Your hair is one of the first things that people notice about you, but winter weather, styling treatments and split ends can make good hair days a thing of the past. Recent research has shown that a whopping 49% of us haven’t visited a hairdresser in the past year. Looking after your hair at home is a great way to save money, but can leave your hair unhappy. The haircare experts at Crown Clinic have put together their advice for signs to look out for that mean it’s time for you to visit the professionals. Read on to find out more.
Your hair is limp and lifeless
Hair looking limp and lifeless is a key sign that it needs some looking after from a professional. If you use lots of intense conditioning treatments, or dry shampoo is your best friend on no wash days, these can all leave your hair looking less than its best.
Your hairdresser will able to give you top tips to get your lacklustre locks back on top form in no time.
Drying takes forever
If it’s been a while since you last went to the salon, you’ll probably notice that your hair takes longer to dry. If you use a hairdryer, this extra heat won’t be doing your hair any good, and may lead to damage and split ends. Ask your hairdresser to take some weight out of your hair with layers and thinning techniques, and you’ll be feeling light and bouncy again in no time.
You have split ends
Split ends are the number one enemy of a good hair day. They can make your hair frizzy, dry and brittle. The best way to get rid of split ends is to chop them off, but your hairdresser will be able to give you top tips to keep them at bay in the future. Intense conditioning treatments, avoiding heat, and staying hydrated can all help to stop split ends forming.
Your bad hair day is now a bad hair month
If your bad hair day has turned into a bad hair month, or you’re struggling to remember the last time your hair just did what you want it to, it’s definitely time to go to the hairdresser.
The haircare experts will be able to give your hair the cut and TLC it needs to get back to its shiny, bouncy best.
These signs will help you to know when it’s time to visit the hairdresser, and get your hair back on top form in no time at all.
OMG I can believe the numbers are so high of people who don’t visit the hairdressers! My hair is my crowning glory. If it isn’t right nothing on me is right.
I don’t do bad hair days. Hairdresser visit every 6 weeks. One 6 weekly is trim and colour and the next just a trim and so on. Also buy decent products used at the salon and give my hair a treatment once a week.
Shudders at the thought of anything less. It’s amazing how many people dont realise your hair grows quicker when you have regular trims too. They think the hairdresser is trying to get more money out of you by going regularly.
Also I think to find a hairdresser who works for you and stick with her. I have be been with mine since she was 19 and that was 20 years ago. She has her own salon now too, I go too
Yes sticking to one hairdresser that works for you and your hair is great.
I love how you mentioned that if your hair is taking forever to dry, it’s time to visit the hairdresser. I honestly have never though about this and it’s great little hint!
Like KEFKAT, my hair is my glory. Maybe I didn’t know about the drying tip because I’ve never experienced it since I visit the hair salon so often! I’m not sure how people don’t…. Once my hair looks even a little off, I immediately schedule a visit.
Great you visit your hairdresser regularly. Thanks for stopping by.
You know…If my hair is great I feel great no matter what. It matters so much, yet it’s so easy to get used to “bad hair” days….especially when you are a mom and everything else has more priority than your hairdos. Yet I always try to find time to visit my hairdresser, sometimes just for a blow-dry, because if I feel good in my skin, I can “serve” my family better.
I agree. A bit of TLC regularly helps us moms serve our families better.
2 reasons I go to hairdresser, split ends too. And it’s that time of the year that I need a new haircut 🙂
I also do go when the ends split and also drying takes so long! Really don’t like when I have a bad hair day it’s ruining day!
Yea I don’t like it either.
I’m definitely one of the 49% 😁😅
You’ve just reminded me I need to go to the hairdresser! It is limp and lifeless, definitely in need of some TLC
Oh great! Glad this post reminded you.
SO, I pass on 3 signs except the split ends, which i don’t really have. And I need to urgently go to a master hair dresser to make my hair full of life.
Yes, I’m one of those guilty people who probably only visit hair dresser once a year! It’s just that I spent most of the time tieing up the hair, and when the hair are up it became somewhat manageable (Or just out of sight, out of mind). I probably took my hair for granted. New year resolution is to take care of them well and go to hair dresser more often so that my hair will always look “fresh”!
That is a great new year resolution. Good luck.
My hairdresser comes to me! My hair is in amazing condition now after a few months of hard work. I don’t colour mine or anything so usually see my hairdresser every 10 weeks or so.
Oh nice Chelsea.
‘Your bad hair day turns into a bad hair month’!Haha..that is funny! But for sure it happens to me that my friend tells me I’m going overboard thus have to visit the salon!
It happens to most of us 😊
That’s for sure
Yes it does…
Awesome! My girlfriend absolutely loves articles about hairstyles. This is exactly the kind of stuff she freaks out about. Sharing with her now to see what she thinks 🙂
I go every 8 weeks these days, mainly because my grey hairs start to sprout through! I don’t always have a trim though, but I do get my colour done!
Oh nice Laura.
These are all great indicators that it’s time for a hair cut! I try to get my hair trimmed every 6 months. I am about due! 🙂
Good reminders for when it’s time to visit the hairdresser! I totally hate having split ends, it makes it more difficult for us to comb our hair and style it.
Yes it definitely does.
I prefer to get a haircut once in three months. Since I was sick, I missed my appointment this month. Your post has reminded me to schedule one soon!
Glad the post reminded you Vasundhra.
I know my daughter has a difficult time with split ends as her hair gets long. And keeping hydrated is such an important thing for the health of your hair.
Yes it is.
I love going to the hairdresser. I go every couple of months so I do not even let having split ends. I do not understand people who tend to have long but not healthy hair.
Oh good. Many neglect their hair.
Yes, my bad hair day is a bad hair month or perhaps a year now, but there is little I can do about it! 🙁 I live in a place where I simply couldn’t find a good hair stylist and now I cut my own hair myself! But am visiting a different city soon and would do some research to find a good saloon where I can give my hair some TLC! 🙂
Oh good. Hope you find a good hairdresser.
