    I selected "Trim when needed". I personally micro trim every month, but thats what I think my hair needed this year.
    I really wanted to even my hem line and I really wanted to thicken my length up. I think everyone is different and its really dependent on how "damaged" your own hair.
    And how well your hair responds to the elements. Mine splits easy and I get bent ends a lot. I am also trying to grow out chemical color.
    So trim every month it is for me, I think it also really matters how much you are trimming off each time too.

    My hair needs to be trimmed regularly. Otherwise the ends get absolutely destroyed, and splits travel upward. I've found splits open as far as 4-5 inches from the bottom.

    I want my hair always to look neatly groomed with a blunt hemline so I microtrim every 6 weeks. I still get 6-8" of growth every year.

    I voted for regular trims. For me, regular trims might be every couple of months, or twice a year, or even once a year, depending on whether I want thicker ends or more length, but trimming does keep my ends from getting too "grabby". They are getting grabby now, but it's almost a year since my last trim at the end of last December. Looking forward to a trim in two weeks

    Thanks everyone for there answers! It is helpful to see what everyone does.
    I've joined the No Trim Challenge for 2018 so I will keep up with that. And hopefully see much longer hair next year.
    I feel like my hair is healthy enough to not need trimming that often. But I guess I worry that since I do see splits it will hamper my progress. I suppose as long as I don't see my hair breaking off it will be fine. I will just baby it until it gets to my goal and then I will probably trim more frequently to get blunt ends.

    I've been doing micro-trims since I'm trying to grow out all the chemical dyed bits I have left in my hair. I joined the NTC18 as well, so I won't be doing trims starting in January. If I see splits, I might snip them a little, but I don't get them often so I just play it by ear most of the time.

    Right now I'm just growing my hair without trimming, because I want to gain as much length as possible! But if my ends started to look bad I would definitely trim!
