How do you know when your hair needs a cut?

i can never remember how long i leave between cuts. its now a BEAUTEOUS lenght but i think it needs a cut. for me i THINK this means it goes all pointy at the ends.

is this a sign of a trim needed - or am i imagining it? why does it go pointy?

It's the ends dryness. When the frizz ease and ghds don't get it smooth I know it's the death knell. My hairdresser is trying to get me in every 6 weeks. Never going to happen. I do think he didn't take much of last time to try and get me in sooner. Sly dog.

I go more by when my colour needs doing, I probably should go every 6 weeks but I usually mamage to stretch it out to every 8 weeks

I get mine cut when it gets really tangly. So currently, every 5 months or so

when it takes me longer than 10 minutes to do

I go when it just starts to look a bit shit no matter what I do to it and it starts to annoy me.

CountBapula beat me to it. Mine is exactly the same.

hard to style

I've not been since I was preggers with 8 mth old DD. Looking decidedly sheepdoggy now.

must depend on air, condition, length and type?

mine is straight and short/mid length. i dye it every 5 weeks or so. I can get away with 3 cuts a yr! Depends if you are keeping up a style too.

I am growing mine, just realised i haven't been since FEB oops

yep I've not been since February either but have an appointment for tomorrow and can't bloody wait.... mine's usually fine for ages and then suddenly seems to go both limp and frizzy and just looks crapola until I get it cut.

I have mine cut every 8 - 10 weeks, I make an appt when I pay at the salon otherwise I can;t get an appt when I want one.

Mine needs cutting when it starts feeling too thick. Needs a good thinning out every 8-10 weeks usually.
