    Just a question. If the hair is healthy and has no breakage or split ends, do you really neeeed to trim? I keep seeing trimming come up and it got me thinking... Thanks!

    Only if you want to reduce taper. Its really a matter of preference.

    Some of us trim to maintain the shape. I like a U-shape best, although mine is more of a V right now.

    So it would be ok to wait until there is an issue or at least the shorter layers can catch up? Cool

    If your hair is healthy, you like your hemline, you're not trying to get rid of damage or layers, then you really don't need a trim. I hardly ever trim and I've only actually trimmed once for some splits.

    If your hair is healthy and there is no damage or splits, then there is no need to trim it. I trim to keep my ends straight though, as I have a few racers that grow faster than the rest. It is completely up to you though

    Definitely. There's no reason to trim, if your ends are healthy and your hemline looks good to you

    I agree with everyone here, if they are not damaged there is no reason to trim! But some hair types if you dont trim them they grow to fairytale hair ends (thin ends) personally I love that look on my hair, but you may want a straighter more blunt hair cut, that may be the only reason to trim besides damage

    Thanks everyone I've been growing out a pixie and haven't had a trim since last spring so I was starting to worry. The trim last spring was to even out the back ( mullet) part. Now that part is about shoulder blades but not quite APL. The shorter bits are still hanging around my shoulders though... I do want to even it out eventually, I just don't want to lose any progress. Hairdressers seem to like my hair shorter :/
