I have an appointment at the hairdressers for a full head of foils and a good cut. After years of dying it at home and avoiding hairdressers for absolutely no reason other than it makes me a bit awkward, I've realised that for my hair to actually look good, I need to bite the bullet and go. If you have a full head of foils, how often do you go to get the roots touched up? I'm guessing you don't get a full head of foils every time? And how often do you have a trim if you want to grow your hair? I'm a complete novice when it comes to hair and have no idea why but really nervous about going to the hairdresser!
Once every 6 weeks - though I'm stretching it to every 7 weeks now I'm on maternity leave. I alternate between full head and half head at each appointment and only get a trim with the ends skimmed off. My hair grows quick otherwise I think I could leave the cut to every other visit. - so cut every 12 weeks.
I get a Brazilian straightening, a cut and full head of highlights every 4 months and in between a half head.and a trim . I personally hate going to the hairdressers but love having good hair . The Brazilian straightening makes my home hair faffing minimum and I don't need the blow outs i used to get for special occasions.
I have a single colour all over, so once at 3 months I get it done again together with the Olaplex treatment. I get a cut once at 8 weeks or less, and tbh I never wash my hair at home, always get it blowdried at the salon. For me life's too short to wash my hair at home and blow dry it which is pure torture.
