    The longest I've gone without a trim is 2 years, but I didn't care for my hair at all (not even conditionner) and I exposed it to a big deal of sun, chlore and salt one of the summers. I had to cut three inches off to remove the totally fried end, but to actually get almost all the splits out, I needed to remove three more inches six months later. Even if I take care for my hair now, I'm still not going to stay as long without a trim, and definitely not as long without S&D!

    I have gone a couple of years without trimming in the past. Since joining the LHC I have done two years with one small trim once a year. Next year I will be doing some micro-trimming.

    The longest I've ever gone without trimming is 49 weeks. My hemline was so crooked that I had to lose 5 cm to even the hemline out. Blasted racer hairs!

    One of my few claims to fame is having gone 20 years sice my last trim. I think some people feel the need of trimming more than others. I have never had enough hair, so have never willingly cut or trimmed it!

    I'm going to say 2-3 years but I'm not entirely sure that's accurate. I dust from time to time, and if you don't count dusting, it's probably closer to 5 years. I haven't had a trim of more than 1/8" in at least 5 years.

    A year and a half, but there's no option for between 1 and 2 years.

    I went no trims from shoulder to waist +. That was 3 years. Had to trim about an inch off.

    The longest I have gone is a year. However, this year I have trimmed every 3 - 4 months to get rid of chemical damage.Next year will be my no trim year

    My longest was 22 months (almost 2 years). I finished with awful “bleah” hemline and I needed to remove three inches.
