The frequency in which you visit a hair salon depends on many factors. Different hairstyles, hair types and demands will determine when you need to stop by and get your hair looking fresh and new again. Your hair is exposed to heat and the elements on a daily basis, meaning that damage of some sort is unavoidable. No one wants dull, damaged hair when it could be easily remedied with an appointment at your local hair salon. Which is why we’re here! We’ll tell you just how often you need to visit your hair stylist to keep your hair in perfect condition.

Regular Upkeep
As stated before, regular hair maintenance is necessary for healthy locks, but the rate at which you should step into a hair salon depends on your hair. Some natural styles and various types of hair require more frequent visits than others, and we’re here to break it down for you.

If you’re an individual with damaged hair (whether it’s from heat or misuse), fine hair or have shorter hair with or without bangs, then you shouldn’t wait too long between appointments. It’s recommended by professionals that you visit your hair salon every two to four weeks to improve or maintain the health of your hair.

Do you have medium length hair that’s layered or cut into a bob? Then visit your hair stylist for a regular wash and trim every six to eight weeks to both improve the health of your hair as well as keep your cut looking sharp. Lastly, for those of you with hair that’s curly, straight or wavy and usually left untreated for whatever reason, getting a consistent trim is necessary to keep your hair growing and to prevent breakage. It’s suggested that you visit a hair salon every eight to twelve weeks for the best results.

Colour Preservation
For hair that’s been colour treated, you’ll need to visit a salon more frequently to keep your colour looking bright. If you have a few grays popping up or need your roots redone to match the rest of your hair colour, then a recurring visit every four weeks is usually suggested. However, depending on the effect you’re going for, your hair colour and your lifestyle, this can be stretched out to five or six weeks between colour treatments. If you have high contrast highlights throughout, then you only need to have them redone every three or four months. Ultimately, the colour of your hair will determine the frequency in which you need to visit your hair stylist.
