Regular Haircuts Keep Girls' Hair Healthy

Haircuts are great, but not all haircuts are created equal! In fact, regular haircuts are one of the best ways to keep girls' hair healthy and cut down on headaches for busy moms! Check out this guide to learn more about how regular haircuts keep girls' hair healthy.


Need for Regular Haircuts

Most people know that girls' hair grows faster than boys’, but they don’t realize how quickly their hair is growing. In just one month, a girl’s hair can grow between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch. Over three months that can add up to over 2 inches! At that rate, it doesn’t take long for healthy hair to turn into a rat’s nest if it isn’t cut regularly—which is why your daughter should have a regular haircut appointment with her hairstylist. Weekly haircuts not only help keep styling easy and consistent but also remove dry and damaged ends, making it easier to maintain and keep healthy. If you want your daughter to have healthy, beautiful locks and keep her scalp from getting irritated, you should seriously consider scheduling weekly haircuts or trims.

What else can you do to ensure healthy hair

Make sure you wash young children’s hair with shampoo made for them! Shampoos for adults are too harsh and can strip their natural oils. Stripping oils can cause the hair to become brittle and break easier. Cookie Cutters has several kid-friendly shampoo and conditioners that have the correct pH balance for healthy hair. Our shampoos also get kids excited to wash their hair. For example, the Cookie Cutters Berry Shimmer smells amazing!  Next, be sure to brush long hair with a WetBrush, which if you are not familiar with, we discussed in a previous blog post. The WetBrush will glide through the hair and make hair brushing much more enjoyable. Finally, brushing your child's hair before bed can also go a long way in helping to keep those tangles down.

We hope these simple pointers help you keep that long hair happy and healthy with little to no headache on either of your parts!  As always, if you have any questions or comments feel free to reach out to one of our stylists on the web or in person and we will be happy to help!
