    hey, i've got fairly wavy hair and have decided to grow it long. Can anyone give any advice on the best way to grow it out and still keep it in good condition? i.e regular trims or something?

    regular trims wouldnt be efficient if you wanted maximum hair length in the shortest time.

    yeah but you would have straggly hair, not nice

    Tiny trims every 8-ish weeks. Try not to damage it with sun, dyes, straighteners much so it doesn't need cutting more.

    I grew my hair half way down my back with monthly trims in 3 years, it was always healthy. Cut it short in december though

    my hair has always been long. cut it when you need to and find a conditioner that works well with your hair.

    Do what David Beckham did. Find a style that suits your face shape for each "stage" of growing it. Then get regular cuts and go through the styles.

    If you don't brush, it will pick up static naturally and develop a "normal" frizz about it. Conditioner helps too. Brush with conditioner in as well.

    If you want to grow it, you will be okay with trims every 12 weeks (honestly). Tell the hairdresser as little as possible off! And you too will have lovely long hair in a few months'/years' time!

    I have my hair trimmed every 6 months and it's nearly all the way down my back....to keep it in good condition, you need to use loads and loads of conditioner on the ends...that'll make it easier to comb after washing. Try to leave a tiny bit of conditioner in your hair too...just don't put any on your roots though. x x x
