Growing my hair, should I cut?

My hair was cut into a shortish bob last time I went to the hairdressers.

I have since decided that a longer length suits me better so am growing it out. I don't want to go mega long but shoulder length-ish I reckon.

Should I be getting it trimmed? I don't want to lose too much length as it seems to be taking ages to grow, but know it needs a trim as the ends are really dry.

How much would you recommend off? Should I ask for one length all over? Layers have a tendency to make my hair 'pouf' out, especially at mid length.

I have attached a pic..apologies for the state of me, just dyed my roots in readiness for my hair appointment on Tuesday!

Any advice gratefully received smile

Mine grows much quicker with regular trims (I say every 3 months is enough for me) and is much healthier too. I always just say that I want to keep as much length as possible, but want everything that's dead to come off, which seems to make sense to my long suffering hairdresser!

Thanks Lady

I have been going to the same hairdresser for years and he is great, it just smarts a bit having to pay £55 odd quid for a trim!

My hair definitely needs a trimthough, the ends are really dry.

Find someone cheaper if it's just a trim !!! You do need to keep split ends at bay otherwise they will travel up the hair shafts.

I think I'll see my regular guy tomorrow and get it cut into a bit of a style, and then find someone cheaper to trim it afterwards.

Is it good? Do you use it?
