split ends and hated getting my hair cut because the length was getting chopped off but recently I bought my own pair of hair dressing scissors. I recommend this to anyone trying to grow their hair because if you get your ends cut off at a salon they often cut an inch off the end of your hair, well what if your split ends aren't all at the end of your hair? I remember getting my hair trimmed hoping all my split ends would be gone, but I could still find many. Now with my hair dressing scissors I can pin point split ends and snip them off before they start splitting all the way up the hair shaft.
For anyone who plans on cutting their own ends from now on, in case you didn't already know, using the hair dressing scissors is very important so you get a clean cut. If you use your old kitchen scissors you will be more prone to the hair splitting easily because they aren't as sharp as the hair dressing ones. They aren't too expensive either, mine were £7.10p from Boots.
Anyway I hope you are enjoying my blog so far, I have had it for about a month now if there are any suggestion on how to make it better then don't hesitate to drop a comment : D
