If you have split ends and don't trim them, they can split further up the shaft of the hair and damage it more, forcing you to trim more off in the end. Keep them trimmed and your hair will grow longer and healthier!

Does cutting your hair help it grow?

Trimming the ends of hair improves the health of the hair by removing split ends. If split ends are not taken care of, they make split further up the shaft of the hair. When this happens, the ends of the strands of hair are more likely to break off. By trimming, you are preventing the ends of the hair breaking off and the hair is allowed to grow longer. It doesn't improve the growth of the hair on a biological level, however; hair grows at the same rate and only fluctuates with changes in diet.

Why do people say that your hair will grow faster once you get it trimmed when hair grows at the roots and not the tips?

your hair will not grow faster by keeping the ends trimmed. it will, however, seem to grow faster. unkempt ends tend to split easily. split ends turn dry and brittle, and consequently break off, shortening the length of the hair. while trimming your ends won't cause the hair to grow faster, it will keep your hair healthy and minimize risk of breakage, which in the long run means it gets longer faster.

How do you fix split ends?

You need to get your ends trimmed off, that way they won't be able to split any farther. Don't try the shampoos that say they fix your split ends. All they do is temporarily coat the ends of your hair, which isn't the way to fix your problem. The time it takes for your hair to grow back to the length it was before your hair began to split will change for everyone depending upon how long you waited to get them trimmed, how long your hair was, and how much the ends split. Give your hair a break from the flat iron, hair dryer, curling iron, and hair color. Heat and chemicals are what caused your split ends in the first place.
